Top 10 Halloween Costume Ideas For Lesbian Couples

Are you looking for recognizable lesbian costumes for you and your girlfriend?

Here’s a list of unmistakable costumes to try out this year.

10. Abbi and Ilana

Abbi and Ilana

Comedy Central’s hit television show, Broad City, portrays an eccentric bisexual character and her equally engaging best friend. Though these two aren’t actually together, you can find scenes on them kissing on their youtube channel prior to the show’s release. This costume is a fun and easy way to act like a couple of broke, jewish party girls this Halloween. Also try out their fur-coat look from episode 1, or their dream-sequence music video get-up from episode 9 for a challenge.

9. Santana and Brittany

Though Glee’s prominent success has dwindled over the years, the matching cheerleader outfits worn by these leading ladies are both easy to make and easy to spot. If you want to relive those glory days in high school and find a nice couples costume, this is your match.

8. Sailor Uranus and Neptune

Sailor Uranus and Neptune

For the couple who sports a lipstick and androgynous pair, this pair is perfect. After the Sailor Moon revamp in 2014 (Sailor Moon Crystal), the internationally known sailor scouts and their short skirts are easily identifiable. While Sailor Neptune sports long, flowing turquoise hair, her partner adorns short blonde hair and both the scout uniform and a more masculine suit similar to Tuxedo Mask’s.

7. Korra and Asami

Korra and Asami

Who would have thought that Nickelodeon would reveal the protagonist of their Avatar sequel, The Legend of Korra, to be a lesbian? Well, they did. And that gives us a dynamic costume idea for you and your girlfriend.

6. Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy

Superheroes are making a comeback! With the 2016 releases of several new comic-related movies (Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War, etc.), superheroes and associated icons regularly walk the streets.

These two characters can be seen sleeping in the same bed in the New 52’s release of the Harley Quinn comics, and are always fun costumes to make or coordinate. Also try Harley and Power Girl, as the two recently got their own comic series with the popularity of the crossover in issue #13.

5. Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer

Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer

That’s right, an openly gay superhero sporting qualities similar to one of DC’s biggest icons. Since Batman is already a major star on the Hollywood stage, how about bringing his lesbian ex-military ally into the spotlight? And don’t forget her love interest, Detective Maggie Sawyer at her side.

4. Cameron and Mitchel

Cameron and Mitchel

A good gender-bender is always fun around Halloween, and if you’re looking for a simple yet recognizable costume, try out this married gay couple from Modern Family. If you can find a Vietnamese doll or willing young relative to walk around rolling her eyes at your ridiculous behavior, bring their adoptive daughter Lilly along too.

3. Amy and Karma

Amy and Karma

Though this costume may be harder to recognize by those who are unfamiliar with MTV’s new series, Faking It, it’s very easy to pull off. All you need is a doughnut shirt and an acoustic guitar and you’ve got this one in the bag. Or, fulfill your prom fantasies by wearing the king and queen’s crowns and sashes like this pair did in episode 2. But if you’re more of a Reagan fan, dressing up like an alternative DJ or cater-waiter can be fun too.

2. Xena and Gabrielle

Xena and Gabrielle

Forever a classic, no one can forget the sensation that was this Greek warrior princess, and her trusty sidekick. Especially when their sexualities were finally questioned in the finale of the 6 season series.

1. Piper and Alex

Piper and Alex

Or pretty much any other couple in Orange is the New Black. After the major popularity of the show’s third season this year, anyone who’s anyone will recognize this couple’s costume. Besides, it’s also really easy to make, putting it at the top of our list for popular Halloween costumes this year.

10 Simple ‘From Your Closet’ Halloween Costumes That Every Lesbian Can Pull Off With Ease

If there is one holiday the gay men beat us at, it’s Halloween. They win for two reasons: First, because they’re willing to spend a lot of precious hours and dollars on something extravagant, sparkly, and beautiful. Secondly, because if they don’t want to put effort into anything they can just wear a jock-strap and go as some sort of professional athlete.

In an effort to help the ladies who love ladies out there, I have compiled a list of costumes that you can assemble mostly from your closet (or your girlfriend’s if you’re lucky enough to have one). And don’t worry; they aren’t the default trucker, cowgirl, and/or lumberjack that we’ve all done last minute.

1. The Dude

From Your Closet: A white v-neck tee, sandals, sunglasses, and plaid board shorts.

You Might Have To Get: A bathrobe


2. Kim Possible

From Your Closet: Cargo pants (I know they’re in the closet somewhere, probably next to your first college girlfriend), black shirt, and gloves.

Tip: Say, “What’s the sitch?” into your cell phone all night.



3. Lara Croft

Even if you don’t have big boobs, this is an easy and fun one to do!

From Your Closet: There’s a ton of different versions of her so you can wear dark or khaki shorts or pants, a black tank top, and combat boots. Throw your hair in a braid or let your girlfriend do it as a fun bonding experience.

You Might Have To Get: Some fake guns if they’re allowed at the party you’re attending.


4. Hey Arnold

From Your Closet: Red flannel, green sweater, jeans, and a baseball cap.

Tip: Also a great couple costume if your lady friend has a pink dress and a uni-brow.


5. Army Pants and Flip-Flops Girl from Mean Girls

From Your Closet: Army pants and flip-flops.

If anyone asks what you are, just say:


6. Francine from Arthur

From Your Closet: Red sweatshirt, jeans, and red chucks.

You Might Have To Get: A couple yellow barrettes, unless you already rock those.


7. Sporty Spice

From Your Closet: Sports bra, track pants, and sneakers. Bonus points if you already have the armband tattoo.

It’s never out of style to spice up your life!


8. Katniss Everdeen

From Your Closet: Cargo pants, dark v-neck, combat boots, and brown leather jacket (if you have one).

You Might Have To Get: Bow, arrows, and the ability to kick-ass.


9. John Bender AKA “The Criminal”

From Your Closet: White t-shirt, red flannel, jean jacket, grey jeans, and black boots. It’s also a great touch to cut the fingers off an old pair of gloves.

Optional Accessories: Molly Ringwald and a bad attitude.


10. Pillow Princess

From Your (Linen) Closet: An old pillowcase and tiara.

Instructions: Cut a hole in the pillowcase for your arms and legs. Then, place the tiara on your head. For added length, use a body pillowcase.

Tip: Don’t tell your girlfriend you are going as her.



If all else fails, paint yourself a deep blue and go as an Indigo Girl.
