Oh that time of year, fall is in the air, the leaves are beginning to turn and Halloween is just around the corner. With Halloween comes parties! Parties means costumes.
Which costume to choose can be a daunting task. Especially if you and your significant other choose to do couples costumes. How to choose. That is the question.
There is no wrong choice. It just depends on your taste or maybe the theme of the party. One big consideration is comfort. Nobody wants to be trapped in a stifling hot mask or costume head all night. Nor do you want something which makes it impossible to sit down. You also don’t want to spend an hour in the bathroom trying to undo your costume and then get it all done back up correctly. That can make for a long night.
There are so many ways to go. You can choose humorous, sexy, scary, classic, iconic or even historical. I suggest you step out of your comfort zone and choose something totally opposite of you. If you don’t feel like being opposites perhaps choosing the costume you think best showcases you as a couple is the way to go. Maybe you think your relationship is more like Beauty and the Beast than Romeo and Juliet. Go for it! It is Halloween, time to bring out the wild in you!
Here are ten great choices for Couples Costumes 2018. I hope you find the right choice for you.

A.A. Milne’s lovable characters make for perfect costume pairings. They can be worn by either sex, mix and match! You might choose the character that best fits your personality or the one that is least like you.
Winnie the Pooh is lovable, innocent, trusting and wise despite his limited knowledge.
Tigger is full of energy, adventurous and full of false bravado.
Piglet is timid, shy, nervous and often scared. He is also loyal and big hearted.
Eeyore is the gloomy one. He expects things to go badly and they usually do for the poor little donkey. But he never gives up and he is a loyal friend.
Which one suits you? Which one is your partner?
Choose one of these great costumes and you and your Silly Old Bear will be the hit of the party!
Winnie the Pooh costume includes jumpsuit with headpiece. Reviewers say it is great quality and fun to wear. Think, think, think is this the costume for your bear?
I have to admit a fondness for Eeyore. He is my favorite Pooh character. His inability to keep his tail on and his relentless search for a house is endearing.
This men’s Eeyore Union Suit is perfect. Suit has full zipper and includes attached hood. Your feet are free for dancing!
If the lady wants to go as Eeyore, this is a great choice for her. Includes jumpsuit, character hood and tail that attaches with hook and loop.
Bouncing is what Tigger’s do best and you can bounce very well in this Unisex Tigger suit. One piece with character hood. Most reviewers give it 5 stars. “Perfect. Love it.” “Super Comfortable.”

Popeye & Olive Oyl
Another set of iconic characters that make a great choice for couples costumes are Popeye and Olive Oyl. Popeye the sailor man is devoted to flighty and unfaithful Olive. He gains the strength of ten men when eats a can of spinach.
Popeye and Olive are actually based on real life people. Elzie Segar introduced Popeye in a comic strip in 1929. He based the character on a person from his home town of Chester, Illinois. Frank Fiegel apparently also loved fight and smoked a pipe. Olive was based on a neighbor of Segar’s.
Popeye inspired children of the depression era to eat their spinach. Spinach became children’s third listed favorite food behind turkey and ice cream. Quite an accomplishment!
Embrace your flirty side and imagine yourself with a closet full of identical dresses and you can become Olive Oyl. She keeps two men constantly fighting over her in spite of her rather boyish figure and her refusal to choose between them.
Popeye is of course ever loyal and ever the gentleman. He never gives up on Olive.
This costume set includes everything you need to become the famous cartoon pair.
Popeye costume includes jumpsuit with shirt, belt, muscle arms and cap. Add a pipe and you are all set.
