The only thing worse than overhearing couples using baby talk is overhearing couples discuss cheesy Halloween couples costumes. Dear couples: every “cute” idea you have right now is not cute. It’s also been done. Oh so many times. But that’s why I’m here! To help you think of a super timely and super creative couples costume that won’t make all the singles all the party want to yak.

Look, time is of the essence on this one. By the time next Halloween rolls around, Girl Meets World will be the top show on cable TV. Get ahead of the curve by doing this one in 2013. Have a rebellious friend who’s too cool to come up with a costume.Perfect, he’s your Shawn Hunter. How about an elderly gentlemen who lovingly stalked you throughout your childhood and college years? Even better, he’s your Feeny. (Feeeennnaaayyy!)
2. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey
There’s no better costume for a couple that’s half blonde and half brunette. And hilarious. That is the requirement of this costume. You best be ready to make some really funny jokes. Too simple for you? Fine! Dress up as Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope, just don’t forget to bring Adam Scott and your night cheese.
3. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar
Finally! A use for that long denim skirt and hair crimper you’ve hung on too since the ’90s. Just make sure to kidnap an elementary school before you head out for the evening. This costume’s nothing if you don’t have 400 children following you.
4. Taylor Swift and her cat Meredith
5. Kim Kardashian flaunting her pregnancy and Kim Kardashian flaunting her post-baby-body
So you and your S.O always fight over who flaunts it better? Well now you can put it to the test when you step out together in this must-have couples costume.
For all the people out there who are in serious relationships with cats, look no further for a costume than this one. It has everything you need. Assuming that all you need is a reason to dress in a high-waisted bikini and take your cat/boyfriend out on the town.
6. Miguel and the Woman She Jumped On
So you and your special someone are into costumes that come with a show. Well what better show is there than one that is death defying. One of you dresses in a white suit and the other one waits around for his/her inevitable demise.

Look, I’ll be honest with you. This costume might make some people yak. But it might make some people nostalgic for the time that a teen mom pretended that she made an innocent sex tape with a porn star that somehow leaked.
8. Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus
You’re right, you’re right this is a no. You can’t dress up as a father in love with his daughter. That would be wrong. Even if you both arrived on a wrecking ball with wheels and spent the night crashing into people and saying things like “My achy breaky heart don’t twerk if someone doesn’t grab us a drink from the bar.”
9. Tilda Swinton and her box
Personally, I can’t think of a better costume for a couple that likes to stay in. All it involves is one of you wearing a box and one of your sleeping on top of that box. Ta-dah!
10. Kanye West and Ben Affleck

These two buddies are the bestest of friends. Sure I’m basing that only on the Twitter feud that Kanye dragged Ben into last week, but I think we can all agree #NoDisrespecttoBenAffleck.
11. Max and Allison from Hocus Pocus
Nothing says I grew up in the ’90s quite like dressing up like Max and Allison. While the costume itself might seem vague, no one will second guess who you are after you start showing off your yabbos and lighting all the black candles.
