    I believe costumes for couples are only half-fulfilled if you don't have a storyline, or some kind of gimmick that you act out together. Just standing there dressed as a pair of vegetables or something doesn't do it. For instance, we've done:

    Confederate Colonel Beauregard Pickett Frontage, my partner in authentic Southern uniform, and his "lovely and curvaceous" niece Magnolia, me in a full 5-hoop dress and sausage curl wig. We practiced our Southern accents for weeks, and rehearsed little routines we'd be playing out during the enormous Halloween party at our local gay club.

    I'd approach guys at the bar and start flirting with them, fluttering my white lace fan and all the rest of it. My "uncle" would then approach us, and in his great booming voice, declare:

    "Suh, unhand mah niece!"

    "But uncle Beauregard, Ah was jes visitin' with the nahce men folk heah."

    "Magnolia, you fohget yourself! You may leave the bar, if you please. This is no place for a lady. Suh, Ah may be forced to have words with you in private laytah!"

    The Colonel would then storm off, and we'd go play some other little scene elsewhere in the club. We had our friends in stitches, and many of them would try to really get into it with us themselves. Just total silliness & fun. I may tell about a similar thing we did another year in a second post.

    Oh, super! Per my remarks above, I see great possibilities for that duo to act out. "Joan" getting served a dead rat on a tray, just endless. Love it! icon_biggrin.gif

    Only possible drawback might be the clumsiness of the wheelchair, depending on the setting for the party. I always insist that a costume be wearable, practical & reasonably comfortable for the length of the entire party.

    The “Battling Bugs.” It was Halloween day, and we hadn’t made any costume plans, my partner getting fed up with my indecisiveness about going out or not, saying fuck it, we were staying home. About 2 PM I went out into the garage, foraging around for ideas. Eureka, inspiration!

    In the next 3 hours, I:
    - went to JC Penny and bought us both red pantyhose
    - went to a theatrical costume shop that also sold party wear & novelty items, where I got green grease paint, those springy bug antenna you wear on your head, and a giant flyswatter, nearly 3 feet long
    - borrowed a soft backpack from our next-door neighbors, that roughly matched one we had ourselves
    - created on our printer and printed out a label to paste over a huge, oversized can of Lysol aerosol spray we had at home, that read “BUG SPRAY” & “POISON” with skull & crossbones symbols

    Our costumes were the red pantyhose with our own matching white Jockey shorts worn outside over them, plain white socks and white gym shoes. For shirts we used his short-sleeve green hospital scrubs, tucked in and turned around backwards for a high collar. The green grease paint went on our faces and exposed hands & arms, the bug antenna on our heads.

    I stuffed the 2 soft backbacks with crumpled newspapers to fill them out but keep them light, and we put those on. Over them we draped two of my black nylon motorcycle covers that I had found in the garage, that had given me the idea, with their hems drawn up by bult-in elastic cords that ran all around them. The hump-backed cape effect was somewhat beetle-like.

    We rehearsed some lines I created, and off we went to our gay club a little after 6. There was a judging around 10, with a panel at a long table on the stage where we had our drag shows. Our turn came to step up and be questioned & judged. We spoke loudly so the watching audience of several hundred could hear us.

    “So what is your costume?” asked the chief judge. This was the annual routine that I had anticipated, and what I had based our little "skit" upon that we had prepared.

    “We are the Battling Bugs!” I answered.

    “No, we’re not!” my partner corrected me angrily. “We’re Infuriated Insects!”

    “Battling Bugs!” I snapped back in a rising, near-falsetto voice.

    “Infuriated Insects!” he shouted back at me.

    “You never let me choose!” I started to whine hysterically. “It’s all about you!” “You, you, you! It’s always what YOU want! Well, I have rights, too! I have…”

    At this point he produced that giant, oversized flyswatter, and started to slap me with it. The crowd was now roaring in laughter. I briefly half fell down, but got back up on my feet.

    “That’s it!” I screamed shrilly. “That’s the last time you ever do that to me!” I now produced the aerosol can from where I had it tucked in a backpack pouch, hidden under my “beetle” cape. I held it aloft for a moment, for the audience to see the label clearly.

    “Take that!” I yelled, and started to spray generally in his direction. The stage lights highlighted the mist perfectly. He grabbed his throat and started to choke. He staggered and fell down on the stage onto his back, his convulsing arms & legs in the air, like the “dying cockroach” pose Army Drill Sergeants sometimes made us trainees do, while I continued to spray. Finally he “died.”

    The audience was roaring, cheering & applauding, and so were the judges. We won the costume contest, and a few hundred dollars, recouping everything I'd spent and then some.

    Lesson: think out of the box, be creative, every object is a potential costume item & inspiration. And DO SOMETHING WITH IT, don’t just stand there like a lump. Create a costume with a STORY.

    I say you should go as smurfs. Hell if there was only one chick (smurfette) then you know most of them had to be gay, particularly Vanity-Smurf.
    I went as a smurf about 4 years back and I won a costume contest!

    Go as Merlin and Arthur. Since you are young you can pull it off. They are such a hot couple.

    I'd suggest going as either a Bailout Check or grabbing a black wig and reincarnating a sober Amy Winehouse ... just sayin' ...

    My ex and I used to go as a pair to every halloween party. We won several awards as:

    Sonny & Cher (he was Cher-much taller and skinny)
    Patsy & Eddi from Absolutely Fabulous
    King Kong (me) & The Empire State Building (him)
    Sweeney Todd & Mrs. Lovett
    The Corpse Bride and her groom

    Good times!

    Hm, Gay couple costumes -

    . You and your BF both wear a funky hot with maybe a black/white mask
    (wearing matchy matchy outfit) like 2 Phantoms of the night.

    . How's about a pair of fallen angels - white/black mixed color with wings and maybe short undies to show off your butt.

    . I'm thinking of either dressing up like Peter Pan or a Greek/Roman guy with a Toga, helmet something. ( 2 gay Roman/Gladiator?) maybe.

    . Last year, I wore like a swim/speedo short, with goggles and a swimming cap - yeah I know it's not an outfit. lol icon_redface.gificon_eek.gif

    Have fun dressing up eh.

    We don't celebrate halloween here in Australia, but I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed being part of it when I was in the states last year. Still to have it here would not be the same...
