The 11 Best Halloween Costumes for Couples on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

Make it a one-and-done — or mix and match.

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. Here, because it’s almost Halloween, we’ve chosen the best Halloween costumes for couples on Amazon — we also covered the best Halloween masks and the best baby costumes — according to the people. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best Bacon-and-Eggs Couple’s Costumes

Rasta Imposta Bacon and Eggs Couples Costume
$33 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 226 reviews

“Got to love a couples costume that is inexpensive and fun to take the kids trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhood. Received a lot of compliments and chuckles. Next year will buy a sombrero to go with the eggs and be “huevos rancheros” and nunchucks and a karate belt for the bacon and go as “pork chop” or if cold outside, wrap a blanket around shoulders and call it “pigs in a blanket”.”

Best Beekeeper-and-Bee Couple’s Costumes

Bee Keeping Suit, Jacket, Pull Over, Smock with a Veil by VIVO
$27 at Amazon

4.2 stars, 262 reviews

“I bought this for my brother as a joke because he’s a bee nerd, he loves bees so much. He got really excited and wore it all day including at Christmas dinner which made our mom mad lol. I have no idea if it’ll keep you safe around bees but it does keep you safe from getting turkey thrown at your face!”

Women’s Bumble Bee Costume
$19 at Amazon

4.5 stars, 619 reviews

“This costume was purchased for my 88-year-old mother to wear to a Halloween Party. She’s about 5 feet tall and weighs 88 pounds — so it is large on her, making it look pretty cute. The wings and stinger add to the fun. Adding a black, long sleeve turtleneck, black tights and gloves completes the outfit. My 92 year old father dressed in the Beekeeper costume — they were a real hit at the party!”

Best Crayon Couple’s Costumes

Rasta Imposta Crayola
From $15 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 135 reviews

“I purchased this to wear at the office for Halloween. I work for a very creative company so didn’t think it would really be noticed. I was surprised at all of the comments I received. It really did look cute. Next year the people I work with are going to come as crayons as well …we will all be a different color … and the costume is so reasonable …. and made well.”

Best Gorilla-and-Banana Couple’s Costumes

Rasta Imposta Lightweight Banana Costume
$17 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 637 reviews

“I bought 5 of these costumes for a Halloween party for 5 guys all various sizes. Some at 5 foot 8 and a bit huskier and myself being 6 foot 3 and 185 lbs. Everyone loved them and we won best costume award. To stuff them all we did was put a t-shirt in the bottom to weigh it down and a plastic shoprite bag at the top to hold it up. Easy peasy!”

California Costumes Men’s Adult Gorilla Costume
$66 at Amazon

4.2 stars, 374 reviews

“For some reason this is my third gorilla suit and this one is by far the best quality. The mask looks great and has big enough eye and nose holes for adequate ventilation. The gloves look great with elongated fingers and allow a little dexterity. The foot covers are a nice plus and really tie the suit together. One thing to note: I’m only 5’9” and the suit is almost too short so taller folks might need to wear black socks. This suit is incredibly hot. It will keep you warm at football games in freezing weather, but if it’s over 60 and you plan on wearing for an extended period of time, stay hydrated.”

Best Pope-and-Nun Couple’s Costumes

California Costumes Men’s The Pope His Divine Holiness
From $30 at Amazon

“I bought this costume for a large (several hundred) costume party in Hong Kong. EVERYBODY wanted their picture taken with the pope! From the minute I walked in people were talking. I had so many picture requests I thought about charging $5. After the party we hit some bars in Wan Chai with similar results. The costume is simple but well made and easy to get in/out of. It was a bit wrinkled when it arrived so I took it to the cleaners to be pressed, and it came back perfect. If you want to get a good laugh out of people I highly recommend this costume.”

Rubie’s Costume Women’s Nun Costume
From $15 at Amazon

4.4 stars, 262 reviews

“I wore this costume to a Halloween costume this year and EVERYONE LOVED IT!!! People wanted their pictures taken with me!!! It was hilarious! I didn’t use the silly phrases that comes with this costume which you can place (Velcro) on the white crown piece though, that’s just not my style. My boyfriend wore the Wandering Gunman costume and I was obviously Sister Sarah (re the Clint Eastwood “Fistful of Dollars” series). That being said, this costume is easy to put on. You can wear street clothes underneath (I wore all black under mine) and not be overheated with the costume over it because it is very thin fabric.”

Best Wine-and-Cheese Couple’s Costumes

FunWorld Perfectly Paired Wine And Cheese Set
$50 at Amazon

4.0 stars, 90 reviews

“My mom and I wore these in Gatlinburg TN for Halloween and we were a hit. She added a cheesehead hat and put iron-on words of “who cut the cheese” on the back. People stopped us on the streets to take pictures with us.”

Best Baseball Couple’s Costumes

Rasta Imposta Lightweight Hot Dog Costume
$22 at Amazon

4.5 stars, 106 reviews

“The go-to for every food themed halloween party: The hot dog. Seriously, even if you only wear it once, you’ll be that guy who wore it once, and that will make it worth it. You should buy this while it’s on sale. The sturdy material means it’ll be good for several years of wearing and merriment.”

A League of Their Own Rockford Peaches AAGPBL Baseball Womens Costume Dress
From $48 at Amazon

4.0 stars, 318 reviews

“Best costume ever!!!! I had so many compliments. People were wanting to take pics with me and my husband. Walked a 5k in it, so it was comfortable to do so. I am 5’5”, 200 lbs and bought the XXL. It fit well, and it was so flattering for my figure (belly and big hips). My friend bought the same costume and she said it was the best costume. Don’t hesitate, buy it.”

Best Shark-and-Mermaid Couple’s Costumes

Party Shark Costume
$50 at Amazon

4.4 stars, 233 reviews

“This is HANDS DOWN the best money I’ve ever spent. I bought two for me and my sister and we adore our sharks! We are both 5’2” and although it was a little big, it was still fun and easy to wear.”

InCharacter Costumes Women’s Mermaid Costume
From $44 at Amazon

4.2 stars, 228 reviews

“This is by far the best costume I have ever ordered. It comes in a wonderful zipper garment bag. I did not want to take it off. I will wear for Halloween 2015. I added the seaweed wrap and sea shell clip. Added a fish purse and cute little heels. Defiantly purchase if you want to make a splash. I am 5’3 and weigh 149. I have a big bust of 38D and I ordered the XL. I do not hang out and it fits with a little room to move and dance in.”

Best Granny-Wolf-and-Little-Red-Riding-Hood Couple’s Costumes

California Costumes Women’s Dark Red Riding Hood Adult
$37 at Amazon

4.4 stars, 201 reviews

“I was so pleasantly surprised by this costume! I ordered a couple months ahead of time, assuming I would probably have to send this one back for something else … like you usually do with costumes ordered online. But this one is perfect! It arrived promptly, and fits me very well. I’m an average size and height woman (5’7/ size 6) and I ordered the medium, which often can be too big or too small, but this was just right. The material is decent quality, doesn’t look cheap or Halloween store like;) I love that it’s long and dramatic, and comes with the checkered scarf that you can turn any basket into one suitable for the costume. Can’t wait to wear it!!”

Big Bad Granny Wolf Adult Costume
$40 at Amazon

4.6 stars, 99 reviews

“My wife was Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween and so logically I was the big bad wolf … the grandma outfit was a great touch and we were a big hit at this years Halloween party. Everything fit well, I am 5’9” and heavy at 200lbs and had no issues with it being too tight.”

Best ’70s Couple’s Costumes

California Costumes Men’s Disco Sleaze Ball Costume
From $36 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 145 reviews

“I’m 6 foot and 230 pounds … Not a huge belly but I do have a belly (frown). Anyways, I ordered an extra large and it fits perfect. The pants have an elastic waist band which is totally cool. I ordered a brown afro wig to go with it. Overall, this is a great product. The material it great — it doesn’t feel cheap. Order it and you will be happy.”

Dreamgirl Women’s Disco Doll Costume
From $22 at Amazon

4.5 stars, 157 reviews

“Omg, my husband and I won the contest. He wore the matching mens Disco Shirt. I only had one complaint with the jumper, the V cut is so low that all of my “Cleveland” was hanging out. So I just wore a cover up. Jumper still a winner with me!”

Best Masquerade-Ball Couple’s Masks

KAYSO INC Original Lover’s Collection — Couple’s Masquerade Mask Set
$15 at Amazon

4.0 stars, 289 reviews

“My mask fit me great! It came super fast and it worked out really well for our event! My husband complained that his mask was kind of big and couldn’t adjust bc of the material, but he has a small head so it’s probably average size. Highly recommended!”
