Famous Twosomes for Halloween Costumes

Updated April 17, 2017

Halloween isn't just an opportunity for children to have fun, adults can join in, too. More and more grown ups are throwing Halloween parties and getting into the spirit of things. Famous twosomes are a great theme for Halloween costume parties, especially if you are going with your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend or even just a best friend. It takes off the pressure of thinking and creating a costume all on your own and adds to the fun when you can role-play as a famous couple with a loved one.

Political Theme: Bill and Hillary Clinton

If you decide on a political theme for your costume, a Bill and Hillary Clinton twosome is a great option that everyone is sure to recognise. You can make things simple by seeking out Bill and Hillary face masks, available in many fancy dress specialist retailers. Alternatively if you opt to do it yourself, hair should be grey for Bill, teamed with a grey suit and for Hillary, short, blond hair with a colourful suit jacket and skirt. The Democratic party emblem, the stars and stripes donkey, should be worn somewhere on each suit, or even painted on the cheek if you are feeling particularly creative. Accessorise with campaign paraphernalia like banners and leaflets, which you could hand out for fun at the party.

Movie Theme: Sandy and Danny From "Grease"

If a movie theme is what you decide on, Sandy and Danny are a fun and simple famous twosome you could attend a costume party dressed as. Taken from the film "Grease," Sandy and Danny are the leading actors in the musical, which is set in the 1950s. The most famous scene of the film is the fairground scene, when Danny finally declares his love for Sandy and they get together. To dress like Sandy, wear black high heels, tight, black leather trousers, a black cropped top, red lipstick and curly, long blond hair. For the Danny costume, you'll need a leather jacket, gelled and combed back hair, a fitted black T-shirt, jeans and black shoes.

Cartoon Theme: Marge and Homer Simpson

For something fun and unique, you could dress up like the famous cartoon couple, Marge and Homer Simpson from the cartoon sitcom, "The Simpsons." For Marge's big, blue hair, seek out a wig from a costume retailers and team it with an orange beaded necklace, long green dress and orange shoes to match. For Homer, wear blue jeans, grey shoes and a white polo T-shirt, which you'll need to stuff if you aren't carrying your own beer belly. Paint your face and body with yellow face paint and use the catchphrases like "Doh!" and "mmm Donuts" during the night when you're in character.

Television Theme: Morticia and Gomez Addams

Ideal for Halloween because of their spooky look, Morticia and Gomez Addams play husband and wife in the television show, "The Addams Family." For Morticia, you need a long, black wig, a floor-length black dress, black lipstick, red nail varnish and rings on the fingers. Her husband Gomez wears a black and white striped suit with a white shirt and a black bow-tie. Gomez should also have a moustache which thins at each end and points slightly upward. You should paint your faces white to add to the eerie look associated with the Addams couple.
