4. The Hunger Games' Effie Trinket & Haymitch Abernathy. If you're not the kind of lady who is happy to slip on a pre-fab costume, transform yourself head-to-toe as the outrageous, blinding Effie Trinket to stand beside.
If you're willing to be outrageous, colorful and tortured in your clothes, as Effie's outfits were originally created by movie costumers to be to the Hunger Games character. Dressed in formal suiting with pocket square and pocket watch is Haymitch Abernathy.
Effie's attire will need planning. Start with a Marilyn Monroe platinum bobbed wig, and get technicolor from there with this amazing Effie-inspired make-up tutorial, or a Versailles-esque corseted dress and matching hat. Veer into Steampunk territory if you’re buying a costume for Haymitch, being mindful of the accessories as much as your counterpart. The duo who is best for these parts? The couple who already has shares an over-the-top love-hate relationship.
5. Batman & Catwoman. Slip into a Dark Knight Rises rendition of Batman and Catwoman with purchased Spandexy body suits and face masks and built-in abs ($38 and up). Or go old school with a tip of the grappling hook to the 1960's TV show — Adam West's Batman in blue bottoms and squeaky-clean schemes and Catwoman in full Eartha Kitt-meowwwwing fashion.
Two gents together can go old-school and Dark Knight Rises Batman, or classic Robin alongside the '60s superhero.
6. Tyrion Lannister & Shae from Game of Thrones. This ever cute couple is one of the nicest parts of the show, which often only brings tears and kills everyone you love. Though you can't shrink yourself to Tyrion's height, put on your most regal attire, draw a scar across your face and spout witty comments througout the night. You'll be unmistakable. Oh, and don't forget the wine. For Shae, a simple long brown dress with a belt will do. Just add a brown wavy wig and an accent. You're all set.
7. Black Widow & Thor from The Avengers. Strong, sexy and just wicked enough, it may (or may not) be a stretch to get into these characters. While Captain America and the Hulk top the picks for kids’ costumes this year, you two can make your Avengers looks a bit more R-rated (or at least PG-13). Slide into a pleathery bodysuit and flaming red wig to do Black Widow Scarlett Johansson style, and flowing blonde tresses and giant (ummm) hammer to play Thor properly.
There are many Avengers couples costume variations for same-sex couples if you both want to play male characters. If more than one person wants to dress like a lady, you may have to jump comic brands (hello, Wonder Woman) or be willing to go "Lady America" for this holiday.
What classic or hot-right-now couple costumes will you consider this Halloween?
