13 Couples Halloween Costumes For

The year isn’t even over yet, and it's already been pretty crazy. From the truly disturbing (Kim Davis) to the incredibly uplifting (Pizza Rat), the pop culture, political happenings, and more of have spawned some awesome Halloween costume ideas for couples.

I’m a firm believer in couples costumes, considering I’ve been coupled for the past five Halloweens. It’s just more fun if you and your significant other go together — plus, it opens up a lot more options, costume-wise. People might not get it if you go as Wayne from Wayne’s World by yourself, but it'll make total sense if you have Garth rocking along with you. I’m not saying that all couples have to do the couples costume thing. Sometimes you have your own idea you wanna run with. I feel you. But if you’re struggling to think of a costume, maybe a couples idea is the way to go. It’s always better to have someone to laugh with if your costume is a bit on the silly side.

Whether you’re going for the literal or the abstract, here are a few ideas inspired by the people and events of that will take you and your significant other to Halloween costume greatness.

1. Imperator Furiosa And Max Rockatansky From Mad Max: Fury Road

They weren’t a couple in the film (which was a good thing), but they still hung together to take down King Immortan Joe. If you really want to go all out with your costume creation, Mad Max Costumes has a lot of detailed tutorials and suggestions for both Furiosa and Max.

Vintage Goggles, $4, Amazon

Furiosa requires a lot of belts, a ruched shirt, some goggles, and black eye makeup, among other things. Max would be nothing without his iconic leather jacket and boots.

2. Pizza And Rat

Some people saw a rat in over his head. Others saw a hard-working single father trying to feed his teenage ninja turtle children. Either way, Pizza Rat deserves all the costume consideration in

Rat costumes can be a bit ugly, so I suggest a cute rat kigurumi and a pizza costume to go with it.

Just don’t try to push your pizza-costumed significant other down any stairs.

3. Same-Sex Marriage

One of the most awesome things that happened in so far was same-sex marriage becoming legal in the United States.

His/His Wedding Band, starts at $20, Overstock

Throw on your best rainbow and pride gear — like the “Love Wins” or “Don’t Hate” T-shirts, rainbow slip-ons, or coordinated his/his or hers/hers rings.

4. Donald Trump And America

Donald Trump loves America. Like, really loves it. So much so that he’s been subjecting us to his combover on regular TV and not just The Apprentice lately. All your significant other would need for the Trump outfit would be a blue suit and a wig and you could dress in your best red, white, and blue garb.

Donald Trump Wig, $23, Buy Costumes

Or you could go a different route, and be Donna t. Rumpshaker and cool guy America. I can’t make this stuff up.

Donna T. Rumpshaker Costume, $70, Yandy; Adult Stars and Stripes Party Suit, $, Spirit Halloween

5. Google And Alphabet

For the last 17 years, Google has just been Google. But in , it also became Alphabet, because why not?

Google T-shirt, $, Amazon; Foam Letter Magnets, $16, Amazon

Get yourself or your significant other a Google T-shirt and then glue some of those foam alphabet magnets on a white T-shirt or dress to complete the change. All of your IT friends will really dig it!

6. Cookie And Lucious Lyon From Empire

has been the year of Empire. Or rather, the year of Cookie being a bad-ass motha and your new favorite TV queen. Either way, she and her ex-hubby Lucious would make for fabulous Halloween costumes or daily outfits.

For Cookie, you need some heels, an animal-print dress and a faux fur coat. For Lucious, you’ll need a slick suit, a fedora and lots of attitude.

7. Finn And Rey From Star Wars

I cannot tell you how excited I am for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to premiere at the tail end of the year. But just because the movie isn’t out yet doesn’t mean Halloween will pass by Star-Wars-less. You could always go the Han and Leia route, or you could up your game with Rey and Finn.

I highly suggest making Rey’s costume, since the commercial one is a bit blah. You’ll mostly need a lot of beige clothing and some beige material to wrap around — Cosplay Savvy has a pretty good breakdown of the materials. And don’t forget her goggles and staff.

Rey Costume, $30, Amazon; Goggles, $14, Amazon; Staff, $21, Amazon

Finn is pretty easy, with his dark pants and shirt and brown leather jacket. Hot for Tatooine, but great for cool fall nights. And he’ll need the Skywalker Lightsaber, of course.

Leather Jacket, $20, Amazon; Luke Skywalker Lightsaber, $14, Target

8. Zombie Cubs Fans

For once, it’s actually a good year to be a Chicago Cubs fan! The team hasn’t won an NL title since , and hasn’t won the World Series since , so people have been waiting a long time to see them play as good as they have been. And since the last time they won, most of our grandparents weren’t even alive, you can put a little zombie spin on the fandom.

Zombie Makeup Kit, $6, Amazon

Snag some Cubs’ jerseys (you can get them from the official site or try to find some at a thrift store), and then apply your zombie makeup. This tutorial can show you how to achieve that undead look.

9. The Whip And The Nae Nae

This is one of those “Haha, I see what you did there” sort of costumes. Just like “Gangnam Style” dominated Halloween in , so too should ’s dance craze — the Whip and the Nae Nae.

Basically, just write "Whip" on one shirt and "Nae Nae" on another with fabric paint or fabric marker, and prepare to do your respective dances all night long.

Tulip Mini Writers, $15, Amazon

Owen And Claire From Jurassic World

One of my favorite movies this year was Jurassic World. And the movie’s dynamic duo make for a perfect couples costume.

Purple Tank, $5, Buckle; White Blouse, $15, H&M; Red Wig, $15, Amazon; Velociraptor, $19, Amazon

For stylish Claire, you’ll need a white midi skirt, a purple tank, a white blouse, and of course, those controversial heels. You can also carry around your cell phone (since she used hers a lot), and throw on a ginger wig to complete the look. For Owen, grab a gray button-down, some jeans, a brown tactical vest, some boots, and your trusty Raptor pal Blue.

Right Shark And Left Shark

Luckily, Katy Perry and commercialism have pretty much taken care of this costume for you. Curiously enough, I found way more Left Shark costumes than Right Shark — though they’re literally the same costume.

Shark Costume, $69, ebay

Shark Costume, $68, Amazon

The store-bought versions can be a bit pricey, but TheSorryGirls also have a great YouTube tutorial on how to make your own. One of you will have be on point, dance-moves-wise.

Netflix And Chill

I mean, what else would you be for Halloween? "Netflix and chill" has gotten so big that my mom even knows what it means — and there are a few ways you can put it together.

Personally, I’d go with the very literal interpretation. There’s still time to order a pair of custom shirts and you can just wear pajamas or something more bedroom-worthy with them.

Ariana Grande And A Doughnut

Ah, yes the infamous Ariana Grande doughnut licking incident of People will get it, I promise.

I tried to re-create one of Ariana’s outfits from when she played the Forum, because with the cat ears, it’s basically a costume already. Get a black romper, thigh-high boots, a ponytail wig, and a mic to transform yourself into the diva. Your SO will rock a doughnut costume like it’s nobody's business.

Gremlins: Whether you choose to dress up as cute and cuddly Gizmo or devious after-dark Gremlins, you’ll be perfectly on point with your s retro vibe. If it’s the former, though, just make sure no one throws water in your face or feeds you after midnight. (via @maytzehcano)

Napoleon Dynamite: Embrace your inner outcasts and head out as this oddly lovable, highly mismatched set of weirdos. And if you dress as Napoleon himself, you might want to practice drawing ligers in advance. (via The FW)

50 Shades of Grey: For better or worse, it took movie theaters by storm this year, and at the end of the day it’s a conversation starter. There are two ways to tackle a 50 Shades costume: the expected way and the *awesome* way. (via PopSugar)

Second, what a creative way to show the Invisible Woman's powers. And finally, killer crossover costume here with the second Invisible Woman in Hulk form. This group costume is full of win!


Fast Food Mascots Group Costume

Apparently, mascots help sell food (and Halloween costumes, for that matter)! And now that we've got cereal costumes out of the way, the list just wouldn't be complete without the fast food mascot group costume pictured here. It also looks like these guys didn't take themselves too seriously, which adds another dimension of hilarity to the getup. Shout out to Wendy for a laugh!


Futurama Group Costume

Brain Slug commands you to like this group costume. And, wow! They took this group costume a step further when they had Bender steal Fry's wallet in the picture. Did you catch that?!

Jack and Sally

Tim Burton has a special way of doing things no matter what he touches. In the same creepy vein as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of his greatest works and a true masterpiece in the eyes of fans. For this reason, Halloween and The Nightmare Before Christmas are joined at the hip. Let it be known far and wide that Nightmare Before Christmas costumes are always in style!

Johnny Depp Characters

Johnny Depp Group Costume

A very creative trend that's happening with group costumes is choosing an actor and highlighting the best costumes from their career. Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams, and Will Ferrell are all easy targets for this type of group getup given their costume-centric roles through time. In this installment, these ladies nailed a Johnny Depp tribute!

Jurrasic Park

Jurassic Park Group Costume

When Jurassic World left a dino-sized footprint on the motion picture scene in , a noticeable uptick in JP cosplay could be seen at Comic Con and other geeky gatherings around the country. In , we can look for a similar trend for Halloween. Whether you want to go as the classic characters from Jurassic Park or the new ones from Jurassic World, you really can't go wrong in with an ensemble like this.

Kill Bill

Kill Bill Group Costume

The Crazy 88 battle in Kill Bill captured the Tarantino style better than just about any other scene in his vast and illustrious career.

Years later, calling back memories to a fan favorite like this is always fair game of group costumes!

Legends of the Hidden Temple

Legends of the Hidden Temple Group Costume

Remember, nostalgia is in like Flynn this year! This Legends of the Hidden Temple group costume will surely earn some high fives at the bar or Halloween party among young adults this year.

With a simple custom t-shirt and helmet, you could easily nail this look for relatively cheap to boot.

Lego Group

Legos Group Costume

Cosplaying as variants of LEGO is a BIG trend in , but let's be honest, this group really takes home the blue ribbon. We're counting a dozen here, now that is commitment! Got to love the inclusion of some Halloween-themed LEGO characters and even some unexpected additions, like Tiger Woods. If you are a committed cosplayer, constructing this LEGO group costume would be a huge winner!


Loofas Group Costume

The best part about a loofah group costume like this is how easy it is to pull off. Not to mention the vibrant colors! For a group of gals looking to save their money for a night on the town and who also want something functional and easy to move around in, this costume is a no-brainer. Just be careful not to get caught in the rain or there is really no telling what might happen!

Mad Max

Mad Max Group Costume

When it comes to post-apocalyptic flicks, you really have hundreds to choose from. But one of them arguably towers above most of the horde as a titan of innovation. That's Mad Max. With roots as deep as , this film set the pace, motifs, and style for a genre. With costume options run amuck, all you really need to get started is some leather. Creative expression sold separately, so go nuts!

Mad Men

Mad Men Group Costume

Did anyone else just double take and think this was a screen shot from Mad Men? Now this is what group costuming is all about! You want to walk into the room and make everyone think they are back in the s for just a moment. Isn't that the magic of a good Halloween costume in general? If your Mad Men group costume looks anything like this, people will be very impressed! We'll drink to that.

Mario Kart

Mario Kart Group Costume

When it comes to Mario Kart, there are a lot of friends out there who take great pride in their skills. In fact, at HalloweenCostumes.com, we have a Mario Kart tournament once a year, so maybe we're a bit biased here. But at the end of the day, creativity is everything when it comes to group getups, so we had to include this awesome take on Mario Kart somewhere for the list to be complete.


Minions Group Costume

Minions are always up to no good, which makes them natural shoe-ins for groups looking to have a bit of fun this Halloween. If you knock something over, hey, you're a Minion. It's understandable! If you eat way too much candy, yep you called it. You're a Minion. Just shrug it off and have a great time. This is the year of the Minion after all! Know one will judge you for mischief makingthat much.

MODOK and Warrior Scientists

MODOK and Group Costume

In a year where Marvel Superheroes come in plenty, finding fringe characters that not everyone will know gives you a chance to show your Marvel prowess. Like this MODOK group costume above, the curiosity of people passing by will be piqued in no time. So for comic book geeks like so many of us out there, finding a lesser known superhero or villain can be a real conversation starter.


Muppets Group Costume

Muppets are forever when it comes to Halloween, but in they are even more relevant with the new Muppets TV show hitting the tube in September. In mockumentary style, the show will break down the fourth wall to show the internal dialogue of each character, similar to The Office. This will arguably make the characters more relatable than ever, making this a great costume option.

Ninja Turtles

Ninja Turtles Group Costume

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle group costumes are up there in the top ten group costumes of any given year. The best part about these turtles in a half shell is their cross demographic relevance. Whether you are a group of girls, guys, or even babies, this is a good option for a group costume any year. While was the year of the rebooted movie, is still fertile ground for a TMNT group costume.


Orcs Group Costume

If you didn’t laugh at this costume, you might not be a LOTR fan. This is one adorable and incredibly creative take on a Lord of the Rings group Halloween costume that you know made the family photo album for years to come. Any time you can take a group costume friendly flick like the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit series and make it somehow new like this, you are sure to win!


Pac-Man Group Costume

While Pac-Man is one of the oldest video game characters in history, his relevance on Halloween is eternal. In , Pixels brought this classic character back into the forefront. And while reviews for the movie were not great, any time the public gets another look at Pac-Man, they are reminded of all those hours spent on the joystick. This makes a prime year to dust off the Pac-Man group costume.


Plastics Group Costume

If you are still trying to make “Fetch” happen, a Plastics from Mean Girls group Halloween costume is a modern throwback worth considering in Nostalgia comes in layers it seems, with even decades' old movies somehow falling under the rosy retrospection you feel for older brands and movies. This is one of those instant classics with a cult following and makes for a good group costume regardless of the year.

Price is Right

Price is Right Group Costume

Come on down! This Price is Right costume hits the mark perfectly. The contestants all have the recognizable name tags and bids, the showcase model looks as beautiful as ever, but, wait … two hosts? Bob AND Drew?! Hey, that's okay! This group costume pays homage to the best cure for a sick day home from school, back then AND now in Other suggestions include making more personalized t-shirts, like "Pick Me, Drew, It's My Birthday!"

Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo Group Costume

Even if your family doesn't match up perfectly with Scooby and the gang, there are ways of making it work. This dad isn't afraid to dress as Velma for Halloween! If you have more people than five for your group Halloween costume this , you can always throw in a few ghosts and ghouls. This family turned their wagon into the Mystery Machine, perfect for protecting the candy all the way home from trick-or-treating.

Shark Week

Shark Week Group Costume

Remember that week when you never left your couch? If you a Shark Week fiend, that might even be several years in the last 10 or so. Shark Week has become one of those phenomena that can’t quite be summed up other than saying, “What’s not to like about sharks?” These ladies took the fandom a step further with the Shark "Day of the" Week group costume. Let’s just hope they don’t run into any tornadoes!


Shrek Group Costume

Even if makes you feel old to admit, the original Shrek is not a recent movie anymore, which lands it square in the ranks of nostalgia. Like, "remember when the babysitter took us to see Shrek?" In this costume, we see Puss in Boots, Fiona, Shrek, and one party-worn looking Donkey. Hey, we even see some fairy tale characters in the background. Now, start practicing those accents.

Slave Leia

Star Wars Group Costume

Alert! Alert! This is one scandalous group costume! While we say that Star Wars is relevant every year, the release of The Force Awakens this December helps make the rest of the world agrees with us. Celebrate one of the most-watched scenes in science-fiction history with a group of over a dozen Slave Leia's. Hey, Jabba is back there, too. I bet you hadn't even noticed

Star Wars Bounty Hunters

Star Wars Bounty Hunters Group Costume

Who doesn’t want to be a Star Wars bounty hunter at least one night out of the year? Seriously though, while Boba Fett was only on the screen for a few scenes, he made a lasting impression on the Star Wars universe, making him an unforgettable character worthy of replication. This group used their creativity to imagine new takes on the bounty hunter look and nailed it.


Steampunk Group Costume

You might have thought the Steampunk craze was just a passing fad, but, boy, were you wrong! Have you been to any conventions or Renaissance Faires lately? The mechanical, yet old fashioned, but kind of futuristic, and kind looks like a train type fashion is here to stay! So pull out your favorite gears, chains, leather straps, and weird goggles, and just go as "Steampunk" this Halloween You can try a theme, too! Like Steampunk Avengers or Steampunk Mean Girls. It'd be fun!

Trolls Dolls

Troll Dolls Group Costume

Like Beanie Babies, Pogs, or Tamagotchi, Troll Dolls are one toy you will have a hard time forgetting. Harping once again on the nostalgia beat, this group getup will give you the “Oh, now that’s clever!” reaction you are looking for. Everyone who had a toy or two knows their silly, frilly hair and bedazzled belly buttons, and will clamor around to take a picture without hesitation.

Will Ferrell Costumes

Will Ferrell Group Costume

It looks like these ladies are keeping up a tradition that seems to be a growing trend. If you remember, they look to be the same group who did Johnny Depp costumes earlier in this roundup. Will Ferrell seems like a shoe-in for a group costume motif following his most memorable costumes through his career, and they nailed this one again. What other celebrities could fit this mold? We see Buddy the Elf, Mugatu, and, the best, Ron Burgundy?


X-Men Group Costume

The X-Men series has given us one of the best ensembles in comic book history. How many mutants have come and gone through the doors of Charles Xavier's School for the Gifted? PLENTY to choose from to make an awesome group costume this Halloween Wolverine, Storm, Mystique, they're all there, but there are more to choose from. And our favorite X-Men, the red frog on a motorcycle!


YOLO Group Costume

OMG, #YOLO! So, IMO (you know, FOMO), let’s LOL this Halloween… If that as an alien language to you, this YOLO group Halloween costume probably isn’t for you. If on the other hand your smart phone is basically another appendage and your best conversations happen on Twitter, any acronym costume like this would make a pretty topical and timely pick for

Five Nights at Freddy's

Five Nights at Freddy's Group Costume

This scary game has taken the indie video game world by storm. Five Nights at Freddy's is ALL about the jump scares, which you can incorporate into your Halloween group costume this by hiding behind corners and then scaring the crap out of our friends. In the game, you act as an overnight security guard at a pizza joint and have to defend yourself when the animatronic characters start coming to life. This group did a great job of getting that creepy-cartoony vibe just perfect!

Our Favorite DIY Halloween Costume Ideas [How to Halloween]

Our Favorite DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

There's nothing more impressive than a good DIY Halloween costume. With so many cookie-cutter costumes out there, taking the time to make or even assemble something different can make people say "WOW! Why didn't I think of that?" You may still need to buy accessories like shoes, belts and gloves, but it's great to see people wearing a Halloween costume that's exactly what they wanted. Maybe you're a fan of the unidentified alien that was cut from the Mos Eisley cantina scene. Perhaps you wanted to bring your favorite board game character to life, like Ms. Scarlet from Clue. You can even put a unique spin on a classic Halloween costume too! The sky's the limit when you harness the power of your imagination!

While there are quite a few Harley Quinn costumes on the market, her character has a plethora of other looks. That being said, many cosplayers have taken the key elements of what makes Harley Quinn Harley Quinn, and used them to make original costumes. They use items such as her red and black color scheme, the diamond patterns often featured on her outfits and her two-tone pigtail hair. And, dare we say, the results are amazing!


2. DIY Tigger Costume

We look forward to seeing Josh Sundquist's new costume every year! After he lost a leg to bone cancer as a child, Josh had to find fun and unique Halloween costume ideas that suit him. Now a Paralympic athlete and Halloween costume guru, he makes some of the most clever one-legged costumes. This Tigger costume from Winnie the Pooh is simply brilliant, from his friendly mascot head to his iconic striped tail!

This easy costume DIY is a little time-consuming, but oh so cute! It's also great for every member of the family, from babies and toddlers to kids, teens and adults. By pulling a needle and thread through a green outfit and tying it around some white yarn "spines", you can make a cactus out of jumpsuits, sweaters and dresses. Use felt for some fake flowers and voila! (Or attach some fake flowers if you feel like you're running out of time. We won't tell!) You'll only have to binge through a few episodes on Netflix, but crafts you can do on the couch are some of our favorites.


4. DIY Lisa Frank Costumes

You gotta have it. That's right, we're talking about these Lisa Frank Halloween costumes for 90s and 80s kids. A fun spin on otherwise normal animal costumes, these rainbow outfits bring a pop of color. Depending on which animal you choose, you'll need either a white outfit or something bright and bold—and a whole lot of fabric paint and imagination! Many Lisa Frank-styled animals with patterned fur such as leopards, zebras and dalmatians had rainbow spots and stripes that you'll have to paint on your outfit. Otherwise, look for images of Lisa Frank artwork and find your favorite animal for your 90s costume inspiration!


5. DIY Diablo III Costume

The craftsmanship on cosplay costumes is at times utterly insane, like this demon hunter cosplay from Diablo III. If you're at this level of costume-making, our hats are off to you. The armor bits are often fashioned out of materials like Wonderflex, EVA foam and Worbla if you're willing to give it a shot! Even if you're not looking to dress like this particular character, you could DIY a knight costume or another video game character with the right materials.


6. DIY Banksy Costume

As they say, art imitates life, so why can't life imitate art? Costumes like the Mona Lisa and The Girl With the Pearl Earring are a dime a dozen these days, so show off your creativity and talent by making a Halloween costume based on another work of art! This Banksy costume is a lot of fun, and a pretty easy DIY to pull off. With some black clothes, white fabric paint and black and white Halloween makeup, you can make a statement with this Banksy Flower Bomber costume in no time at all!

9. DIY Violet Beauregarde Makeup

Sometimes, even the simplest costumes are the best. Admittedly this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Violet Beauregarde costume is mostly makeup and a blue tracksuit, but it's brilliant! (Seriously, why didn't we think of this?) In the movie, Violet turns wellviolet as she tries an experimental new gum from Wonka. He tried to get her to stop chewing but, well, you can say that this spoiled child got her just desserts.


DIY Kane Costume

Many of us know Adam Savage from the TV series MythBusters, but did you know that he also rocks the Comic-Con scene? Adam's costume builds are incredibly intricate and just plain awesome, like this Kane spacesuit from Alien. He has gone "in-con-nito" to conventions all across the US, but spotting him in an amazing costume build like this might be tricky!


DIY Burrito Costume

Food costumes are plentiful, but they're even cuter when you can tailor them to your style! A silver skirt paired with a tan tank top is a great start to a chic homemade burrito costume. (Not to mention the shiny silver shoes!) Adding a felt collar with some felt and pop pom lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and meat will ensure that your burrito outfit is unmistakable. And now we have a hankering for Chipotle.

Can we say that some of the most impressive costume builds we have ever seen have been for wheelchair Halloween costumes? Because they are, if this How to Train Your Dragon costume isn't enough proof for you. We're not entirely sure what materials were used for this build, but if you have the time and the talent, you can make just about anything into a wheelchair costume!

Most of us never thought we could get upstaged by a pooch, yet here we are! Turning leashes into a harness was a stroke of genius, and the headless horseman on top is simply amazing! Even the pumpkin head is perfect. A ride-on costume like this is perfect for a large dog, but if you can make a mini horseman and find a tiny enough fake pumpkin, go for it!


DIY Baby Popcorn and Theater Attendant Costumes

You don't always need an expensive costume to wow the crowd—cute and clever Halloween costume ideas are great, too! In order to pull off this theater attendant and popcorn baby costume, all you're going to need is a white dress shirt, a red tie, black pants and shoes and some red and white felt. (And it looks like popcorn, too!) Use the red and white felt to make a popcorn bucket-styled cover to put over your baby carrier. Then don your outfit, dress your baby in white and give them a white hat with some popcorn attached to it. Super-cute and super-easy!

Every year she has some of the most intricate and outlandish costumes that, quite honestly, you'd never even realize it was Heidi Klum wearing it.
