What’s better than dressing up in your own Halloween costume? Having someone else to match you, of course. While coordinating couples’ costumes are popular for spooky season, we also love duo Halloween costumes for non-couple parties of two, and thanks to pop culture’s biggest onscreen hits, there’s plenty of inspiration out there for two-person costume ideas.
For Halloween this year, we have you and your best friend, sibling, or roommate covered with the best costumes that channel iconic duos from movies and TV shows. Maybe you’re both obsessed with famous pairs from the ’90s like Will Smith and Carlton Banks from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” or Cher and Dionne from “Clueless.” Or perhaps you’re fans of more recent onscreen besties like Anna and Maya from “Pen15” or Rue and Jules from “Euphoria.” Whatever your preference, our collection of two-person Halloween costumes has something for everyone, and most options are easy to DIY at the last minute using items you may already have in your closet at home.
From a wide range of old-school movies to brand-new TV shows, these duo costumes are the perfect mix of pop culture hotshots and nostalgic favorites. Check out our 34 best ideas ahead, and if your friend crew has an additional person, our guide to costume ideas for groups of three may be more helpful.
