7. Fix-it Felix and Sergeant Calhoun – Taking more inspiration from the Movie Wreck It Ralphyou could do the love story couple of Fix-it Felix with Sergeant Calhoun. Felix will need a tool belt, hammer and hat while Sergeant Calhoun wears all black! 

8. Minion & GruThe movie Despicable Me offers prime costume opportunities! For a minion – a yellow hoodie with overalls and goggles gives you a great costume! Your spouse can be Gru by wearing all black and adding a grey and black striped scarf

9. Minions For more Despicable Me fun – you could both be minions! This couple kept it simple with yellow t-shirts, jeans, goggles and suspenders!

10. Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum – There is no more classic pair of characters than Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. To pull off this costume, get matching red hats, yellow shirts and a big blue bow tie!

Costume Ideas For Couples

11. Magician & Rabbit – This couple got really creative with their coordinating costumes! For the magician – a top hat and suit coat keeps it very simple. For the rabbit – just wear all white (preferably something with texture), add a white head wrap for ears and attach a cotton tail. 

12. Typical Tourists – This costume couldn’t get any easier! Get your tackiest Hawaiian shirt, wear socks with sandals, add a floppy sun hat and grab maps, sunglasses and cameras for accessories. Easy! 

13. Switch Looks – How clever is this? The couple dressed up as EACH OTHER! All you have to do is raid each others closets. Check out the link to see the before and after pictures – it is hilarious! 

14. Grow Old Together Raid Grandma and Grandpa’s closet to add to your age. Add some grey to your hair, grab a walker or cane and you have a costume! 

15. Amazing Race Contestants – I am a HUGE fan of the TV show The Amazing Race and being a contestant for a Halloween costume is super easy! Just wear workout clothes with a coordinating color and a large hiking backpack. The key to this costume is the Amazing Race envelopes which you can get for free from our Amazing Race Group Date Night! 

Quick And Easy Couples Costume Ideas

16. Piñata & Birthday Girl  This idea made me giggle! The birthday girl just needs pigtails and a bat (I like that this couple did a blow up one so no injuries!). For the piñata it looks like they did rows of colorful paper that they ripped into chunks. So fun! 

17. Operation Game How fun is this? For a surgeon costume, all you need are scrubs and maybe some doctor accessories. For the game board, just cut the shapes from the game board onto paper and attach to a nude-colored shirt. This couple even added a red nose and boxers! 

18. Hunter & Deer – This is a costume many people can find right in their closet! For the hunter – pull out your camouflage attire. Then, for the deer – attach some ears to a headband and add a little face paint. You are set! 

19. Internet Browsers Some people are so creative! For the technology-savvy couple you could go as Firefox and Internet Explorer! 

20. Cosmo & Wanda – With wings and a fun wig, this couple transformed into creative characters from the cartoon Fairly Odd Parents!

Couples Costume Ideas That Are Quick And Easy
21. Silent Film Stars – Use face paint to pale your faces and then wear period black and white clothing. Finally, make some silent film cards. The tricky thing about this costume is staying in character all evening! 

22. American Gothic Painting This classic painting can become an easy costume! Check out the original painting to match your attire and then grab a large frame and pitchfork for a unique and artsy costume! 

23. Pair of Dice I have done this costume before and it was super easy! Cut out the bottom of 2 boxes and add holes for the head and arms. Then, cover it in white butcher paper and add dots. It was easy to do but we got a lot of compliments! 

24. Roller-Coaster Riders I love optical illusion costumes! This post explains step by step how they created this silly roller-coaster riders costume from things they already had at home. 

25. Price is Right Contestants Just make your own price-guessing signs, wear a college sweatshirt (optional) and you have a totally recognizable costume! You can even use our free printable name tags from our Price Is Right Date Night to add to the costume!

  1. #8 and #9… NOOOO. My Facebook feed is already flooded with minion everything; don’t give people ideas on how to use minions in other ways!

    On a different note – I love that Oreo costume 🙂

  2. Some great and cute ideas!! Nerds, so cute!! But #20 isn’t tooth fairies. They’re cosplaying as characters from a kid cartoon called Fairly Odd Parents: they’re fairy godparents. Still a cute idea, tooth fairies 😉
