There are so many great Halloween costumes for couples that it can be downright overwhelming. There are costumes that are scary, costumes that are clever and costumes that are downright sweet —literally. (Don’t miss the s’mores couple costume below!)

If you and your sweetie need some costume inspiration, we’ve rounded up the best looks for couples — from old favorites like Morticia and Gomez Addams to some very on-trend 2023 costume options from your favorite movies and TV shows. Need more inspo? Check out our favorite pet Halloween costumes, indoor Halloween decorations and outdoor Halloween decorations for a super-spooky season.

Sure to be a popular costume this Halloween, these Barbie and Ken Western-style costumes are just one of many "Barbie" movie variations to choose from. But, if you'd rather skip the Ken, you can always just go with your favorite group of Barbies instead.

It's inconceivable how good these costumes are. Recreate one of film's favorite storybook couples with these Westley and Buttercup looks. Though you'll have to find your own rodents of unusual size, men with six fingers and friendly giants to round out your crew.

Creepy but still elegant, these Emily and Victor "Corpse Bride" costumes perfectly pay homage to the iconic Tim Burton style we love at Halloween.

Got pickleball fever? Let everyone know about your new favorite sport with this ball and paddle duo costume.

Hero and villain duos always make for great costumes. These Shego and Kim Possible outfits are ideal for those with a fondness for Disney nostalgia and who want costumes that won't need tons of readjusting during wear.

Stay ready to protect the planet of Drool as Sharkboy and Lava Girl. But don't worry, you don't need to stay by water or hot lava for these costumes to sizzle.

The perfect costume for fun-loving friends, these loud Harry and Llyod costumes are sure to get plenty of chuckles all night long.

Feel like royalty this Halloween when you embody Lisa and Akeem from "Coming to America." You're sure to be some of the best dressed guests at any party you attend in this royal wedding garb.

Pairs of animals have been in style since the days of Noah and his ark. We love this set of matching octopus onesies for a couple who can’t keep their hands —or, um, their tentacles —off each other.

Show your patriotic pride with a classic American duo: Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty. As a bonus, the costumes work equally well solo as they do in a pair.

Speaking of pairs, here’s another classic pair: a pair of sneakers!

For "Game of Thrones" devotees and fantasy lovers, dragons are superstars, and you’ll be the star of your Halloween party in this matching dragon couples costume.

There’s something so funny about dressing up as a “Single” as part of a couples costume! This Kraft Singles Pack and Kraft Single is a novel take on food costumes that will make even the lactose intolerant smile.

You’ll be the spookiest couple on the block in Tipsy Elves’ matching mummy couples costume. The hooded, one-piece costumes (with pockets!) for men and women are sold separately; matching baby and children’s costumes are also available.

Everyone’s favorite fireside treat is now available as a Halloween costume! The s’mores couples costume kit includes two graham cracker tunics, one with toasted marshmallow and the other with chocolate.

The Addams Family practically screams Halloween. Morticia and Gomez Addams costumes are instantly recognizable and can take you from the most casual Halloween bash all the way to the fanciest fancy-dress party on your social calendar.

Food costumes offer unlimited possibilities for couples to show their Halloween spirit. This three-piece BLT group costume is perfect for a group or the couple who wants to include a single friend in their Halloween fun.

“Yellowstone” is a massive hit with a massively devoted following. Spirit Halloween has all the “Yellowstone” costume options you could want, including the show’s iconic couple, Rip and Beth.

You absolutely cannot go wrong with a classic skeleton costume. We love this unisex version of the form because it’s a super-comfortable onesie-style costume with a surprising twist: The skeleton’s bones glow in the dark!

This one-piece romper-style Thing 1 and Thing 2 costume comes with two patches, so you can be Thing 1 this year and Thing 2 next year. The costume set also includes a wig and character gloves.

Bonnie and Clyde is a classic for a reason: They’re an instantly recognizable pair, and their clothes are both comfortable and formal enough to wear to a dressy Halloween party.

Everyone’s favorite trendy breakfast is now a costume! Move over, chocolate and peanut butter; avocado and toast is the hot new food pairing and Halloween costume.

If you have more of a sweet tooth, ditch the über-trendy avocado toast costume and dress up as one half of an Oreo cookie. You may have to flip a coin to decide who gets to wear the cream stuffing part of the costume, though!

Inflatable costumes are super popular these days, and there are plenty of couples costume versions to choose from. We like these “Monsters, Inc.” inflatables, which work equally as well solo as in a pair.

Couples costumes don’t have to center around famous romantic pairs — Uncle Fester and Cousin Itt from “The Addams Family,” a father-son duo (right?), make a great set of costumes for a couple.

BFFs and family members are ripe territory for couples costumes, but another, slightly cheekier option is to dress up as a pair of adversaries. And who is more adversarial than Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West? Bonus: Adding a winged monkey is an easy way to turn this couples costume into a group affair.

Disney movies are another excellent source of adversarial costume inspiration! Ursula the Sea Witch and Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” make a fun couples costume concept that’s a bit more unexpected than an Ariel and Prince Eric costume.

Be the flip to your beloved’s flop with this flip-flop costume. In the event of a breakup, the costume becomes a flip-flop without its mate.

Instead of going as painter and portrait, how about going as the painting itself? "American Gothic" is a classic of American art, and of American Halloween costumes.

This women’s burglar costume is the exact right colors for it to serve as McDonald’s Hamburglar and his prey, a burger.

It may be hard to decide which half of the couple dresses up as the angel and which one dresses up as the devil, or it might be totally obvious who is a force of good and who is a force of evil! This option from Tipsy Elves has men's and women's devil options for whoever best brings out your angelic side.

Herman and Lily Munster are an instantly recognizable TV couple who also happen to perfectly embody the Halloween spirit. The suite of “Munsters” costumes are also available in plus sizes, and if your family grows over time, you can add Eddie Munster to the mix.

Movie pairings are always a great source of Halloween inspiration, especially if the movie is one like “Beetlejuice” that has more than a bit of spookiness built into the plot.

Foodie couples and Francophiles will love this foam rubber wine and cheese pairing that slips on over street clothes.
