We’ve all seen your plugs and outlets, your peanut butters and jellies, your Jack Skellingtons and Sallies, your Marios and Luigis, your Fred and Wilma Flintstones – but, how often do you see a deer and headlights, or a Bob Ross and Canvas?

The omnipotent internet giant Amazon is brimming with everything you need to rock this Halloween with your partner in crime. Of course, they offer the classics, like Gomez and Morticia Addams, but there are many sellers who provide costumes that are nothing like your mom or dad’s vampire-getup from the ’80’s.


Dynamite Duos

“Dress up as everyone’s favorite art instructor, Bob Ross! With his soft voice & happy little trees, he brought lots of joy to painting! Now you can bring lots of joy to your next party with this couple’s costume! Includes wig, paint palette, paintbrush and canvas with painting.”

Nothin’ says, “I got you, babe,” like dressing up as Sonny and Cher together.

If anyone asks why you and your partner decided to dress up as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald this year, just blame it on the crazy pills.

Foodie Fun

Beer and Pizza

“It’s not delivery, it’s just you! Tell your friends you’ll bring the pizza and disappoint them showing up in a Supreme Pizza costume. This Boo! Inc. costume is the cheesiest, crispiest slice of golden brown pizza out there, featuring pepperoni and red onion as well as jalapeño and Sriracha sauce for that extra kick of flavor.”

Rocking a soap and loofah costume lets everyone know you’re in a, “you scrub my back, I scrub yours,” relationship.

Toothbrush and Toothpaste

“This set includes a toothbrush costume and a toothpaste costume. Costume sets are unisex and one size fits most adults and teens.”

A few years back, a dental hygienist told me she was going to a Halloween party as “Greek yogurt.” Her costume consisted of a bedsheet fashioned into a toga with the word “YOGURT” written on it in permanent marker.

I would’ve been much more impressed if she told me she were going as a toothbrush or a tube of toothpaste.

Poop and Toilet Paper

I guess you can’t “step in it” if you are, well, “it…” Still, make sure you watch where you step as you’re carousing the town on Halloween night!

Pointing and OK Emojis

“These two costumes together form a certain well-known gesture that should be very popular at parties and at halloween. Includes 2 costumes in bag – one pointer costume and one ok costume. One size fits most up to 6′ /200lbs.”

Whatcha pointing at – oh, OK.

Milk Man and ’40’s Housewife

“Look out, here comes a very special delivery! The Milk Man and 40s Mom Couples Costume will have you and your partner dressed in classic 40s gear, with a sweet surprise to show off. The Milk Man costume features a white milk man’s hat, a black bow tie, a milk bottle prop, and a name tag to let everyone know who you are. A black, polka-dotted apron reads “Home Sweet Home” across the abdomen to show off her growing bum!”

Ain’t no shame in showin’ up with the milk man.

In Conclusion

Thanks to Amazon, Halloween is no longer hindered by last-minute trips to every single big box store in a 20 mile radius in search of a costume. Now, you can kick back and find the perfect getup with the luxury of free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime members.

However, finding a Halloween costume that truly captures the aura of your relationship remains tricky, even in 2019. Which really represent you? The milk man and and housewife, or the toilet paper and poo?
