Halloween is just weeks away and of course that will mean Fancy Dress time. All over the world, families and children will participate in several Halloween pastimes such as Halloween Fancy dress, Carving pumpkins, attending Halloween parties and trick or treating. Halloween is especially a time for having fun in fact it is an experience that the whole family can enjoy. If you have a partner then dressing up together is extra special. When attending a fancy dress party at Halloween, there are many costumes which a couple can choose from. Although different costumes could be worn, a couple can instead pick Halloween Costumes which follow a theme. Just like in an episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, where Howard and Bernadette dressed as Smurfs, a couple can follow suit by wearing costumes which have a theme. So, what options are there?
Willy Wonka and an Oompa Loompa
There have been two film adaptations of Roald Dahl’s book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. The original 1971 movie that starred Gene Wilder can be the inspiration for a fancy dress costume because a man can be Willy Wonka and his partner can go to a party as an Oompa Loompa. With Wonka’s purple suit and an Oompa Loompa’s green face and bright orange hair, a couple will be instantly recognisable when they pick this costume idea.
The cartoon series ‘The Flintstones’ is still hugely popular. Along with Betty and Barney Rubble, a couple could also dress as Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Although these costumes can be made, it is recommended that they are purchased from a fancy dress retailer because an entire costume can be selected.
Mario and Princess Peach
There have been many video games featuring Mario and Luigi as they attempt to rescue Princess Peach from the evil Bowser. Not only do many women love dressing up as princesses but a couple will also look very funny, especially when a plastic wrench is bought for a Mario costume and a wand for a Princess Peach outfit.
Batman and Robin
A male and female costume doesn’t have to be purchased by a couple because Batman and Robin costumes can be worn. There have been many Batman movies and, although the Christopher Nolan trilogy is popular, the 1960’s TV series starring Burt Ward and Adam West has inspired Halloween Costumes.
Robin Hood and Maid Marian
A Robin Hood and Maid Marian costume is regularly worn at Halloween. The costume which Errol Flynn wore in the 1938 movie ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ can be chosen and the same applies to what Olivia de Havilland sported as Maid Marian. So that a Robin Hood costume is complete, buy a plastic bow and arrow set.
A costume idea for a couple can be similar, such as ‘Where’s Wally?’ By choosing a costume retailer that has a Wally costume in both a male and female design, a couple can dress as this character. With his trademark round glasses, striped jumper and bobble hat, a Wally costume won’t be mistaken for anything else.
There are many Star Trek Halloween Costumes for a couple to choose from. A man could be Captain Kirk and his partner can dress as Uhura. A wife can also be Captain Kathryn Janeway and her husband can choose a Spock costume. A couple can even be Vulcans and a fancy dress retailer might have these and many other Star Trek costumes in their catalogue.
