You’ll want to start talking costumes with your significant other weeks before the spooky holiday so you can brainstorm ideas and decide what matches your couple’s style. Think about words that describe you, such as funny, sexy, adventurous, romantic, or spooky. Additionally, put your heads together and make a list of your favorite Halloween costumes from parties past or consider your favorite movies, music groups, or historical figures. The task of selecting the perfect Halloween couple costumes will be easier when you have a basis to start from.

Start narrowing your options by deciding on a theme for this Halloween’s best couples costume. For starters, consider your favorite celebrity couples. Conversely, you could pinpoint your theme to an era like the 1970s. Want something super kooky and spooky this year? How about Morticia and Gomez Adams? With Gomez famously doting on Morticia 24/7, make sure your significant other is giving you plenty of spooky attention. Now, if Gomez’s public displays of affection are just too much, consider some of these ideas for the perfect couples costume this year:

• Beetlejuice and Lydia
• Superman and Lois Lane
