25 Amazing Halloween Costumes for Couples

Krystal Baugher gets creative (and maybe helps you win a costume contest this year) with 25 amazing Halloween costumes for couples. Break out the wigs!

One of the reasons Halloween is the best holiday of the year (besides the haunted houses and ridiculous amount of candy) is that it gives people the opportunity to express an inner character that doesn’t get to come out and play that often. I tend to lean more towards bad-ass people like Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction or the belligerent Courtney Love. They’re fun, saucy and have personality traits I admire and want to inhabit more often in my everyday life.

But what happens when you’re dating someone and need to team up? Do you go funny, clever or scary? Is the intent to entertain each other, show-off to friends or just put something together fast because there’s a party in three hours? Whatever style you’re searching for, there’s something creative for your dynamic duo!
