What do you do when you are dating on Halloween? The unexpected couples costume, of course. From the classic Prince and Princess costume ideas to new ideas, this post will provide you with different ideas for your amazing couples costume. This year why not dress up as your idol couple and play out the romantic fantasy every couple has? You really cannot go wrong with couples costumes.

1.Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast is a classic couple love story with the happily everCouples Halloween Costume after ending. Beast, cursed as a Prince to live as a hideous beast until someone comes along and loves him for who he is not what he looks like. Bella, is just a common villager, a little weird in her time with her head always in books. But, she sees the good in everything and everyone around her. Together, they make a real power couple.

What you will need:


  • Black pants
  • Old shirt, torn a bit
  • Beast mask


  • White long sleeve
  • Blue tank top
  • Blue skirt
  • White apron
  • Flat shoes (thank goodness no heals for the night!)

2.Entomologist and Butterfly

Entomologists love insects and studying everything about them. It might seem a little nerdy, but if that special person in your life loves butterflies this couples costume will go over perfectly with them.

What you will need:


  • Tan shirt
  • White pants
  • Tan hat
  • Insect net
  • Butterfly embellishments


  • Butterfly wings
  • Dress (for quick put together!)
  • Butterfly Antenna’s.
  • Flat shoes so your feet will not be killing you by the end of the night.


3.Gumball Machine & Quarter Slot

Clever yet, original. Gumball machine with the quarter slot. This is definitely a new couples costume choice and will keep everyone talking all night. Bonus for this outfit choice it can be thrown together last minute.

What you need:


  • Cheap tank top
  • Red skirt
  • Colored cotton balls
  • Fabric glue
  • Red shocks
  • Black shoes
  • Ribbon for your hair

You can glue the cotton balls on the front of the shirt using fabric glue from your local craft or fabric store. Hobby Lobby also carries it as does Amazon.


  • Plain shirt
  • Blue jeans
  • Paper plate
  • String

Color the paper plate any color you want although, silver is the typical coin slot color. Add the 25 cents to the plate. String it around your neck with the string, just don’t make it too tight.


If you are up for a little adventure and breaking the law together with the robber’s costume would be a great idea. The best part of this costume it can also be thrown together last minute just in case it slipped your mind.

What you will need:

  • Black and White striped shirts
  • Pants color black
  • Shoes color black
  • Moneybags
  • Masks to hide your true identity.

5.Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty

A clever outfit, not inky will Lady Liberty look smashing, but you get a chance to show off your countries spirit. Why not say it loud and proud so everyone can hear you?

What you will need:


  • Uncle Sam hat from 4th of July
  • Red white and blue bow tie.
  • Black jacket
  • White shirt
  • Blue jeans


  • Teal/blue colored dress.
  • Lady Liberty Crown
  • Lady Liberty Torch

There were so many couples costumes to choose from on Pinterest. But, I would like to think I found some of the easier costumes to pull off. Especially if you are like me and leave party planning to the last minute. I am curious though if you could go as any couple who would you want to go as?
