When it comes to Halloween, I'm what most people would refer to as "extra." And to them, I say: extra cute, extra scary, and extra incredible! There's nothing I enjoy more during spooky season than dressing up in a Halloween costume except for dressing up in a group. However, most of my friends (or people in general) aren't exactly on my Halloween costume level, which is why I recruit my dog, Rory, every year. So, if you've been yearning to be in a couple's costume but find yourself without a couple, fear not. These costumes got me through my single years so well that I barely even missed having another human in the mix. That's because while a pet costume on its own is wildly adorable (even if they hate it, and oh, Rory does), but paired with your own costume, it's an unbeatable win.
From iconic pairs like a witch and her black cat to favorite fictional characters like Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons, I've compiled my favorite Halloween couples costumes of me and Rory to help inspire you. Feel free to recreate the costumes exactly, or do your own riff. As I always say, there's no wrong way to be in a couple's costume with your pet. But rest assured, these seven costumes will make you and your best pal the talk of social media and every Halloween party.
