With Halloween around the corner, you might be scrambling to come up with the perfect couples Halloween costume for you and your beau. Fear not, I’ve gathered 20 of my absolute favourite couples costumes for 2022!

With parties being a bit limited this year due to the current circumstances, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still dress up and have fun with your significant other (or maybe you’re looking for a nice family halloween costume idea instead?).

Either way, we haven’t forgotten about the spirit of Halloween and all of the fun that comes with dressing up.

Whether you want to scare onlookers, make them laugh, or just look super cute, this list of 20 couples costumes for Halloween is sure to inspire you!

1 – Princess Peach and Mario Couples Halloween Costume

This super cute look is easy to pull off with the right dress and some denim overalls for him! Make yourself a gold crown and a fake moustache to get the look nailed down.

2 – Little Red Riding Hood and Wolf

This special effects Halloween makeup is perfect for a creepier version of Little Red Riding Hood. Of course, you need a wolf mate to complete the ensemble too!

3 – A Christmas Story Costume

Everyone loves a little nostalgia!  This Ralphie bunny costume and the leg lamp from the classic movie A Christmas Story brings back so many feelings. Definitely one of my favourite couples Halloween costumes for sure.

4 – Twins from The Shining

I love that this couple chose to both dress as the creepy little girls from The Shining. Who said your man can’t play dress-up every once in a while?!

5 – Disney’s UP Couples Costume

Keiko always does Halloween costumes so well! I just love this UP inspired couple’s costume that she and her boyfriend DIYed. So creative and colourful!

6 – Ice Ice Baby Costumes

Some may have to do a double take to get this costume idea, but this Ice Ice Baby costume is too cute! Of course, you’ll need a baby to pull it off, but other than that it can be an easy DIY project. You might also like our post of 15 Unique DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids and Babies.

As a throwback to the 80’s, why not be the ultimate power couple and go as Barbie and Ken? Some bright pink gear and retro styling makes this a piece of cake to achieve.

Did someone order pizza?!  This DIY costume is sure to draw attention. I mean, you can’t really miss a giant piece of pizza. Throw in the delivery boy and you’ve got your costumes locked down.

9 – Peter Pan and His Shadow

I had to do a double take to get this costume idea. The shadow is such a unique twist on making a Peter Pan outfit into a couples costume. Such a unique idea!

10 – Bob Ross and Happy Little Tree

It may be the artist in me, but I simply love this idea. Bob Ross is a pretty easy costume to pull off. Just grab yourself a wig and button-up shirt and you man is pretty much done.

The “happy little tree” adds that extra unique touch that any Bob Ross fan would recognize.

11 – Til Death Do Us Part

A violent twist on our favourite classic fast food icons — Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar. These definitely aren’t your kid-friendly mascots!

Dress up like the dead! These super stylish skeletons seem to have risen from the grave.

I love the subtle accessorizing with the headpiece and boutonniere to make this costume a little less basic. Some skeleton makeup is easy to do with our tutorial!

15 – Operation and Doctor Couple Costume

This would be a great option for many couples and you could even change the flower costume to one of your choice.

These classic characters come to life with the right outfits!  If your man is tall, try this Jack Skellington costume idea and join him as Sally in your raggy dress. The makeup is the best part and pretty simple to accomplish!
