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!
4. Laundry and Snuggle Bear
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
Get it? Hawaiian pizza? Literally the cutest. And now I’m hungry.
8. Beyonce and Jay Z
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.
9. Alien and one of the girls from Springbreakers
If you saw this movie, you will appreciate and love these costumes as much as I do.
10. A Placenta and Baby
This is both gross, creepy, and completely awesome.
11. Pikachu and Ash from Pokemon
Please make sure to play the Pokemon theme song all night long.
12. A Mermaid and Fisherman
There are tons of mermaid costumes out there. Make yours stand out by adding a fisherman at your side.
13. Grey Worm and Missandrei from Game of Thrones
Let everyone else be Khalessi. This is way better.
14. Lars and The Real Girl from Lars and The Real Girl
I bet you didn't know "mannequin face" was a talent of mine, did you?! Yeah, I didn't know either, but the fact that I could get through this shoot without cracking up in all of the photos was a feat! See the details for this Lars and The Real couples costume on the blog, plus I snuck in some behind the scenes photos, too!

This unique movie couple makes a perfect Halloween costume.
Throwback! This is too cute.
16. Burt Macklin and Janet Snakehole from Parks and Recreation
One of the best things about Parks and Recreation were these two fictional characters. I might have to steal this one.
17. Quailman and Patty from Doug
Are you an 80s baby? Inspired by the new announcement of the SPLAT programming on Nickelodeon (nothing but our favorite nostalgic 90s TV shows), today's Halloween post focuses on couples costumes. Specifically, some favorite nostalgic cartoon characters; and how you can easily DIY these fun costumes at home. Ladies and gentlemen, these are some WINNERS! Happy Halloween (direct link in profile)
Ugh, what a perfect ’90s throwback.
Another perfect ’90s costume!
19, Mrs. Frizzle and The Magic School Bus
And yet another one!
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.
21. Bubblegum and Marceline from Adventure Time
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
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
This gives off Easter vibes, but it’s still a great idea.
26. Lightening Bolt and Thunder
This is such a fun idea! A lightening bolt, and where it struck.
27. A Deer In The Headlights
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.
