Finding a Halloween costume can be a challenge, and for a couple, this challenge is even greater, as you want to find costumes that go together well and that you both enjoy. There numerous ideas for Halloween costumes that couples can wear together and if you and your significant other are trying to find a costume for the holiday, learning some ideas for a cohesive couples costume can help.

Historical Couples

Think of couples in history for your Halloween costume. Historical couples are timeless, so chances are people won't be left guessing as to who you are. Think of couples from different time periods such as Anthony and Cleopatra, John and Jackie Kennedy, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt or another notorious couple in history. For a more current turn on past events, dress as a recent president and his first lady, such as Bill and Hilary Clinton.

Cartoon Couples

Couples from cartoons provide for some funny and cute costume ideas. The two of you could think of a childhood favourite you both loved and go as a couple from that. For instance Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Archie and Veronica or Betty, Homer and Marge Simpson, Bugs and Babs Bunny or a cartoon prince and princess from one of the popular Disney movies of the past.

Paired Objects

Get creative and think of objects that go together to dress up as. Dress up as food items such as peanut butter and jelly or salt and pepper. For the tech savvy couple dress up like a cell phone and charger or as personal data devices and go as "Hand-Holding" PDAs for a romantic spin on handheld PDAs. Consider things in everyday life that pair well together, and select a pairing that would make for fun and creative costumes.

Celebrity Couples

Stay current and go as a famous celebrity couple that is in the media. If you and your significant other have a favourite celebrity couple, opt to go as them. Read tabloid magazines for ideas about currently popular couples, such as Tom and Katie Cruise, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith or David and Victoria Beckham. Whatever couple you choose, select an image of the pair and use it to shop around for costume pieces at thrift and costume shops.
