Couples Cosplay

My girlfriend and I were doing some talking about a couple cosplay and we really can't think of much. I need some ideas for a good couple cosplay. Something that isn't overdone. Any ideas? What are your takes on couple cosplays in general? Which couple cosplays would you say are completely overdone or not done enough?

Those of you who have already done a couples cosplay, got any good or funny stories?

Hard to say, but I wouldn't really say any are overdone. Couple cosplays are much more rare than group or single. Though if I were to say which were done the most, it would be Tuxedo Kamen and Sailor Moon and Kenshin and Kaoru from RuroKen. I'll be doing a Rydia and Edge couple cosplay with my boyfriend soon, and it's a rare pairing to see at any con.

My friend and I plan on doing a cosplay couple.
I have NEVER seen them as a cosplay just yet but I'll be happy to share some couples that I planned.
Yuri and Prince Kail- Red River

Echi-kun or Tactou and Mitsuki- Full Moon Wo Sagashite

Rin and Haru- Fruits Basket

Hatori and Kana- Fruits Basket

Original Characters are cool! ;D

Best of Luck to you. :3

As Hime no Toki said, couple cosplay isn't as common as you would think, so you have a lot of possibilities. There are even quite a few "famous" couples that aren't done too often. It seems like lots of people will cosplay as the characters independently and by chance meet up with the other half of their couple, if at all (for all the Kaname cosplayers, there rarely seems to be a Sousuke...). An example that comes to mind is Squall and Rinoa from FF8. I have yet to see a Squall and Rinoa come together, unless they're part of a larger group.

So, I would suggest just picking a couple or pair that you like and go with it. I don't think it really matters if it's "overdone". ^_^

Almost all my cosplays will be couples and yea it is a hard thing to do. You have to find a show and costume both of you guys like enough to cosplay. Heck I would say don't limit yourself to just couples on the show or game but my main idea is to pick two characters that are semi common to common in the show and pair them up. I know we got a good reaction to our Ranma&Ranma-Chan cosplay. We plan on doing an Ukyo and Ryoga and I will also be making a Shampoo.

Couple cosplay seems to be pretty rare to me. Just recently, though, my boyfriend and I did a Sakura and Syaoran from Tsubasa Chronicle that turned out very cute, and we're going to do a Kairi and Sora for Otakon. My best friends Sammy and Adam did a Kenshin and Kaoru for Tekkoshocon, and the second day, they did Kenshin and Tomoe!

Really, the possibilities are endless. It's most important to pick characters that you like!

Word to everything everyone has said. Most of my cosplays are "couples" as well. Actually we tend to cosplay couples where one person has a one-sided love - in the world of anime plot-lines this expands your options quite a bit ^o^

I can provide you with a list of things either me and the boy have already done, plan to do, or I'd like for us to do in the future. It's a pretty good list because I 'ship EVERYTHING. XD Also note that these are mostly my personal preferences.

Miaka/Tamahome (Fushigi Yuugi)
Roy/Riza (FMA)
Ichigo/Rukia (BLEACH)
Urahara/Yoruichi (BLEACH)
Ishida/Orihime (BLEACH)
Leon/Ada (RE4)
Fuu/Ferio (Rayearth)
Sango/Miroku (Inuyasha)
Spike/Faye (Cowboy Bebop - even though it's a one-sided couple, it's well recognized.)
Cloud/Tifa (FF7 - Some people would argue Cloud/Aeris, but I say that's blasphemy.)
Squall/Rinoa (FF8)
Selphie/Irvine (FF8)
Zidane/Garnet (FF9)
Gene/Melfina (Outlaw Star - Although I personally support Harry/Melfina. ^_~)
Parn/Deedlit (Lodoss War)
Mai/Andy (KOF)
Kula/K' (KOF)
Setsuna/Sara (Angel Sanctuary - If you don't mind gettin' a little freaky.)
St. Tail/Asuka Jr. (Saint Tail - If you don't mind being 10 year old kids!)
Hisui/Kokuyo (WISH)

Or you could get really interesting and start doing kinda-couples.

Utena/Touga, Anthy/Saionji, Utena/Akio, Anthy/Akio, Ruka/Juri, Ruka/Shiori...

I'd love to do a Ruka/Shiori couple with the hubby, but Utena is in his "No Cosplay" clause. Along with anything by CLAMP or Rumiko Takahashi. ^_^;

Anyway, hope that helps!

P.S. It doesn't even have to be canon couples or anything. If there's a series or game you both like, and you have specific characters you like...just cosplay from the same thing. ^_^
