One week left to scramble for a costume! Want to pair with your significant other? Here’s 13 DIY couple costumes to consider!
Please disregard the sex of the couples in these photos. I encourage you to put your own twist to the story if you identify as LGBTQA+!
Batman & Robin – these two costumes could be made DIY easily! For Batman, wear all black, or a Batman t-shirt, and make a cape and mask with felt and an old t-shirt! Since I can’t say I’ve ever seen a Robin t-shirt, you’ll most likely have to make his logo out of felt but just glue it onto a red t-shirt!
Chuck Bass & Blair Waldorf – Chuck and Blair’s relationship is so dysfunctional but perfect. They are #relationshipgoals. Halloween is the perfect time to fulfill fantasizes about living Blair Waldorf’s life, but don’t forget her kryptonite Chuck Bass!
Christian Grey & Anastasia Steele – we fell in love with them in Fifty Shades of Grey and with the Fifty Shades Darker film releasing this coming February, this is the perfect couple to mimic this fall!
Danny Zuko & Sandy Olsson – Grease is always a classic. So no matter how many times this is repeated, I will always love this costume idea! So simple too, all black and a little leather!
Jack & Coke – So easy and so clever!
Woody & Jessie – throwback from the late 90’s, they captured our hearts in Toy Story 2! This costume can easily be recreated with pieces in your own closets, a thrift store, or a dollar store. 10 points if you add the pull tab in the back!
Jim Halpert & Pam Beesly from The Office – this is too cute for words, but you do have to know at least a little bit about the show before you can try out this costume!
Johnny Cash & June Carter – this classic is one of my all time favorites! Hard to do though if both of you have light-colored hair, but again so easy to dress as this couple! Guitar is definitely a plus, even if it’s made out of cardboard.
Paulie Bleeker & Juno MacGuff from Juno – this is for couples who are pregnant of course. So adorable & easy to do with items from your own closets or thrifty shoppers!
NHL Player & Stanley Cup – are you both die-hard hockey fans? Then this is definitely the costume for you! Especially since one of you must have a jersey and the other just has to dress in something silver and wear a silver bowl on their head. Like how much easier could it get?! You’ll definitely be number one all night with this one!
Squints & Wendy Peffercorn from Sandlot – another classic that can be accomplished by things hanging in amongst your own clothing!
Sheldon Cooper & Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory – 10 points if you actually are some sort of scientist! Might want to raid your grandmother’s closet for Amy’s get-up!
The Sailor & Nurse from the iconic photo of a sailor kissing a nurse celebrating Japan’s surrender in World War II – always a classic and so adorable! But you will definitely be posing like this quite a bit throughout the night!
