Transcript:Fictional Couple Costume Ideas
Whether it is for Halloween or an upcoming costume party, you and your significant other can make it fun by dressing as a fictional couple. Take a look a few ideas that you might personally enjoy or that will make a statement when you get into character.
Consider Timeless Fictional Couples Costume Ideas
There are some timeless fictional couples that most everyone is bound to recognize, especially because they are from popular nursery rhymes, fairy tales, or books. These include Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Jill, Little Bo Peep and her Lamb, and Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Many of these costumes can be made quite easily if you are crafty with costume instructions found online. Of course, many costume rental shops and online stores offer these costumes to save you time and help you if you're not a whiz with the sewing machine.
Movie Characters Also Make Good Fictional Couples Costume Ideas
There are also some other very timeless and classic fictional couples that are fun and might match your personality. These include Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein, Hunchback and Esmeralda, Romeo and Juliet, Tarzan and Jane, and Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler. The great thing about going as some of these couples is you can choose to make the costume as sexy or conservative as you and your significant other feel like dressing.
Modern Characters Make Timely Fictional Couples Costume Ideas
Other ideas include some more modern characters that resonate as currently popular and that could be favorite fictional couples for years to come. These include Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from the Twilight Series, Harry Potter and Hermione, Lone Ranger and Tonto, Sookie Stackhouse and Bill the Vampire (or Eric if you are Team Eric), and Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty.
Offbeat Characters Make Fun Fictional Couples Costume Ideas
Even more fictional characters to dress up as that may or may not be as recognizable include King Arthur and Guinevere, Aragon and Arwen, Hagrid and Norbert the Dragon, Dorothy and a Tornado (or Toto) or Winky and Dobby. Whatever you choose, be sure to have fun with it and make the most of your role playing time (wink, wink).
