How To Pick The Best Couples Costume
Now it’s the fun part – finding the costumes! When you are trying to choose scary Halloween costumes to wear together, I have a few tips that will speed up the shopping experience.
Draw From A Hat
When you are trying to decide on a costume together you won’t always agree. And that’s ok! Each person should put their top three choices into a bucket. Then, ask someone else to draw the winning choice.
This takes all the stress away from one person getting their way over the other person. To keep it really fair, the person that didn’t get their choice picked should get to pick the costume next time.
Choose The Theme First
There are so many different scary Halloween costumes for couples out there that it can be pretty overwhelming. Narrow down your search by choosing the theme first. Are you going to dress like a movie? Time period? Will it be bloody/gory? Or just spooky/ghostly?
Check The Weather
Costumes like ghosts and witches are really easy to dress up for warmer weather – just add heavier sweatshirts and coats. If you live somewhere that gets kinda cold and you’ll be outside, choose a costume that has sleeves and pants.
Costumes don’t have to cost a fortune. I found some pretty affordable choices in the list below. Even so, you can still probably find ways to make costumes out of craft supplies and clothes from thrift stores.
The black character from Squid Games just needs all black clothes and a mask. The mask might be tough to make, but a handy crafter can figure it out.
Make Regular Costumes Scarier
Reuse costumes from last year, just make them scarier! A bit of face paint and red paint adds blood to any costume.
