Going to a fancy dress party as a couple is great fun! Certain dress up costumes work much better as a pair than on their own, such as the famous two person horse. And there's loads more ways for the two of you to get creative...
Why not pick a famous couple? People will have great fun trying to guess who you are. All you have to do is mimic the style of your favourite celebrity duo!
- JFK and Jackie O
- Popeye and Olive
- Fred and Wilma Flintstone
- Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley
- John Lennon and Yoko Ono
- Superman and Lois Lane
- Ken and Barbie
- Bill and Hilary Clinton
- Cleopatra and Anthony
- Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
- Adam and Eve
- The Queen and Prince Philip
- Homer and Marge Simpson
- Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love
You can also pick a theme like American Indians, cops and robbers, fruit and veg... or a Japanese theme where you go as a samurai and a geisha. The list of possibilities really is endless. Some of the wackier ideas include canned food, dogs and even trees!
Whatever you decide, have a go at making the costumes yourself. It's all part of the fun! You don't need to be an artist or a designer to throw together a great costumer - and the best part is that you can be sure no one else will arrive in the same outfit as you.
Couple costumes that are relatively easy to make include Mr and Mrs Incredible and a witch and warlock.
