17 DIY Halloween Costumes for Modern Couples

These 17 Halloween costumes are perfect for couples who aren’t afraid to rummage the thrift stores or break out the glue gun for the sake of an unforgettable costume.

Halloween is a great holiday for couples to celebrate together. What’s better than cuddling up on the couch to watch a scary movie while you snack on some popcorn… or maybe a Snickers bar that you ‘borrowed’ from your trick-or-treat candy stash? Another great thing about this festive fall holiday is that you get the opportunity to be whomever (or whatever) you want for a day.  Planning and making a costume with your other half can be just as fun as wearing it!
