This lesbian couple is another perfect queer couples costume we’d recommend! These two characters have had so many different looks throughout the show that there are many styles to choose from, ideal for beginners in costume making or for expert cosplayers. One thing you will have to commit to though is a lot of facepaint!

Although this couple has been around every Halloween, we can’t help but put them on this list. With the recent news of Lady Gaga starring in next year’s Joker film, Joker: Folie à Deux, we are beyond excited to see her come to life as Harley Quinn! Filming starts later this year, but it’s a perfect time to imagine how Gaga would look as Harley in the movie, so get experimenting!

The Powerpuff Girls

This is another trio that can be done by our polyamorous audience! Each Powerpuff girl has her own unique personality so you can all choose a character that relates to you the most and then unite with your partners to fight the forces of evil!
