When it comes to Halloween costumes, sometimes two can be more fun than one! So grab a friend or significant other and convince them to be part of your Halloween duo. If these cute costume ideas don’t convince you to pair off, we don’t know what will!



Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen from "Game of Thrones"

While these two characters have been GOT favorites for a while, this season marked the first time they met in person — and it was certainly worth waiting for! Now that the characters have joined forces, this powerful duo makes the perfect couple’s costume.

There are a number of really good costumes from the story of Peter Pan.
