Are you having a hard time coming up with a costume idea for Halloween?  Are you torn between a costume that’s funny, scary, or based on a specific character?  Rather than coming up with all the details on your own, think about planning a duo costume with someone else.  Duo and group costumes can be incredible party hits, and they’re fun to do!  Whether you’re with a date or just friends and family, here are some of our favorite duo costume ideas to get you started.

Lydia and Beetlejuice

Have a blast recreating the looks from the Lydia and Beetlejuice wedding scene! Get the right makeup to go with this red suit and dress combination, and you’re sure to WOW.  Just don’t say the B-word!

Joker and Harley Quinn

Feeling wild?  Live out your comic book fandom with these Suicide Squad-inspired Joker and Harley Quinn costumes that’ll channel your inner villain and anti-hero.

SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star

Everyone loves SpongeBob SquarePants.  You and a friend can re-enact when Patrick and SpongeBob SquarePants sell chocolate, consult the magic conch shell, sing “Campfire Song Song,” and all your other favorite SpongeBob SquarePants moments. Put on these hilarious, inflatable costumes and get on the next bus to Bikini Bottom.

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat are the perfect costumes if you feel like getting into a little bit of mischief!  In the mood to fly a kite in the house?  These hilarious costumes will allow you to get into trouble, while looking the part.

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy

Ready to solve some supernatural mysteries?  Feeling adventurous, a little bit timid, but also really hungry?  Zoinks! These Scooby-Doo and Shaggy costumes are perfect for finding clues, outsmarting a ghost, or preparing your favorite double-triple-decker sandwich! No green van required.


This can be a duo or group costume, but as a duo, you can either dress up as two Ghostbusters, or as a Ghostbuster and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.  This classic movie evokes tons of comedy, horror, and 80’s nostalgia, so it has something for everyone.  Just don’t cross the streams!

Stranger Things

One of the most popular shows on television has given us a lot of likable character duos, which means Stranger Things fans have a ton of great duo costume options!  If you want to set sail on an ocean of flavor, you can dress up as Scoops Ahoy’s own, Robin and Steve.  Or, if you’d prefer to eat waffle extravaganzas, watch late night Miami Vice, and save the world, get the perfect Eleven and Chief Jim Hopper costumes. 

Famous Foods

These food items are about as iconic as a duo can get.  You can go classic with Peanut Butter and Jelly or Milk and Cookies, or contemporary with Avocado and Toast.  Get a laugh, while educating people about the major food groups!
