15 Scary Couples Costumes for a Killer Halloween

You typically leave the gross, wicked and downright disturbing characters to your favorite horror flicks, but Halloween is a time to embrace all things creepy and weird. While some people show off their funny bone with pun-filled costumes, you and your S.O. get a bigger thrill by tapping into the holiday’s serious creep factor. You’ve come to the right place: Go with any of these scary couples Halloween costumes — some homemade, some ready to buy— to send a shiver down your spine (and everyone else’s).

Choose between a range of blood-curdling costumes: movie characters that haunt your dreams (Chucky and his bride), TV’s most terrifying duos (Twisty and Weeping Nun from American Horror Story) or classic couples costume ideas that are guaranteed to bring the screams (killer clowns). Use these ideas as inspiration, but keep in mind that there aren’t any hard-and-fast rules — you can easily tailor these looks to your relationship by switching up who wears what. Plus, if you find that they are still too mild for your fright levels, enhance them with fake blood and face makeup for a truly killer Halloween.
