HALLOWEEN COSTUME IDEAS FOR COUPLES
Updated: Sep 19
It's starting to feel like fall! The temperature is dropping and our sweater weather candle is lit (any other bath and body candle snobs out there?) And for us Jasmine ladies, as soon as it feels like fall, we start thinking Halloween! We throw a huge Halloween party every year and costumes are a must! If you've been following along with us, it's pretty evident we like to go all-out for our parties and we put the same effort into our Halloween events and costumes!
We've put together a list of our favorite couples costume ideas that we have used in the past, along with links to all the pieces from each costume! One of the worst parts of finding a costume you love is the relentless search to find everything you need, so we made it easy for you! Click, buy, have fun - check them out below!!
VELMA & SHAGGY
Who didn't love Scooby Doo as a kid? Velma and Shaggy were so fun to replicate and easily recognizable (it's no fun wearing a costume when you have to explain who you are)!
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD & THE WOLF
This classic childhood fairytale makes for fun couple's costume! Little Red Riding Hood with her basket of goodies and the Big Bad wolf create a memorable costume that is sure to be unique!
RED RIDING HOOD
Dress - any black dress you own
Shoes - any shoes you own
Basket Fillers - Bottle of Wine, of course :)
CLARK & ELLEN GRISWOLD
Does any one else love 'National lampoon's Christmas Vacation'? It's a classic and an easy couples costume to pull off! For those who don't desire getting to crazy with their costumes this is a great one for you!
COP & ROBBER
This old school couples costume is a must try! And just because it's old school doesn't mean it isn't a winner!
AL & PEGGY BUNDY
Married with Children is a classic TV sitcom from the late 80's and 90's. Al may be a little hard to recognize by himself but Peg with her big bright red hair and leopard print outfit makes this an ultimate couples costume! We're sure you will be the only Al and Peg at your Halloween Party.
SUPERMAN & LOIS LANE
Who doesn't love being a super hero! "It's a bird... it's a plane... it's superman!" Bring out your inner kid with this old school super here Halloween costume!
AMERICAN PIE BAND CAMP
This teen comedy became an instant hit and gave some of the best movie quotes for that generation! If the t-shirts don't seal the deal for this costume, that pie sure will 😂
BOYS BAND CAMP UNIFORM
GIRLS BAND CAMP UNIFORM
FORREST GUMP & JENNY
"Run Forrest, Run!" Here's another classic movie that gives us a great opportunity for a couple costume!
DUMB & DUMBER
Just because you're a couple dressing up for Halloween doesn't mean you have to choose a couple to dress up as, take this spin of Harry and Lloyd for example. This couple won costume of the year for this!
MARTY MCFLY & DOC BROWN (Back to the Future)
Another iconic movie duo here! This costume is for the couple that loves to go all out and the effort and creativity is definitely worth it for this memorable Halloween costume!
LORD HELMET & PRINCESS VESPA (Space Balls)
While a good portion of this classic costume was handmade by one of our talented Jasmine men, we've found the items needed for you to pull off this duo and seriously impress your friends!!
Off Shoulder Dress (Original is no longer available here is one Similar)
Hot Air Large Hair Dryer - PVC Pipe & Plastic Bowl (handmade)
LOLA & BUGS BUNNY (Space Jam)
The ultimate basketball duo! Space Jam brings back all of our childhood memories and will do the same for all of the party guests.
Blue Water Bottle (We taped the yellow paper on with 'Michael's Secret Stuff'
70'S HIPPIE COUPLE
Instead of creating certain characters this costume idea is based off of a decade! And when we think of a fun decade the 70's comes to mind! Tie dye, peace signs and bell bottoms are all you need to pull this iconic couples costume together!
FEMALE HIPPIE OUTFIT
Orange Jumpsuit (original was a vintage hand me down, here's one similar)
MALE HIPPIE OUTFIT
JASON & BRITTANY ALDEAN
We're not sure if this couple is iconic, but this couples costume stemmed from being huge fans of this country couple. And it didn't hurt that this Jasmine husband has been told a time or two that he looks similar to country music start Jason Aldean. It's a unique idea for sure, which makes it a winner in our books!
Jason Aldean T-shirt (similar, original is from a concert)
Distressed Jeans (similar, original are no longer available)
Leopard Booties (similar, originals are no longer available)
SAFARI MAN & LION
This was such an easy costume to pull off! You probably already own quite a few of the costume accessories needed, However the thing that really MADE this costume for the lion was the makeup! You can find a ton of makeup tutorials on YouTube that will teach you how to perfectly create this look!
This Jasmine lady is a HUGE fan of fast food...specifically Taco Bell! There are only a few items needed for this costume, which made it affordable and simple! PLUS this gave us an excuse to serve Taco Bell at our Halloween party - Doritos Loco Tacos for everyone!!
Don't forget your Taco Bell Party Pack!
Yellow Belle Dress - includes gloves and headband
SHARK & BITE VICTIM
Watch out for this vicious costume! Need an option that is comfy white still fun? Look no further - the Shark outfit was made out of fleece and kept this Jasmine lady warm and cozy during the party!
Men's Rash Shirt We cut holes in the shirt to create the bite shape and then added some fake blood
DEER & HUNTER
This may be the costume we have seen pop up the most on Pinterest, however it was another easy one to create...Extra easy if your husband is a hunter in real life :) Just like the Lion costume above, you can really take the deer to another level with some makeup - check YouTube for some tutorials!
We have quite a few costumes to give you inspiration from our past Halloween parties! What are your favorites? We have something for everyone. Want something simple and inexpensive where you can utilize a lot of pieces you already own and just add makeup or something little. OR are you a Halloween junky (ALL of us Jasmine ladies fall into this category) and choose to go all out with make up and props? If you go with any of these ideas make sure to tag us in your photos!
