YourTango recently gave Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon some Halloween costume ideas, after Mariah confessed that she and her new hubby didn't know who or what to dress as this year. That presented a frightening prospect — what if there were other celeb couples out there with nothing to wear to their velvet rope parties? With Halloween less than two weeks away, we thought we would offer up some more creative costume ideas so that these dazzling duos won't have to face the horror of sitting at home in their sweatpants, handing out candy to all the revelers.
Halloween! The same month that's synonymous with ghosts and goblins is also prime time for gettin' some. And because we're just so durned helpful, we've listed the top four ways to do just that while incorporating your favorite fall activities. Yes, they're cheesy, and yes, they'll probably work.

These costumes take minimal time and effort but make you look super clever. Below YourTango's five easy, funny (and punny) couples costumes.
