RelationTips with Jordan: Last-minute couples Halloween costumes

| Staff Writer

It’s that time of the year again: midterms. In the midst of your growing test anxiety and wondering whether or not you should drop out of college, you remember it’s also Halloween. Do you have a costume? No. If you’ve found yourself in this position, have no fear! I’m here to save you with a list of cute, last minute couples Halloween costumes.

Sandy and Danny from “Grease”
Is “Grease” one of the best movie musicals of our time? Yes. Are the two leads a couple? Yes. So naturally, my first couples costume suggestion is Sandy and Danny from “Grease.” All Danny needs is black jeans, a white T-shirt and a leather jacket, and all Sandy needs is a tight black outfit, and you’re ready for a night of Summer (Halloween?) Lovin’. Ps: It’s a bonus if you guys can sing.

Cowfolks
This simple costume only requires that you and your significant other have flannels, cowboy boots and cowboy hats. If you want it to be extra cute, you guys could wear matching flannels, and you’ll get to have a fun Halloween with the yee to your haw.

Party Animals
Go crazy, go stupid this Halloween as party animals! All you need to do is pair of animal masks with fancy clothes. Did someone say jungle fever?

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson
Yes, I am aware Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are no longer together, but for the purpose of Halloween this couples costume would slap. For Pete Davidson you just need trendy clothing, and for Ariana Grande you can channel your fierce alter ego with sky-high heels and the iconic high ponytail.

Chowder and Panini
Cartoon Network’s Chowder is one of the most iconic cartoons of our childhood and this is the hill I will die on. So Chowder and Panini would be a cute pair to dress as! All Chowder needs is a purple sweater, purple pants, and a matching hat. And Panini just wears a high ponytail and a yellow dress. Alexa, play “Panini” by Lil Nas X.

Gumball and Darwin
Did I watch too much Cartoon Network as a child? Yes. Which is why my next suggestion is Gumball and Darwin from “The Amazing World of Gumball.” Gumball wears a beige sweater and grey trousers; trousers are super in style right now, but if you don’t have a pair you can just wear jeans. And to dress as Darwin you literally just need to have green high tops. But to make it more clear who you are, you could add a predominantly orange outfit.

Babies
Dressing as a baby is perhaps one of my favorite Halloween costumes ever. All you need are matching onesies, and to make it even cuter you can get stuffed animals and pacifiers from the nearest grocery store. Have a happy Halloween, baby bears.

Donkey and Dragon from Shrek
Continuing our onesie theme, another couples costume idea is Donkey and Dragon! Just go to Target and get a dragon onesie and a donkey onesie (or a horse onesie, if they don’t have a donkey one) and you’re good to go! Childhood nostalgia evoked.

Mario and Luigi
Last but not least, we have Nintendo’s most iconic duo. For these costumes, wear matching overalls with a green sweater and hat combo for Luigi and a red sweater and hat combo for Mario.
