20 Cosplay-Inspired Halloween Costume Ideas For Couples

You don't have to be into cosplay or be a gamer to wear one of these creative video game inspired Halloween costumes.

Maybe you were invited to a party with a video game theme, and have no idea what to wear.

I get it, not EVERYONE is into video games. (I myself, am not.) BUT, there's no doubt that there are some characters out there that can definitely be turned into a stellar Halloween costume.

Better yet, if your boo is a little hesitant to dress up for Halloween as a video game character, suggesting the two of you go as a video game couple might make him more eager to participate. You don't have to be knowledgeable about the game perse, you just have to know how to dress up as your character.

And there are SO many video game personalities you can become inspired by (thanks to today's graphics and designers).

Even just by looking at what some of them wear, you know you'll be able to come up with a great costume (and sometimes even a sexy one, depending on who you choose). You can even save the outfit for a cosplay event down the road. 

For most of these characters, a DIY costume might be the best way to go if you want to showcase the same creativity and detail used in their actual appearance. If this still doesn't sound like an appealing approach to your costume, I suggest you give it a try anyway!

Not only will your boyfriend (or girlfriend) be happy that s/he gets to geek out, but you'll both have an opportunity to experience Halloween in a new way. Even if you're not into video games, you'll probably recognize a lot of these!

If this is sounding more interesting to you, here are 20 video game characters that can be turned into an epic Halloween costume:

Not exactly a romantic gamer couple, but these two definitely have a love/hate relationship. Vanellope is a wanna-be racer who gets picked on for being a glitch in the game system. Ralph, who at first finds Vanellope extremely annoying, helps her build the perfect car and shows her how to stand up to all the other mean racers.

They have more of a brother/sister relationship.

This would be a perfect costume idea if you were being set up with a blind date on Halloween. In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud is experiencing a psychotic break during the time he knows Aerith. He never really gets to be his true self around her, and he never gets the chance to because Aerith eventually dies.

So it sort of resembles being on a blind date, because Cloud and Aerith never really knew each other either.
