Costume Party Invitations
Before we get to the costumes, choosing your invitation is the equivalent of the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party, even a casual party!

Instead of invitations …
Simply present your date with a pack of Doublemint gum. And if you you want to make a big splash to attract a great crowd, throw bags and bags of Dubble Bubble on your favorite fraternity and sorority lawns — a fun and clever way to remind everyone to line up their “double,” pick out their costumes, and get ready to party!

The United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality for all. At last, #LoveWins.
Between Burning Man and Coachella, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. And these festivals are quite the spectacle, with people dressing up in costumes to beat the summer heat while looking fashionably outrageous. Burning Man’s fashion was even featured in an article in the New York Times! We love the idea of incorporating festival fashion into a Halloween costume

Cute for her. Wearable for him.
Butterfly & Butterfly Catcher
I like the butterfly catcher idea so much did a bit of research and basically found no off the rack costumes except this bushman costume in very limited sizes
So even better — create your own butterfly catcher costume. Have your man wear a khaki shirt and/or safari vest, khaki shorts, safari, bushman hat or boonie hat, hiking boots, and carry a butterfly net. If you don't care for this butterfly costume, there are lots more options to choose from!
We are obsessed with these sexy for her, easy for him couples flamingo costumes! Thank you Izzy for the inspiration!

The Couple that Plays Together, Stays Together
For this look any matching soccer uniforms will work. For her — just roll the sleeves and tie the shirt so it is shorter or better yet, cut the both the length and the sleeves with pinking sheers.

Cute for Her, T-Shirts for Him
If you are encountering extreme resistance, pair just about any female costume with a matching t-shirt or hoody for him.
A few examples

Sexy for her. Sexy for him.
His & Her Board Game Costumes
Costumes. Simple. Cheap.
Graffiti Costumes …
A simple white unisex t-shirt worn either with jeans or with white shorts or sweatpants work as a simple fashion forward costume. Just take fabric markers or even cans of spray paint (the shirts will be a little stiff if you spray them) and “tag” the shirts with just about anything you like.
