Trick or treat for 2: Couples costumes under $100
If one costume is fun, two must be even better. If you are wanting to go to a Halloween party or simply just dress up as a duo this year, here are our favorite couples costumes for Halloween 2015 — all under $100.
1. A celebrity couple:
The list of celeb partners is endless. Make it a romantic couple, like Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, or a cartoon couple, like Popeye and Olive Oil. Superman and Lois Lane are a given, but how about Sterling and Lana Kane from “Archer” or Fry and Leela from “Futurama?”
2. Food inspired:
People aren’t the only things that go great as a pair. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a can of Coke and Diet Coke, cookies and milk or a hot dog with a bottle of ketchup are also excellent matches.
Or go for the costume that everyone will love. Well, everyone except vegetarians. Dress up as two matching pieces of bacon. Find these and more food couples costumes at CostumeExpress.com and earn 4% Cash Back!
3. Pick an era or theme:
You don’t have to dress up as a specific couple, though. Pick any theme that you would do solo and double it up as a team. Steampunk and Day of the Dead are big this year. So are mermaids. So how about a mermaid and a sailor or Poseidon? Find an adult mermaid costume at Target.com. Women’s Mermaid Deep Sea Siren Costume, $79.99 (plus Cash Back), Target.com,
4. Movie couples:
For inspiration for your couples costume, you don’t need to look any further than the silver screen. Halloweencostumes.com has couples costumes inspired by the “Hunger Games,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers” and more! They make it easy to pair costumes while allowing for individual sizing.

5. Take a new spin on an old classic:
Put your unique twist on an otherwise regular couple costume. Do Goldilocks and a bear, but steampunk style or as zombies. Turn superheroes into vampires, cartoons into monsters or place celebrities in a different era. How would Marilyn Monroe look as a hippie? Let your imagination go wild.
