16 BFF Halloween Costumes for the Ultimate Party Duo


Dressing up is always more fun with a bestie, isn't it? For people who don't have a significant other to dress up with, or those who have a significant other who just doesn't want to dress up, a best friend is another option that is just as much fun. Especially for those who are able to hit up some Halloween parties, because everyone knows it's always more fun with a partner-in-crime.

Matching costumes or just ones that complement each other really well are a great way to take a costume to the next level. It kind of adds to the creativity when there is more than one person involved. And who better than a best friend?

No one, that's who.

If two BFFs share a favorite movie or show, then this is the perfect opportunity to make that come to life. Some couple costume ideas can also be recreated for besties as well. There are so many fun ideas to consider. 

Here are 16 creative costume ideas made to make the best of friends stand out in a crowd. 

  • SpongeBob & Patrick


    There is no more iconic duo than these two! You can turn to Pinterest for ideas if you want to make your own costumes or you can purchase your SpongeBob ($50, spirithalloween.com) and Patrick ($43, walmart.com) outfits. Either way, this one will turn out super cute! 

  • Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum


    These Alice in Wonderland characters make adorable costumes ($40, halloweencostumes.com). The bright colors and nerdy charm would be so much fun to rock together!

  • Daria & Jane


    This BFF duo is an easy one to pull off. One of you can wear a red blazer ($23, amazon.com) while the other wears a green jacket ($20.50, amazon.com) and round glasses ($8.50, amazon.com). 

  • Brittany & Tiffany Wilson (Kevin & Marcus)


    White Chicks was a hilarious movie and this costume idea would also be super funny for those who have seen the film (which everyone should have). All you need are some heels, skirt/jacket sets, and fake badges ($12, amazon.com). And if you're not blond, don't forget the wigs! 

  • Cher & Dionne


    Recreate Cher Horowitz and Dionne Davenport's iconic plaid ensembles from the movie Clueless. You can buy Cher's yellow blazer and miniskirt as a set ($50, partycity.com). Dionne's specific outfits may be hard to find, but you could try a plaid skirt ($25, spirithalloween.com) with a red sweater vest over a white button-up. Add knee socks and you'll look totally clueless ... in a good way!

  • Bridesmaid Annie & Bride Lillian


    Recreate Kristin Wiig's character from the movie Bridesmaids with a hot-pink, ruffled bridesmaids dress like this Jessica Simpson strapless cocktail dress ($45, ebay.com). Or scour your local consignment shops. You can probably find a used wedding dress at a thrift shop for Maya Rudoph's character. But it also kind of looks like you could fake it with a white sheet and pink ribbon sash.

  • Chuck Noland & Wilson

    WILSON! If you've got a willing male pal, he can dress up as Castaway's Chuck Noland with a shaggy fake beard, a wig, and wrecked shorts. Don't forget the FedEx box. For Wilson, use a giant beach ball to make a papier-mâché volleyball. Cut out holes on the top and bottom for your head and legs, and paint on the handprint/face. 

  • Piper & Alex



    Who's your favorite Orange Is the New Black duo? Throw on some comfy tan prison uniforms ($30, spirithalloween.com) and you've got your girls.

  • Romy & Michelle


    Romy and Michele had the best '90s-girl party look -- and so can you, even if you can't pull off custom-made costumes like these on Peace Love Shea. Take a couple of cheap party dresses, like this pink babydoll ($58, rustyzipper.com) or this blue satin bodycon dress ($27, kmart.com), and accessorize with pink boa trim and a silver lamé star, respectively.

  • Tina Fey & Amy Poehler

    The ultimate SNL "Weekend Update" achor team has to be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. And it's a pretty simple costume to pull off. For Amy, shoulder-length blond hair and a gray pantsuit. For Tina, shoulder-length brown hair, dark-rimmed glasses, and a navy-blue pantsuit. And remember: Bitches get things done!

  • 2 Broke Girls


    Max and Caroline's waitress uniforms (23.99, amazon.com) will transform you into these 2 Broke Girls from Brooklyn. Bring some cupcakes along with you.

  • Minions


    Got a threesome? You could go as the three stars of the Minions movie. Kevin is the tall one, Stuart has one eye and a ukulele, and Bob is the little guy with a teddy bear. For Kevin and Bob try this Lady Minion costume (38.99, buycostumes.com), and for Stuart's one eye try this Minion mask ($5, amazon.com).

  • Thelma & Louise


    Look like this dangerous duo by wearing worn, ratty jeans with a couple of sleeveless T-shirts. For Louise, any dingy old white T-shirt with the sleeves cut off will do. Add a white straw cowboy hat and a blue neck kerchief. For Thelma find a black T-shirt with heavy metal/skull graphic and black sunglasses.

  • Laverne & Shirley

    Aww, check out the Today show's Savannah Guthrie as Laverne De Fazio and Natalie Morales as Shirley Feeney. You could pull this off with some vintage skirts and clinging sweaters with matching scarves. Remember to glue on Laverne's trademark monogram with string, felt, or ribbon.

  • Rockford Peaches


    With this sweet Rockford Peaches uniform ($44, amazon.com) you and your friends could be Dottie, Kit, Mae, or Doris from the movie A League of Their Own.

    Come play with us, Danny! Become the creepy Grady twins from The Shining with a pale blue dress like this Rubie's Women's Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful Doll Dress ($27, amazon.com), knee socks ($15, amazon.com), and black Mary Janes ($5, amazon.com). Swap out the sash for pale pink ribbon and splash on some fake blood.
