5. Dexter & The Victim

As an ode to the Showtime series Dexter, couples can kill a crowd this Halloween as Dexter and one of his victims. For the Dexter costume, try to wear a green shirt with a black apron. For the entire series, Dexter wore this type of outfit while he participated in his "extracurricular activities" as a serial killer.

If you plan to be Dexter's victim, create a costume made of clear plastic wrap. Clear tape will be your best friend during this process. Don't forget to bunch plastic wrap to cover  intimate areas of your body when creating your plastic wrap masterpiece. Lastly, place a prop knife or fake blood spatter in the center of your chest to imitate Dexter's infamous technique.
