Comic Book Characters is a great nostalgic fancy dress theme. Comics are dying out now but I remember waiting for Saturday morning to arrive as I would get my weekly comic ‘Misty’, nobody here has ever heard of it, but I loved it. So what comic did you get?
A lot of our traditional superhero costumes started their lives in a comic book and this also gives a whole range of costumes that would be a great couples costume idea. I also remember my brothers having a comic, I think called Scoot or Scoop, I am sure it was based on football, so if you are not so keen on dressing up in a fancy dress costume, you could also just wear a football kit.
Our costume themes and ideas has got some great Comic Book Character Ideas and it is also worth looking at our superheroes costume ideas section as well, there will be some overlap but you may get some costume inspiration
