Couples’ costumes are the best way to celebrate Halloween with your bae, but they’re even better when you can come up with a clever idea that will blow everyone’s minds. It’s easy to go to the store and buy the cheeky “plug and socket” get-up or go as two halves of a PB & J. But, Halloween is a time to think outside the box and show off your creativity. You can do better than the usual costume store fare.
If you’re looking for a couples’ costume idea that’s both exciting and original, then you and your honey should look no further than these insanely brilliant costumes from the best decade ever: the 90s.
