Up Up and Away

This humorous and light-hearted but simultaneously tear-inducing film is a popular choice with both adults and children. If you want to go cute but not cringe, dress up as two of the most adorable characters in Disney: Carl and Russell.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

Carl is easy to replicate. Throw on a suit, grab a walking stick and a pair of glasses and get into character. The sash is definitely the centrepiece of Russell’s costume so as long as you can get your hands on one of these and at least some of the 47 badges that occupy it, you’re half way there. Bonus points go to the couple who complete the look with the shirt and hat including Wilderness Explorer logos. Finish Russell’s costume with a backpack and bunch of balloons of your choice

Finally, borrow a Golden Retriever to play Dug and you’ll definitely be in the finalists for ‘Best Dressed’.


A Couple of Crocs

If there’s one thing that really divides a room, it’s people talking politics. Another thing that will be sure to do it is people talking Crocs. Some people love Crocs for their easy-to-wear nature: slide them on, bounce around on the small pockets of air, spill water all over them with no consequences – they’re good as new! Others, however, simply despise Crocs and can’t quite fathom why anyone would choose to wear them.

If you’re feeling causing a little controversy this Halloween, why not dress your partner’s entire bodies in these room-dividing shoes? Horrify the Croc-haters and simply make everyone else laugh by dressing as a Croc couple this Halloween; we promise you’ll be the only couple of Crocs in the room.

is anyone interested in a #couplescostume with me this year? it could be completely platonic if that’s an issue

A post shared by libby’s crocs (@crocsaroundtheclock) on

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

Having never considered how to make a life-size Croc before, your guess is as good as ours. Maybe buy multiple crocs and adorn yourself with them. Close enough, and then, lucky you – you’ll have lots of crocs!



No one seems to know why dolls are so innately sinister, but it’s common knowledge that they just are. If you have the artistic talent to nail this costume like this pair, then we have no doubt you’ll be sure to creep a lot of people out this Halloween.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

This high-impact look is any makeup artist’s dream, so if you’re not sure you’ve got what it takes, just ask your most creative friend.

Complete this look by widening your eyes, tilting your head and talking like a small possessed child. There’s something incredibly disturbing about two adults dressed and acting like china dolls…


Wilma and Fred Flintstone

A classic choice for the Flintstone fans among us, and really, who isn’t a fan of the Flintstones?

This couple’s Halloween costume is a great choice for its cheap and easy nature – you don’t even need to worry about shoes! Plus, the Flintstones have such a distinctive look so there’s almost no chance of that dreaded “and you are…?” conversation – so it’s a win-win situation.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

For Wilma: find a cheap white dress to slice up and complete the look with some chunky pearls and a bright orange wig!

Whilst Fred’s outfit consists of only two items, his patterned orange dress is undoubtedly harder to get your hands on. We suggest buying an oversized orange T-shirt sprucing it up by cutting an old black piece of clothing into small disks before jumping on the sewing machine!

Alternatively, Amazon is littered with Wilma and Fred costumes – that might be slightly easier!


Two Halves Make a Whole

For the couples who truly complete each other!

If you’re ‘avo’-ing a baby, then why not make the most of your bump and transform it into an avocado stone? Everyone loves babies and people are totally obsessed with avocados, so there’s really nothing more adorable than this couple’s Halloween costume.

If you and your partner don’t have the assets to pull this off then consider creating the outfit below instead.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

All you need is string cardboard, paint and a couple of hours of your time. Dress in full black beneath your avocado costumes so not to detract from the costume.

If you love avocados, you’ll adore the avocado proposal trend that’s sweeping the internet.


Cruella DeVille

With a name that plays on the words ‘cruel’ and ‘devil’, Cruella DeVille is possibly one of the most evil characters in history. Send shivers down spines and make hairs stand on end with this awesome couple’s Halloween costume.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

For the Dalmatian, grab a suitable onesie and some black and white face paint. If you’re a family, repeat this step for the number of children you have – so long as you’re a party smaller than 102 people, otherwise you may have to rethink this one.

Cruella DeVil demands more attention, but the good news is that the makeup artists among you can really go to town on this, creating a seriously wicked look. Back comb your hair or add a wild black and white wig and ensure you have those eerie silk red gloves and that dreaded fur coat and you’ll be instantly.

Now there’s only one question remaining: who’s playing bad cop?


Homer and His True Love

If you love your partner like Homer loves doughnuts then it’s great to hear you’re marrying the right person!

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

All that’s necessary for this one is a Homer mask, a doughnut costume and Homer’s go to outfit: a blue tee black trousers.


Snapchat Filter

Be Snapchat ready all night long by dressing as a Snapchat filter! Although most popular with the younger generations, these filters are easily recognised by all.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

Head over to YouTube to see like-minded Snapchatters’ tutorials on how to create these 3D filters.



The Halloween costume that everyone’s talking about. This couple have been praised for their creativity, originality and most of all… brutal honesty. This is the perfect costume for the couple who aren’t so keen on the filter fad.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

One half of the party needs to buy a wig whilst the other needs the necessary make-up and accessories to recreate your favourite Snapchat filter. Make sure you’re both wearing a similar outfit and then created the cardboard signs and here you have it: your hilarious couple’s Halloween costume.


The Tooth and Her Fairy

As children, earning a pound for your unwanted teeth was always an exciting prospect. As adults, the idea of a mythical creature creeping under your pillow when you’re sleeping is a tad disturbing, and therefore an ideal costume ideal for Halloween.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

You can play with this couple’s Halloween costume by reversing the traditional gender roles and generally dressing slightly OTT like couple number one. Alternatively, create a genuinely creepy look that couple three opted for.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

All you need for this one is a wand, a broomstick, a scar on your forehead and Harry’s house colours.

For the snitch, find a flattering gold dress and if you’re feeling really bold, keep it in your wardrobe for the next time you need a statement piece. Maybe take the wings off though.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

Grab yourselves a spacesuit and a lot of green paint. We’d love to say this is going to be a quick one, but realistically you’ll want to keep the day free for this glittery paint job – it might take a while.


Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell

This gorgeous celebrity couple aced the Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell look. American dancer Julianne Hough and her husband, the professional ice hockey player Brooks Laich, showed off their fab outfits on Instagram back in 2014.

Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell… @brookslaich

A post shared by Julianne Hough (@juleshough) on

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

Whilst it’s unlikely, you may already own a red suit. If not, get yourself one of these alongside that shiny silk neckerchief Austin seems to never be without. Any Austin Powers fan will tell you, Austin’s teeth and glasses are integral to his identity, so these are also a must.

As for Miss Shagwell, find yourself a pair of knee length boots with a chunky platform alongside her signature a tight blue playsuit – you’ll probably have to head to a vintage or fancy dress shop for these.



Have you left your couple’s Halloween costume until the very last minute? Might you also have some old sheets that you don’t mind repurposing as a couple’s Halloween costume? Great! We’ve got just the costume for you both.

Create this couple’s Halloween costume:

There’s no need to even leave the house for this one, simply grab a couple of white sheets and a marker pen, draw on some eyes and throw them over your heads. You’re not going to win ‘Best Dressed’ but it’s the thought that counts…

Warning: expect a stuffy night and muffled conversations. Maybe take a pair of scissors along if you want to see anything.
