Looking for matching family costume ideas instead? We’ve got lots of those too!

1 – Princess Peach and Mario

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 big bad 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 favorite couples and such a great idea!.

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?! It offers a unique twist and allows you to both be the main characters!

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. Bonus points for making an actual house! So creative and colourful!

6 – Ice Ice Baby

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.


You could also go the route of the Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie version of Barbie and Ken like this couple did… down to the smallest details!

8 – Pizza and Delivery Boy

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.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas really went all out with this take on these iconic characters. I had to do a double take!

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!

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!

24 – The Little Mermaid

You may have seen photos of Ariel and Prince Eric, but have you considered teaming up with her BFF, Flounder instead? I love this idea because a “couple” doesn’t always have to mean a love interest!
