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.

Pimp and Ho
One of the commenters at TresSugar suggested this classic. He wears his leather jacket (any loud, slick-seeming jacket will do), a shirt unbuttoned to the middle of his chest and doesn't wash his hair. As a bonus, add a couple of long chains and big hat. You wear a skirt up to here, a cleavage-bearing, sparkly top and the highest heels you own.

Each Other
Dress up as each other! DivineCaroline says, "couples can find an easy costume—by cross-dressing—with him in her evening gown, and her in his suit."

The Dead Couple
For this costume, you dress as yourselves but you paint your faces white, with black lips and black around your eyes. Take it a step further and wear your wedding attire—a dead bride and groom. Double bonus: purchase some fake blood at any party or halloween store and sprinkle it liberally on your clothes, face and body to really emphasizes the "dead" part of the costume.


Adam and Eve
This costume works best if you're at an indoor event—it requires wearing very little and some extra body-confidence. Cut a white sheet into the shape of leaves and draw some green veins on them, or make leaves out of paper or cardboard. Pin them to your shorts or underwear and bra. You can get a rubber snake at most toy stores, or use a green, brown, or black scarf and create a forked snake tongue with a piece of cardboard. Carry an apple. You can both carry apples and snakes, or one of you wears the snake and the other sports the apple.
