Still not sure what to be? Take a cue from the rich and famous this Halloween.
As Halloween creeps up on us, it's time to start preparing for the holiday. Regardless of what you and your partner plan on doing for October 31, odds are you're going to need a costume.
Instead of going for the usual couples costumes, try mixing it up this year by going as a celebrity couple. Yeah, I know what you might be thinking — it feels a little strange to you to dress up as a celebrity even if it is Halloween.
But, it's really no stranger than slathering yourself in fake blood, dragging your feet around, and yelling at anyone who walks by that you're going to eat their brains like an extra from The Walking Dead.
Yeah, now that you've seen it written out, you're starting to change your mind.
Don't worry. We got you.
Dressing up as a celeb couple with your SO can be a lot of fun actually and a really unique idea if the normal couples costumes are making you bored. And you can go in a lot of different ways with it. You can go with old school classic romance, a throwback couple, a current couple, or just something silly and fun.
Here are some celebrity couples Halloween costumes to get you and your main squeeze inspired:
Although opinions may differ on whether or not you consider this celebrity couple to be "iconic", one thing's for sure: they make for a ridiculously easy celebrity couple Halloween costume. If you and your SO want to give the Kimye look a try, it's simple. For her, basically anything skin tight will do paired with very high heels and big hair. And guys can channel their inner Yeezy by wearing all black, shades, some bling, and — of course — fresh kicks.
The legendary Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were notorious for having one of Hollywood's most torrid love affairs. Their most famous movie is without a doubt Cleopatra. You and your honey can re-create the look by picking up a set of Cleopatra and Marc Antony costumes.
Another one of the most famous old Hollywood couples is Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Their love defied generations — literally — when they met, she was 19 and he was 44. You'll have to go full classic Hollywood glamour for this one. Guys can go with a suit, hat, and trench coat, while ladies can wear a streamlined dress with a stylish coat, cute hat, and low pumps. Complete the look with 1940s inspired hair and makeup.
Here's one for all of the couples who love throwbacks. And these days, who doesn't? You can pick up that infamous denim costume for you and your boo here.
This time we're throwing it back to the Jersey Shore. OK, we know what you might be thinking — but it IS Halloween. And whether we'd like to admit it or not, the Jersey Shore was a big part of pop culture. Plus, this could be a funny costume for you and your partner. See how to capture that Jersey vibe here.
You can't go wrong with this couples costume. JFK and Jackie O are a very popular choice for a celebrity Halloween couples costume. And since it's so popular, it's also super easy. For JFK, all you need is a suit and tie — preferably a red one. And for Jackie, the iconic skirt suit and matching hat. If you really want to get into the patriotic spirit, pick up some little American flags for you to wave around.
This is another really popular idea for a celebrity couples costume. Go bold and copy the couple's most well-known look from their On the Run tour.
This is a seriously adorable celebrity couple costume idea. And it doesn't hurt that Lucille Ball was a total icon and trailblazer.
OK, so it's not a couples costume but it is the most stable and longest relationship she's ever had.
So, if you're looking for a good threesome costume idea … just kidding! How can we forget Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's infamous VMA performance?
You have to admit they are a very cute (not to mention one of the most famous) cartoon couple. Plus, they share a really long and interesting history.
Extra points for including Baby Chanel.
A romantic choice, obvs. Whether you go prop or real with the guitar is totally up to you.
I challenge anyone to name one couple more famous than peanut butter and jelly. If everyone is always saying that you and your other half were meant to be, then this is the perfect couples costume for you! Feel free to let your partner know that they are the peanut butter to your jelly.
