Milk and cookies, peanut butter and jelly, burgers and fries—these are just a couple of duos that prove the best things in life really do come in pairs. With this saying in mind, who’s better for the job of rocking a two-person Halloween costume than twins? Sure, siblings and friends can do an awesome job, too, but twins were born for this moment to shine (not literally, but you get the point). With the spookiest time of year just around the corner, the possibilities for costumes for your own iconic duo are endless.
From pop culture classics like Mario and Luigi to clever twin gag outfits like Copy and Paste, there’s something for every pair in this round-up. Below are 20 of the best Halloween costumes for your twins to be the cutest trick-or-treaters on the block. Read on, but beware—you may start seeing double.
