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.
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.

Just don’t let him turn into a bossy pants with that wand. Well, unless you like that sort of thing.
