Just looking for suggestions for Halloween Costumes for Couples. (Cant believe Halloween is about a month away!!!) We are trying to think of a more creative costume than the typical “ball & chain”, “salt & pepper” & “Wilma & Fred” costumes (not that there is anything wrong with those, they’re adorable). Any Suggestions would be helpful!! I’d also love to see pictures of any cute costumes if anyone wants to share them with the Hive!!

A few that we’ve done:
Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe (might not work for Boston though)
Columbia and Eddie from the Rocky Horror Picture Show (you could also do Magenta/Riff Raff or Brad/Janet)
There’s probably going to be a lot of Bill and Sookies this year but that’s another idea.
We’re going out with my sister and her boyfriend this year and doing a group costume for once – I am so excited :o)

We did the Justin Timberlake D**k in a box and the girl with the red robe on (Maya Rudolph. I was worried no one would get it, but EVERYone got it and thought it was hilarious.

I did M&M out of felt one year. Cut holes for our eyes and enlarged the white m for the center. He was yellow (the one w/ the nut) and I was green (the one with the eye lashes). Of course, I made a red one too. We stuck our arms out openings that I left.
There were kids @ the Halloween party we went to and they loved it! Ironically, the next year when we did Dr. Suess’ Thing One and Thing Two (red sweat shirts, blue metallic wigs, felt with black puffy paint for the numbers), the dids didn’t know what we were.
At one point, I wanted to do Lance Armstrong & Sheryl Crow, but that’s now dated.

@HugsKisses: it’s an easy costume too. I just got the generic MM costume (the white dress) and FI wore baseball pants and I made the number for a blank jersey that he already had. Add yankee hat, and done.

TRUE BLOOD!!! Bill and Sookie are the main characters. Such a great show- if you’re not put off by scary vampires then you must go rent Season 1 immediately! 🙂

Meowkers I was wondering the same thing! LOL

@ Meowkers – Bill and Sookie from True Blood.
We’ve gone as Bonnie and Clyde before if that helps.
We’re tossing around being insane clowns, gladiator/goddess, and rock stars (don’t know why but I really want to dress like Freddie Mercury. I’m trying to convince him to dress like David Bowie.)
Oh, and on a side note, I bet there will be a lot of Jon and Kates out there. I would have a blast wearing that wig!

haha thanks for filling me in ladies. Yeah I’m just not at all into the teen vampire thing. I did all that with Buffy the Vampire Slayer so I’m just way over it. But yeah all those vampire shows/movies are really big right now.
