The best couple costumes of 2020 find inspiration in the TV that kept us streaming, the music that made us move and more. This year has been scary enough as it is, so many creative couples' costumes encourage people to celebrate safely with the ones they love. From hilarious couples costumes to brand new couples costumes ideas, this list will give you tons of options this Halloween.
Tiger King stars Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic are a perfect costume for a couple that loves to hate each other, while dressing up as David and Patrick from Schitt's Creek are ideal for a pair of opposites deeply in love. There are even creative costumes like Bob Ross and one of his paintings or throwback ideas like Tony and Carmella Soprano on this list. If superheroes are more your style, Sister Night and Dr. Manhattan are a great costume for a (super)power couple.
Vote up the most dynamic duos for 2020's Halloween couples costumes.
