Grab Bae & Get Ready For These Perfect TV Couples Costumes
Halloween is fast approaching, and you know what that means: it's time to start pondering your costume options. And if you're hoping to complete a couples costume that means double the work and shopping, so the clock is seriously ticking. If you and your partner turn to movies for inspiration, you'll simply have to choose between a wide array of Spandex and capes, because all Hollywood is essentially allowed to make these days are superhero movies. So would you like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) or Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Michelle, a.k.a. "M.J." (Zendaya)?
Television, on the other hand, couldn't have more to offer you when it comes to couples costume inspiration. There are serious dramas like Handmaid's Tale and Westworld to whet your appetite if you're looking for some serious Halloween artistry, along with a host of Riverdale pairings to help you put the "pop" in pop culture costume.
To help you figure out which TV-inspired couples costume is right for you, we picked out some of our own favorites. Keep reading to see which one you'll want to sport come October 31. You should probably start scouting the perfect place to put that Best Couple's Costume award now.
Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been a tried and true Halloween couples costume since they got together circa 2012. But, it's time to give Kim's little sister Khloé the holiday spotlight for once. Koko's new relationship has been consistent fodder for KUWTK season 14, after all.
To get your Khlostan on, one half of the couple needs to rock traditional Khloé K. gear, which usually boils down to high-waisted jeans, your sexiest bodysuit, blonde waves, and a lot of bronzer. Clearly, from the accompanying picture, a liberal amount of fur is also encouraged.
A Tristan costume is easy since the other half of the duo simple needs one of the Cleveland Cavaliers player's jerseys.

Rachel Lindsay & Cooper The Dog Of The Bachelorette
If you weren’t crazy about Nick’s time as the Bachelor, but did love watching Rachel Lindsay’s journey toward love, let her season of The Bachelorette guide your Halloween planning.
Like Nick’s time on The Bachelor, the eventual winner wasn’t truly the best part of the season. That honor goes to Rachel’s perfect dog, Cooper. Cooper is the true star of her season, and I won’t hear anything else.
Remind people of this fact by dressing like the doggy-dog mom duo. For Rachel, all you need is a gorgeous red dress (san Puritanical sleeves like the Handmaid’s Tale guide), wide smile, and a take-no-B.S. personality. For Cooper, buy doggy ears and a fake cast for your right arm. Remember, poor Cooper broke his toe before Bachelorette filming.
Betty Cooper & Veronica Lodge Of Riverdale
Okay, fine, these two aren’t technically a couple. But, they did kiss that one time! And, this a truly perfect couples costume, so it’s going on the list, darnit.
A Beronica costume is a lovely play on opposites, much like the Kevin and Joaquin idea. For Betty, you would need a cute ponytail, a smart cardigan set, and a 1950’s-inspired A-line skirt. For Veronica, any club-ready little black dress is appropriate, paired with pearls and a seductive dark lip.
Honestly, this is what Instagram dreams are made of.
