Couple dressed as slices of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Best Soap-and-Loofah Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as a soap and loofah.

4.7 stars, 1,153 reviews
“We loved these costumes! They fit well and were a hit at the party! My husband is six-foot-five, and I am five-five. The loofah was a bit loose but didn’t require any adjustments. The Velcro attachments for the balloons kept falling off, but that was minor to us.”

Best Ghost Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as ghostly figures.

4.5 stars, 83 reviews
“This is an absolutely beautiful costume! Well worth the price! I am usually a size six in dresses and ordered the small … so glad I did because it fits like a glove! It also includes a petticoat underneath that is pretty good quality. The small details of the dress really make it beautiful, like the bows and the lace and trim. I ordered this dress for Halloween (I am going as Marie Antoinette’s ghost, and my boyfriend as her executioner, Henri Sanson), and this dress is absolutely perfect!”

4.1 stars, 43 reviews
“We won first place in a costume contest. The costume is above average quality and comes with everything except white makeup and shoes. I’m six-foot-two, 235 pounds, and it fit well. Hat fit easily on my big noodle. Excellent costume choice.”

Best Witch-and-Wizard Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as a witch and wizard.

4.6 stars, 110 reviews
“I LOVE this costume, and so does everyone else! I have received more compliments on this than any costume I’ve ever had. I also purchased a hoop skirt to wear with it, but it can be worn either way. I’m only five-foot-two, but with a boot with a short(ish) heel, it was perfect. Better with the hoop as far as not tripping over it, but it still worked.”

$50, Amazon

4.3 stars, 125 reviews
“This is a great costume. It looked good and the quality was excellent. I actually got quite a few comments on the robe, and someone even mentioned that it must have been expensive because of how well-made it appeared and felt. My ONLY complaint is that the robe was a little short on me. I am six-foot-one, and it came a few inches above my ankles. Definitely not a problem.”

Best Woodland-Creatures Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as squirrels.

4.7 stars, 162 reviews
“Perfect lazy Halloween costume. Please note that the sizing is height only—this is essentially a one-size-fits-all product. I was intimidated by that because I’m thicker, so I was worried all the extra fabric still wouldn’t be enough to accommodate my size. I fit into it with room to spare, and it wasn’t tight or constricting at all. Per the recommendations, I chose medium since I’m five-foot-five. All in all, it was fun to wear, and I liked it.”

BUY: Flying Squirrel Animal Costume
$30, Amazon

4.0 stars, 182 reviews
“I love this. I love it so much. This is beautiful. I have no job, and I spent $60 on this squirrel costume. I wore it to a Harry Potter–themed party. I’m wearing it on Halloween. There’s never a bad time to wear it.”

Best Skeleton Costume

Couple dressed skeletons.

4.6 stars, 648 reviews
“I purchased this costume to wear for Halloween this year, and I am so pleased! It’s sexy without being over-the-top, kind of a subtle sexiness. And it’s comfortable! You will definitely want black undies with this because you can see light colors through it. I’m five-foot-five and 146 pounds, and I wear a size M top and eight in bottoms, and the medium fit me very well!”

BUY: Glow in the Dark Skeleton Catsuit
$29, Amazon

4.3 stars, 1,297 reviews
“This is just what I needed to go on a quick trip out the country; me and my girlfriend shared one suitcase. I got everything in my cube and didn’t take up all of the suitcase. This is a must have for every family. Glad I stumbled upon it looking for luggage. Material was a little thin but it served its purpose for the low, low price.”

Best Pirate Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as pirates.

4.2 stars, 863 reviews
“Loved how comfortable this costume was! I’m a bigger girl at five-foot-nine and 200 pounds. I typically am a size 14/16. I was concerned about the length because I’m taller than average, but the California Costumes women’s ruffled petticoat perfectly helped to provide a little more length. I’m very happy I went with this costume.”

BUY: Women’s Swashbuckler Pirate Costume
$25, Amazon

4.2 stars, 755 reviews
“A lot of your opinion on this costume may come down to what you expect to get for $25. I found the exact same costume in some local party/costume shops for $40-plus, so I was extremely happy with this for $25. Yes, the ‘belt buckle’ is a cheap piece of plastic, as are the ‘boot flaps,’ but the puffy shirt and pants, along with the gauntlets, were a great base for my costume and allowed me to accentuate with my own touches. I bought this for Pirate Night on a Disney Cruise, so it really was meant for a onetime use, but I still have it just in case. Overall, I was more than happy with the costume. For what I needed, it was more than adequate and a good value.”

$23, Amazon

Best Bacon-and-Eggs Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed a slice of bacon and eggs.

4.2 stars, 232 reviews
“Got to love a couple’s costume that is inexpensive and fun to take the kids trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhood. Received a lot of compliments and chuckles. Next year, we’ll buy a sombrero to go with the eggs and be ‘huevos rancheros’ and nunchucks and a karate belt for the bacon and go as ‘pork chop,’ or if cold outside, wrap a blanket around shoulders and call it ‘pigs in a blanket.’”

Best Beekeeper-and-Bee Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed a bee and a beekeeper.

4.3 stars, 378 reviews
“I bought this for my brother as a joke because he’s a bee nerd; he loves bees so much. He got really excited and wore it all day, including at Christmas dinner, which made our mom mad. I have no idea if it’ll keep you safe around bees, but it does keep you safe from getting turkey thrown at your face!”

$27, Amazon

4.3 stars, 105 reviews
“This costume was purchased for my 88-year-old mother to wear to a Halloween party. She’s about five feet tall and weighs 88 pounds—so it is large on her, making it look pretty cute. The wings and stinger add to the fun. Adding a black, long-sleeve turtleneck, black tights, and gloves completes the outfit. My 92-year-old father dressed in the beekeeper costume—they were a real hit at the party!”

BUY: Women’s Bumble Bee Costume
$13, Amazon

Best Crayon Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as crayons.

4.3 stars, 131 reviews
“I purchased this to wear at the office for Halloween. I work for a very creative company, so I didn’t think it would really be noticed. I was surprised at all of the comments I received. It really did look cute. Next year, the people I work with are going to come as crayons as well … we will all be a different color … and the costume is so reasonable …. and made well.”

Best Gorilla-and-Banana Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as a banana and gorilla.

4.3 stars, 674 reviews
“I bought five of these costumes for a Halloween party for five guys of various sizes. Some at five-foot-eight and a bit huskier, and me being six-foot-three and 185 pounds. Everyone loved them, and we won best costume award. To stuff them, all we did was put a T-shirt in the bottom to weigh them down and a plastic ShopRite bag at the top to hold them up. Easy peasy!”

BUY: Rasta Imposta Lightweight Banana Costume
$16, Amazon

4.1 stars, 398 reviews
“For some reason, this is my third gorilla suit, and this one is by far the best quality. The mask looks great and has big enough eye and nose holes for adequate ventilation. The gloves look great with elongated fingers and allow a little dexterity. The foot covers are a nice plus and really tie the suit together. One thing to note: I’m only five-foot-nine, and the suit is almost too short, so taller folks might need to wear black socks. This suit is incredibly hot. It will keep you warm at football games in freezing weather, but if it’s over 60 and you plan on wearing it for an extended period of time, stay hydrated.”

Best Pope-and-Nun Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed a pope and nun.

4.5 stars, 88 reviews
“I bought this costume for a large (several hundred) costume party in Hong Kong. EVERYBODY wanted their picture taken with the pope! From the minute I walked in, people were talking. I had so many picture requests that I thought about charging $5. After the party, we hit some bars in Wan Chai with similar results. The costume is simple but well-made and easy to get in or out of. It was a bit wrinkled when it arrived, so I took it to the cleaners to be pressed, and it came back perfect. If you want to get a good laugh out of people, I highly recommend this costume.”

BUY: California Costumes Men’s The Pope His Divine Holiness
$31, Amazon

4.4 stars, 305 reviews
“I wore this costume to a Halloween party this year, and EVERYONE LOVED IT!!! People wanted their pictures taken with me!!! It was hilarious! I didn’t use the silly phrases that come with this costume, which you can place (Velcro) on the white crown piece though; that’s just not my style. My boyfriend wore the Wandering Gunman costume, and I was obviously Sister Sarah (re the Clint Eastwood Fistful of Dollars series). That being said, this costume is easy to put on. You can wear street clothes underneath (I wore all black under mine) and not be overheated with the costume over it because it is very thin fabric.”

Best Wine-and-Cheese Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as wine and cheese.

4.0 stars, 93 reviews
“My mom and I wore these in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, for Halloween, and we were a hit. She added a cheese-head hat and put iron-on words of ‘who cut the cheese’ on the back. People stopped us on the streets to take pictures with us.”

Best Wolf-and-Little Red Riding Hood Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed as wolf and Little Red Riding Hood.

4.4 stars, 248 reviews
“I was so pleasantly surprised by this costume! I ordered it a couple months ahead of time, assuming I would probably have to send this one back for something else … like you usually do with costumes ordered online. But this one is perfect! It arrived promptly, and fits me very well. I’m an average size and height woman (five-foot-seven, size six), and I ordered the medium, which often can be too big or too small, but this was just right. The material is decent quality, doesn’t look cheap or Halloween-store-like; I love that it’s long and dramatic, and comes with the checkered scarf that you can turn any basket into one suitable for the costume. Can’t wait to wear it!!”

$32, Amazon

4.4 stars, 112 reviews
“My wife was Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween, so logically I was the big bad wolf … the grandma outfit was a great touch, and we were a big hit at this year’s Halloween party. Everything fit well, I am five-foot-nine, and heavy at 200 pounds, and had no issues with it being too tight.”

$32, Amazon

Best ’70s Couple’s Costumes

Couple dressed in '70s clothes.

4.3 stars, 157 reviews
“I’m six feet tall and 230 pounds … Not a huge belly, but I do have a belly (frown). Anyway, I ordered an extra large, and it fits perfect. The pants have an elastic waistband, which is totally cool. I ordered a brown Afro wig to go with it. Overall, this is a great product. The material it great—it doesn’t feel cheap. Order it and you will be happy.”

BUY: California Costumes Men’s Disco Sleaze Ball Costume
$40, Amazon

4.4 stars, 209 reviews
“OMG, my husband and I won the contest. He wore the matching men’s disco shirt.
I only had one complaint with the jumper, the V-cut is so low that all of my ‘Cleveland’ was hanging out. So I just wore a cover-up. Jumper still a winner with me!”
