Ideas for fancy dress costumes for couples famous from TV and movies

Going out for a night to a fancy dress party's always fun but it's always better when you're dressed as a celeb. Fancy dress costumes for couples famous from TV, sports and movies might set you back a little more than your standard caveman and cavewoman and cowboy and cowgirl outfits, but there's less chance of coming across a couple wearing the same stuff as you.

Famous couples

A famous couple can be anything from Posh and Becks to Fred and Wilma from The Flintstones, so you wouldn't be restricting your guests if you're upcoming fancy party invite stipulated fancy dress costumes for couples famous from the celebrity world.

Cartoons and comics

You and your partner could come as Dick Dastardly and Muttley from Wacky Racers or as Shrek and his wife Fiona from the Shrek movies. Why not dress up as Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story or as Disney's Mickey and Minnie Mouse? Popeye and Olive Oyl costumes are always popular, and you can expect some guests at your party to appear wearing a superhero outfit like Batman and Batgirl or Superman and Supergirl.

Period costumes

Sometimes it's nice to dress up in a period costume like gangster and moll from the Prohibition era in America or in a groovy 60s style with a long wig on. This sort of costume can be customised by things found in the wardrobe but it's harder to make it fit a celebity couples theme.

Movies and TV

This is always a popular theme. It's one that's best when it's taken to the extreme so don't go for the obvious ones like the Blues Brothers, pick something special like Mr and Miss Edward Scissorhands or the Official Walking Dead Zombie Costumes.

Final word

The most important thing is to have fun and to enjoy yourself when wearing fancy dress costumes for couples famous from the media. You'll end the night with loads of photos of you and your friends looking great in your costumes, which will be good to refer to before the next fancy dress party as you don't want to be that couple who always come in the same outfit.
