These Couples Killed The Halloween Costume Game For 2016

This Halloween brought out the best in Black love and excellence!

Lauren Porter Oct, 31, 2016

Halloween weekend 2016 was super duper lit! From the spooky to the sassy, couples came to slay the game and the results were absolutely everything!

Everyone (from your favorite celebrities to the cute couples on your feed) shut down Halloween parties with their creative costumes, and believe us when we say, the Black excellence was at an all time high.

One couple even channelled the Obamas’ epic ESSENCE shoot from our November issue, while another family served Black power realness. And, of course the nostalgia moments came through to give us all the feels too.

See the best of the best couple costumes we spotted on Instagram this Halloween!
