Transcript:Creative Couple Costume IdeasHi, I'm Ron Diamond, owner of Ronjo.com Magic and Costumes, with great costume ideas for couples. Wearing a costume is a great opportunity to get creative.
Vampire Couple CostumesHere we have a very traditional costume choice, the vampire and his mistress. But you can really add some creative elements with just a few accessories. Her handbag is smartly styled like a coffin and matches the lacy arms of her costume perfectly. Her neckband and his necklace give the costumes that completed look. Our vampire is wearing a deep red velvet vest that perfectly complements his high-collared shirt. One more nice thing about these costumes is that they are both floor-length, meaning party goers can wear comfortable shoes without spoiling the look of their costumes.
Little Red Riding Hood Couple CostumesAnother common theme that can really be brought to life with some creativity is beauty and the beast. Here we have little red riding hood, who is being stalked by the big bad wolf. The movable mouth makes this mask really comfortable, so our beast won't mind staying in costume for the whole party. Red Riding Hood has a beautiful wig that matches her costume and her hood. Her handbag looks just like the picnic basket from the story, but actually opens to store her wallet, keys or cell phone. The wolf's hands are fully functional and the shoe covers allow him to wear anything comfortable. The ripped shirt on the costume is very flexible and can be worn with virtually any kind of pants.
Crab and Penguin Couple CostumesHere is an odd couple that really screams creativity! We have an ocean-going couple with a queen crab and a penguin. All of the crab's arms are attached so that they move together, creating a great look for our crustacean. The dark leggings really help to vanish the legs, drawing your attention to the great detail in the crab. Our penguin is a full-length costume with movable arms and accent flippers for feet. The fins can make holding a drink difficult, but they look great on the dance floor.
