Halloween is right around the bend. And if you’re anything like me and my andro-hottie wife, you might find yourself scrambling a week before Halloween, looking for the perfect last-minute couple-costume! Don’t panic! I’ve got a few fun DIY ideas on this list! And, if you plan a little bit ahead, you can rock some of these other fairly simple andro/femme couple costume ideas! If you’re creative with a lamp shade or a make-up kit, I’ve got you covered too! I’ve even thrown in a couple of bunny-inspired costumes as an homage to our kick-a$$ bunny-loving Editor in Chief, Memoree Joelle!
The mainstream media doesn’t give us lesbians much to work with, so I’ve had to improvise quite a bit with this list! Fun tip: Add “Dead” to any of the ideas below… Like Dead Care Bears or Dead Bonnie and Clyde or… well, you get the point! A little fake blood goes a long way. Mwah ha ha ha.
1. Poussey and Soso from Orange Is The New Black
Scrubs and a wife-beater… Grab your Poussey and head out to the party!
2. Princess Leia & Hanna Solo
It wasn’t just the boys dreaming of that golden bikini!
3. Ralphie and the Leg Lamp
(or if you ladies wanna take your silly side out for a spin, Ralphie can sport the infamous bunny pajamas)
Throw on a lamp shade and give her a good excuse to feel your fishnet all night long (just the one)… And later she can turn you on!
4. Sandy and Danny from Grease
Your chills (and other things) will multiply in this sexy DIY costume!
5. Jessica and Roger Rabbit
A great reason to break out the bow tie collection. “I’m not bad I’m just drawn that way.”
6. Bonnie and Clyde
Another easy costume idea… If your honey is anything like mine, she’ll jump at the chance to bust out her best suit!
Who you gonna call? A stud hottie!
8. Wonder Woman and her Lasso-ed stud
She comes from an Island filled with only women. Lesbi honest… Our version is way more likely anyway.
9. Alice and Nivens McTwisp
Throw on those bunny ears! Don’t be late for this very important date!
10. Beetlejuice and Lydia
If you’re handy with make up, this costume is sure to make your Halloween day-O!
11. Care Bears
My wife and I made these costumes with a needle & thread, felt and stuffing. The little heart on her booty gives you the perfect excuse to stare…
12. Bella and Edwina in Breaking Dawn
The vampire couple is a go-to classic! Bonus lesbian points if you dress up your dog (or cat) as your vampire love-child.
So there you have it! Easy, sometimes sleazy 1…2…3-zy! Happy Halloween my lovely lez-ladies!
