19 Beginner Couple Cosplay Ideas

Valentines Day is here, and soon the convention season will be returning, as it takes a break during the holidays. So if you are in a new relationship, and you are looking at a couple cosplay for your local con to get started on, here are some great ideas. Many of these ideas are simpler, from more mainstream fandoms, and great if your significant other isn’t YET into cosplay as much as you are. Also, we are avoiding related groups because we don’t ship incest here on The Nerdd (just in case someone catches you kissing).

Mario and Peach

A classic, even if your partner is new to fandom in general, this is little more than just a couples Halloween costume.

PacMan and Ghost

Will one of you be running around from event to event at your con, and the other will be following, not really sure what’s going on? Then the PacMan/Ghost cosplay is for you! Make the excited partner PacMan, and the supportive one the Ghost!

Link and Zelda

This requires a bit more work, as there are multiple parts to making either of these outfits, but they are simple, crowd-pleasing, and usually comfortable.

Lara Croft and Nathan Drake

This one is great if you don’t want to spend a whole bunch on cosplay pieces, because most people have at least one outfit for when they are hiking/camping. Also, because it’s a crossover from both Tomb Raider and Uncharted, no one will expect you to kiss for a photo op if you aren’t into public displays of affection (PDA).

Journey (Video Game)

Do you want to hide under a blanket from the world? Perhaps you have social anxiety, or just don’t feel like talking to people. These outfits are simple, and will elicit a passionate response from a very few amount of people.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy

Spongebob! These are fun, cheap outfits that will let you act like a goofball all day, and people will love it!

Cosmo and Wanda

Want a bit more of a pull from ’90s and early ’00s Nickelodeon? Cosmo and Wanda is for you. Just about 30 minutes of arts and crafts will get these costumes and up rolling. Oh, and some hair spray.

Beauty and the Beast

Maybe your significant other is a Dis-Nerd, and they want to dress as royalty. These are very popular, but be ready for little kids all over the place to want to take pictures with you.

Judy and Nick (Zootopia)

This can be seen as part of the furry community, but these are fun, thrift shop bought cosplays that are easily recognizable.

Brock and Nurse Joy / Officer Jenny

Are you clearly in a relationship and don’t mind PDA? This is a ton of fun that can also lead to some very funny photography poses.

Superman and Wonder Woman

Classic superheroes. Red, blue, and gold cover your outfits, just have a smile on all day, and you’re set.

Batman and Catwoman

The same as above, but if you prefer all black with a grimace.

Black Panther and Storm

Are you and your partner African-American? This King/Queen Marvel combo is perfect. (To be clear, if you are African-American, you can do any cosplay, if you’re not African-American, please stick to one of the other cosplays.)

Deadpool and Lady Deadpool

Full body coverage, and you can run around the convention and be silly all day! Perfect for a very active couple!

Han and Leia

Everyone knows Star Wars! Just like Mario and Peach, these pieces can be bought like a Halloween costume.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targeryan

Want to feel cool? Game of Thrones obviously expands beyond the convention culture at this point, but the effort these take can be a bit more than beginners level. Also, Jon might overheat if he isn’t careful.

The Doctor and Companion

One of you wants to dress up, and the other one just wants to wear street clothes? This is the answer for you!

Kaylee and Simon (Firefly)

This is much less likely for the non-nerd partner to be familiar with, but everyone on the con floor will recognize you, and might cheer.

Kirito and Asuna

More into anime and Sword Art Online? You haven’t been forgotten. Most anime cosplays require a lot of work, but this might be a good place to start.
