Top 5 Couples Costumes for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and if you're like you always end up at the costume store 2 days before the big party fighting for a parking spot and searching through the crappy costume leftovers.  SO here is your big chance to get ahead of the game.  Start getting a game plan for your costume now!  I love COUPLE's costumes!  This year the two biggest trends include Barak and Michelle Obama and Sarah Palin and John McCain.  I didn't include those because who wants to show up at a party and have the same costume on as another couple.  These are the Top 5 couples costumes I found.  I hope they inspire you to dress up as something great.  I hope to dress up as something awesome (to be determined) and Adam will likely dress up as well... Adam.  (he hates dressing up).  I better get to convincing him!

Popeye and Olive Oyle(
How cute is this costume that I found at the link above.  Simple and fun!  I've also seen "Sexy Olive Oyle" if you're into sexifiying your costume.  I think you could do this costume yourself but probably easier just to purchase the set.

Fred and Wilma Flinstone

I love these costumes that I found on the website above.  I've wanted to be this for a few years now.  It's a classic costume that you could reuse down the road or let a friend borrow next Halloween.  Great one for the collection.  If you're going in a group you could also add Barney and Betty or your kids could be Pebbles and Bam Bam!

Spencer and Heidi (MTV's The Hills)

What better idea than to be "Speidi" this year! (check out the above link) Hillarious and easy to do.  Get a blonde wig and maybe a wedding dress or google some Heidi fashion online and pair it up with a spencer themed out in spiderman and you are set.  Bound to be the talk of th party!  If you're not familiar with this popular MTV reality show these 2 have been all over the tabloids!

The Super Mario Brothers (Mario and Luigi)

I think this is so funny.  Why get all glammed up when you can be comfortable and hillarious!  This costume is super easy to put toether yourselves.  Hit up Goodwill for overalls, teeshirts and hats then stop by the halloween store for some mustaches and wigs.  So cool!

Thing 1 and Thing 2 (The Cat and The hat)

This works if you have a brave husband/boyfriend ect.  This is the ultimate couples costume that will have fellow party goers dying with laughter.  Also perfect for an outdoor party.  No problem staying warm in this!

What are the best couples costumes you've seen?  Leave me a comment and share!

    Dress in white pants and white shirt, attach cotton balls all over, carry an umbrella and go as "Partly cloudy with a chance of rain."

    Steve and I are thinking of going as Papa Smurf and Smurfette. Simple to make costumes from stuff we have at home! Only thing we need to buy is blue body paint!

    you need a giant clear garbage bag stuffed with lots of different colored balloons, a multi-colored wig and viola...a gumball machine!
