Don't have a Halloween costume? Make it easy on yourself and your honey.

Attending a Halloween party with your honey this year? Why not give a couples costume a go? TresSugar asked its users for their opinions on dressing up with your sweetie. Some thought it was cheesy, but most of the users were for it.  "Absolutely a great idea, I love it! Definitely a bonding experience, and a literal example of how a couple is more than just a sum of its parts," commented user DCstar.

Last year we suggested some last-minute costumes of the witty, conceptual variety. This year we present some literal options, inspired by our friends, with a few ideas of our own. Five Last-Minute Couples Halloween Costumes

The Men in Black
AOL Personals suggests going as The Men In Black.

Dress is black suits, black shades and buy large, inexpensive squirt guns. Spray paint the toy guns silver and fill them will a choice beverage for the evening. It will save time from the punch line and you'll hear everyone say, "Oh my gosh-why didn't I think of that?"

Flasher and Victim
The Frisky suggests going as a flasher.

Got a trench coat? You're a flasher now. This one’s great because it’s an interactive costume: open and close, open and close.  And don't even think about wearing underwear—that's cheating!

To make it a couples thing, add a victim. It's more creative for the woman to be the flasher, and the man can be a little boy. Put some freckles on his face with brown eye-liner and give him a lollypop—one that comes from your pocket, of course. This costume is somewhat subversive—it'll take an open-minded crowd to appreciate this one!

Jon and Kate Gosselin
Lemondrop gives us the run-down on dressing as the male half of this dysfunctional pair.

He'll need more than just an Ed Hardy shirt and some pooka beads. No, your Jon also needs an accessory that best personifies a guy with a wife and eight kids on a hit TV show about his family life who decides to chuck it all to smugly flit from gal-pal to gal-pal and make Vegas club appearances. There's a name for a guy like that, but the douchebag costume has already been done, so let's go with the next best choice: asshat. There's your costume.

The Jon Gosselin asshat is a plain cap with a foam rubber butt glued on top of it. And don't forget the Ed Hardy shirt—the louder, the better.

Kate will take a bit of planning because the wig really is key—unless you want to invest in a new haircut. So this one is a bit less last-minute than the others.
