Hello, and welcome to our guide on the best Halloween couples costumes ideas for 2023. Let’s be honest, Halloween is always a fun event, but it’s even better with your best friend, love of your life or partner in crime by your side. Couples costumes are such a hit every Halloween and partners love to hashtag couplegoals on their Instagram pics. Why not join them and team up as the baddest, sexiest or scariest duo this Halloween?

Whether you’re looking to break free from Arkham Asylum and unleash havoc as The Joker and Harley Quinn, or you’re teaming up with your best friend Robin, as Batman or Batwoman, we’ve got you covered. Check out our top 30 Halloween couples costumes below. Share them with your other half and decide on the perfect outfit together!


1.The Hairy and The Scary

We’re starting off our list of the best couples Halloween costume ideas with two characters from the 90’s classic, The Addams Family. They provide a slightly contrasting demeanour, as Cousin Itt is funnier (not to mention hairier) than the gothic, moody teen that is Wednesday. They make a great duo, creating frights and laughter all around. A big win!

2. Clueless Besties

‘OMG girl, I can’t believe you’re with him. Ugh, as if!’ Continuing on with the theme of 90’s classics, Clueless brought us a lot of sass, popularity, checked print blazers and short skirts. Team up with your bestie as Cher and Dionne as you strut into the party as two of the most popular girls around.

3. Ghostly Bride and Groom

Who’s getting married in the morning? If you and your partner fancy reliving your wedding day this Halloween, then transform into the ghostly Bride and Groom as you renew your vows. You’ll send chills down the guests’ spines at your wedding as you tie the knot for a second time around! And by wedding, we mean party! That’s the best part anyway 😊

4. Terrifying Clown Couple

Clowns make an excellent Halloween costume, and even more so if you’re going as a duo. Frighten the living daylight out of your friends and family as you dress as the infamous killer clown Pennywise, from the blockbuster movie, IT. If your goal is to scare on Halloween, then this is the perfect couples Halloween costume idea for you both!

5. Greek God and Goddess Royalty

If you’ve ever fancied becoming the ultimate power couple and have others serve you hand to foot, then why not go as a Greek god and goddess couple? Ladies, you’ve finally got your prince Hercules! Whilst it’s not traditionally a scary Halloween costume like the others on the list, it still makes a fantastic couples Halloween costume. They’re easy to wear, comfortable and affordable. What’s not to love?

6. Spell Casting Couple

It’s time to grab your wand and cast a couple of spells this Halloween (especially to those that haven’t been the nicest to you this year!). Whether you’re looking to conjure up a new recipe, or want to defeat the darkest lord of all time, together you’ll be unstoppable this Halloween.

7. ‘Let’s play’ Couple

‘Hi, I’m Chucky, wanna play?’ Let’s forget about the cute little dolls we used to play with as a kid. Move over Barbie and Ken, as Chucky is in town! Slight possessed, slightly creepy, Chucky plays the freakish doll from the movie, Childs Play. One Chucky is bad enough, let alone two, so together, you’ll be double the trouble this Halloween!

8. Skullicious Couple

If you and your partner are looking for something a little more this Halloween, why not together celebrate the lives of those who passed away, as part of the largest Mexican celebration, Día de Los Muertos. Grab the most floral outfit you can find ladies, and gents, pop on your suit and get painting your skull faces ready this Halloween! This theme is popular every single Halloween and it’s quickly gaining traction. There’s no denying, it looks awesome!


Day of The Dead Costumes


9. Team Top Gun

The next hit couples Halloween costume idea has to be the matching men and women’s Top Gun costumes. Pretend you’re in a film set from the movie, as you refine your flying skills in the air with each other. The classic is being imagined with a brand new Tom Cruise movie and we can’t wait to see it. This is another reason why this costume idea is right on trend. Question is, who will be the pilot and who will be the co-pilot?

10. Intergalactic Duo

In a land, far, far away, life may or may not exist, that’s only beyond our wildest dreams. If you’ve ever been intrigued to find out what life is out there, then you and your partner can team up and transform into astronauts for Halloween. Don’t forget to take your camera and get proof of life in the outer world! This classic NASA orange spacesuit look is our favourite. You won’t be missed on the dancefloor!


Astronaut Costumes



11. Cops and Robbers

Is one of you as good as gold and the other a little bit of a rebel? Dress up to show it as you transform into a classic cop and convict. Put your partner in handcuffs and march them to the party. There’s a ton of different police and convict outfits to choose from so it’s completely up to you what look you go for.


Cops and Robbers Costumes


12. Blood Thirsty Couple

Another classic character to dress up as for Halloween is a vampire. They sure love a bit of blood (from humans, of course) and hovering mysteriously in the dark. Cause double the trouble as you team up together as the ultimate Halloween power couple. Vampires can be creepy or sexy, so why not be both? Go all out in a full-blown costume or simply pop in some vampire fangs, apply fake blood and pop your collar. Just watch out for the garlic!

13. Superhero Couple

It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get ready to save the town this Halloween! Put on your mask and cape and get ready for action as you dress up as iconic couples from the superhero universe. We all know that Batman can go it alone, but he’s always better with a sidekick. Batman and Batgirl or Batman and Robin make a great Halloween couples costume. Other ideas include Superman and Supergirl, Spiderwoman and Spiderman, Black Panther and Shuri…

Superhero Costumes


14. Seafaring Pirates

Ooooargh me hearties! It’s time to get on your hands and knees and get to work at scrubbing the decks nice and clean (otherwise you may run the risk of having to walk the plank!). Rule the seas with your partner and go on the hunt for some booty! Pirates is a theme that goes hand-in-hand with Halloween and any part you attend is sure to have other crew mates. Create your own costume and accessorise all you like or do ‘pirates’ on a grand scale with an all-in-one costume. This couples costume idea is great for any budget.

15. The Challengers

 Are you looking to repay back any money that you owe? If so, enter the most deadliest game on planet earth, Squid Game and see how far you'll go. Whether you want to take on the role of one of the vulnerable players or one of the Front Man's loyal guards, you'll need to be thick skinned and not afraid of anything...these challenges are brutal!

16. Beetlejuice Babes

We all know what happens when you say Beetlejuice three times! Why not do a good dead this Halloween and help a family reclaim back their beloved house, just like in the movie? Beetlejuice is pretty disgusting in both his habits and appearance, but he’s still loved by all, and the legend lives on every Halloween. Don the black and white striped outfit of this well-known Halloween character this October 31st!

17. The Dark & The Powerful 

Will you sway towards the dark side, or find your inner good? The two most powerful wizards in the wizarding world can't be any more different. Dumbledore will always remain the strongest, but as soon as Lord Voldemort grabs hold of the Elder Wand, things take a turn for the worst. Battle out with your friend this Halloween in the ultimate show down: Voldemort v Dumbledore.

18. Voodoo Masters

Transform yourself and your bestie into freaky voodoo masters this Halloween and have fun controlling unruly party guests! The art of voodoo is being able to manipulate and harm others through the use of a mysterious doll and this ancient African practice has been adapted into popular movie characters. Dress up with traditional tribal decoration with the classic skull accessories, and you’ll be a voodoo priest or priestess in no time.

19. Mr and Mrs Voorhees

What’s that you can see lurking over in the distance? Straight out of Crystal Lake is the most feared movie serial killer of all time, Jason Voorhees. To make things even more frightening, his wife is joining in on the fun too. Mr and Mrs Voorhees make a classic couples Halloween costume, but the question is, who will dare to cross the lake and fear The Voorhees’ wrath?

20. The Addams Family

Scary Halloween characters don’t always need to look scary at first glance. Morticia and Gomez Addams are the husband and wife duo from The Addams Family. They don’t look as scary as werewolves and clowns but you sure don’t want to get on the wrong side of them! Team up with your partner in crime as you glide across the dancefloor as the unusual but charming husband and wife. We can’t think of a better couples Halloween costume idea than these guys!

21. The Fantasy Couple

If you and your partner consider yourselves as being adventure seekers, then you’ll want to enter a land of mystery, evil queens and an overly happy Cheshire cat. As it’s Halloween, it’s not like the Disney movie with flowers and rainbows. Transform into an eerily dark version of the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland, with evil versions of the Mad Hatter and Alice. Just watch out – you don’t want to get your heads chopped off!

22. Circus Jesters

Are you and your partner the ultimate jokers? Do you love to play pranks on your friends and family? Now’s the time to brush up on your best Halloween tricks (not treats) as you give yourself as makeover to become a jester and harlequin. Think bright colours, clown make-up and plenty of jumping around. You’ll need an animated character (or a few drinks) to pull this one off.

23. Storybook Couple

We all remember the tale of sweet, innocent Red Riding Hood, as she wanders through the woods to look after her poorly grandmother. Red Riding Hood is a good girl gone bad this Halloween, and is perhaps no longer afraid of the big bad wolf? Red and the Big Bad Wolf makes a great couples Halloween costume, and you can even add a bit of blood to your costumes to ‘goreify’ your look.

24. The Arkham Villains

Straight out of Arkham Asylum, the oh so troublesome duo, The Joker and Harley Quinn. They’re on the loose and are ready to cause a stir in Gotham City! If you consider you and your partner to be the ‘baddest’ couple at the party, then Joker and Harley are an eccentric team of villains that you can’t ignore for your couples Halloween fancy dress. Get creative with colourful hair, temporary tattoos and fake weapons to really perfect the DC Comics character look.

25. Mad as a Hatter

Are you a bit on the mad side? Are you a lover of tea parties and a spot of afternoon tea with friends? Mad Hatter is the most mischievous character from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. He loves being a host, but above all, a mad host! Now that you've got your outfit sorted, get creative and nail down your best acting skills!

26. The Ghost Hunters

The next couples costume that’s fit for Halloween on our list is the Ghostbusters. If you have a fun Halloween activity planned and are exploring haunted house (or maybe an escape room?) then it’s time to put your skills to the test, as you hunt down creatures of the supernatural. Go for the classic look from the original movie or the new and colourful Ghostbusters outfits from the recent movies.

27. Walking Dead Zombies

Head back to your school years and cheer on the team! Zombie costumes come in all shapes and sizes, but the Zombie Cheerleader and Football Player is a particularly excellent idea for couples. They may not have the energy to create an exciting game of football, but they’re bound to scare off the other players. Practice your best cheer routine and rock up to the party in these matching outfits!

28. 20s fashionistas


We're heading back to the 1920s, a decade full of class, style and a lot of sass. You'll out dress all of the competition at your upcoming Halloween party, as you become the ultimate couples goals. Master the true 1920s attitude, and you're all set!

29. Religious Fanatics

Nuns, The Pope, bishops and priests were never intended to be scary, but now Halloween has arrived, these religious professions have a new look! Feast your eyes on these scary costumes! Scary Mary and an undead Pope make terrifying costume ideas for couples that want to creep friends out. Walk up behind other party guests and wait until they turn around. Their reaction will keep you entertained all night long!

30. The Devious Doctors

The final couples Halloween costume idea on our list is the classic doctor and nurse duo. Let’s face it, they are the real heroes, working day in and day out. For one night, and for one night only on October 31st, they transform into frightening characters that you’d never trust with a needle or surgeon kit. Add lots of fake blood to transform this simple but effective outfit into something that’s fitting for Halloween.
