Dressing up with a partner can be incredibly fun, and can allow for a lot more imagination. But sometimes, the results are just far too awkward for words. 

Let me just start off by say these yipyip costumes (apparently that's what those buggers from Sesame Street are called!) are really frickin' cooooool...

I'm normally not one for couple costumes, myself. Halloween's one of my favorite holidays, so a lot of the time I want total costume control. But I think it's something that every couple should try at least once, just for funsies. My boyfriend and I have definitely tossed around the idea of dressing up as Gomez and Morticia Addams for Halloween, but nothing's been determined yet. The idea of dressing up as  something classy with my partner is really nice. And following that idea can produce some really great results...

But then again, couple costumes can turn out really awful and awkward too:

Yeeeeah, NO. But I assembled both the best and worst I could find for your own personal inspiration, Lovelies. Enjoy! And please, tell us your stories of participating in this Halloween tradition! Just so I know what to do if my boyfriend changes is mind and proposes we go as Pac-Men...

Have you ever worn a couples-themed costume? Any advice for people thinking of doing this?
