You’re very busy with work, errands, and family. You just do not have time to come up with a Halloween costume for you and your spouse to attend that yearly Halloween party, right? WRONG! Stop wearing that tired old costume that you have wore for so many years and get inspiration from these costume ideas for couples. These ideas are easy and fun to make; and they only take a few minutes to make.
The Crocodile Hunter & Wife
Who doesn’t love the crocodile hunter? Create this costume for a change of pace.
Each person wears khaki shorts and shirts. Don’t forget to wear hiking boots and tube socks. Take a pillowcase and fill it with rubber snakes. “Terri” could have a rubber snake around her neck and “Steve” could have a stuffed crocodile in tow. For an extra added flair work on your Australian accent.
Gomez and Morticia Adams
This is perhaps the easiest couple costume to get together.
For Morticia: Come up with a long black dress and wig. A good place to start would be the thrift stores that are in your area. If you cannot find a long black dress, dye one of your own. If you cannot find a black wig, temporarily dye your hair. Don’t worry, around Halloween they have colored hairspray. This colored hairspray will come out with the first washing. Once you are dressed in the long dress and black wig, then powder your face with baby powder or even cornstarch. This will give you the beautiful “dead” look that Morticia sports.
For Gomez: You will need to find an old dark suit. Pinstriped will be best but if you can’t find a pinstripe suit then a dark suit will work just fine. These can be found at thrift stores or second hand stores. You will also need a cigar. For extra added flair for Gomez, add a pocket watch chain to the vest of your suit.
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy
Ah, the old raggedy Ann and raggedy Andy. This costume is sure to be a favorite among the guests.
For Raggedy Ann: You will need an inexpensive red wig. If you cannot find one then make one using red yarn. Attach the red yarn to your own hair with bobby pins, making sure the pins are “invisible”. If you don’t want to use red yarn then you can dye your hair red with some KoolAid. Don’t worry, it is temporary. Find a red and white checkered dress, although any dress will do, as long as it has the Raggedy Ann feel to it. You will also need a white ruffle apron. Put on some tube socks that has red and white hortizontial stripes at top and black sneakers. Make two spots on your cheeks with rouge.
For Raggedy Andy: You will need everything that you got for Raggedy Ann with the exception of instead of a dress get a white shirt with red pants and colorful suspenders.
X-Files Scully and Mulder
This costume is for those couples that are into SCI-FI stuff. This costume can usually be found at home.
For Scully: You will need a dark trench coat, dark slacks and a white top. Don’t forget the heels and badge. To get the red hair of Scully, dye your hair with KoolAid.
For Mulder: You will need a black trench coat, slacks, jacket, white dress shirt, and a tie. Mulder needs a badge as well.
These few ideas should inspire you to quit wearing the same ole wolf and little red riding hood costume. If you do not like these costumes then browse through the history books for famous couples. Most everything that you would need can either be made or found at a thrift store or second hand store.
