Can’t wait to wrap yourselves with DIY couples Halloween costumes the spooktacular way? If you’re still at the peak of choosing which is which, better do it fast ’cause the most-awaited fright night is about to happen in days! Check out this handpicked Halloween costumes that will surely wow the crowd at first sight!
The clock seems to tick the last few minutes before October 31st and everything appears to be happening in a fast forward mode. It’s been days that I’ve been consistently receiving emails and invitations for Halloween parties (from almost everywhere) and that excites me a lot. But soon after, I’m knocked down by the reality of not having a costume to wear yet.
Whether I’m with my squad or my special someone, I make it a point to make a common theme for our costumes. For this year, I’d be partying with my bae so as October began, I already started grabbing ideas for a cute couple costume. It was not that easy actually. Most of the costumes that we both agree on are not readily available in malls or dress shops in the city so we’re planning to do these trendy pieces by ourselves. Sounds complicated? Nah, the stitches and needles are here to save the day!

I just find this dance move really cool and so current (even if it was released 2015!). It’s hilarious to take the lyrics of this song literally! Kids today will immediately catch up with this joke and laugh with you for sure. You can try sewing the horse’s head or mask and whipping up a troll-like hairdo. We may not be showing off some sewing prowess too much with this idea, but the statement you’ll be making is LOL-ROTF guaranteed, you can’t help but give it a chance. Am I right?
Kids of all ages will recognize Mary Poppins and Bert the very moment they see these DIY couple costumes. What’s more scary than a magical nanny and a picture-jumping chimney sweep? The mere sight of them gives me the shivers! Kidding aside, I’m seriously considering sewing this item for my son and daughter. I find the individual pieces in these costumes reusable for future costumes or events. So yeah, I’m making this!
Believe it or not, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are my absolute favorite from the Toy Story movie. You and your partner will definitely win best-dressed at the Halloween party if kids were to judge it.
The timeless pair that nobody can compete with is the love team of Popeye and Olive Oyl. You can try crocheting the lace and then attaching it to a red top. Your husband or boyfriend will have a blast playing Popeye the Sailorman and getting all macho with the added DIY pipe and bulging muscle.
Step aside evil gangs, the terrible two is here! With Suicide Squad recently being shown in cinemas, there’s a big chance that all the Joker and Harley Quinn wannabes will be parading this Halloween.
