Here are 7 ideas for couples to dress up as costumes that are not conventional, but can make dressing up for Halloween even more fun.

Salt and Pepper shakers:
A simple yet clever costume for couples is to dress up as salt and pepper shakers.

A woman can just wear a red wig and her best business suit, and she will make the perfect partner to Tony Stark.
Ketchup and Mustard:
Ketchup and mustard go together, so they are the perfect choice for couples. If the couple of lacking in money for the real costume with the cone hats, then a simple red shirt and yellow shirt will do just as well.
