For this list, I decided to pick more mainstream characters that normies would definitely know. So don’t expect Naofumi and Raphtalia, or Sora and Kairi on this list…my other article about couples cosplay ideas is more for Weebs who love Anime and video games.
NOTE: If you haven’t played or watched any of these series, there could be potential storyline spoilers for you. You’ve been warned!
COVID-19 DISCLAIMER: During this time, it’s likely advised in your area to not hold any social gatherings. This would include cosplay gatherings and cosplay photoshoots. This post is only meant to give you Halloween costume ideas for groups if/when it’s safe to do so. You should always follow health guidelines and advice by your local health authority. Happy cosplaying and stay safe.
With that out of the way, let’s get started!
1. Hermoine Granger and Ginny Weasley
Harry Potter will always be a popular series, so this is the perfect Halloween costume ideas for couples. Wizardry and magical stuff is the perfect theme for this holiday. I suggest going for Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. But you can also opt for Harry and Ginny.
2. Deadpool and Deadpool Lady (Badass Halloween Costume Ideas)
Deadpool may get some flack because the cosplay is so overdone, but who cares? Deadpool is not your typical Marvel hero, and that’s what makes him and Deadpool lady so special. If you live in a colder climate, then cosplaying the two will be nice and comfortable!
3. Waldo and Wenda Cutest Halloween Costume Ideas
Waldo and Wenda are the perfect Halloween costume ideas for couples. They’re one of the most recognizable characters and incredibly easy to pull off. All you need is a red and white hat and sweater! The only downside is if you’re dressing up as Waldo or Wenda, you’ll be bombarded with people asking for your photos. It’s like that for every Waldo/Wenda cosplayer at conventions, so expect the same if you go trick-or-treating or to a Halloween party!
4. Ghostbusters (Comfortable Halloween Costume Ideas)
If you live in a cold climate like I do, then wearing the bulky Ghostbusters costume is the perfect choice! I’d say you’d make a cute couple if you and your partner wear the Ghostbusters uniform!
5. Harley Quinn and Joker (or Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy)
Harley Quinn may be the most overdone cosplay of all time, but for good reason. She is an awesome villain that resonates with DC fans. With Joker, you’d make for an awesome power couple being the most dysfunctional relationship in the fictional universe. And since they’re both popular characters, you’ll have no problems meeting other cosplayers at a con as well.
6. South Park – Terrance and Phillip
One of the longest adult cartoons still going, South Park would be a unique choice for a Halloween costume ideas for couples. I suggest cosplaying Terrance and Philip!
7. Aladdin and Jasmine (Epic Disney Halloween Costume Ideas)
Aladdin is one of the best Disney movies out there, and Aladdin and Jasmine is a well-known Disney couple. With Aladdin’s unique outfit and Jasmine’s beautiful-looking dress, these two area great choice for Halloween costume ideas for couples!
8. Fred Flintstone and Wilma (Classic Halloween Costume Ideas)
Yabba Dabba Doo! I think most of us grew up watching The Flintstones. I don’t know about you, but if I saw a couple cosplaying Fred and Wilma at a Halloween party, I’d be so hyped!
9. Jessie and James
If you don’t know Jessie and James from the Pokemon Anime, you had no childhood! The Team Rocket duo is out to protect the world from devastation…and to capture Pikachu. I highly recommend cosplaying Jessie and James because they make a great cosplay couple.
10. Ash and Misty
While it’s never confirmed in the Pokémon Anime that Ash and Misty liked each other, it’s somewhat implied that they did have feelings of some sort. In any case, it’s totally acceptable to cosplay the two together as a couple. So go ahead and dress up together as the most iconic characters of Pokemon! It’s a bonus that Ash and Misty are both easy cosplays to do. Be sure to bring a Pikachu and Togepi with you.
11. Panty and Stocking (Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas)
Oh boy! This show is pretty outrageous, sort of like FLCL (that show was made by the same producers). While Panty and Stocking could be a stretch as a magical girl, they both technically transform when on their demon hunting duties. They’re both really easy to cosplay. Basically a tank top with a heart across your chest, and a short mini skirt and high heels and wig. And a love-themed gun as a prop!
12. Naruto and Hinata (Iconic Anime Halloween Costume Ideas)
Who doesn’t love Naruto? It’s one of the most successful Shonen Anime of all time. And what better couple to cosplay than Naruto and Hinata? Both are great characters in their own way, so whether you two are cosplaying at a convention or for a photoshoot, you’ll definitely lots of fans admiring you guys when together!
13. Superman and Supergirl
Superman and Supergirl already look good on their own, so why not cosplay them together to make a power couple? It would be a lot of fun.
14. Gerald and Phoebe from Hey Arnold!
If you grew up in the 90s, you probably have watched Hey Arnold! While it may be obscure to some people, cosplaying from this series will definitely get you a lot of happy reactions from people who know about this series. You can either go for Gerald and Phoebe, or Arnold and Helga.
15. Krillen (or Android 17) and Android 18
(Mostly) everyone has heard of Dragon Ball Z. But some do not know the strangest couple in the series: Krillen and Android 18! Halloween is the perfect time for you and your partner to cosplay the two. They’re really easy to cosplay, so Halloween is a good time to do so. If you don’t want to be Krillen, then you can swap him for Android 17 instead.
16. Peter Parker and Mary Jane
You can go with Spider-Man and Mary Jane. But I think it’s more fitting (and easier) to dress up at Peter Parker instead. Either way, these two are an awesome Halloween costume ideas for couples!
17. Sailor Moon – Usagi and Mamoru (Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask), Haruka and Michiru
When we think of Sailor Moon, we think of the main character Usagi and her love interest, Tuxedo Mask? But did you know there are also cosplay lesbian and gay couples in this series? One of them is Haruka and Michiru! They’re both easy to cosplay; you just need the matching sailor scout outfit.
18. My Hero Academia
I’d say My Hero Academia (or Boku No Hero) is mainstream enough these days to cosplay during Halloween. Maybe not everyone knows who Deku is, but the series is popular enough to be mass-produced by cosplay stores. So cosplaying from MHA will definitely be cheaper, especially if you opt for the UA high school uniforms.
Some MHA couples ideas:
- Deku and Ochaco
- Bakugou and Todoroki
- Ochaco and Froppy
19. Mario and Luigi
Who doesn’t love Super Mario Bros? With the cute overalls and moustache, cosplaying the Mario Bros is a great choice for you and your partner!
20. Homer and Marge
If you and your partner want to stand out during Halloween, then go for Homer and Marge Simpson! The show may have peaked a long time ago, but everyone surely knows who those two are. We still fond memories of The Simpsons!
There’s no specific character that you can or cannot cosplay during Halloween. Any character will do, and I feel like Steampunk fits the fall Halloween vibe perfectly.
22. Woody and Jessie
Probably the most notable Disney film from Pixar, Toy Story is a classic movie that’s known by many. Woody and Jessie is a cute cowboy/girl couple worth cosplaying!
23. The Incredibles
The Incredibles is another series that’s easy to cosplay from. All you need is their outfit and cape and you’re good to go. One of you can be Mr. Incredible, while the other can be Elastigirl!
24. Star Wars
Star Wars is just awesome, especially during Halloween. While the most recent films haven’t been lived up to the hype, the series is still a timeless classic and a great choice during this occasion. May the force be with you!
25. Peanut Butter and Jelly! (Yummiest Halloween Costume Ideas For Couples)
Okay I couldn’t find a picture of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich costume that I could use. So I just used regular peanut butter and jelly instead. But I had to include this one because it’s so awesome. Who doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? 🙂
