50 Last-minute couples’ Halloween costumes that don’t suck

Every year, it’s the same thing: He flops on the couch and says, “What do you want to be for Halloween this year?” and then you say, “I dunno, what do you want to be?” Suddenly, there are tumbleweeds rolling through your living room. Le sigh. Finding the perfect couples’ costume is a tricky business. You want costumes that are as unique and fun as you are — and we’ve got just the ticket.

1. Pacman and Miss Pacman

These first few costume ideas are all DIY, and all by Julie Ann Art. I couldn’t decide on which one was my fave — all are adorable. First up is Pacman and Miss Pacman, a game I totally sucked at as a kid, and these costumes have helped me let go of the pent up resentment.

2. Bolt of lightning

He’s the bolt of lightning, while she’s the poor muffin who was electrocuted.

3. Bank robber and bag of money

He’s the bag of money and she’s the bank robber (the first pic left me in some serious stitches).

4. Fred and Wilma Flintstone

Why not dress as the Stone Age’s hottest couple?

5. SNL Spartan cheerleaders

Better practice your cheers! Guaranteed, your friends will want to see you two in action.

6. Walt and Jesse

OK, so they’ve got this love/hate thing going on Breaking Bad, but that doesn’t mean you have to follow suit — no pun intended.

7. Sesame Street Martians

Yip yip yip yip yip…

8. Google Maps

Seriously, it can be a thing if you want it to be.

9. Piper Chapman and Pornstache

What guy wouldn’t want to be Pornstache for Halloween? Talk about a slam dunk.

10. Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf

You’ve always wanted to sleep with Chuck Bass, and now you get to… you know, minus all the guilt.

11. Nerds

Will he be grape and you the strawberry nerds, or…

12. Juno and Bleeker

He is the cheese to your macaroni, after all.

13. Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone

Sixty percent of the time it’ll work. Every time.

24. Bert and Ernie

C’mon, buy a rubber ducky and live a little.

You can decide who’s going to play what part.

If your beau is being difficult about Halloween, make it easy on him by reenacting the Mac and PC commercial as your couples’ costume. Bam. Done.

28. Harry and Lloyd

Since you’re both ecstatic about the Dumb & Dumber sequel, why not celebrate with a nice bottle of chianti?

29. Austin Powers and Fembot

Unfortunately for Austin, machine gun boobs sold separately.

30. Mary Poppins and Bert

Genius, no?

31. Mario and Luigi

What a great pair, right?

32. Crayons

Maybe later, blue crayon and pink crayon can color outside the lines, wink wink.

33. Angry Birds

These his and hers Angry Birds costumes are totally adorable, so you’re going to have to amp up the angry.

34. Kermit and Miss Piggy

OK, so it ain’t easy being green, but I think Kermit will get over it once he sees your Miss Piggy outfit.

35. Garfield and Otie

All you have to do is talk someone into making you lasagna to go with your Garfield costume, and you’re good to go… for a nap. (And I bet your beau would make an adorable Otie. Just sayin’.)

Tell him to dress as Slash (or enter your fave rock star here) and insinuate you’ll make it worth his while. Win/win.

50. Hugh Hefner and a Playboy Bunny

You knew I had to go there.
