Two of our fancy dress costume ideas for couples

Looking for a great couple’s costume? You’re in the right place!

Whether you’re off to a fancy dress party or celebrating Halloween, we’ve got a useful list of brilliant his and hers fancy dress ideas for you and your partner to try.

  1. Beauty and the Beast

Is there a more iconic Disney couple? You’re never too old for Disney and you’ll definitely make a fairytale entrance dressed as Beauty and the Beast!

Dress your other half in this magnificent Beast outfit, then add a half-up, half-down hair do and red lipstick to this Belle costume to complete your transformation!

2. Anna & Olaf

Do you wanna build a snowman? With this cheeky little Olaf costume, you won’t have to! Your man will have a great evening doing whatever snow does in summer (or having a few drinks, whichever works), while you get to look gorgeous in this lovely Anna princess dress, based on her outfit in Frozen 2.

Frozen fever shows no sign of slowing down, so this is a theme your fellow guests will love!

3. Cinderella & Prince Charming

Looking for something straight out of a fairytale? It doesn’t get much better than Cinderella and Prince Charming!

This is a great combination if you want to stay with a Disney theme, but you’re with a guy who’s not keen on wearing anything too silly. You’ll both look equally fabulous in this Cinderella ball gown and smart Prince Charming outfit.

4. Tiger King & Queen

Although Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic couldn’t be much further from a loving couple, we reckon that this contentious couple of cat lovers would be an excellent costume for Halloween or any silly parties. Grab a Cat Queen costume for Carole and a convict outfit for Joe Exotic.

5. Alice & The Mad Hatter

Whether you’re having a tea party or celebrating yet another un-birthday, Alice and the Mad Hatter are a great match for your fancy dress party.

You get to look elegant in a lovely blue and white ensemble, plus you get to make loads of jokes about how ‘mad’ your other half is, and that’s lots of fun for everyone!

6. Mary Poppins & Bert

Let’s switch to a live action Disney couple for a minute and take a look at Mary Poppins and Bert! This authentic costume will transform you into the original supernanny, while the guys get to celebrate Bert in his chimney sweep getup.

7.  Day of the Dead

 

An increasingly popular choice for Halloween, take a cue from the Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebration! Our deluxe Day of the Dead costumes are intricately patterned, combining the darkness of skulls and bones with bright beautiful flowers and swirls. Get the men’s suit coat set and this gorgeous Senorita costume to go with it.

8. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

Although we’re all over this as a couple’s costumes, you could add the kids into the mix too – bring a whole family of Beetlejuices to the party! The male Beetlejuice costume is an accurate representation of the ghost with the most, while the women’s version is a slightly adjusted version, making it feminine and much more fun to wear. She can also skip the receding hairline wig, but don’t forget the white face paint with black eyes.

9. Elastigirl & Mr Incredible

An ordinary married couple by day, world-saving superheroes by night, Mr Incredible and Elastigirl make the ultimate superhero costume for two!

Remember though, no capes!

10. Dumbledore and McGonagall

For the Harry Potter lovers among us who don’t want to dress like teenagers, Hogwarts’ teachers are a perfect solution. Here we’ve teamed up two of Hogwarts’ finest educators – the wise Albus Dumbledore with transfiguration professor – and sometimes cat – Professor Minerva McGonagall. Don’t forget your magic wands!

11. Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy

Since 2016’s Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn has become one of the most popular women’s fancy dress costumes in the country, but pairing her up with the Joker feels a little icky after Birds of Prey. Enter, the femme fatale Poison Ivy, long time girlfriend of Harley Quinn – together they create one hell of an evil power couple!

12. Batman & Catwoman

The iconic hero/villain duo whose romance was brought to the big screen in The Dark Knight Rises, this is one hot couple of costumes! The deluxe Batman costume comes with a padded chest, detachable cape and mask, while the Catwoman deluxe costume is – of course – a cat suit with boot toppers, belt, gloves, eye mask and cat ears!

This super cute couples costume shows the world that you’ve chosen the love of your life! Perfect for geeky couples, one dresses as Ash Ketchum while the other becomes everyone’s favourite Pokémon, Pikachu!

This couples’ costume is the very best!

14. Dorothy & Scarecrow

If trying to decide what to wear has left you and your partner feeling like you’re not in Kansas anymore, how about going for a Wizard of Oz theme? Dorothy and her old pal the Scarecrow are a great choice!

And, if your other half doesn’t fancy dressing up as a Scarecrow, how about a Tin Man instead?
