Coming up with costume ideas that match you as a couple can be rather tricky. Yet, with a little bit of that extra fun spirit for the holiday you and your significant other can become the best outfitted two on the block. It does not matter what kind of couple you are there are always some fun things to do that will make your holiday well above average.
Costuming is important for fully participating in the holiday. While you and your significant other may be breaking new ground, having fun and going a little overboard is exactly what the night is about.
You can always go with the vampire and victim scene, which is certainly a classic. If you want to go beyond a classic then you may want to let your hair down and take a few risks that will be heavily rewarded through the evening.
The choice of costume should be in accordance with the planned events for the night. A party that is strictly for grown ups may give you more leeway than an evening of passing out candy or walking the kids around town. Sometimes it is better to know what the night will be about before you make your final selection.
The spirit of the night can be expressed in any way that the two of you see fit. Remember that you will be dressing as a pair so you will need to be acting as a pair to pull it off. There is much more to a costume than just the make up and wig. You are both taking on a persona. If there is something that one of you is really uncomfortable with then it is best to find an alternative plan.
The movies are always a good source for ideas. Yet sometimes the best costumes are really those that do not emulate anyone specific. Flappers, gangsters, and period clothing can often make wonderful ideas for a pair. Adults can just as easily find cartoon characters that create new roles for each individual.
Any ideas for Halloween should be appropriate attire for the surroundings, provide adequate warmth when needed, and should encourage both of you to open up into a little bit of play acting. Many couples find that by dressing up as a pair they are able to have a lot of play acting fun together even when that was not the intention. Dare to be different for one night a year. You never know where it might lead.
