11 Couple Costumes That Won't Make Your Friends Hate You

Don't be that annoying couple.

11 Couple Costumes That Won't Make Your Friends Hate You

Couple costumes can be great but can also be downright disastrous. I’ve actually SEEN the infamous plug and socket couple costume (who knew people would spend money on that?). Here are some costumes that you and your boy toy can dress up as while saving your friends from gagging at your self-proclaimed "adorableness" all night.

1. Sharkboy & Lavagirl (my all time favorite)

I’ve actually had this idea for so long and have always wanted to do it, too bad I don’t have a boyfriend :/ Get your man to dress up as a shark, young Taylor Lautner style, while you deck yourself out in a pink bodysuit of lava. Don’t forget a pink wig or hair chalk to complete the look of your childhood.

2. Dumb & Dumber

A classic movie and classic costume. Pick which color looks on you best (I personally look heinous in orange) and wear that color suit with your significant other!

3. Pinata & blindfolded party person with a bat

Another interchangeable costume, have one of you dress as a pinata and another dress as a deranged party goer chasing the other around with a bat all night. Bonus points if you bring a bag of candy and throw it everywhere while your partner play hits you with the stick.

4. Princess & Prince Charming

While this is almost gag worthy, it can actually be pretty cute. Dress up as your favorite Disney princess and prince or Kate Middleton and William - you decide.

5. Tree & Koala

I heart koalas and I heart this cute costume. Have your boyfriend dress as a tree while you and your koala self hold onto him all night long. Feeling strong? You be the tree and have your boyfriend be the koala clinging onto you.

6. Lion & Ring Leader

Be fierce this Halloween as a lion and a ring leader! If you end up being the ring leader, break out a whip so you can hit your boyfriend all night (jk) (not really).

7. Ron Burgundy & Veronica Corningstone

What better way to pay tribute to a great movie? Stay classy, San Diego.

8. Wendy Peffercorn & Squints

Dress up as the lifeguard young Squints had the guts to get to kiss. Have your boyfriend dress up in a baseball tee, glasses and a baseball glove and you’re set to go.

9. Cosmo & Wanda from The Fairly Odd Parents

Your favorite childhood TV show turned into favorite costume. Get colored wigs or temporary hair dye to make your hair pink and green. Dress just like the cartoon characters for a magical finish (lol puns).

10. Mr. & Mrs. Incredible

This is definitely not a costume that a lot of people do, but it’s awesome. Especially since Pixar has announced that they’re in the process of finishing up an Incredibles sequel (eek!!!).

11. Harry Potter & The Golden Snitch

As a Harry Potter fanatic, I applaud this costume. Have your boyfriend dress up in Harry’s quidditch gear, broom and all, and have him chase you around while you wear all gold. Buy some golden wings or make your own to complete the look.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
