Couples Fancy Dress Costume ideas

After our observations yesterday about the male of the species getting a little more adventurous when itIdeas Fancy Dress Couples comes to wearing a fancy dress costume, we thought we would spend a little time on the complexities of Couples costumes.

It’s really a question of the relationship. In the true Mr & Mrs field, we’ve got The Flintstones and the Rubbles, Shrek and Fiona, Frankenstein and Bride (they were made for each other) and Dracula and his Bride (or consort) – even Mr and Mrs Potato Head! If you’re aiming for the ‘just good friends’ approach, it’s the complementary costumes that can be useful – famous couples like Robin Hood and Maid Marian, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and Mary Poppins and Bert the Chimney Sweep, and there can also be less obvious matches such as Miss Muffet and a Spider, a Ringmaster/mistress and a Lion/Tiger and a Rabbit/Bunny Girl and a carrot!

You may need a same sex couple, so don’t forget Batman & Robin (or The Joker), Noddy & Big Ears to give you just a couple of ideas.

  • Captain & Sailor – Male and female versions are available for both

Couple Costume Ideas

Today, we aim to give you lots of couple costume ideas as this is something we are asked for time and time again…Couple Costume Ideas

We were mentioning the legendary Marilyn Monroe earlier in the week, and today we celebrate the birthday of one of the celebrity icons of our time, Angelina Jolie, who was born in 1975. Although Angelina, like Marilyn had a somewhat troubled early life, she has now established herself in a number of roles, both on and off the movie screen. On screen she hashad a number of roles but has made her mark as an action heroine, most notably as Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, but more recently as Evelyn Salt (the role she ‘took over’ from Tom Cruise). She was also very active in ‘Mr & Mrs’, where her relationship with Brad Pitt started. Off-screen, she now has a family with Brad, and to many they arguably are the world’s most famous celebrity couple, also devoting much time to humanitarian and charity work.  So, today we look at some couple costume ideas, now a lot of ideas can be found on our other couple fancy dress ideas, so here we will try and give you a few more, although some will be repeated.

Couples Fancy Dress Costume Ideas

Today’s Fancy Dress Theme is couples – aah how romantic!

Ladies Juliet Fancy Dress

Ladies Juliet Fancy Dress

We mentioned the 80’s a few days ago and of course Julia Roberts who was born on October 28th 1967, had her first teenage debut in 1988 in the film ‘Mystic Pizza’.  However, probably her most popular role to date is that of Vivian Ward in the 1990 romantic film ‘Pretty Woman’. We might suggest that Romantic Couples could be the theme today. But, if the role of a ‘ho’ is not for you, there are hundreds of others we could mention. For a start there is the original fairy tale behind the Pretty Woman theme; Cinderella and her Prince Charming, or other popular pantomime and literary characters such as Romeo and Juliet or Heathcliff and Cathy from ‘Wuthering Heights’.

 Alternatively you might choose to look at Films and Musicals which are often peppered with Romance, such as Rhett Butler and Scarlet O’Hara from ‘Gone with the Wind’ (we stock some lovely costumes that are ideal for a Scarlett O’Hara costume).; or Christine and the Phantom of the Opera, or Princess Fiona and Shrek. 

 History and mythology also have some great romantic couples, from Cleopatra and Mark Anthony to Helen of Troy and Paris, to Lancelot and Guinevere; Maid Marian and Robin Hood to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the list is endless.  We’re sure you will have some great ideas for this theme and naturally Props ’n’ Frocks is the place to help you make your dreams come true.
