7 Hottest Halloween Costumes For Couples [EXPERT]
You call that a costume?
It's that time of year again ...

By Jessica Ashley, Sr Editor for GalTime.com

For the love of all things spooky and made of Spandex, you and your date cannot go to a Halloween party in the old plug-and-socket costumes. Wilma and Fred are so last year and there's no call to wiggle into lingerie when it's 39-degrees outside. Thankfully, we've come to your rescue with some couples halloween costume ideas. Here's how to dress to impress when you have a date for Halloween this year.

1. Jay Gatsby & Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gasby. Always had a thing for the roaring twenties? Then you’re well on your way to embodying the most glamorous couple on the big screen this year. Pull together a short glimmering or lacy dress and some equally as sparkly accessories (a head piece is a must!) and you will be completely Megan.

Your very own Gatsby is just as easy to outfit — a snazzy suite or tux will do the trick for this one. Check out this detailed guide to choose which look you want to go for. Have some fun with it and hand out fake invitations to one of your lavish parties.

2. Portlandia's "Put a Bird on It" Couple. One part hipster, seven parts bird-emblazoned — that's all it takes to dress up as Bryce Shivers and Lisa Eversman, the characters created by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein on the indie hit show poking fun at life in Portland. Get started with a thrifted dress, clunky shoes and floppy hat for Lisa and a bow tie, suspenders and skinny jeans for Bryce. Then brush up on all the funny, mannerisms, tote bags and toast embellished with birds on this clip from the show.

3. The Hunger Games' Katniss & Peeta. Skip the sexy get-ups and cutesy costumes and go fierce this Halloween.

Dig through some boxes in the basement for your old combat boots and bow-and-arrow set or follow along with this great DIY guide to put together all the gear Katniss needs. Bring Peeta to life with cargo pants, boots, a tight black tee and plenty of dirt and fake blood caked on the face.

Or order all the Hunger Games accessories you need online, from Mockingjay pin to District 12 training shirts. A little mussed hair, sweat and looks of desperation will make you even better players, too. Read more...
