Devil & Angel Duo

Trick-or-treating is just hours away, and many people still have not chosen their costumes. Luckily, that does not have to be so difficult! Here are eight quick and easy Halloween costume ideas you can do by yourself, with a partner, or with a group.

Devil & Angel Duo

For this classic partner costume, designate one person to be an angel and the other to be a devil.  Have the angel wear all white (white top and pants, white dress, etc.) and the other wear all red (red top and pants/skirt, red dress, etc.). To top it off, purchase a halo for the angel and devil horns for the devil from a party or Halloween store.

Winnie the Pooh and Piglet Duo

This less common partner costume idea is both cute and simple. The person who is going to be Winnie should wear a yellow top and red bottoms, and the person who is going to be Piglet should wear all hot pink. Buy Winnie the Pooh ears and Piglet ears off of Amazon or at a Halloween store, and your costume will be all done!


This may be one of the easiest costumes ever because all you need could be found in your closet! Wear a button up, plaid shirt and put on a pair of jean overalls over it. To enhance the look, wear a cowboy or farmer hat and cowboy boots.

When Life Gives You Lemons

For this humorous and punny costume, all you have to do is wear a white top with the word “life” written on it in sharpie. Carry around a bag of lemons and hand them to people, and you’ve got your unique and creative costume!

Rosie the Riveter

With the growth of feminism among young people, this female empowerment inspired costume has become more and more popular. Wear a blue, short sleeve, and buttoned up top with any type of long pants, and tie a red bandanna around your head.

Superman (Clark Kent)

Should you be Superman or should you be Clark Kent? Well, who said you have to choose one? Wear a Superman t-shirt under a button up dress shirt with the first few buttons undone. Put on professional dress pants, black rimmed glasses, and a name tag that says Clark Kent.

M&M Group Costume

This DIY costume has grown in popularity over the past few years, but that’s not very surprising because it’s both fun  and easy. Designate an M&M color to each person in your group- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, brown- and purchase a plain t-shirt of that color. Hot glue a large “m” made of white felt onto the center of the shirt. Pair it with colored leggings or any type of regular bottoms. If you want to go all out, purchase your specific color tutu and socks from a party store. 

Frat Boys Group Costume

Everything you need for this fun costume could probably be found in your house. You could do this as a group or on your own, and all you have to do is wear a men’s button up dress top, jeans or leggings, sunglasses, and a baseball cap to become a frat boy for the day.
