Halloween is the perfect excuse for best friends to dress as their all-time favourite characters. From movies to old-fashioned fairy tales, there is virtually no end to the ideas you can use. You can make many of the costumes yourself or choose to order more elaborate renditions from professional costume providers.

Video game costumes

Incorporate your love of gaming into your costume ideas. Guys in particular can get crazy with Mario and Luigi costumes. If you're a mixed-gender pair, Mario and Princess Peach are the way to go. Take a walk down memory lane with Pacman and Ms. Pacman or Pacman and one of those pesky ghosts. Sonic and Tails are another favourite duo to consider.

Casino fun

Take a gamble with casino-themed costumes. Card costumes are always a blast; however, be sure your cards equal the magic number 21 as a blackjack duo. Dress up as a slot machine and a beleaguered gambler. Looking for the simplest casino costume to make with your BFF? Two large cardboard boxes easily transform into a pair of dice. Pose as a dealer and cocktail waitress or a cheesy rich gambler in a tacky suit and a doting and ditsy "broad" with feather boa and loads of casino chips in hand.

Fairy tale costumes

Introduce the world to your favourite fairy tale characters this Halloween. Alice and the Mad Hatter make quite the couple while trick-or-treating or attending an adult costume party. Pose as your two favourite dwarfs or dress as Snow White and Bashful. Allow the Big Bad Wolf to accompany one of the Three Little Pigs to the evening's festivities while Grandma can escort that "other" wolf the world loves to hate from Little Red Robin Hood.

On-screen favourites

Dress as time-honoured movie and television favourites. Surprise friends when you put together simple costumes representing Eddie and Marylin from the Munsters or go all out as Lily and Herman. The fellas can easily pull off Starsky and Hutch or Bo and Luke Duke from "The Dukes of Hazard." Modern talk-show personalities you may choose from include Regis and Kelly or Hoda and Kathy Lee. Who says best friends have to dress as best friends? Dress as Jacob and Edward from the "Twilight" series and see who garners the biggest "team" of followers this Halloween.
