DC Superheroes Halloween Costumes for Couples
Dress up as your favorite superheroes from the DC universe this Halloween. I wanted to do Marvel superhero costumes for couples too but good-looking ones are harder to find.

Man of steel from Planet Krypton and Goddess of Love and War of the Amazonian people. Dress up as two of the founding members of the Justice League. Superman and Wonder Woman aren’t exactly in a romantic relationship, but they did have a few romantic moments.
2. Batman and Catwoman
Being stuck in never-ending crime fighting and world saving, Batman and Catwoman have a pretty complicated romantic history. Despite all the conflicts, they’re a really hot couple though. Both of them are big fans of black and tight attire.

Vampire fangs are not included in these costume sets, so remember to get your own for added effects. Also, don’t miss out this awesome Halloween makeup tutorial video.
2. Zombie Couple
Zombies have been a movie-industry darling for the past decades. From Hollywood to Asia, Zombie movies are well received all over the world. And they’re popular for a good reason. Zombies are scary but they are not impossible to outrun, which means there’s always hope for survival, keeping your adrenaline pumping all the time.
If you decide to go with zombie costumes, add some fake blood to make yourself even scarier. You can either buy them from Amazon or make it yourself by following this fake blood recipe.
