You know what they say: the couple that dresses up for Halloween together stays together. Ok, maybe I just made that up. In any event, like many things, Halloween is better when you’re coupled up and coordinating costumes. The thing is, it can be difficult to think up a costume for yourself let alone one that pairs perfectly with another person. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I turned to some serious costume experts for Halloween inspiration and found four choices. Now, the most difficult thing you have to do is choose one (unless, of course, you’re turning Halloween into a multi-day affair, which come to think of it sounds like a great idea).
Don’t lie: you had date night on your couch when Sharknado 3 premiered in August. Celebrate your favorite made-for-tv guilty pleasure (sorry, Secrets and Wives) with this idea from halloweencostumes.com.
50 Shades of Grey
You read the book, you saw the movie, now dress up like Ana and Christian from 50 Shades of Grey for an R-Rated Halloween. See if you can get your usual double-date couple to join you as Kate and Elliott. Keep it classy by going with a masquerade look rather than the red-room route with masks from VIVO masks. Bonus points if you can bribe your favorite fifth wheel to go as José, the distant second to Christian for Ana’s heart.
Perfect for the couple that has no shame in admitting Tom Cruise is still their homeboy. He did make “Maverick” cool long before Sarah Palin even became a thing, after all. Look ready to board the USS Enterprise in these halloweencostumes.com his and her looks that will command attention.
