DIY Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples

Do you know what you’re going to be for Halloween?

If you’re still looking for costume ideas, then you may like to do a DIY costume. DIY costumes are great for when you need to make a few changes to the original costume. For instance, if you want to put your own spin on a costume idea or if you don’t have the exact pieces you need. 

Also, you can follow me on Pinterest here. 🙂

Travis and I could pull this costume look off. He already has a black and red plaid shirt and he has a beard to complete the look! We don’t have a dog to be the ox, though. Maybe we could dress the baby up as Blue Babe?

This costume is pretty easy to pull off. More than likely, you have all you need right in your closet!

I chose this costume idea because I LOVE 90210! When I was a teen, I had the biggest crush on Luke Perry. In fact, I still watch the show on Hulu!

I think it’d be pretty easy to find a prom dress and suit from Goodwill or Salvation Army. Not sure if I’d be able to find one just like Brenda’s, but I could certainly get creative in recreating the look!

This costume looks like a pretty easy DIY idea. Just get a Detroit Red Wings hockey jersey or your favorite hockey team’s jersey. Don’t forget the silver dress to go with it. Add the NHL sign to the dress and voilà!

Everyone knows the famous kiss photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a sailor kissing a woman in NYC. It’s also known as “V-J Day”— Victory Over Japan Day. I think this would be a cute costume idea for couples.

What a fun costume idea, right! All you need is a Superman shirt, dress shirt, and dress pants. For Lois Lane, you’ll need a blouse and skirt. And don’t forget the glasses!

This costume would probably be super cheap, too, because you probably already own most of the items.

I love this costume idea! Find an apron and pair it with a dress. For the guy, get a blazer to wear over a pair of overalls. If you don’t have overalls, then a white t-shirt with blue jeans would work just fine.

Travis really loves this Forrest Gump costume. He thinks it’s very creative. He already has a shirt and a pair of khakis similar to this. Only thing is with his beard, he may make a better Forrest who was running across the country.

Remember that scene when Forrest had a beard? LOL! Also, the 10 Best Beards in Movie History is a fun read.

“No one puts Baby in a corner.” This looks like a really fun costume for couples. The guy wears all black and the girl wears a pink dress.

I think Travis and I could pull this one off. Not too sure about his dancing skills, though, because he’s not much of a dancer. 😉

Let’s see, I’ll need a striped collared shirt with a long sleeve white shirt to go underneath. Fold my skinny jeans and pair it with some sneakers.

Travis will need a “Vote for Pedro” tee and tuck his jeans inside of his boots. Oh yeah, and a fanny pack, can’t forget that. Yeah, I think we got this one covered!
