Fun Couples Costume Ideas

in Costume

Couples Costumes are a great bonding chance for couples, and reflect many of the unique personality traits of the couple themselves. Couples costumes can be funny, historic, scary, or romantic. When standing in the presence of a couple dressed in theme, the power of the bond between the couple is also undeniable. A couples costume is evidence that two like-minded individuals held preference to dressing similarly as opposed to making individual costume statements.

Couples costumes are also the perfect accessory to any costume. An Oktoberfest woman's costume makes more sense when posed beside her Oktoberfest Guy dressed in lederhosen and suspenders. The sexy Princess Leia Slave costume belongs with Luke Skywalker, and a Harem costume is completed by a Royal Sultan costume.

Some costumes do not belong without the other half, like the adult Plug and Socket costume, or the King and Queen of Hearts costumes, which are very popular this year. If Wilma Flintstone shows up without her Fred, questions will be posed all evening as to "Where's Fred?"

Some costume themes can be very creative, with couples creating their own costume themes like football players with divas, or a cop with an inmate. The most important factor in pulling off a great theme costume is to own the costume and the characters. Role playing is the best part of dressing in costume, and is easier when complemented by a partner.

Dressing in matching fashion for a theme party or event can be healthy for a relationship. Many relationships begin or improve with interpersonal attraction. It is easier for people to relate to and bond with people they feel emotionally and physically connected to. Couples costumes disguise physical differences and keep a couple united in appearance, as well as united in the temporary personality traits adopted through character choice. Women especially feed off of this connection, as women are more likely to feel an emotional connection from their mate's willingness to dress in theme, as well as to put on the costume and personality of the chosen characters. Studies show that women need more of a visual fantasy than men to become aroused, and couples costumes remind women all evening of the connection between the couple, as well as serving as a constant reminder that they are role playing and letting loose together.

The selection of costumes is endless, and if the correct costumes are selected, they can be used time and again, from parties to the bedroom. Couples costumes keep couples alive and having fun!
