Another classic couple’s costume idea comes from the holiday favorite, A Christmas Story. Ralphie’s old man loved that lamp he won in a contest, and since then it’s become an icon of the Christmas season. The “major award” was shipped to him in a box marked FRAGILE and his comical mispronunciation of the word has become a part of the lexicon, almost everyone recognizes it! If you are looking to humor a crowd, the leg lamp costume and FRAGILE box should do the trick.

Pair this Minion costume and Gru costume together, and you’ll be a pair of truly despicable characters for your couples theme. In fact, you’ll probably be ready to pull off a major heist at your big Halloween get-together.
