DIY halloween costume ideas for couples double stuffed OREO

I admit it, I am Halloween obsessed. I love coming up with costumes every year. Lucky for me, Alex is a great sport and totally willing to dress up for Halloween, so this year I’m sharing four easy DIY Halloween costume ideas for couples.

DIY Halloween Costumes Ideas for Couples


1. A Double Stuffed OREO

I mean, how can you not melt at the cuteness of the idea of being a double stuffed OREO. Basically, instead of just having an OREO cookie on your back and wearing white to be the middle- when you hug your partner you’ve got two ‘middles’ and have thus become a double stuffed OREO. It’s so cheesy, but I love it so much. We made our costume, the DIY is below, but this year I just found An oreo costume available for sale (and it’s under $50) so you can either DIY or buy one pre-made.

To make this costume you need:

To assemble:

  1. Cut a round circle out of the cardboard
  2. Spray paint or paint it black (both sides) and let dry
  3. Once dry, use white paint or chalk to draw on the OREO cookie details. I recommend chalk over paint since it goes on lighter looking more faded (like the impression on a real OREO) instead of being bright white.
  4. Use double sided tape (or tape loops) to attach it to your back. Depending on how secure you want it to be, and how much time you have, you can also create shoulder straps by punching holes in the cardboard OREO at the top and base on both sides and stringing through elastic to make a ‘backpack’ style cookie shape.


2. Ross & Rachel Get Married in Vegas

This costume could not be easier or quicker to make! Become Rachel & Ross from one of the most memorable TV moments with clothes you probably have at home and face paint. This is a 3 minute costume!

To make this costume you need:

To assemble:

  1. Once you’re dressed in the clothes, use your black face paint (I recommend this one since it mirrors the look of a sharpie) to create the Ross, whiskers and nose on Ross, and the mustache and goatee on Rachel.
  2. For the rest of Rachel’s makeup, think 90’s and go with a matte neutral-brown color. I’m wearing this lip liner and this lipstick and highly recommend them since they create the perfect “Rachel” shade!


3. Daenerys & Jon Snow… and her Starbucks Cup

Sure you could just be Daenerys & Jon Snow… but the uniqueness of adding the Starbucks cup that was spotted by Daenerys in a scene this season is a great way to make your costume more unique. and really play up one of this year’s most viral ‘dramas’. GoT fans were not happy about the misplaced cup!

You can’t read it well in these photos, but where the barista would normally write your name on your cup I wrote “Daenerys Targeryn, Mother of Dragons, Freer of the Chained, The Unburnt, Drinker of the PSL”.

To make this costume you need:


4. Betty & Jughead

Riverdale’s favorite duo, Betty & Jughead, are an easy last minute DIY Halloween costume for couples.

To make this costume you need:

For Jughead:

For Betty:

To assemble:

  1. For Jughead, you need to make the toque / beanie. Judghead’s beanie is shaped like a crown, so find a grey toque from the dollar store or a consignment store so you can cut it. Fold the edges down and simply cut triangles so when you flip it back up it has a crown shape.
  2. For Betty, she is the queen of the faux collar sweater, so be sure to find one. Luckily, these are really popular right now. You can find them in a ton of stores including Ardene & Forever 21.

Hope you enjoyed these DIY halloween costume ideas for couples!

      It’s such a great one! Plus the classic ‘betty’ outfit (jeans and a faux collar sweater) are items you can actually wear again and again this fall/winter.

    That Oreo costume is too cute! Now if only I can talk my husband into it, haha!

    I picked out favorites and let my husband choose. We are going as Ores. (Love that man!) The home made one looks way better than the store bought one. I hope ours comes out that cute. We are 60 and 63 years old. That’s ok, right?
