And the joy/pure misery of coming up with ideas is only doubled when you decide to go as a pair.
Well, fear not! Twitter has kindly come up with a complete list of bizarre and meme-worthy costume ideas for couples.
Admittedly some may be more conceptual than realistic but hey, what do you want from me? I’m trying my best. Back off!
We’ve picked out the best of the bunch below.
1.Angel and a grapefruit
Don’t forget to make the ungodly throat choking sound.

THAT SINK’S NOT BRACED!!!

5.One for all the lads to do together
6.Real Melania and Imposter Melania

8.Tyra Banks and Tiffany Richardson from 'America's Next Top Model'

Having a bag of furry dicks is essential for this one.
