1. Daria and Jane
Daria and Jane are the perfect best friends, but they would be better girlfriends. You could complain about life in general together, and not talking to anyone would just be part of your costume!
2. Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin
Dream team, amirite? Hillary gets to wear a PANTSUIT, and Sarah gets to have an annoying accent!
3. Betty and Veronica
These girls are a fantasy couple, and by that, I mean be prepared to see some childhood-ruining surprises if you search the “Betty and Veronica” tab on Tumblr. One of you gets to be sickly sweet and optimistic, one of you gets to be snobbish and rude. And you both get to decide to leave Archie alone and go for each other instead.
4. Ann Coulter and Rachel Maddow
If you don’t mind play-hating each other for photo ops, this is a hilarious costume. It would be fun, surprising, and totally weird. No one would see it coming. You both have to perfect a variety of the bitchface, though.
5. Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliott
If only, if only. One of you gets to dress entirely in spandex, the other gets to dress entirely in sweats. What could be more perfect? Also, you could definitely do competing performances.
6. Bruce and Kris Jenner
Look, they already look like lesbians. Especially Bruce Jenner. Especially with his plastic surgery. Whoever’s Bruce can complain all night about being left out, and whoever’s Kris can berate him about it constantly.
7. Shawn Hunter and Cory Matthews
The best bromance ever is a great couple’s costume for two butch girls. One of you definitely has a leather jacket, and the other definitely owns a flannel. Plus: Doc Martens and flippy hair!
8. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
Peter Pan is the ultimate comfy, cozy outfit, and you can pretend you’re Mary Martin! Tinkerbell gets to get decked out in head-to-toe glitter. But please, don’t try to fly.
9. Ellen and Portia
Really? Are you really considering this? IT’S TOO EASY. Ellen’s outfit is probably your go-to daily outfit, let’s be honest. But, if you have a Portia, it’s pretty great.
10. Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae
THEY ARE PERFECT. Literally. Stellar. This costume is for two divas who collaborate rather than compete — the best kinds of divas, tbh. Plus, if you have a dog for Erykah to walk around, it makes it even better.
11. Ciara and Nicki Minaj
Ciara’s music video for “I’m Out” was perfect, mostly because of the GIF pictured above. It also makes this costume super easy. You can dress alike and it won’t be a mistake this time! Perfect costume if you have a lot of mesh clothing. Hey, I don’t know your life.
For both of you:
12. Graham and Megan
This story will forever be iconic. It’s about a girl understanding her sexuality. It’s also the story that made you fall desperately in love with Clea DuVall and Natasha Lyonne. So throw on an outfit of entirely pink, look entirely uncomfortable, and rebel against conventions.
For both of you:
13. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Especially if you’re hosting a Halloween party, because, as we have learned, they’re the most perfect hosts ever. So dress up as them hosting the Golden Globes and be your silly, charming selves the whole night. Plus, seeing Amy and Tina as a couple will make everyone at your party swoon.
14. Pam and Tara
Because why wouldn’t you want to go as lesbian vampires? Plus, this costume begs for leather and lace, so if you’re into that sort of thing, this is perfect for you. Especially if you’re into the dom/sub dynamic they have going on. No judgment here.
