Dressing up in costume is even more fun when you and your spouse plan your costume together. Instead of hearing people ask, "Who are you guys supposed to be?" make a real statement by dressing up as a famous couple. Your friends will admire your ingenuity and you'll both love the attention that your one-of-a-kind costumes will bring.

Fictional Famous Couples

There are several easily recognisable fictional couples. Cartoon couples include Betty and Barney Rubble, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Pebbles and Bam-Bam, Shrek and Princess Fiona, Homer and Marge Simpson, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, Beauty and the Beast, Popeye and Olive Oyl, and Daisy and Donald Duck. For costumes in cooler temperatures, try dressing up as Santa and Mrs. Claus. If you're looking for an edgy theme, dress up as Trinity and Neo ("The Matrix"), Bonnie and Clyde, Batman and Catwoman, Superman and Lois Lane, or Danny and Sandy ("Grease"). For romantically themed costume ideas, dress up as Cinderella and Prince Charming, Romeo and Juliet, Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara ("Gone with the Wind"), or Han Solo and Princess Leia ("Star Wars"). If you're looking to have a little sitcom fun, couples can pretend to be Claire and Cliff Huxtable ("Cosby Show"), Al and Peggy Bundy ("Married With Children"), Edith and Archie Bunker ("All in the Family"), George and Louise Jefferson ("The Jeffersons"), Mike and Carol Brady ("The Brady Bunch"), and Florida and James Evans ("Good Times"). Same-sex couples can dress as Batman and Robin, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison ("The Odd Couple""), or Ernie and Bert ("Sesame Street").

Non-fictional Famous Couples

To add a little realism to your costume experience, you and your spouse can don costumes as couples recently or currently in the media. Dress up as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, George W. and Laura Bush, George and Barbara Bush, Jay-Z and Beyonce, or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Same-sex couples can dress as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi.

Historical Famous Couples

Couple's costumes can also be a blast from the past. Couples can dress up as Adam and Eve, Mark Antony and Cleopatra, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, John and Jackie Kennedy, Eleanor and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Sonny and Cher, George and Martha Washington, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, or Winnie and Nelson Mandela.
