The Big 3 in Couples Costumes
In every relationship, there’s a handful of important questions that are tough to ask, but must be talked about. Do you love me? Want to move in together? Am I fat? This month, you have to ask one very seasonal, but important question. Are we getting couple costumes or is it too soon? And if that answer is a yes, there’s a follow up question. What are we going to be?
Some may be thinking, three weeks is too early to plan costumes. But when you are in a relationship three weeks, early may actually mean you’re already late. Individual costumes can be thrown together last minute, but with couples, you have double the planning to worry about. You don’t want to battle it out with hundreds of last minute couples at Party City, fighting over the last remaining costumes. By planning now, you’ll be on track for a stress free Halloween weekend. Plus, now all your options are available in a variety of colors and sizes.
So now the question is, what should you and your partner be? From creating your own ensemble, to buying it at the store, there are endless options. Overall, there seems to be a trend in the couple costume world. These trends stem from The Big 3.
The Big 3 include …
The Kinky Couple
This duo wants to skip the party and head straight to the bedroom. Their game plan is to find the perfect couple costumes to use for role play after the party. These are your sexy nurses and doctors, playboys and bunnies, and much more naughty combinations.
The Classy Couple
These cute couples hope to win best dressed in the costume contest. They are your princes and princesses, Barbies and Kens, and anything else that makes you aw out loud. Don’t try to top this couple because they’ve probably had their costumes picked out since August.
The Funny Couple
These ride or dies will be the life of the party. These are your two peas in a pod, Catdog, and all things outside the box. These couple have a great sense of humor and are not afraid to embarrass themselves to get a good laugh.
Whichever you choose, make sure you and your partner rock it! A ton of photos will be taken Halloween weekend, so do not show up to a party looking slum. I also suggest having more than one couple costume. You do not want to show up to different parties in the same costume. So put in the extra effort and think of a few ideas. You have time now, so do not put it off until last minute. If you do, you will end up being the most basic couple at the party. And no one wants to be basic.
