From costume ideas inspired by movies, Disney villains, and heroines, to ones modeled after your favorite celebrities, we have you covered for your next Halloween party!
Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples
They say attitude is what completes a sexy Halloween costume and we agree. You need to embody the character and bring them to life. Adult costume ideas can be extra fun since you can play with them and make them your own – sexier if that’s your vibe. While you’re at it, why not go for matching hot couple costumes with your partner? Who knows, you might even become a showstopper this year.
Netflix Series and Movie Couples Costumes for Halloween
There is endless inspiration for couples’ Halloween costume ideas from both film and TV. Here are some popular ones that you and your beau might want to try.
1. Harry Potter – Harry and Ginny, Ron and Hermione
If you and your partner are fans of the Harry Potter films, there are book canon pairings like Ron and Hermione or Harry and Ginny that make for the perfect Halloween costumes for couples. Willing to step out of the box? Why not make your own pairing? There are no rules to this so let your imagination run wild!
2. Game of Thrones – Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen

3. Suicide Squad – Harley Quinn and The Joker
Halloween is known as a night of mischief and who better to embody that than Harley Quinn and Mr. J? These two have had many different costumes throughout the years, which are perfect for matching hot couple costumes. Our favorite is this one inspired by Margot Robbie and Jared Leto’s version from the Suicide Squad film!
4. Bridgerton – Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset
Can the regency era be sexy? If you live in the Bridgerton universe, it most certainly can. Bridgerton-inspired sexy couple Halloween costume ideas may take a bit more prep work, but we’re sure fans of the show will enjoy the process. Other couples on the show you can emulate include Anthony and Kate, Eloise and Theo, and Penelope and Collin (who the third season will focus on). Check out the Bridgerton family tree for more ideas!
5. Marvel Couples – Spiderman and MJ, Thor and Jane Foster
Given the vastness of the Marvel multiverse, there’s no shortage of cute couple costumes to choose from! Take your pick from fan favorites such as Spiderman and MJ or Thor and Janes Foster from Thor: Love and Thunder. If you’re not afraid to go green, you can even do a Hulk and She-Hulk cosplay with your beau.
6. Pulp Fiction – Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace
Less is more when it comes to dressing up as Pulp Fiction’s Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace for Halloween. These characters are two of the most iconic movie couples’ costumes on our list. Pull together some wigs, matching tops, and bottoms to get this simple yet sexy look. Just make sure you can give the Pulp Fiction dance scene some justice!
7. Scooby Doo – Daphne Blake and Fred Jones, Scooby-Doo, and Shaggy Rogers
Here’s a slightly irreverent take on the beloved Scooby Doo characters: a sexy Daphne costume! We’re sure your Fred wouldn’t be able to take his eyes off of you during the party. But for couples who prefer funny couples costumes, they can dress up as Scooby-Doo and Shaggy. After all, their bromance is just as popular as the other couples on our list!
8. Peter Pan – Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
How about injecting a dose of fun and magic into your Halloween? With just a bit of pixie dust, you can achieve this flirty Peter Pan and Tinkerbell costume. Though not the most common sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, these two are fun characters to try.
9. Addams Family – Morticia and Gomez
If sexy and intense is the vibe you desire, look no further than Morticia and Gomez Addams. Not only are they the epitome of gothic romance, but these two also smolder whenever they are onscreen. Take cues from Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s simple yet effective interpretation of the cult favorites!
10. Pride and Prejudice – Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy
The classic novel Pride and Prejudice by author Jane Austen set many hearts aflame because of its enduring love story. If you’re in the mood to bring that to life with your matching Halloween costumes, dressing up as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy is a good idea. Aside from getting inspired by light academia aesthetics, you can also copy a few things from the 2005 film adaptation starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.
Celebrity Couple Halloween Costumes
Hollywood celebrities like Heidi Klum are well-known for their ability to turn sexy couple Halloween costume ideas into reality. This year, why not put a twist on it and dress up as the celebrities themselves? If you’re up for the challenge, here are some ideas you can try.
11. Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson may have broken up, but one of Tinseltown’s famous couples left us with many iconic moments. Not least of which is their appearance on SNL together, even before they became a thing. Your partner can dress up as a tattooed Aladdin while you channel a sexy Princess Jasmine. This is perfect if you’re looking for unique Halloween costumes.
12. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
It took them a while, but Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck finally made it to the altar! They wed in August of 2022 and looked simply gorgeous during the ceremony. While recreating their nuptial looks might be a stretch, their outfits for the film Gigli is more achievable. Besides, for matching outfits for couples, you can’t go wrong with a pair of leather jackets!
13. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
If you’re in the mood for something risque when it comes to adult costume ideas, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly will deliver those raunchy vibes. For these two, though, it’s all about the makeup and the tattoos. To complete the look, dedicated fans can even attempt to recreate their infamous engagement ring that was revealed earlier this year. We suppose a bit of fake blood, given their penchant (ahem) for it, wouldn’t hurt too!
14. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
Here’s another sexy Halloween costume idea courtesy of our favorite rockstar pair. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker wed a total of three times, with the third one set in romantic Portofino, Italy. It was this ceremony that gave us Kourtney’s iconic Dolce and Gabbana looks, which you can recreate for Halloween, too!
15. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
There’s a good reason why Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are considered to be one of the best celebrity couples by many. Their chemistry is just so good, you can’t help but fall in love with their love. Why not dress up as them this Halloween and channel the same appeal? Though not the usual choice for sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, their Met Gala 2022 couple outfits were simply iconic. If you want truly iconic couple Halloween costumes then have your partner dress up as Deadpool instead!
16. Prince William and Kate Middleton, The Prince and Princess of Wales
From rockstar to royalty, our next couple are the newly-minted Prince and Princess of Wales. You might think their fashion is too prim and proper to be considered for Halloween costumes, but their wedding attire is certainly one for the books. Why not incorporate a playful twist and go for a shorter version of Kate Middleton’s gown instead?
17. Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
It has been years since “Haylor” broke up but Harry Styles and Taylor Swift remain one of the best celebrity couples – well, ex-couple. So much so that if you’re looking for fun couples’ costumes you can reference these two easily. We suggest their iconic (also questionable) Grammys outfits as a starting point!
Cute Halloween Costumes
From games to book characters, there are plenty of sexy and cute couples’ Halloween costumes to choose from. We recommend putting your own spin on things to make unique Halloween costumes that will surely stand out.
18. Stranger Things
Stranger Things has given us plenty when it comes to Halloween ideas, including couple and duo Halloween costumes. You can take your pick from Eleven and Mike, Joyce and Hopper, Steve and Robin, and Max and Lucas. Though, our favorite from the show’s fourth season would have to be Eddie Munson and Chrissy.
19. Demon Slayer
Anime is another great reference for Halloween costumes. You can find sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, as well as cute ones. For a mix of both, Kimetsu no Yaiba or Demon Slayer is one of the best shows to check out. Some of the Demon Slayer characters couples can dress up as include Nezuko and Zenitsu, Tanjiro and Kanao, Giyu and Shinobu, and Mitsuru and Obanai.
20. Barbie and Ken
By now, we all know that Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling have been cast as Barbie and Ken for Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film. While the movie still is set to be released next year, why not get ahead of the curve and take cues from the film’s candy-sweet styling? We’re sure it’ll be one of the most popular Halloween costumes for women, men, and couples after the movie’s release.
21. Hugh Hefner and Playboy Bunny
Hugh Hefner was the head honcho at Playboy before he passed on. If you’re a fan of his work, honor his legacy by dressing up as him this Halloween. This is one of the few sexy couple Halloween ideas on this list that’s easy to put together. Just make sure you can embody his inimitable swagger when you do.
22. Princess Peach and Mario
Who said Princess Peach has to be stuck wearing her frumpy cupcake gown? In this modernized version of the video game couple, Princess Peach is looking sparkly and sleek. The look is perfect for those looking for cute and easy couple costume ideas that are recognizable, but not too on-the-nose.
23. (Sexy) Gru and Minions
We’re not saying you should give the example a try, but we’re not completely opposed to it either. Halloween is all about letting loose and creating mischief, so why not? Give people the surprise of their life by showing up in this completely out-of-the-box version of the beloved characters. We call it: the bimbofication of Gru and his minions.
24. Tim Burton’s Coraline
While we’re sure you would never want to meet the Other Mother from Tim Burton’s Coraline, dressing up as Coraline and Wybie would be perfect if you’re looking for matching Halloween costumes. Romance is only subtly hinted at, so even friends can give this a try.
25. Wednesday and Pugsley Addams
Can the Addams Family be cute? Sure, if you like cuteness with a side of evil intent. If this is your cup of tea then why not dress up as Wednesday and Pugsley, the younger lot of the infamous clan? With Netflix releasing their new comedy-horror series Wednesday this November, we’re sure they will be one of the most popular picks for Halloween costumes. After all, these are also easy Halloween costumes to put together.
26. Doki Doki Literature Club
DDLC or Doki Doki Literature Club only looks adorable on the surface. This popular horror game hides a very sinister secret, after all. Whether you’re a twosome, a threesome, or even a foursome you can find the perfect characters to dress up as in this game.
Looking for other game costumes? Here’s our list of the 20 best PS4 horror games to help you out.
27. Greek God and Goddess
This is something you can easily put together in a pinch. Channel your inner Grecian god and goddess with these toga-inspired matching hot couple costumes. The best bit? You can save a bit of money by using as little fabric as you like!
28. Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf
Bad, bad dog! Kidding aside, Red Riding Hood is a Halloween fan favorite. It can be interpreted in many ways, whether you lean toward something more traditional or modern like our example. If you need some easy but sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, this one is also quick to put together!
29. E-Girl and E-Boy
This alternative style took over social media at one point. While it hasn’t become completely obsolete, it is less popular enough for you to turn the concept into an effective Halloween costume. You wouldn’t want to look like you’re headed to the mall in your best emo fit, right? The key to making this work? Don’t overthink the E-boy or E-girl aesthetic and keep things fun.
30. Astronaut and Alien
Space geeks unite! For cool Halloween costumes, check out this astronaut and alien pairing. It may not prove that there’s extraterrestrial life, but we’re sure you’ll be the life of every Halloween party in these costumes.
Gothic Halloween Costumes for the Romantics
The beauty of the Goth aesthetic is that there are many variations to it. You can tap into this and bring to life a Gothic Halloween costume that’s truly your own. Below are some costumes for inspiration.
Starting off this list with our favorite creeper, Beetlejuice. He and Winona Ryder’s character, Lydia, had many memorable outfits but none more so than their “wedding” attire. The blood red might be uncommon but everything else is very Gothic-inspired.
32. Alice in Wonderland
This isn’t a classic take on the beloved story, that’s for sure. Based on The Mad Hatter and The Queen of Hearts from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, don outfits inspired by Goth fashion. It may not be your usual sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, but you can tweak this to make it suit your taste better.
33. Corpse Bride and Victor Van Dort
Yes, Tim Burton will make multiple appearances on this list. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since he did bring to life some of our favorite Halloween movies! Corpse Bride is just one of the many classics that is still being used as Halloween costumes today.
34. Dracula and Mina Harker
Forget the sparkly vampires of Twilight. If you want sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, look no further than the OG – Dracula. His sleek suit ensemble paired with Mina Harker’s glamorous red dress will certainly turn necks.
35. Steampunk Couple Costumes
Let your imagination fly instead of being limited by following a certain character this Halloween. Steampunk is quite easy to put together with design elements that can be found at local thrift shops. These sexy scary Halloween costumes are timeless so people of any age would look good in them, too!
36. Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett
Fancy a pie? Perhaps a shave? This iconic (cough, murderous) pair is the perfect duo to dress up as for Halloween. They are sexy in their own sinister way, but the real draw is in how fun it would be to put the look together! Our tip? Don’t forget a generous smattering of fake blood to complete this Gothic cosplay.
37. Victorian Couple
It’s Victorian with a touch of bondage and about as sexy as austerity can get. We’re sure you can easily find a latex dress or two at Party City costumes to complete this look! Consider this if you’re looking for a couple of sexy Halloween ideas.
Misa and Light might have been the central couple in this story (if we discount the tragic bromance between L and Light), but for truly unique cosplay costumes try a different pairing instead. We suggest giving Ryuk and Misa a try. What could be sexier than having a death god be at your beck and call?
39. Gothic Lolita
Gothic Lolita, much like Steampunk and Victorian Goth, is a fashion subculture and not a costume. However, if you create a character with this style, then you can put together fun adult costume ideas. A pair of lost dolls or child vampires? The limit is your creativity.
40. Death and the Maiden
Death and the maiden is a fairly popular theme in art, as well as in films. It can also translate beautifully into Halloween costumes, depending on how you interpret it. You don’t have to go as big as our example. Something subtle can also work for Halloween sexy couple costume ideas with this theme. Here are some creative Goth makeup looks to help you out.
Scary Couples Costumes for the Horror Fans
Can something that’s supposed to be scary also be sexy? If you’re creative enough, without a doubt. Let’s not forget, Halloween is for tricks, treats, and terrors. Check out some great examples below.
41. Bonnie and Clyde
This notorious couple gained infamy for their crime sprees and devotion toward each other. Take cues from their simple 1930s fashion and give it a macabre twist by adding gun wounds and a smattering of fake blood. If you’re looking for hot couple costumes in 2022 that will turn heads, this is it.
42. The Purge
What could be more frightening than murder? An entire day where all crime is legal. While The Purge is completely fictional, the creep factor that comes with dressing up as a “purger” for Halloween would be very real. These are Halloween costumes for couples with very specific (see: murderous) tastes.
43. Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday is celebrated right around Halloween, so dressing up as a skeleton with your beau seems fitting. Not only do these make for sexy couple Halloween costume ideas, but you are also paying tribute to a beloved tradition in Mexican culture. As such, you would want to do this with reverence, lest the spirits of the dead decide to teach you a lesson in respect.
44. Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head and Nurse
Whether you have played the Silent Hill games or merely seen a sneak peek of the 2006 film, we’re sure Pyramid Head left you feeling scared. Couple this character with one of the terrifying faceless nurses and you have a recipe for either a nightmare or one of the best scary couples costumes for Halloween.
45. Voodoo Dolls
They may look benign in this setting, but we bet you’d feel a lot different if you happen to encounter these two in a dark hallway! Voodoo dolls are quite uncommon and are good Halloween costumes if you want to leave a lasting impression.
46. Plague Doctors
In its historical context, the masks worn by plague doctors weren’t created for scary costumes. Those beaked masks, that resembled crows or ravens, were meant to protect and not scare. Though, if you put yourself in the shoes of plague patients who had to look at those masks daily wouldn’t you be scared to death, too? We kid, we kid.
47. A Scary Nun and Plague Doctor
Nuns are a force for good, but something about possessed ones that make for a really frightening image. It doesn’t help that recent horror movies (Valak, for example) have been banking on this exact fear. Be forewarned though, looking into a mirror after putting your costumes on might make you rethink your life choices so only give these devil couple Halloween costumes a try if you’re brave enough.
48. Victorian Vampire Couple
What’s scarier than your average vampire? A Victorian vampire. These beings are often portrayed as incredibly powerful, wise, and charismatic. They are able to lure victims in with a single glance or word, before sucking the life out of them. But let’s admit it: they stand at the cusp of terrifying and hot. A pair of Victorian vampires is one of the best sexy couple Halloween costume ideas out there.
49. Nature Spirits (On Stilts)
These unsettling Halloween costumes require some degree of skill when it comes to using stilts, but if you are able then what’s stopping you? Jokes aside, you can still take the concept of forest spirits and incorporate that into a Halloween couple costume without the stilts. Remember, the best Halloween costumes are those that are completely your brainchild.
50. Killer Clown Couple Costume
What is it about clowns that trigger a primal fear among some of us? Some say it’s their expressions and the off-putting way in which they move. Maybe it’s the blood and the fangs? Regardless, clowns have long instilled fear in both children and adults alike. As such, they deserve a spot in our list of scary Halloween costumes for couples.
Stand Out With These Sexy Couple Halloween Costume Ideas
Sexy can be defined in many different ways. Some think that cute is sexy, while there are those who find the darker things to be more appealing. We hope our list of sexy couple Halloween costume ideas helped inspire what you’ll be wearing to this coming spooky season’s many Halloween parties.
Look good and make sure you’re playing the right tunes with this list of the best Halloween songs!
