The 10 Best Couples Comic-Con Costumes
You and your significant other have decided to attend the next Comic-Con…YAY! Now it’s time to find the best couples Comic-Con costumes to wear.
Hundreds (if not thousands) of possible costumes are ideal for couples. Here are ten of the best options!
1. Jurassic Park Characters
There are plenty of couple costumes with a Jurassic Park theme alone. You can opt for the typical Claire Dearing and Owen Grady combination or go all out with a dinosaur costume.
2. Bank Robbers
For some reason, bank robbers always seem to come in pairs in movies. And most bank-robbing scripts have some romantic element.
This is an easy matching costume set to put together, as you’ll only need some striped white and black shirts, black pants, an old-fashioned money bag, and a couple of masks and black beanies for good measure.
You can also buy a bank robber costume set from Amazon for less than $30!
3. Wizard of Oz Characters
The Wizard of Oz is another movie that offers couples Comic-Con costume options.
One of the most common combos for couples is Dorothy and Scarecrow. Still, you can mix it up with easily recognizable characters like the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, or the mysterious Wizard himself.
4. Popeye and Olive Oyl
This classic couple’s costume idea never gets old and is impossible to miss at a party. Plus, it’s easy to put together from scratch!
If you like buying your costumes online, you can find plenty of Popeye and Olive Oyl outfits for relatively low prices compared to some more extravagant costumes.
5. Playboy Bunny and Hugh Hefner
This one is an obvious option for any couple that wants to go for the sexy approach of this Comic-Con. Like most costume ideas, you’ll find it’s been done and done again, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the classic couple’s costume ideas worthy of consideration.
For the guy, assembling the Hugh outfit is as easy as throwing on a soft red and black bathrobe and captain’s hat with a tobacco pipe. You can buy these items as a set!
For the woman, a simple black one-piece with bunny ears will do.
6. Superman and Wonder Woman (or Lois Lane)
If you and your partner are down with the superhero vibes, why not go as two of the most famous and powerful superheroes?
In this case, there is a bit of flexibility regarding the exact costume you put together. The guy can go as Clark Kent or opt for full-on Superman with a cape. The woman can go as Wonder Woman or Lois Lane. Of course, the latter is technically more fitting with the movie’s plot.
7. Flight Attendant and Pilot
While this one isn’t as grand of an approach as dressing as superheroes, it’s a great couple’s costume combo. And who says you can’t go to Comic-Con as a background character?
As an added benefit, the outfits are affordable and easy to put on, so it’s an excellent hassle-free option for minimalistic couples. With this look, you can go retro, sexy, or classic. This will be even cuter if you’re in a team with two women!
8. Pikachu & Ash
If you and your other half are into Pokemon, why not go as Pikachu and his trainer, Ash?
You don’t have to wear a vast mascot costume, but you can! A simple yellow and black outfit, Pikachu ears, and tail accessories will usually get the job done. For Ash, the tell-tale vest and hat combo, along with a few Poke balls, will be all it takes to make your character clear.
9. Dalmatian and Cruella de Vil
If you and your SO are fans of the movie 101 Dalmatians, you could go as a dalmatian and Cruella de Vil. This is yet another option that will give you low-cost and easy-to-wear costumes.
Be creative! Just because Cruella is a woman doesn’t mean you can’t gender-bend. This is very popular at Comic-Con!
10. Toy Story Characters
While Jessie and Woody are the two most prominent characters that come to mind when thinking of a couple’s costumes, you could also go with any of the other excellent toy stories characters like Buzz Lightyear and Little Bo Beep.
I hope you’ve found this list helpful! However, don’t forget that there are probably plenty of great ideas in your imagination. Now that you’ve got a bit of inspiration to start with, you should have a brainstorming session with your partner to see if you can think up any unique ideas. Don’t forget they can double as Halloween costumes this year.
Have fun at Comic-Con!
