Here’s another round of couple costumes ideas, this time with a focus on the same gender. Whether you’re spending Halloween with your best friend or partner, here’s a few ideas for what to wear on The Big Night. If you don’t have time to put a costume together yourself, there’s still time to order from Buy Costumes (best costume retailer ever) and shipping is free on orders $60+.

For the Ladies

Daphne and Velma couple costume
Daphne and Velma: The more interesting half of the Scooby Doo team wear brightly colored outfits that you can probably find at your local thrift store. Notice how even with the huge, dorky glasses and sweater that Velma is still totally foxy?

Ginger and Mary Ann couple costume
Ginger and Mary Ann: Another classic duo with costumes that are probably already in your closet are the lovely and comedic ladies from Gilligan’s Island. You’ll need a long, clingy dress with big red hair and red gingham with dark pigtails.

Shining Twins couple costume
Shining Twins: The Grady Twins are unmistakable with their cult status, but surprisingly not a costume you see very often. Don matching blue dresses with a bit of splatter and you’ll be ready to play forever and ever.

Xena and Gabrielle couple costume
Xena and Gabrielle: This is a popular costumed duo at conventions, but you can also go the store bought route. The dynamic between the two women makes this a great buddy or couple costume.

Absolutely Fabulous couple costume
Absolutely Fabulous: The brash and hedonistic Patsy and Eddy are perfect costume choices for a Halloween party. The hair (blonde beehive and unruly red mane, respectively), fashion disaster wardrobe, and perpetual bottle of booze are good for a laugh, but the scathing one liners are what make these really fun costumes.

Siamese Twins couple costume
Siamese Twins: For the couple who simply can’t be apart, you can’t go wrong as conjoined twins. Sew together 2 skirts (for ease of movement) and start practicing your shambling.

Thelma and Louise couple costume
Thelma and Louise: These outlaws are clad in denim, sleeveless tops, huge curly auburn hair, neck and hair scarves, sunglasses and red lipstick. Here are some suggestions and photos from the movie that would help with developing your costumes.

For the Fellas

Batman and Robin couple costume
Batman and Robin: What a great team. Superhero costumes have been a hot choice for several years in a row, but Batman and Robin will never go out of style. And neither will the innuendos.

Jay and Silent Bob couple costume
Jay and Silent Bob: Except for Jay’s really long, stringy blonde hair, here’s another costume choice that you might have sitting in your closet. They’re the ultimate slackers so the costumes really take a back seat to the mannerisms and Jay’s one-liners.

Hot Fuzz couple costume
Hot Fuzz: Nicholas and Danny are the ultimate buddy cops, with an English twist. First order of business in these costumes is to fire your gun in the air and yell “Aaaaaaah!”

Ambiguously Gay Duo
Ambiguously Gay Duo: Spandex clad Ace and Gary are your ticket to non-stop double entendres. Actually, you might be surprised how many people made a go at this costume. If hits on flickr and Google are any indication of satisfaction, then this costume is a real winner.

Spy vs Spy couple costume
Spy vs Spy: Have fun pranking your spy nemesis all night! All black or white costumes are easy to assemble, so just make a posterboard cone for the mask and add an extra large brim to your hat. This would work just as well for women, too.

Siamese Twins couple costume
Siamese Twins: This costume works for guys too, but it might be a little harder to walk with a set of conjoined pants. Maybe try for joined-at-the-waist a la Stuck on You.

    365 Halloween Response: Great idea, but the large, bright heads seem to make for a difficult homemade costume. Here’s a good attempt: Bert and Ernie costume
