Funny Couples Halloween Costumes

1. Avocado Halves

Rasta Imposta Avocado Couples 2 Piece Funny Costume Adult Mens Womens One Size Green

We’ll start with this costume idea because I believe it mashes up the funny and cute factors of a relationship.

The costume is a cut-up avocado, with one half being the one with the pit, and the other without it.

I think it’s hilarious because the description says, “Two halves make a great connecting whole,” and that’s a universal truth.

Also, based on the reviews, the material is super comfy. Plus, avocados are one of the trendiest fruits in the world, which makes it one of the most original costumes you will ever wear with your other half.

BUY IN AMAZON

2. Watermelon Sugar

EraSpooky Men's Halloween Watermelon Costumes, OneSize

We all know Harry Styles is one of the most well-known celebrities of this decade; his song “Watermelon Sugar” brought all kinds of people to know him, which is why a costume based on the title of the song is perfect for couples.

I can bet that when you and your partner arrive at a costume party with this costume, everyone will love it, and you will get a first place prize because everyone will know, “watermelon sugar, high.”

BUY IN AMAZON

3. Oreo Love

Rasta Imposta - Oreo Couples Adult Costume - Standard

Oreos are a classic. Everyone loves them, which is why this costume is so clever. As we established with the avocado costume, two halves make a whole, but sometimes, one half is better than the other, which is the paradox of Oreos.

But overall, this costume is funny, and everyone will have a good time with you and your partner dressed like this.

Sadly, this costume only includes the original flavor, but you can always dye it to your flavor of preference — the Christmas Oreos are my favorite.

With the variety of Oreo flavors, you won’t run out of ideas.

BUY IN AMAZON

4. Sneakers

Tigerdoe Couples Costumes – Novelty Sneaker Costume – Funny Adult Halloween Costumes – 2 Pc

This costume is the most unique, but at the same time, it’s a common costume that will make everyone wish they thought of it earlier because it is just so obvious.

Everyone wears sneakers, but wearing them as a costume is very creative, which is why with this costume, you and your partner will be the belle of the ball.

You will shine among all of the dull costumes, and because one pair cannot live without the other, you won’t get lost among the crowd.

Because they are made of soft and stretchy fabric and are a good length, it fits with most body types. It’s the perfect last-minute costume.

BUY IN AMAZON

5. Ice Cream and Cake

Cake & Ice Cream Couples Halloween Costume - Cute Adult Junk Food Outfits

Ice cream cake is one of the best inventions in the world. You combine the deliciousness of the ice cream with the moist consistency of the cake and BAM! Ice cream is created.

However, to make it, you need both items, which is why I found this costume to be one of the best couples Halloween costumes.

It reminds me of all the good things in the world; even though we have a pandemic going on, and some of us are still at home, there is ice cream and cake at the end of the day.

Warning: The people at the party might want to eat you, or you might break some poor person’s 30-day sugar challenge, but it will be worth it.

BUY IN AMAZON

6. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head

Disguise Women's Hasbro Game Mr. Mrs. Potato Head Costume Kit, White/Pink/Red/Grey, One Size

We can all agree that based on Toy Story, the one who holds the reins in the relationship is Mrs. Potato Head, so we recommend not fighting with your partner about who wears what costume.

What we can assure you is that this costume idea is such a classic that everyone will know you, and it will possibly get you tons of likes on Instagram, which is a plus.

One reviewer raves about the good quality and affordability of this costume, since it’s a kit that can be assembled easily. It is sold by Disney directly, which signifies high-quality.

BUY IN AMAZON

7. Mike Wazowski and Sully

Monsters, Inc. is one of those movies that’s a cinematic experience, and it shaped a generation, which is why its two main characters are known by everyone. They are unusual creatures and an obvious choice for a costume idea.

We picked these costumes because of the comfortability factor, and because they are easy to put on and don’t require any further preparation, which makes it the perfect last-minute costume that will cause a lot of laughs.

8. Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill is a classic, silly nursery rhyme that even Shakespeare quoted. All adults look back on it as one of the things they remember most in their childhood.

Unfortunately, we could not find an Amazon-recommended version of this hilarious and quirky costume idea; however, we are here to provide the basic elements you will need to build this costume at a reasonable price.

The only additional thing we did not mention is the clothes because you most likely already have them.

For Jack, you will need some khakis and a dress shirt, and for Jill, you will need some denim skirt overalls and a striped T-shirt.

9. Bob Ross and Painting

Bob Ross Artist Couples Costume Bundle Set

Bob Ross is one of those people that has resurfaced in this decade, and because of his calm tone of voice and fantastic walkthroughs, he’s inspired everyone to give painting a try, even if it’s not your forte.

This costume is an homage to Bob Ross, because he always said that painting is his way of expressing himself and creating something beautiful, which is why your partner will be the painting.

We cannot promise that you will have the laid back attitude of Bob Ross when you put on the outfit, but I believe that whoever is the painting will be the cherry on top.

BUY IN AMAZON

10. Budweiser and Gal

Rasta Imposta Bud Guy & Gal - Budweiser Vintage Can and Bud Light Dress Couples Costume Set Blue

College is where you find yourself, and in this case, where you find if you are a beer or wine person, which is why this costume is perfect for parties.

Even if a person does not like beer, they will still drink it at a party, so everyone will love this costume.

It is even better if you are underage, because even though you are not legally allowed to drink alcohol, you can still dress up as alcohol.

Full disclaimer: We are not encouraging people to consume alcohol, we are encouraging people to dress as alcohol, which is way more fun because it comes without a hangover.

BUY IN AMAZON

11. Bacon and Eggs

AMSCAN Bacon and Egg Halloween Costume for Adults, Standard, with Included Accessories

This costume is based on a common breakfast everyone has seen: bacon and eggs. Everyone knows it, and many love it.

Even vegans have their own version of bacon and eggs, which is why this is such a clever and funny couples Halloween costume.

It would be even better if it came with pancakes too; unfortunately, this is a couples costume article, not a trio.

But our trusted friend Amazon provided us with this top-selling costume that has nice material and is true to size.

Everyone will eat it! Pardon me, everyone will love it!

BUY IN AMAZON

12. Ketchup and Tomato

Ketchup & Tomato Halloween Couples Costume - Funny Food Outfits for Adults

Ketchup is a condiment loved by everyone. Because of its versatility, it can be found in most of the world’s cuisine. However, we cannot forget that without tomatoes, ketchup would not be possible.

This is why with this costume, we want to remind people that tomatoes exist, and that all of the tomato haters shouldn’t forget ketchup is made up of tomatoes, which is why they deserve the respect they have worked for.

Full disclaimer: No tomatoes were harmed for the creation of this costume, and the tomato has been raised sustainably. Apt for vegans.

BUY IN AMAZON

13. Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast Halloween Couples Costume - Funny Food Unisex One-Size Suits

I believe this is one of the trendiest foods of this past decade. Who doesn't love it?

Except for people who are allergic to avocados, avocado is the ultimate combination of fat and carbs, and with an egg on top, you have a complete breakfast.

This costume represents avocado toast. It shows us the humble beginnings of a toast and an avocado.

However, we all know everyone spices up their avocado toast differently, which is why this couple’s costume can also be used as a group costume. One of your friends can be the salt, another one the egg, and someone else the hot sauce. Honestly, this costume has a lot of potential.

BUY IN AMAZON

14. Joyful Blue and Red

Joyful Controller (Red) Halloween Costume - Unisex Adult Video Game Outfit

Video games are so popular right now that it is necessary to have basic consoles. A Nintendo Switch is one of them. It’s affordably priced and easy to carry around anywhere.

However, it is made to be played with other people, which is why this costume is so popular and easy.

No one would expect you to be the Switch’s Joy-Cons; it is the most obvious but the most underappreciated costume idea ever invented.

Think about all of the corny pickup lines you and your partner can come up with when you wear this costume — like, you are the L to my R.

BUY IN AMAZON

15. Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro

This movie is an all-time favorite; even Emma Chamberlain loves this movie. You can expect everyone to laugh at you like the losers you are because, of course, you will be wearing these costumes.

However, Napoleon and Pedro did not give a flying heck about them, and they hyped themselves up to everyone, which is why I think it’s empowering to wear these costumes. Heck yeah!

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a company that carries all the costume’s elements, which is why we recommend using your clothes; however, we found Pedro’s mustache, which you know, chicks dig mustaches.

16. Pam and Jim

The Office is one of the decade’s most beloved shows. You can find people quoting it left and right, paraphernalia from Dunder Muffin everywhere, and it has won five Emmys, which is pretty spectacular.

Some of the most beloved characters in the sitcom are Pam and Jim. Their relationship had so much suspense with a will they/won’t they romance that captivated the masses. It even has its own Wikipedia page.

This is why we think this costume is so cute and funny. Everyone will feel the love from you and your partner.

17. Pac-Man and Pinky

The creator of Pac-Man did not mean for the game to become such a success. He created the game with the purpose of attracting girls.

At that time, the stereotypes surrounding video games were focused on only-boys groups playing in the basements of their homes.

That is why the creator wanted to attract more female gamers to the industry and help break this stereotype.

This is why I think this costume should be included in this list. Plus, imagining this costume gives me the giggles, and I just think it is so much fun.

18. Cold Brew and Barista

I think cold brew was the predecessor of the Dalgona coffee. Before Dalgona coffee, everyone was drinking cold brews, so I think they should be making a comeback.

Coffee, in general, can be tasty and there is a type for everyone, which is why I feel baristas like cold brew combinations the most; it is very concentrated coffee that is so versatile that they can make a bunch of combinations with it.

I believe baristas and cold brew are meant to be. Even though this costume is not sponsored by Queen Starbucks, we still wanted to bring it to the list.

You can force your friend who doesn’t like coffee to dress up as coffee.

19. Nerds

Nestle-Nerds Box (2 Person)

I remember that when I was in eighth grade, everyone raved about these nerds. Do you know that small box of nerds? Forget that; it’s for wimps. The double flavor is where it’s at.

I understand the duality of having two choices of candy in one box, and I think the perfect way for you and your partner to be the best-dressed couple is to bring back the ultimate candy.

Everyone will tremble at your feet, and other candies will run away in fear. At the same time, everyone will be jealous of you.

BUY IN AMAZON

20. Pencil and Paper

No. 2 Pencil & Paper Halloween Couples' Costumes - Funny Adult One-Size Outfits

At last, the tools that have been used for most of humanity’s existence. Used by students all around the world, a usual pencil and paper is the ultimate weapon. Do you want to break up with your boyfriend? Write him a note.

Do you want to buy groceries and not eat everything in the way? Write a list. Are you procrastinating, and your final exam is tomorrow? WRITE YOUR NOTES.

That's right. You will be the couple everyone goes to when their iPhone 100 does not work. It is the perfect costume to remind everyone who was first, and to never forget they still need you.

21. Peanut butter and Jelly

Adult Peanut Butter and Jelly Costume Standard

This is the ideal snack. Everyone will hate you and love you at the same time because everyone can eat a classic PB and J. It is such a perfect last-minute idea because it does not require a lot of preparation.

Girls do not have to worry about diets or caking their faces, and boys don't have to spend 30 minutes admiring their abs or making POV TikToks in preparation for this costume, which is great because you know what they say — less is more.

Also, it's very affordable. You don’t have to buy separate pieces, and it fits great on any body type. It’s peanut butter and jelly time!

BUY IN AMAZON

22. Ancient Greek

Adult Party Toga Costume Large/X-Large

I included this kit in this category not only because I always wanted to be a Greek goddess, but because, usually, in these costumes you have to buy different parts from all over the internet.

This kit practically has everything, from the togas to the headpiece. The downside is you do have to find the shoes yourself, and you’ll have to invest your time in proper goddess and god hairstyles and makeup.

Which is fine because you don't want mortal hands touching your perfect skin. Also, we like the pricing of the whole set, and the fact that the material is super nice.

BUY IN AMAZON

23. Chicken and Waffles

Rasta Imposta Bucket of Chicken & Waffle Couples Halloween Costume Set, Adult One Size

A southern delicacy, it is very simple and at the same time very creative. Who doesn’t love chicken and waffles? It’s one of the best ideas ever created. Vegans have even recreated it in their style.

Paired with a sweet tea, it makes my mouth water. It can be kind of dangerous dressing up as chicken and waffles because you will make everyone hungry.

It is a blessing the costume does not smell real; instead of garlic breath, you would have fried chicken eau de toilette, and that is not what we are trying to accomplish here.

BUY IN AMAZON

24. Tequila Sunrise

Tequila Sunrise Halloween Couples Costume - Funny Adult Drink & Sun Outfit

Tequila is like a popular friend who throws parties at their house what feels like every day; the next day you regret even knowing that person, but you do it all over again anyway because it’s fun.

That is why it’s fun to drink tequila. The literal meaning of this famous cocktail will make everyone think a little bit out of the blue, which will make you a genius because you thought about it first — well, read about it.

It is so uncomplicated to prepare, that you can just order it, put it on, and you don’t even have to shower!

BUY IN AMAZON

25. American Gothic

American Gothic Couples Costume - Funny Famous Frame Painting Halloween Outfits

I think everyone has seen this idea at some point in their lives, and not many people realize it is a painting.

Even Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have recreated it, which is one of the reasons we had to pitch it as an idea.

Even better, this costume idea that we found on Amazon does not even require you to dress up, or even do anything with your hair.

You just have to bear carrying around a frame with you all day and risk a hunchback. But you know what they say, nothing comes easy in life.

BUY IN AMAZON

26. Pig Costume

Inflatable Pig Costume Christmas Costumes Fancy Dress Masquerade Funny Cosplay Party Clothes for Adult (1pcs)

Just hear me out. Imagine being one of the most intelligent animals on earth for an affordable price and great quality!

Everyone will compliment your costume, and you will finally be that guy/girl. Nice, right?

Also, the reviews for this easy couples Halloween costume are just so funny, so I recommend reading those.

But overall, this gift will fit even the tallest or the smallest of the two, and the compressor inside will keep the costume inflated for you at all times.

However, we do recommend wearing it in a not-too-hot climate. That way, you can be comfortable inside of it for hours without passing out from the heat.

BUY IN AMAZON

27. Firefighter and Puppy

We can’t promise you will look like one of the firefighters on the TV show Chicago Fire, but this is a close second.

Also, the puppy costume is so adorable that it can be used even when it’s not Halloween. You can just hang around wearing this, and you will be so comfortable that you will forget about your pajamas.

Man’s best friend is the dog, and because we are in the 21st century, that applies to all genres, so I am sure dressing up as a hero and as the best mate’s hero is a clever idea that truly does not require a lot of preparation.

28. Cheerleader and Athlete

In my lifetime, I think I have read hundreds of books featuring this classic conversation, and of course you’ve seen them in real life.

You can’t deny you haven’t heard of at least one cheerleader who has dated a football player.

Unfortunately, wearing the costume is not going to give you the flexibility a cheerleader has, or the strength to support bodies tackling you to the ground.

Maybe you are even a cheerleader or a football player. But hey, when and where else are you going to have the opportunity to wear this costume?

29. Tom and Jerry

Anyone who has not seen this cartoon is seriously missing out on the fun. It is one of the most famous cartoons in the world, and the antics of this duo never fail to make me laugh.

That is why we recommend these comfy onesies. They are so snug you can wear them around the house, and you don’t even have to paint your face brown or gray to fit the characters.

The material is fleece fabric, and they are super affordable.

30. Sheldon Cooper and Amy Fowler

The Big Bang Theory is one of those shows everyone quotes. Even if you do not know what it is, I am sure that you have heard of the iconic Sheldon Cooper. If not, what are you even doing in college?

We chose this costume because it is super easy to wear, and you only need a few pieces of the characters, like Sheldon’s Flash T-shirt and Amy’s socks and glasses.

What we recommend to complement the outfit from your closet is a long skirt with a sweater for Amy, and khakis along with a long sleeve for Sheldon.

Plus, you can act like them and nobody will say anything, which is fantastic.

31. Team Rocket

Pokemon might be one of the most known animes for all ages, and honestly, without Team Rocket, Pokemons would not be able to show their abilities or see them fighting.

They are the ones that create the drama, and their colorful hairstyles are awesome. I always wanted to be Jessie because I think she is so cool. With this Amazon recommended costume, I can!

The costume is decent quality and the size is a nice fit, and even if you have a problem, their customer service has five stars!

32. Lou and Remy

I feel like when I go on TikTok, most of my content is related to Ratatouille. Its music and its vibe have combined for a cinematic masterpiece that has influenced a lot of people.

So when you choose this idea as your preferred costume, we guarantee everyone will know who you two are.

Also, the mouse costume is so sweet, unlike the traditional mouse costume. You are a mouse from head to toe. For Lou’s costume, you just put the chefs’ coat on, plus the hat, and there you have it.

33. Adam & Barbara Maitland

Another popular movie, Beetlejuice has been converted from a musical to a haunted themed house in Universal resort.

That is why you just can’t pass up this costume idea. I mean, it is one of the most popular Halloween movies ever, and you can’t go wrong by trying to be as scary as these two.

It is so grotesque and so easy that you will win any competition there is. You can use your normal clothes and put on these latex masks, and it will be a success.

However, it may scare children, so be careful when you are around them, and be careful if you have any latex allergies because it is the main material of these masks.

34. Mickey and Minnie Mouse

The reason why I did not include the Mad Hatter with Alice is that costume takes work. But if you want to go the easier route, just be Alice and the Rabbit.

If it was not for the rabbit, Alice would have never fallen into that hole, so he deserves some recognition.

The Alice dress is made with a pull-on closure, and it has quality materials tested for any kind of accident. For the rabbit, you just need to wear all black, put on the hat, and draw some whiskers on your face.

35. Mavis and Johnny

I choose this because Selena Gomez is the voice for Mavis, and who does not love Selena Gomez? This pair does crack me up when I watch the movie, especially Johnny, with his laid-back attitude and aloofness.

However, he is so sweet to Mavis and is constantly bragging about her to everyone.

The Mavis costume has a quality wig, leggings, gloves, and dress. So you can practically wear anything.

The Johnny costume is very simple; you just need his iconic yellow shirt and normal pants. But you might consider growing your hair for this one, and style it as if you just woke up.

36. King and Queen Cards

This is a very easy costume. It does not need a lot of preparation. It’s perfect for the people who do not like to dress up, but have to because they are going to a costume party.

It is not too loose or too tight, so you can move or dance freely, and because of its pleasant material, you won’t overheat.

It also comes with both of the cards, so you do not have to buy the queen or king from other sites, which is perfect if you’re a procrastinator.

37. Mrs. and Mr. Incredible

Party City is the place to go when you need costumes, and, fortunately, they also have an Amazon store, which is where we found both of these costumes.

You and your partner will transform from boring, normal people to superheroes with superpowers!

What will make it even more amazing is if you have someone else dress as Jack Jack or Violet, but even on its own, these costumes are such good quality and do not require preparation since you will be wearing a mask with it.

If you do your hair or dye it blond, if you are not already, then we can guarantee this costume will be a hit!

38. Alice and The Rabbit

The reason why I did not include the Mad Hatter with Alice is that costume takes work. But if you want to go the easier route, just be Alice and the Rabbit.

If it was not for the rabbit, Alice would have never fallen into that hole, so he deserves some recognition.

The Alice dress is made with a pull-on closure, and it has quality materials tested for any kind of accident. For the rabbit, you just need to wear all black, put on the hat, and draw some whiskers on your face.

39. Superman and Wonder Woman

As soon as you put these costumes on, you will be overwhelmed by a sense of duty and power you can’t control.

This duo is so emblematic that you can’t go wrong with them, and with the newest Wonder Woman movie, it is currently popular.

Halloween is the only night when you can be anything you want and they will give you candy for it, so not being this super-couple will be a total shame.

40. Batman and Catwoman

Going with the superhero theme, Batman and Catwoman are like an old married couple. Their bickering is what turns on the flames of love. But seriously, these costumes are cool and alluring at the same time. You won’t be sorry.

Plus, with the Batman costume, you get to have those muscles and eight-pack without even going to the gym.

The Catwoman costume fits perfectly, and the one we chose is one of the few that doesn’t look like a potato.

Cute Couples Halloween Costumes

41. Lady and The Tramp

This is one of Disney’s most charming movies. Is just such a sweet love story that it was impossible to not put it as the first idea for this section.

You don’t even have to wear anything special from the head down; the headband and collar set speaks for itself.

The headbands are made with soft materials, so you won’t feel the need to scratch your head every five seconds, and the collar isn’t harsh on the skin.

42. Gnomeo and Juliet

Every time someone mentions this Shakespeare play, I always associate it with the characters of this movie, because they are freaking adorable!

Imagine you and whoever you are going with within these costumes. We guarantee that everyone will have hearts in their eyes at the sight of both of you.

For this costume, you don’t have to watch the movie. You just have to google them to have an idea of the plot and characters. However, I think the costumes are pretty clear on what is going on.

43. Bugs and Lola Bunny

As Bugs Bunny says, What’s up, doc? It must be one of the most popular quotes.

Bugs has a soft spot for Lola, who has such spunk in Space Jam, so it would be fun to be both of them. If you want to keep the costume simple, then we recommend these classic bunny ears from Amazon.

If you want to take it a step further, Amazon sells personalized Space Jam jerseys, and you can also paint your face with whiskers.

44. Sandy and Danny

Everyone has seen Grease at least one time in their lives, and I bet 75% of the world’s population has dressed up as the cast because of the memorable wardrobe of flowy skirts and leather jackets.

For this cute couples Halloween costume, we chose the quintessential couple, Danny and Sandy. Who can remember them singing “Summer Lovin’” or “You’re the One That I Want”?

We chose one of the best Amazon products to recreate the costume, and we chose Sandy’s leather ensemble along with Danny’s T-Birds jacket, which you can complement with your black jeans and T-shirt — because, you know, rocking and rolling and whatnot.

45. Harry Potter and Hermionie Granger

I chose Hermione as the other part of this costume because I always liked their wholesome friendship.

As you may know, at Hogwarts, a cape is every wizard’s main item of clothing. That is why we chose the nicest cape for this cute couple’s Halloween costume.

We also recommend the wand and the glasses from the same seller, and you can try to arrange your hair like Hermione’s.

46. Pennywise and Georgie

Alright hear me out, I know that this is supposed to be a scary movie; however, I think that the costumes themselves are a mix of being creepy and adorable at the same time, especially Georgie’s costume.

Also, because it’s a mask, you don’t have to do that complicated Pennywise full-face of makeup, and Georgie’s costume is just the yellow waterproof jacket.

The only thing missing is the iconic red balloon, which you can also find on Amazon. Truly, this pair will be so popular that you will scare everyone around you.

47. Corpse Bride and Victor

This is a movie that you always have to watch around Halloween. It’s one of everyone’s favorites.

For the corpse bride, Emily, we included a classic raggedy wedding dress, which only has good reviews. You only have to add the blue wig and cake your face with a baby blue-ish base.

For Victor, if you don’t have a tuxedo, we included a tuxedo jacket like the one in the movies, and, again, cake your face with a white base.

Just make sure you do not practice your vows in a scary dark forest because, remember — till death do us part!

48. Morticia and Gomez Adams

Honestly, these two are relationship goals. In the movie, you can see the electric dynamic between them. In some alternate universe, I would even like for these two to be my parents.

I believe the costume for Morticia is quite fitting and sultry, and with the right makeup, it will be a chef’s kiss.

For Gomez, we recommend that you draw on the mustache so that way, it can be as accurate as possible. This is one of my favorite couples. You have to try it out!

49. Velma and Shaggy

I always liked Velma and Shaggy more than Daphne and Freddy because they just complement each other so well.

Velma is the brains of the team, and we know that without her brain, most of the mysteries would not be resolved.

However, she is blind as a bat, and that is why Shaggy is so perfect for her. Even though he is cowardly most of the time, when Velma messes up, he always helps her somehow.

But they are not confirmed to be a couple, which is why these Amazon recommended costumes are perfect for those types of boy-girl friendships where there is no romantic spark.

50. Ash and Pikachu

The legendary duo from Pokemon is well known by everyone. There is no Ash without Pikachu, and there is no Pikachu without Ash.

This idea is for those friends or couples who just know what the other person is thinking, and it feels like you are sharing the same brain.

The adorable Pikachu costume is one that you will keep in your closet for those rainy afternoons; it can be multipurpose.

The Ash costume is good quality and well manufactured.

However, it only comes with the hat, the jacket, and the gloves, so we recommend that you wear some colored pants along with a black T-shirt, and you’re all set!

51. Wanda and Cosmo

Younger generations probably don’t know who these two are. However, the ones who do know probably wished they had one of these when they were kids.

In the series, we can see that Wanda would do anything for Cosmo and vice versa, which is why I chose them for one of the cute couple’s Halloween costumes.

Also, their costumes are super-easy to create. For the magic part, we have linked the items that are necessary for the outfit.

For Wanda, you can just wear a yellow shirt with black pants, and you can dye your hair pink.

For Cosmo, you can wear a white shirt with a black tie and black pants, and you can dye your hair green.

52. Woody and Buzz Lightyear

You can’t go wrong with this idea. Toy Story is one of Disney’s most well-known movies. Everyone will recognize it instantly.

This costume is for partners who want to have each other’s back for better or worse. That is why we chose these costumes. Each kit has almost everything included.

For Woody’s costume, you will need some blue jeans and a yellow-orange dress shirt to complete the outfit. As the song says, you’ve got a friend in us.

53. Peter Pan and Wendy

Peter Pan is a widely-known movie, and every character in it is so important, so it was hard to choose the best pair.

However, I went with Peter Pan and Wendy, because without Peter Pan entering Wendy’s bedroom, we would not have had the opportunity to take a look inside Neverland.

These costumes have everything included, making them perfect for procrastinators.

You just have to arrange your hairstyle for Wendy’s costume, and pick the shoes of your preference. You can even invite your friends to be Lost Boys, Captain Hook, and Tinkerbell.

Everyone will wish they thought about these two earlier.

54. Sally and Jack

The Nightmare Before Christmas must be on your list to watch around Halloween time. It is just such a beautiful, enchanting movie, and it is personally one of my favorites.

Sally with her kind personality is the perfect complement to Jack’s strong personality, which, in my opinion, makes them one of the most stable relationships on screen.

That is why we have chosen the most accurate costumes we have found. They do not require painting your whole body blue, and it has Jack’s classically striped jacket.

For Sally, we recommend painting only your face blue, with the stitches drawn in black. For Jack, because everything is included besides the shoes, we recommend buying shiny dress shoes.

55. Agnes and the Unicorn

I discovered this idea because I was buying this unicorn onesie for myself, and I thought that it would be such a sweet and cute couples Halloween costume to put here.

Even though the unicorn does not speak in the movie, he is with her at all times.

The costume for Agnes includes everyday clothes, like a yellow T-shirt and denim dungarees. for the unicorn, you have the softest material possible, so you can even be naked inside it — just joking!

But on a more serious note, this costume will not disappoint. Its affordability is what drew me in, and the wig we found is just hilarious.

56. Mario and Peach

Everyone in the world knows Mario Bros. All the characters in the video games are notorious. I think the love that Mario feels for Peach is eternal.

I mean, a lot of the video games have been invented with the whole purpose of him saving her from Bowser and other supervillains, so the dude must be smitten with her.

That is why this is the ultimate couples Halloween costume, because even though Peach is an important princess boss-woman and could easily beat Bowser, she lets Mario save her. After all, it’s important for him.

For this love story, we have provided you with the highest quality products that will fit the best and won’t tear, in case your Mario has to save you.

57. Finn and Rapunzel

Tangled must be one of the most highly-anticipated movies that we are waiting for Disney to recreate. The funny chemistry between the two main characters is what has us tangled —  *wink**wink*.

We have chosen costumes with a good fit, comfortable design, and that do not require a lot of work to wear.

For Rapunzel, we found a high-quality dress that will not tear.

Amazon also has a good selection of extra-large-long hair like hers. For Finn’s costume, you do not have to add anything, but can add the hatchet to your costume if you wish to.

58. Fred and Wilma

The Flintstones is an iconic animated series that should be taught as part of the history curriculum in schools.

Fred, Wilma, Betty, Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, and even Dino made this series attractive to all people during the sixties, and it was a pain to choose only two people for the cutest couples Halloween costume.

However, it was exciting at the same time to find the exact costumes for Wilma and Fred.

The costumes we found have everything you will need, from that rock necklace to Fred’s notable dress shirt. It’s not required to wear it with your clothes, and you can even be naked underneath!

59. The Grinch and Cindy Lou

This is not exactly a Halloween movie, but who says we can’t mix a bit of Christmas with Halloween? No one! This is why we present you with one of the coolest costumes ever.

Both of these characters have such unique features, with Cindy Lou’s hair, and everything about the Grinch in general. These costumes will take the crown.

And you can escalate these costumes to another level.

For the Grinch, we recommend caking your face with green paint until there is not even a spot, and for Cindy Lou, we recommend the viral makeup trick of putting blush from your cheekbones to your nose to give your face a cherubic vibe.

60. Beauty and The Beast

Finally, we bring to you an idea from one of the movies that have always been one of my favorites, which Disney recently recreated.

A very daring story, this film teaches us that what is important lies within ourselves, and it leaves us with a message of eternal love.

The costumes we chose for Belle and the Beast are brought to you by Amazon, and because they are sold by Disney, they include everything you’ll need.

The only parts of the costume of your preference are the shoes and Belle’s hairstyle. These products are beautiful for the pricing, and everyone will be gobsmacked by you.

Final Thoughts on Couple Halloween Costumes

Halloween is an exciting time to spend with your friends and to come up with the wackiest ideas.

We are confident this guide will give you some ideas that will guarantee a good time and will make everyone laugh (or scream).

In college, there is no time to think of an elaborate costume, which is why we have selected affordable and easy costumes that require almost no preparation.

While you sort through them, remember that the most important thing is having fun and making it as over the top as possible. Enjoy!

How Can Literature Classes in College Help You in Life

Published

on

By

Pages of Books

Much of the world’s historical cultures and traditions have been preserved in literary pieces that can be studied to learn about the older ways of life.

Most literary pieces contain encounters filled with various human experiences that help broaden one’s understanding of the world they live in. In a nutshell, studying literature courses can help you learn about various cultures and histories through commentaries, stories, and theories.

But, there’s more. Modern literature programs and classes are usually structured in ways that enable students to absorb a lot more.

This means that today’s literature programs can help students develop several transferable skills like essay writing, critical thinking, and more.

Thus, those students who study literature in college can learn several skills that can later be beneficial to employers. In this article, we will take a closer look at how literature classes in college can help you in life ahead.

But before we jump in, students reading this should also know that certain aspects of taking literature classes can be tough. For example, it is never easy to write great essays without a thorough knowledge of the process.

Thus, to perform better, students need all the help they can get.

Today, several digital platforms help students with their academic work. For example, students can use a top platform like Studyfy for their ‘help write my essay’ or ‘edit my essay’ services.

Using such services enables students to boost their academic performance while also giving them insights into their essay work.

In no particular order, here are 8 ways literature classes in college can help you in life.

1) You Can Improve Your Communication Skills

One of the best ways of learning to communicate better is through reading more. While studying literature, students need to continually read through various types of text like prose or poetry.

They are also provided with various study notes and are also encouraged to create their own.

Literature classes can also be very interactive and engaging. Most literature programs include discussions, debates, seminars, and more.

Overall, students would be able to learn better communication through more reading, listening, evaluating, and writing.

 

2) You Will Be Motivated to Weave Your Life’s Story

The main essence of any work of literature is that one can always find a story in them. This is because most literary pieces are created to record various events experienced in one’s body, mind, and surroundings.

And these experienced events are usually recorded as stories. Thus, reading more literary works can help mold the idea of ‘story creation’ early on in students.

And attending literature classes in college helps students understand the know-how of how it can be done.

 

3) It Can Help Improve Your Evaluation Skills

Studying literature properly is not just about plain and simple reading. But it also has a lot to do with being able to discern what one reads. And learning the art of discernment can improve one’s overall evaluation skills.

Being able to discern and evaluate then goes to help students communicate and write a whole lot better.

And this skill – of reading, evaluating, and understanding – is of paramount importance in the professional world.

 

books

 

4) You Can Become More Articulate

Most literary works are written in different styles because they are written by different people. And the more one reads, the more they would understand the complexities behind different writing styles.

But studying literature in college has more benefits than this.

 

Throughout one’s literature program, they will be put through various tests to gauge and improve their literary abilities. And one of the main abilities one can work upon is being more articulate.

This means that a good literature student would always include all the details when making any type of argument or point.

 

5) You Can Become a Better Writer

Yes, the ability to write well depends a lot on one’s imagination and frame of mind. But, to become a great or even good writer, one also needs to do a bit of reading.

This is because, without reading previous works, one will not be able to know the required standards for great pieces of text. And without it, one will not be able to write such that it grips their readers.

In the professional world, writers are some of the most well-paid workers. This is because they can convert heaps of information into understandable and engaging texts.

And this can help a business connect with its audience a whole lot more.

 

6) You Can Improve Your Interactive & Social Skills

Literature courses and programs are some of the most interactive ones around. Why? Because it involves a lot of discussions, debates, storytelling sessions, and more.

In any literature class, one can always find various types of commentaries and speeches from professors and students alike.

Literature students have the unique opportunity of digging deeper into various subject areas. And the best part is that they can do so with all of their peers together.

Learning such interactive and engagement skills from one’s classroom can help them greatly in their future careers.

7) It Can Improve Your English Skills – Better Grammar, Punctuation, & More

English is not only the most spoken but is also considered a standard language across several international communities. Thus, to grow to greater heights, sooner or later, one needs to brush up on their English skills.

Most literature programs and classes around the world are conducted in English. When one takes up a program in English, they have the opportunity of learning the language usage from the masters.

Thus, learning literature early on in life can profoundly improve one’s overall English skills, which can be crucial for career progression.

 

8) It Can Teach You Critical Thinking & Broaden Your Horizons

To efficiently power through a literature class or program, one needs to be able to contribute adequately. But one’s contribution is often seen as beneficial when they are also able to communicate their knowledge neatly.

A study of literature can achieve this by making students find various patterns and meanings in texts. Literature from various periods of the world also contains much information about historical cultures and traditions.

It can give a lot of insight to students about how people during different times in history were, what they did, how they thought, and more. This broadens one’s horizons and makes one look at the world in an autobiographical way.

 

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt that studying literature in college has several benefits for one’s life. But that being said, literature programs can be difficult in terms of learning and scoring higher grades easily. 

Students should learn beforehand about all the intricacies and semantics of their desired programs. Doing so would help them know which particular literature program would be the most suitable for them.

This post is all about the college packing list! 

Going away for college is the beginning of a brand new journey. You are leaving home behind for three or four months to live in a place that you have never been to before.

You now have to go to classes, move into your dorm room and receive a whole new set of responsibilities since you are off on your own. This is a big transition for any college student because you are going from having to abide by your parents’ rules to forming ones of your own.

Your parents will still check in with you and make sure you are okay, but now, in college, you are allowed to become independent and make your own decisions.

Now, it is your turn to have faith in yourself and make the right choices, starting with preparing what to pack away for college. You are going to be away from home for a whole semester, so you have to make sure that you have all of the things you need.

You need accessories to jazz up your dorm room. You need enough personal care products to last the entire semester. You have to make sure that all your school supplies are packed in your backpack and that you are up to date with the latest electronics.

If you are fortunate to have your own kitchen in your dorm, you must have all of the right tools with you so that you can learn to cook your meals on campus. Through this guide to packing what you have to bring to college, you will know exactly what you need and get you on the right track!

Final Thoughts on College Packing List

Getting ready to leave for college is an incredibly difficult task because you are essentially leaving behind the life you had always known, at least for a few months, to a brand new environment.

You will become mostly surrounded by people you have never met before and you have to rely on your own decision-making to solve problems that may arise in the upcoming semester.

It may seem very overwhelming and it is easy to become stressed out during this period, especially with the preparations before you leave for college.

You want to make you have everything you need before you are off on your own, which includes your personal care products, electronics, kitchen supplies, and dorm accessories.

Hopefully, this list has helped guide you in choosing the right items to bring!

Students taking notes in class

When taking notes in class, the most common way of taking them has always been with a paper and a pen, something that can be quite tiring and difficult to organize later.

In the middle of a class we may run out of ink, we may not have enough paper or we may not be able to write fast enough to keep up with the professor. And then after that, organizing the papers and folders can be a hassle.

For this reason and thanks to technology we can use our computer or our other various electronic devices to take notes in class. Taking notes from our devices can become something fundamental, since there are tools that allow us to have everything well organized and visually attractive. 

Having good notes is essential in the long run when studying a series of subjects to prepare for midterms and final exams. To ease the time consuming task of taking notes, we can take them on the different models of electronics such as a tablet, phone, or laptop.

So here I leave you with the 30 best note-taking apps of 2022 to stay focused and get keep up those important grades of yours! 

 

In this article

 

 

 

Best Note Taking Apps for Mac (Ipad) 

 

1. Notability

notability app

 

Overview: Notability for iOS is a different notes app. And this is because it allows us to add written notes, both on its virtual or physical (external) keyboard and by hand thanks to the touch screen of the iPhone or iPad. It also allows for audio or graphic recording as well!

 

Pros: 

  • Capacity to insert audios directly into the notepad. Notability has the capacity to insert audio files such as recordings and voice memos into the notepad just as you´d import any other file. Adding content to the note while playing back the imported audio will sync that content with the recording.
  • Page scrolling: With Notability you can scroll the pages up and down, so if you are a fan of the traditional PDF reader you will love this.
  • Hyperlinks: Support for hyperlinks in typed text (web page addresses, phone numbers, emails).

 

Cons: 

  • Delete pages quickly: You can´t delete multiple pages quickly. Every page has to be independently selected and deleted via a tab menu. So that´s a major pain when you have to import a large document with many pages that you don’t want. 

 

Price: Notability is now free to download, and will require a $15 per year subscription—or $12 per year for a limited time—to unlock all of its features.

 

Platforms: Available for iPad, Mac, and iPhone

 

2. Simplenote

 

 

Overview: Simplenote is an easy way to take notes, create to-do lists, capture ideas, and more. Open the app, type a few lines, and you’re good to go. As your collection grows, keep it organized with tags and pins, and find what you need with instant search.

 

Since Simplenote will sync with your devices for free, your notes will be with you at all times.

 

Pros:  

  • Very simple: Simplenote’s user interface is kept to a minimum. There are no formatting toolbars or extra features like notebooks to group notes. The entire desktop interface is comprised of a sidebar containing your tags and trash filters, a list of existing notes with search, a button to add a new note, and a simple view for looking at an existing note or writing a new one.
  • Works Offline: Users can edit and create documents while offline, then sync their content the next time they connect to the internet. As a result, a user can work even when there is no data connection without fear of losing work.
  • Time Machine: Each note edit is kept so that the user can return to a prior version of the document. This way, if you make a mistake or accidentally erase something, you may easily restore the previous version.

 

Cons: 

  • Search is limited to one tag: There appears to be no way to locate notes with both tags X and Y. This isn’t a major concern until you have a lot of notes and want to run a cross-search for two topics at the same time to limit down your results.
  • No support for file attachments: Embedded attachments are not supported by Simplenote. This may limit the app’s usefulness for certain users, as many other note-taking apps include this capability.

 

Price: Simplenote is free to download, and Simplenote’s premium subscription costs $10 per year. 

 

Platforms: Available for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux, or in your browser.

 

3. Noteshelf 

 

 

Overview: You’ll love Noteshelf as a note-taking app. Take lovely notes in your own handwriting, much like you would on a notepad, but better. You may text, annotate PDFs, and make voice recordings.

 

Pros: 

  • Personalize your notepads: You can choose a cover for each of them and choose between different types of pages.
  • Organize your notes into groups: Classify files within Noteshelf by folders.

Squeeze a document to contrast sections, draw lines to connect concepts in different papers, comment on many pages at once, expand on your ideas, and so much more!

  • Shape Tool: The shape tool does not needlessly snap onto everything. The app does not dictate the decision of where to place each line. This gives you design freedom.

  • PDF Size: Imported PDFs will have a preset page size that might be bigger than you like and this cannot be changed, but you can compress the document yourself before uploading it into the app. 

 

Price: GoodNotes 5 costs $7.99 in the App Store as a one-time purchase.

 

 Platforms: This app is available on an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac.

It is a minimalist note taking app that is meant for anyone who just wants to take notes without the hassle of going through too many complicated features.

Final Thoughts

 

Taking good notes in class is essential, they help extend the teacher’s explanation, which then facilitates success in exams.

Taking notes with a pen and a paper brings with it the idea of boredom and quickness; students might just see it as an obligation of just jotting in everything that comes out of their teacher´s mouth in such a fast way they are not even understanding the meaning of their notes. 

But today, with such advanced technologies, all those applications to write notes have saved and can save many students’ and adults’ lives at the time of writing their notes, ideas, or whatever crosses their minds.

These applications bring with them a number of tools that not only work for writing down each idea, but also let you organize everything your way, letting it look clean, colorful and even with incorporated images, videos and audios.
