If you and your partner want to wear a couples costume this Halloween, why not go all out and channel a celebrity power couple? You could opt for American's first couple, Barack and Michelle Obama, or their good friends and music industry powerhouses Beyoncé and Jay-Z. You could also pretend to be the lucky Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady for a day — just break out your best Victoria's Secret lingerie and angel wings and dress your guy in Patriots gear. Or hop in the Halloween time machine and dress as historical power couple John and Jackie Kennedy, or Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. There are so many options, and we've brainstormed 12 power-couple costumes to choose from! See them all now.
If you're like me, trying to plan a Halloween costume stresses you out. So you might think coming up with a couple-themed outfit would be double the work — but actually I think it's easier.
First, you only need one idea for two people. So you can outsource the brainstorming to your partner. And there are more clever options. While you might not just dress up as an egg solo, dressing up as bacon and eggs totally makes sense. Unfortunately, that deliciously cute costume wasn't enough to save Kelly Osbourne and ex Luke Worrall's relationship. After he allegedly cheated on her (bacon was everywhere last year), I doubt they'll spend Halloween together this year.
Ignoring a costume's capacity to keep a couple together, I'm curious: what duo costumes have you found especially clever or cute?
I've given you Halloween costume ideas if you're going the sexy route as well as the couples route, but what do you think of the whole dressing up as a couple concept? I've actually never done it before, but if you get creative, I think it could be really fun! Cliché costumes on the other hand, tend to be cheesy and just kind of annoying. Are you with me on this one? Where do you stand on dressing up on Halloween with your significant other in a couples costume?
