Nice threads, but... yeah. Don't go there.
The other day, a friend of ours asked us for our opinion on some ideas for "couple costumes," as in Halloween, including Han Solo and Princess Leia. Ugh. Do you happy couples really start this early in September?

Rocks Off thinks we kind of understand the seriousness of the couple costume planning process, though. With all of the naughty nurses and scantily dressed school girls drinking vodka from Styrofoam cups, we'd want to make sure our man was unmistakably attached to us the whole night too.

If you choose to dress as a couple this Halloween, there are a few costumes you should do your best to avoid: No "ball and chain" getups or Sookie Stackhouse and that old vampire dude from True Blood. No more vampires, please.

And certainly no cliché musician couples. Below are nine ill-fated or way-too-obvious musical duos that we hope we don't see at any parties this year.

9. Donny and Marie Osmond

First of all, they're still brother and sister regardless of any rumors suggesting that they've had sex. Second of all, look at them. There's no way you can buy that much tooth from Halloween Express.

8. Johnny & June Carter Cash

To us, the late Cashes' love was eternal and the realest of real. You just can't live up to that, no matter how many picnics you've had together or how many photos you've taken together... or whatever it is you couples spend your time doing.

7. Ike & Tina Turner

This one goes without saying, right?

6. Sid Vicious & Nancy Spungen

We dig the Sex Pistols. A lot. We just have a slight problem with people romanticizing Sid and Nancy's tumultuous love affair. Their relationship was only two years long and it was pretty fucked up, from what we've learned. But what the hell? If you're going for the traditional '70s punk look for the night, they'd be a great couple to impersonate. Plus, you won't have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions or party fouls.

I never knew these couples. However, based on your description, it would be better to avoid impersonating them for Halloween.


Wow. Just wow.

I hope the naughty nurses and scantily clad school girls have enough sense to stay away from the blues brothers, George Michael, and Simon & Garfunkel.


Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder, Captain and Tenille.
