Easy DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just around the corner. These DIY couple/duo costumes are fun, affordable, original, and easy to bring to life!

01

Johnny Castle & Baby

01

The obvious costume is to go for "the lift" end scene, but we prefer this fun, light-hearted and very sexy dance moment. Plus, everything they're wearing is probably in your closet (except for the jorts maybe).

02

Sandy & Danny

Sandy & Danny

All you need is a black off-the-shoulder top, leather leggings, teased out hair, a leather jacket and a couple of fake cigarettes. Tell me about it, stud.

03

Kim Possible & Ron Stoppable

Kim Possible & Ron Stoppable

Girl power! And a man who's willing to be the Ron Stoppable to your Kim Possible. All you need is a tight black crop top, green army pants and perhaps a red wig. Ron can wear that red sports jersey with a black long-sleeve underneath, and maybe hold a naked mole rat. Also, has anyone noticed the similarities between these two and Hermione and Ron? #Connections.

04

Jim & Pam

04

Just be sure to look slightly geeky, and only hang out with each other the whole night, laughing at what everyone else is doing and staring deeply into each other's eyes.

05

Thing 1 & Thing 2

Thing 1 & Thing 2

Do you and your partner find yourselves dressing alike, taking on each other's mannerisms, and becoming... quite literally, each other? Play into it by dressing up as Thing 1 and Thing 2.

06

Fembot & Austin Powers

Fembot & Austin Powers

There are some Halloweens where you feel like no one has a clue who you're dressed as. Kind of a drag, right? Here's a timeless zeitgeist costume you won't have to worry about that. Let's bring back one of the most beloved, outlandish franchises of the 90s; groovy baby, yeah!

07

Grandparents

07

Not all costumes have to be scary (though the concept of aging is actually, honestly, what we're all really most scared of right?). If your own grandparents or parents are nearby, you can assemble the pieces of this costume directly from their wardrobes. Stock up on items like pantyhose, hair rollers, thick glasses, maybe a walker, pockets full of those multi-colored hard candies that nobody likes (love you, Grandma), grab your mahjong board, and hit the town, dear. And of course, you can even carry a picture of yourself from 10 years ago in your wallet.

08

Sonny & Cher

Sonny & Cher

Ever wanted to dress like a diva and pretend you had the voice of a music icon? Sure, there's no shortage of music legends to choose from, but damn if Cher doesn't have some of the best looks to emulate. And though suit options are open for Sonny (just keep it snazzy), we recommend you incorporate that iconic mustache.

09

Fred & Wilma

Fred & Wilma

Ah, the Flinstones - what an iconic couple. Can we just talk about Wilma's 'fit for a second? That off-the-shoulder white mini dress must've been very en vogue in the Stone Age. Sure, you could go the easy route and buy the remade costume versions, but Wilma really only requires a white dress and a big pearl necklace. As for Fred's? We bet you could dye a pillowcase orange and be well on your way.

10

Addams Family

10

Did you know the Addams Family has been around since the 1930s? That means dressing up as a member of this family is practically tradition. Whether you go Morticia and Gomez, Wednesday and Pugsley, or honestly, one we see less, but stan more: Debbie and Fester, you can't go wrong.
