20 Crazy Couples Costumes

While the scary stuff makes me squirm and the sexy stuff makes my nose wrinkle, particularly when it comes in tween and teen sizes, I can’t help but laugh and smile at all the silly costumes that line party store shelves this time of year.

To be honest, Halloween has never really been my thing. Growing up we didn’t really celebrate it as a family. My brother and I did, however; we’d dress up and go to church where we still got our fair share of candy.  After all, at the end of the day, all that really mattered was that we had candy to take to school the next day just like everyone else did.

My husband’s experience with Halloween was very different. He dressed up and went trick or treating each year, so naturally it was something that he wanted our children to partake in. For us, our happy medium has been that we all dress up and attend church events and our good friend’s annual party for the children. We visit the pumpkin patch, get lost in the corn maze, and eat cupcakes with orange and black sprinkles. We tend to make an effort enjoy so much of what this time of year has to offer except anything that might cause me to wet my pants out of sheer terror or dress alike. In the seven years that he and I have been together we have yet to wear a couples costume, despite a part of me always thinking it would be a lot of fun.

This year the girls and I are dressing up as honeybees. Unfortunately, I couldn’t convince him to be a bee too (major bzzz kill) but, I did spy a bee keeper costume. Who knows, maybe I can convince him to dress as one while he engages in this season’s festivities with his three honeys.

So tell me, do you and your significant other plan on wearing couples costumes this year or are you planning to do your own thing? If you’ve already got your costume picked out I’d love to know what you’re going to be.

Be sure to check out 20 crazy Halloween costumes for couples after the jump.
