Guess what, Gleeksters? Couple’s Costumes aren’t just for Halloween anymore! Gleek is happy to announce that if you’re in a relationship, you don’t have to impress anyone outside your relationship. If you both wanna dress up in specific themed costumes, congratulations: you’re dorks. And dorks don’t need to be hemmed in by a specific date.
Oh, it’s Tuesday, you say? Sounds like a perfect excuse for a Couple’s Costume Night!
So whether it’s Halloween, President’s Day, or just some random Tuesday, Gleek has some Couple’s Costume ideas just for you and your special someone.
RIDLEY SCOTT RUDIN
This is the perfect couple’s costume for that older white gay couple who’s into culture and wants everyone to know it. One of you will spend the evening talking about how you resurrected the Alien franchise, while your partner spouts Broadway trivia like “Nathan Lane won his first Tony for my production of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum!” Separate, you’re Ridley Scott and Scott Rudin. Together you’re Ridley Scott Rudin.
KAVALIER & CLAY
When people see your costume, they might think you’re “two random white guys.” Challenge them to decipher WHICH two random white guys! They’ll never figure out you’re the main characters from Michael Chabon’s seminal novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.
Are you part of an MMF throuple? That doesn’t mean you can’t all get in on the couple’s costume action! Send the world a message about your versatility by dressing up as sporks, the most versatile utensil in your silverware drawer.
KERI RUSSELL CROWE
There’s no thematic reason why one of you dressed as Keri Russell and one of you dressed as Russell Crowe, but maybe one day they’ll make a movie together and you can post pictures from the night you guys dressed up as Keri Russell Crowe and you’ll look so prescient. Here’s hoping!
LEA MICHEL(L)E PFEIFFER
One of you is super outgoing to an annoying degree, your partner is mysterious and reclusive to an annoying degree. You’re both gay icons. Together, you’re Lea Michel(l)e Pfeiffer. Yas, qween.
STATUE OF DAVID AND VENUS DE MILO
This is the perfect couple’s costume for introvert-extrovert couples. You get to sound smart and talk about art, and also you both get to be naked. Fun! Scandalous! But if you don’t want to talk to someone, you can just freeze in place for a very long time. Because you’re statues!
THAT COUPLE THAT ACCIDENTALLY LEFT THE HOUSE WEARING THEIR SEX GEAR
Did you accidentally leave the house wearing your sex gear? No worries! Just tell people you’re dressed up as a Couple That Accidentally Left The House Wearing Their Sex Gear and it’ll seem like you planned to accidentally leave the house wearing your sex gear. Enjoy your evening!
