10 Movie Couples Costume Ideas

If you are tired of all the Frankenstein, witch, and zombie costumes, these 10 movie couples costume Ideas are sure to make you and your beloved the hit of any party.

  1. Aragorn & Arwen from "The Lord of The Rings." This idea is romantic, magical, and full of adventure. Aragorn is brave, strong, and fearless. His Elven lover Arwen is the picture of grace and beauty, and literally gives the greatest gift she has (immortality) to be with the man she loves.
  2. "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Not only is this idea from a kick butt action movie, the costume is a cinch! Oversized men's button up shirt, long enough to cover shorts so it look like the two of you are wearing nothing else. Mess up you hair, paint on some blood, and grab a few guns. You'll get kudos for the gutsy concept.
  3. "Bonnie & Clyde" The movie was based on the true story of depression-era bank robbers, and the costumes are masculine enough for you, and sexy enough for her. Who isn't turned on my a woman with a garter belt and a tommy gun, anyway?
  4. Trinity and Neo from "The Matrix." The men wear suits, the women wear leather, and everyone keeps their sunglasses on at night. "The Matrix" may be one of the most beloved movies of the new generation, and this combination of hard-core character costumes is sure to be a hit.
  5. Jack and Sally from "Nightmare Before Christmas." This clever costume works well for a Halloween party, a Christmas party, or all the parties in between. Jack has multiple options for the costume, with or without the pumpkin head, or he can be Santa. Sally is pretty confined to her rag-like apparel, but have your girl go nuts stitching together her body parts with black eye liner.

It's a little more sweeping and romantic than some of the couples costume ideas on this list, but mentioning the idea to your sweetie will score you mad points.
