Tough and incognito.


26. Bob Ross & Painting

Hands down, my favorite couple costume! Of course without Bob around, the painting will get some strange looks.


Couples Halloween T-Shirt Costume Ideas

And here’s a handful of couple T-Shirt Costume Ideas for those of you that want to be a good sport but don’t have it in you to get all dressed up.


27 – 80’s Awesomness – women’s & men’s

You could go all out if your guy wanted to just sport the shirt. Just grab lots of hair spray and eyeliner.


28 – Peanut Butter & Jelly Shirts



29 – Jack O’ Lantern Shirts – left & right side



30 – Candy Corns

For some reason I think this is really funny. Two of them would be better.


31 – Smart Jack ‘O Lanterns – left & right

Nerdy and really fun. Shirts look oh so soft.

32 – Prisoners – women’s & men’s

Costume or just a cute shirt. Meh. You decide.


Get crackin’ on those costumes soon so you aren’t running around last minute grabbing whatever is left at the store! Last minute costume leftovers seldom turn out well…


Happy Halloween everyone.
