Halloween is fast approaching, but have you decided what you and your other half will be wearing to that big party? Fear not, Jelly Deals has you covered with some last-minute couples Halloween costume ideas that are easy to throw together. No matter what your budget, the list below covers from the cheap but effective closet cosplays through to the more intricate and complex Halloween costumes for couples.
With the popularity of Stranger Things and the horror side of the show, it’s perfect for any spooky Halloween party. It also offers multiple options for couples Halloween costumes both young and old! There’s the added bonus of the retro ‘80s feel with the latest season, which is great for any costume party. The best thing about dressing up as your favourite Stranger Things couple for Halloween is that the outfits can mostly be sourced from your own wardrobe or your local high street shops.
Joyce and Hopper
First up, there is Joyce and Hopper. With the way the story went in season three of Stranger Things, Joyce and Hopper will be one of the number one choices for couples this Halloween. Joyce’s outfit consists of a simple red t-shirt, jeans and shirt around her waist. Her clothing choices can most likely be found in your own wardrobe or local high street shop, but if you are struggling to find the right t-shirt it can be found on eBay. Hopper’s clothing can also be found in your everyday wardrobe except his shirt, which can be found for cheap from eBay.
Steve and Robin
Although not a couple in the show, the relationship between Steve ‘The Hair’ Harrington and Robin Buckley provided a lot of entertainment throughout series three. Already a popular choice at recent conventions, their outfits aren’t such an easy DIY job but can be bought from various websites. The Scoops Ahoy uniforms can be found through Amazon and eBay, where quick delivery is available:
- Steve Scoops Ahoy Costume from £19 at eBay or Amazon
- Robin Scoops Ahoy Costumes from £18 at eBay or Amazon
Eleven and Mike
The gang of youngsters not only provides a good group Halloween costume but as the teenagers start to hook up over the season there are a few easy casual options to dress up in. The trending and easily identifiable choice is Eleven and Mike. Mike has various outfits throughout season three, but they are mostly plain shirts and polo necks that you will be able to pick out of your wardrobe or buy cheaply on the high street. Eleven’s attire also changes throughout the season, but the most iconic costume is Eleven’s mall costume or the famous yellow and black blouse. Both choices provide a lot of that ‘80s colour and fun.
- Eleven Stranger Things playsuit for £27 from Amazon
- Eleven Stranger Things playsuit for £16 from eBay
- Eleven Stranger Things Blouse from £20
With Dark Phoenix, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain Marvel and Avengers Endgame all seeing release this year, pairing up as your favourite superpowered couple will be a top choice this Halloween. Characters such as Captain Marvel, Iron-Man and Captain America have more complex costumes that take a lot of time and investment, but there are definitely some cheaper and easier to source couples Halloween costume options out there.
Spider-Man and MJ
First up there is Spider-Man and MJ. Spider-Man has the option of both his casual costumes to tie in with MJ, or his super-suit. MJ’s ensemble requires a simple pairing of black jeans with a white t-shirt, along with a black blouse. Peter’s casual costume contains a blue and white checkered shirt, brown trousers and white t-shirt. His Spidey Suit can be found here:
Jean Grey and Cyclops
Although Dark Phoenix had mixed reviews, Jean Grey and Cyclops have been a main couple in the Marvel universe for a long time. The outfits for both Jean and Scott are the same throughout the majority of the film, and they can be sourced here:
Jessica Jones and Luke Cage
With Jessica Jones season three arriving on Netflix this year, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are also cheap options. A side bonus for this power couple is everything can be sourced from your wardrobe! Jessica Jones simply requires blue ripped jeans, a leather jacket and vest t-shirt. Luke requires a pair of regular jeans and a yellow t-shirt. For that extra added effect, put small tears and holes in Luke’s shirt to look like bullet holes.
Various other Marvel outfits can be found on Amazon that would also work as a group Halloween costume, but the quality of each varies, so it is best to check the reviews before buying.
Marvel has many romantic pairings, but DC also has many that can rival the superpower couple status for a perfect couples Halloween costume.
Joker and Harley Quinn
Both the Joker and Harley Quinn are favourite choices to dress as individually with Joker and Birds of Prey: and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn films out this year. The characters can also combine to provide a multitude of options as a couples Halloween costume. The most popular Harley Quinn outfit is her Suicide Squad attire, which can be found in most fancy-dress shops but can also be found on Amazon. A good quality Suicide Squad Joker can also be found on Amazon. Both outfits require extra accessories such as wigs, but a cheap alternative is to temporarily spray your hair with coloured hairspray.
Batman and Catwoman
Batman and Catwoman have had some key storylines together lately in the comics and they were even engaged at one point, so they are definitely a top Halloween costume choice for couple this year. The added bonus is who doesn’t want to pretend to be Batman for the day? Cheap Batman and Catwoman costumes can be sourced from most of your local fancy dress shops, but here are some links where you can also buy the outfits online:
Aquaman and Mera
Aquaman and Mera have both casual and more complex outfits, but Aquaman’s casual outfit requires a lot of confidence and skill with makeup. Aquaman and Mera is the perfect combination for a man with long hair and a redheaded female. Their classic armoured costumes can be found here:
Superman and Lois Lane
For those that didn’t want to be Batman, they grew up wanting to be Superman. Superman and Lois Lane will always be a classic pairing, but with no recent Superman film, it is not a couples Halloween costume that will be trending this year. Lois Lane’s costume can be sourced from your own wardrobe as there is nothing special to her outfit, but Clark Kent’s super suit can be found here:
The live-action Disney films are in high favour this year, with Dumbo, Aladdin and Lion King all having been released in 2019. The Pixar film Toy Story 4 also came out in 2019 and gave us a cute couple with Woody and Bo Peep. Below are links to costumes from Aladdin and Toy Story 4, as well as an idea for how to dress up as characters from the Lion King.
Jasmine and Aladdin
Jasmine and Aladdin have long been popular choices to dress as individually for any costume party, but with the live-action movie being released this year they will be a Halloween costume choice in demand for couples.
Woody and Bo Peep
Toy Story 4 sees the relationship between Bo Peep and Woody develop even further and had audiences melting at the cuteness of it all. If you’d like to wear the outfits of the well-loved toy couple, here is where you can buy them together:
Simba and Nala
Dressing as everyone’s favourite animal couple is a slightly different idea that works well as a couples costume for Halloween. All it would require is dressing up as a lion and lioness and has the added bonus of being super comfortable.
Other Popular Choices
Morticia and Gomez
A Halloween couple that is popular every year – but is also currently trending with the new film being released soon – is Morticia and Gomez from The Addams Family. Due to the fact that Morticia and Gomez wear simple gothic attire, their outfits are easy to achieve. The choice is even fashionable amongst celebrities, with Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas doing a fabulous version of the couple at Halloween last year.
Jack and Sally
Sticking with the spooky theme, Jack and Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas is always a favoured Halloween costume for couples. The costumes and makeup are more elaborate than the previous options on the list, but the outfits can be acquired cheaply from many online stores and even your local fancy dress shop. Amazon has a few different choices as well as makeup options.
- A Nightmare Before Christmas – Jack Costume from £33
- A Nightmare Before Christmas – Sally Costume from £37
Men In Black
An easy but effective option for a Halloween costume this year is the Men in Black team. As well as the older team of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, the new film Men in Black: International features the new characters Agent H and Agent M. To dress as the agents defending the universe from intergalactic threats, you simply need a smart black suit, white shirt and black tie – as well as the obligatory pair of shades.
There should be something in there for your perfect couples Halloween costume.
