Are "Couples" Halloween Costumes Cute or Corny?

Are "Couples" Halloween Costumes Cute or Corny?

As a child, I was very into Halloween. So even now, I still get myself to a bar or party every Halloween, and I always dress up.

Some couples go their separate ways when dressing for Halloween, while other mates opt for couples Halloween costumes. If I happen to be with someone when Oct. 31 rolls around, I make it a point to plan our costumes so they match. One year, I was a bee and my boyfriend was a beekeeper (aww). What do you think: Is dressing up with your significant other cute or corny? Please share in the comments.

oh yeah, this year I was Dracula and my boyfriend was a ninja. Though I would have rather had matching costumes :-( Halloween isn't that big in Europe so we didn't really prepare for it much...

I think that would be so fun and cute! But what struck me as very odd in that website with the matching his and hers halloween costumes (the link in the article) was that all the guys' costumes were wacky and funky and fun, while most of the girls' costumes had the slutty-sexy look to them. Did anyone else notice/find that odd?? Since when did dressing up for halloween meant you'd be shopping at your local sex-shop?

I think it is up to the couple. Last year my boyfriend and I was snow white and prince charming, this year I was a cowgirl and he was a cholo. It all depends on the mood and what is trendy. Next year however I am going to be a mermaid and he will be my cast-a-way!

I think they can be cute if done right. I saw a lot of Flintstones characters this year, but that was about as original as it got.

I think they're adorable! There was a Mario & Luigi at the party I went to.

I really like the creative and original pairs, but not the ones that you buy together (the plug and socket like everyone else mentioned). I adore the bee/beekeeper idea, too cute!

I think it depends on what the matching costumes actually are.

I love matching costumes. Last year my husband and I were Shrek and Fiona. Super cheesy, but fun.

me and a past boyfriend went as fred flintstone and wilma one year and won a costume contest... we won $1000!! the next year, friends of mine went as pebbles and bambam... kind of cute. i've seen a lot that are adorable. but i don't like the sexual reference ones, those are kind of funny, but pretty tacky (ex. plug in/socket).

My aunt and uncle usually go as Cher and Sonny Bono (she's taller than he is) or Gomez and Morticia Addams. I think they're cute if they're done right. The last time I did that, my (now ex) husband was Eric Draven from The Crow and I went as Sara...

My husband & I like to match... Last year we were Mr. Clean (he's and a sexy housewife. This year we were going to be Daddy Warbucks & Annie but we ended up staying home....maybe next year... I think that if they are done right they can be really cool....

Totally cute, unless it's one of those lewd pre-fab joke costume sets. Plug and socket? No thanks.

I guess it depends on the couple. Some are just fantastic, then there are others where one is good and the other isn't. It probably comes down to whether you like them both or not! :D

Last year, my boyfriend and I went as Winston and Julia from the book 1984. NO ONE got it. But it's still my favorite costume memory. I think it's definetely corny, but it was something I had to do at least once. And am I being too sensitive if I'm slightly offended by the male doctor-woman nurse combo in the pic? Just slightly, but still.

i saw a couple at a party who were the green team from "Legends of the Hidden Temple". That was badass. At the same party, my friend's girlfriend and his roommate were a nurse and doctor, so that was hilarious. (the friend was a very convincing han solo) it depends on the costume, seeing a princess and prince or a ball and chain or something cheesy like that i'd just have to make fun of
