10 costume ideas for couples . diy halloween

My current favorite: tooth fairy and tooth by julie ann art

Did you catch last week's post on lady costumes? Well, here's the next post in the series. If you want to team up with somebody, here's your costume. Somewhere in this post, anyway. These can all be made, mostly with things you probably already have in your closet or a box or a corner of the attic/garage/basement. Team up with your significant somebody or your bestie - just make sure it's somebody you won't get sick of following around for the entire night!

Also consider: Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Marge and Homer Simpson, Batman and Robin, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Shrek and Fiona, Dumb and Dumber, Sally and Jack Skellington. or the princess and the frog!

  10. my favorite couples costume ever (and boy, am I dating myself) was seeing my babysitter and her boyfriend go as Mr Whipple and a roll of toilet paper. Totally loving the tooth fairy one...

    Sadly, here in the UK Halloween is ONLY spooky, creepy costumes, but they also do love their "fancy dress" parties (i.e., costume) so I'm bookmarking this for the next one!
