23 Couples’ Costumes That Won’t Make Everyone Roll Their Eyes At You

When you find yourself in a serious relationship around Halloween, you will, in all likelihood, feel that familiar tug: the urge to coordinate costumes with your significant other and achieve the coveted position of “Best Costumes at the Party.” It makes sense — you finally have a human in your life who feels morally obligated to make you happy! Why not utilize such an asset while you can?

However, I am here to tell you that such an accolade will never be yours if you simply dress as matching superheroes. Those costumes don’t inspire your fellow party guests. Rather, they just serve as reminders that you’re part of a couple — which basically gives every single person at the party reason to hate you.

Circumvent this hatred by choosing a creative couple’s costume that will charm and delight your peers, as well as your significant other! Get clever! Get unique!

And for God’s sake, please don’t dress as the Joker and Harley Quinn!
