28 Insanely Clever DIY Couples Costumes For Halloween No One Else Will Be

One of the best things about being in a relationship in October is being able to wear a couples costume for Halloween. What? I only speak the truth. Finding your own awesome and unique costume is really fun, but sometimes it’s nice to share the spotlight with your boo. The good news is that there are literally hundreds of options for cool DIY couples costumes. The bad news is that at least half of those options are boring, tired, and cliche. And who wants to do that?

If you and your S.O. want a costume that will blow everyone’s minds, but you’re feeling stumped, look no further. These 28 insanely clever couples costumes will do the trick. These ideas are fun, culturally relevant, easy to put together, and obviously super clever. Why buy an expensive and cheap-looking costume when you could DIY one no one else will be wearing? Here are 28 insanely clever DIY couples costumes no one else will be wearing this year:


1. A Cat and Kitty Litter

Cat people: this is your costume. This is your time to shine. This is gross and also amazing. It makes me indescribably happy.


2. Babe The Blue Ox and Paul Bunyan

This is surprisingly easy to put together and super unique. Not to mention adorable!


3. Professor Utonium and Bubbles from Powerpuff Girls

Powerpuff Girls are awesome, but we’ve all seen the trio costume. This one, albeit a little creepy with the romantic spin, is different and so cute. And easy!

Uh, is this not adorable? Do a little crafting for the laundry basket and box, and you’ve got something no one else will be wearing.


5. Murderous Clowns from Saw

The movie Saw literally traumatized me, so looking at these costumes is kind of hard, but also they’re pretty awesome. This is creepy, which is obviously perfect for Halloween.


6. Tyler Durden and Marla from Fight Club 

Fight Club fans, this one is for you. These costumes are super badass, so you better have the attitude to go with them.


7. Hawaiian Pizza

Is the idea of being Beyonce and Jay Z unique? I mean, no, not really. But you can’t go wrong with this. Also, these outfit choices are on point.

If you saw this movie, you will appreciate and love these costumes as much as I do.

Ugh, what a perfect ’90s throwback.


18. Tamagotchi

Another perfect ’90s costume!

19, Mrs. Frizzle and The Magic School Bus

20. Dr. Sheldon and Amy Cooper from The Big Bang Theory 

Show off your nerdy side by dressing up as this couple instead of another popular option.

I’m kind of obsessed with this. It’s so adorable!


22. TJ and Spinelli from Recess 

Disney princess and prince couples costumes are so overrated. Dress up as TJ and Spinelli from Recess instead.


23. Soap and Loofah
You guys will be the cleanest couple at the party. I don’t know if that’s a compliment, so ignore that, but this is cute!


24. A Cat Stuck In A Tree and a Fire Chief

Just a Fire Chief rescuing a cat from a tree. Halloweekend Night Two. #couplescostumes

Cat costumes are a total cliche, but this pair does it right: the dude is the cat, and the girl is the fire chief. Cutest. Idea. Ever.


25. A Bunny and Carrot 

Me and my carrot #bunny #carrot #halloween #couplescostume #yum

I see a lot of couples costumes that are the deer and the hunter, but I like this one better. It’s more unique!


28. Zombie James Dean and Marilyn Monroe

James Dean and Marilyn Monroe are two popular characters to dress up as. Zombiefy them for something more interesting.
