Halloween is just weeks away, which means many a couple are trying to settle on an amazing costume for two. For some couples, choosing a costume requires no thought because they usually end up grabbing whatever’s in their closet. Halloween probably just isn’t their thing, and that’s okay.

But for others, Halloween becomes the most romantic/competative time of year.

They spend countless hours — and perhaps a significant amount of money — trying to achieve the perfect duo costume. And to this we say: Never. Stop. Because if there’s one thing we love in life, it’s Halloween. And if there’s two things we love in life, it’s Halloween, and creative, kickass couple’s costumes.

In the spirit of spooktacular duos, we’ve compiled a list of nine of the best couple’s costumes around. From famous TV duos to major gore-fests, we promise you won’t be disappointed.

1Jack Skellington and Sally

If you’ve seen The Nightmare Before Christmas then this lovely duo will definitely look familiar to you. From Sally’s stitches to Jack’s ghostly face — the attention to detail here is undeniable. We just have one question: Can this guy even see?

2A Bloody Affair

Sometimes love gets a little messy. These two have perfectly captured what seems to be a zombified love affair, using nothing but liquid latex, cotton, and tissues. Color us impressed!

3Black and White TV Lucy and Ricky Ricardo

Not only did this couple create the ultimate throwback costumes with their I Love Lucy characters, they took things up a notch and stayed true to the OG black and white.

4Denim Duo: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake

In 2001 Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears gifted us this *special* denim date-night outfit, and even though their love didn’t last, the denim-filled memories will live on through adorable couples Halloween costumes.

5Harley Quinn and The Joker

This couple did an excellent job recreating The Joker and Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. We particularly love the use of hair dye to recreate Harley’s blue and pink pigtails…and the deeply damaged look in this guy’s eyes. Perhaps the best Joker we’ve seen yet.

6The Obamas

This adorable couple kept it simple but classy, dressing up as the former First Couple. They totally nailed it!

7Starbucks Love

What better way to show your love for coffee and each other than to dress up in a Starbucks-inspired couples Halloween costume? One half of the couple kept it simple, donning an just a green apron, while the other half is dressed as what we’re assuming is a pumpkin spice latte.

8Big Bang Theory’s” Howard and Bernadette

Not only did this couple manage to look exactly like Howard and Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory, they even photoshopped themselves into a still of the show. Now, that’s next level costume commitment.

9Beauty and the Beast

We’re not sure we’ve ever seen a more extravagant and beautiful recreation of Belle and her beast. Almost every detail is a perfect match to the original costumes used in the movie. To be honest, we’re not entirely sure those horns are fake…they’re just that good.
