The first day of fall isn't until September 23, but with Labor Day weekend behind us and pumpkin spice lattes already available for sale, for many that means it's officially Halloween szn. Many years I've wanted to do an elaborate or fun Halloween costume with my S.O., friends, or by myself and simply didn't have the time, forcing me to cop out and either repeat a costume from previous years or to do a generic witch, nerd, princess, etc.
Now that I've put costume-planning on the radar, there are no excuses for not going all-out this year! Here are some couple's costume ideas that you can start gathering the materials (clothing, accessories, makeup, wigs) for now!
1. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen
Maybe the nephew/aunt plot line skews your view of them as a "couple's" costume, but they are an iconic duo nonetheless. Perhaps just pretend the last season never happened?
2. Jack and Sally
THE iconic Halloween couple.
3. Anna and Elsa/Hans
Start practicing your braiding skills now.
4. The Joker and Harley Quinn
You need to get your hands on A LOT of white face paint ASAP.
5. Mr. and Mrs. Incredible
Name a more powerful couple. I'll wait.
6. Cosmo and Wanda
You might already have the clothes for this costume, the only other things you'll need are crafting skills and some temporary hair dye.
7. Vanellope von Schweetz and Wreck-It Ralph
You'll probably be able to thrift and alter the clothes you need for this one!
8. Lilo and Stitch
One of you can order a Stitch onesie and be extra cozy!
9. Belle and Beast
It's going to take some online searching and possibly a lot of $$$ to find the right look for this one, so start looking and saving now. If you can pull it off, you'll definitely stand out from the crowd!
10. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy
11. Willy Wonka and an Oompa Loompa
Please dress as the Gene Wilder version, not the Johnny Depp one.
12. Shrek and Fiona
If you want a royal couple that's not from Disney, Shrek and Fiona are always a top-tier choice.
13. Joyce Byers and Jim Hopper
Definitely go for Hopper's casual Hawaiian shirt look from the most recent season and thrift all the clothes you'll need for this that you don't already have!
This year is your year to plan a fun, elaborate costume. Go for it!
