Last-Minute DIY Halloween Couples Costumes

Halloween 2023 is almost here, and I know I’m still googling family costumes. Here are some easy Halloween Couples Costumes  that I was able to put together in about 1 to 2 hours depending on what you have at home. These couples costumes should hopefully be easy on the budget, too.

Last-Minute Halloween Couples Costumes

Here are some couples costumes to dress up as for Halloween this year If this year has been a dumpster fire for you, well, I made a costume for that, too. But costumes don’t have to be complicated, and you can throw together a couples costume for Halloween in a pinch that may just win you some awards. Costumes aren’t your thing? Then enjoy these 2022 Halloween memes!

Ted Lasso Couples Costume

One of my favorite TV shows is Ted Lasso, and this couples costume is really easy. If you have any sort of blue jacket or sweatshirt and bottoms, then you can add red stripes for more authenticity with duck tape. I printed out some AFC Richmond logos and just taped them on. I had a whistle at home, grabbed some sunnies, and bought a .99 mustache at Walmart. 

My husband and I were Ted Lasso and Coach Beard. You could also do Jamie Tart, Rebecca, or Keeley really easily, too!

Stranger Things Eddie and Chrissy Costume

If you’ve seen Stranger Things, then you know Eddie and Chrissy were done dirty. I was lazy, so I grabbed this Chrissy costume from Party City, but you could also get a green pleated skirt and print out a Hawkins High School logo on a shirt and throw on a white sweater. She also wears a green scrunchie in her hair. 

For Eddie, the key is a Hellfire Club t-shirt that I found at Target in the women’s section. My husband also wore one of my jean jackets. The wig was $5.99 at Walmart. I always try to buy my wigs at Walmart, because they’re inexpensive. Then just get into character! This Stranger Things 4 couples costume is one of my favorites!

Stranger Things is still super popular and was even a house theme at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal.

McDonalds Boo Bucket Costumes

So this costume is dedicated to the Boo Buckets coming back to McDonalds in 2022! This costume is really easy. We just took two pieces of poster boards and taped them to make a cylinder. Before you tape, make sure to draw your face. 

McGhost and McPumpkin are probably the easiest faces to draw, but I have a special place in my heart for McWitch. For the McBoo “lid”, we just took off the piece on the bucket and taped it to a backwards hat. You’ll need strong tape, like packing tape.

Since I didn’t have an actual McWitch bucket, we drew a handle and hat the size of the McBoo lid. You can either hold on to the bottom of the “bucket” to keep it up or you can make handles out of poster board and take them on the inside to hold.

Tiger King Couples Costume

Tiger King Couples Costume

Oh yes, a Carole Baskin costume and a Joe Exotic costume all in one. Do these two ever go out of style? Maybe they hate each other in real life, but you cool cats and kittens can throw this together easily. 

I bought a mullet wig and a blonde wig at Walmart for $5.99 each. I already had a cheetah print shirt and paired it with jeans. To make a flower crown, they had wire garland also at Walmart and I hot glued little purple flowers around it, then just tied the garland after I measured it on my head. It took me a total of 10 minutes. You can find fake flowers at any craft store.

For Joe Exotic, we had an old plaid shirt at home, so I just cut off the sleeves. My husband had a little bit of stubble on his face, so I used brown eyeliner to complete the look. Then he used flimsy key rings that you get from the car dealership and stuck them on his ear for earrings. He wasn’t about to commit to having his ears pierced. 

Find a fake Tiger, get an attitude, and voila, Tiger King costume. And check here if you need Joe Exotic quotes about Carole Baskin for your Instagram captions.

Super Mario Bros Couples Costume

Super Mario Bros Couples Costume

Who doesn’t love the Super Mario Bros – Mario and Luigi? This couples costume will be even more popular in 2023 because of the Super Mario Bros Movie. Grab a red and green shirt, long-sleeved or short-sleeved depending on the weather where you live. If you have overalls, great. If not, you can also use jeans or tutus and then add suspenders (real ones or make them out of cloth for the look).

We just used yellow paper to add buttons and make stars.  I found white gloves at Party City for $2.99. They had fake mustaches at Walmart for $.99 or else just use eyeliner to draw them on your face. Any little detail you can add sells the costume even more. But it doesn’t have to be expensive. Use paper!

Squid Game Couples Costumes

This easy DIY Squid Game Costume is simple to turn into a couples costume. You can add a player or you can add another staff character with a different shape. A quick trip to Walmart should get you all the supplies you need.

Yzma and Kuzco

If you haven’t seen the Emperor’s New Groove, you’re missing out. Yzma and Kuzco are enemies, but my favorites!

Chip and Joanna Gaines Costume

I quickly threw together a Chip and Joanna Gaines costume for Bus Stop Costumes with my daughter, but you can easily turn this into a couples costume. Grab some jeans, boots, and a flannel or denim shirt for Chip or JoJo. Grab a tool belt and some tools, say “shiplap” and “are y’all ready to see your Fixer Upper” a lot, and you’re golden.

Couples Costumes You Can Purchase

Here are some honorable mentions for couples costumes that you can just buy when you’re short on time. You can also borrow costumes from friends. That has really helped us in a pinch.

Willy Wonka and Oompa Loompa 

We borrowed these costumes from a friend, and they were awesome!

Barbie and Ken

I have no doubt Barbie and Ken will be the most popular Couples Halloween Costume in 2023. This may be my favorite look from the Barbie movie.
