From the 1992 black-comedy fantasy that plays out a hilariously desperate battle against aging, ‘Death Becomes Her’ is the perfect duo costume for a diva and her catty diva friend. These undead frenemies might not always be youthful, but they’ll always have a little bit of fight in them.

Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE! Et voilà, costume sorted. But in all seriousness, pulling this Tim Burton stylised duo costume off would be a riot - no marriage required, of course.

Barbie and Ken

She’s everything, and he’s just Ken. The duo that’ll be rolling down the streets in their neon leotards and sparkling rollerblades this Halloween is the one and only (mass produced), Barbie and Ken.
