Okay, I know Maverick has a love interest, but Goose is much more fun, in my opinion than Penny. This costume is form-fitting and designed for the ladies, so it’s the perfect addition to your partner’s Maverick flight suit from above. And if you’re more Maverick than Goose, that’s alright, too.

This is one of the easiest couple costumes out there, but it’s also one of my favorites! It’s just a tee, some gloves, and a little mask, but it gives immediate recognition and makes it look like you put a lot more work into it than you did. Great for a low-key, last-minute costume.

If You’re One of a Pair of Shoes}

  via Amazon  

What’s a better way to say “we go together” than showing up to a party as a pair of shoes? You could go a step further and dress your kiddo up as a sweet pair of socks. Or maybe a dog. Either way, you’ve got a family set or a just-for-parents situation.

If You’re a Little Spicy

Salt and pepper are kitchen staples. You shouldn’t cook anything without adding a dash of one or the other, or both, into it. This is a great costume for grandma and grandpa or for mom and dad. And if your little one is into Blues Clues, you can dress them up as Paprika for a full set.
