The teenager goes to Doctor Strange in attempt to reverse the outcome, but he starts having doubts because he’ll lose his relationship with MJ.

Finally, Amity and Luz are girlfriends. In the Disney Channel animated series, The Owl House, a human girl named Luz stumbles into another world and learns to be a witch under the teachings of Eda Clawthorne. During her time there, she meets Amity Blight, another witch-in-training. At first, they had a rocky relationship, but they eventually soften and even attend grom (read: prom) together. You can find their grom outfits here and here.

Edward and Bella

Edward and Bella Couples Costumes from Twilight

With the release of Midnight Sun and the movies on Netflix, what better couple to be than Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. This idea is great if you want to be low-key (not Loki…we’ll get to that though!) for Halloween this year. Bella can be accomplished with flannels and henleys, while a gray peacoat is Edward’s signature piece.

Loki and Sylvie

In the Disney+ series, Loki, our protagonist finds his variant, Sylvie, destroying the timeline. When the Time Keepers are revealed as hoaxes, Loki and Sylvie join forces to find the real master behind time. Although technically not a couple, given they are the same person, this duo would be a great idea for friends.

Wanda and Vision

Wanda and Vision Couples Costumes

Wanda and Vision were featured in 2020 couple guide as well, but now there are so many more costumes to choose from! You and your partner can choose from any decade to dress as our favorite synthezoid and witch. Since it’s Halloween, we suggest their Halloween costumes as the classic comic book Scarlet Witch and Vision. If you have kids, get them to join in Tommy and Billy’s costumes, which hint at their Young Avengers titles.

Usnavi and Vanessa
