Everyone's gonna either be Harley Quinn or Eleven from "Stranger Things" this year. If you'd like to avoid being basic then you might want to check out this list of the coolest couples costumes for 2016.
Jim and Pam from “The Office”
Don’t just be Jim and Pam. No, that would be silly. Be Jim and Pam dressed up for the office Halloween party as three hole punch Jim and, well, Pam is just a cat.
Serena Williams and a Wimbledon Trophy
Lol. Can’t get over how awesome and clever this costume is. Like who thinks of being Serena and her trophy?! Brilliant people, I guess.
Michael Jackson (Squared)
Cause this is thriller, thriller night. But really, this costume is instantly recognizable and everyone loves Michael. Can’t go wrong with this one.
Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones”
While these two are clearly the most badass characters in the series, we’re pretty sure they’re related soooooo maybe not the best idea for a “couples” costume.
Got a friend who’s half decent with a makeup brush? Or maybe you’re not so bad yourself? Then dab on a few dots and lines and sh_t and get ready for the costume compliments to role in because these two seriously look so cool.
Ash and Pikachu
After all the craze with Pokemon Go, Ash and Pikachu are bound to be a hit at all the Halloween parties this year. (Party tip: throw poké balls at people and yell “gotta catch ’em all” in their faces. Everyone will LOVE you!)
Dancing Girl Emoji
If you’re not going to be the poop emoji, then the dancing twins are the next best thing. Only downside is you have to stay in this pose the entire night (OR ELSE NO CANDY FOR YOU).
Harry Potter and his Patronus
Everyone will think you’re just another basic deer, BUT THEN Harry will jump out of the shadows and yell Expecto Patronum at you and you’ll prance around the party in all your Patronus glory and reveal yourself to be Harry’s freaking stag. TAKE THAT DEER HATERS.
The Grady Twins from “The Shining”
If you dress up as these two spooky girls then you must, MUST ask everyone you meet to come play with you. Forever…and ever…and ever.
Regina George and Damian from Mean Girls
Feeling lazy this Halloween? Just get a couple of tank tops, cut some holes in them and voila—you’re a couple of Regina George’s admirers! (Just don’t forget to wear a colorful bra underneath.) Feel like putting in a little more effort into your costume? Tie a hoodie around your head, grab some shades and make a sign. Bam. You’re Damian.
Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone from “Anchorman”
Happen to have some stuffy suits lying around? Able to grow a sick ‘stache? Then THIS is the costume for you. Bonus: mix things up by going without pants (as Ron does), adding a little arm candy in the form of a small dog and rename him Baxter, OR do a gender swap and have a girl dress up as ron and the guy as Veronica. Brilliant, right?
Pigs in a blanket
Simple yet classy. Oink, oink.
Joffrey and Sansa from “Game of Thrones”
So being in a relationship on Game of Thrones kinda really sucks. Why, you ask? Because that means one of two things: you’re either in a horribly abusive relationship (like Sansa and Joffrey) or you’re about to die a most gruesome death. There’s simply no room for happy couples on this show.
Juno MacGuff and Paulie Bleeker from “Juno”
Stuff a pillow up your shirt and you’re good to go! But if you really wanna seal the deal, bring along a pregnancy test and a jug of orange juice. The only people who won’t get your costume are the ding dongs who haven’t seen Juno yet (in that case you’ll want to bring along a copy of the film and force them to watch it before allowing them to continue on with all the Halloween fun).
Steve Jobs and the spinning wheel of horror
Want a truly terrifying costume? Try the spinning wheel of horror that just about everyone has had the misfortune of watching spin and spin and spin across their screen as they pull their hairs out one by one.
Joyce Byers And The Inside Of Her House from “Stanger Things”
Apparently Eleven will be one of the most popular Halloween costumes this year, so why not dare to be different and dress up as crazy Joyce Byers and her crazy wall of Christmas lights? (Though, we can’t blame you if you want to rock a shaved head and stuff your face with some Eggos this Halloween…Eleven is the bee’s knees.)
Mary Poppins and Bert
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt have signed on for the Mary Poppins remake, which should be coming out in the next few years, so get ahead of the trend and dress up as Mary and Bert RIGHT NOW. So cool. So trendy. Love it.
Clever, creative, cute, sporty, and most importantly it includes donuts. You can never go wrong with donuts.
Because no one can’t get enough of Pokemon this year.
Buckbeak and Sirius Black
Love Harry Potter but want to be unique shining star that you are this Halloween? Then opt for the this feathery, tatted up duo. (RIP, Sirius.)
Alice in Wonderland and The White Rabbit
Follow this guy’s lead and spice up your Alice look with pair of raybans. The sneakers are also a nice touch.
Dubble Stuffed Oreos
Feeling sickly sweet? Then this is the costume for your and your beau. Just look at them, all cutesy and hugging. They’re friggin adorable.
