Love is always in the air, which means you’re probably looking for cosplay ideas for couples!
These days, we’re always shipping 2 people today. Shipping is a thing now. But how do you separate the fake couples from the real ones? Well, if you’re wondering then you’re in the right place!
In this post, I have over 50 cosplay ideas for couples that you and your partner should definitely try together.
I’ll start with 10 in-depth suggestions and the rest in a list. Keep in mind that for this list, it doesn’t matter which gender you are, your sexual orientation or what type of relationship you’re in – you can do any of these cosplays regardless of these things!
NOTE: If you haven’t played or watched any of these series, there could be potential storyline spoilers for you. You’ve been warned! Read this cosplay ideas for couples post with caution!
With that out of the way, let’s get started!
DISCLAIMER: I have some affiliate links in this article if you’re looking to wear any of these cosplays. Either I myself have bought from those stores, or I truly feel they are great deals for a beginner cosplayer. I’ll only post links if I feel the price and quality are of good quality. If you’re buying from these sites, you’re also supporting me and my hobby so I appreciate it!

Tanjiro and Kanao from Demon Slayer
If you and your partner want to not only show your love for each but also for Demon Slayer, then definitely Tanjiro and Kanao is the best option for an Anime couple cosplay. Out of all the characters in the series, those two are definitely the most shippable couple. Throughout the season, they’ve shown that they care and love each other. 🙂

Legoshi and Haru from Beastars
Another Anime couple cosplay worth doing! Beastars is a series that’s been getting quite a bit of attention. The show is already in its 2nd season and it’s an interesting series to say the least; the story takes place in an anthropomorphic world where herbivores and carnivores live together.
If you’ve watched or read the series, you know that Legoshi and Haru are the most shippable couple from Beastars. How cute and wonderful you guys would look; a big but shy wolf with a small but fierce rabbit!
You two can also do Juno and Louis as an alternative.
Legoshi and Haru are definitely underrated characters to cosplay. If you’re looking for more underrated cosplay ideas, click here to see a list of these characters!
Erina and Soma from Food Wars
Who doesn’t love a a cooking Anime show? Food Wars has been one of the most popular series in recent years, and for good reason! A great story and memorable characters. In this case, we have Soma and Erina. While they may not have technically became a couple in the series, many believe they belong together. So why not be together in cosplay together?
Both Soma’s and Erina’s outfits are easy to put together. I myself have cosplayed Soma, and it was by far one of the easiest cosplays I’ve worn!
Attack On Titan
UPDATE: 2021 was supposed to be the final season for Attack on Titan, but it’s not over yet! Even more reason to put on the military uniform for you two. Maybe 2023 will be the final year for AoT!
While there isn’t too much romance happening in AoT (they are fighting giant demons after all!), many fans have decided to ship their own characters together. Here are some of them:
- Eren and Mikasa
- Jean and Marco
- Christa and Ymir
Lola and Bugs Bunny
Space Jam is over 2 decades old but hear me out. The sequel, Space Jam 2, finally came out in 2021. So everyone is reminded of Bugs and Lola Bunny together. Best part is they’re both easy to cosplay; all you need is the Toon Squad jersey and shorts, some bunny ears and a basketball! An easy cosplay couple to do.

Deku and Ochaco from My Hero Academia
An Anime cosplay couple that will be popular in the near future. It’s no secret that Ochaco has a crush on the main character, Deku. Whenever My Hero Academia is finally done, we’ll probably see Deku and Ochaco together. So these two characters are the most obvious choice if you want to cosplay from MHA as a couple. You can spice it up and swap Ochaco for…Toga?! Or you can take out Deku and put Froppy instead.
If you and your partner rather not be a cliche cosplay, there are other MHA ships you can potentially do. Check further down in the post for more MHA cosplay couples ideas!
Korra and Asami from The Legend of Korra
Who doesn’t love Avatar? It’s a classic series with many memorable moments. But I’m sure we all loved the final scene between Korra and Asami even more so!
Why not show your love for the Avatar series by cosplaying two of the most loved characters in The Legend of Korra? There has definitely been some hype for Avatar once again. So it’s definitely a good time for a Korra and Asami cosplay couple choice!
Link and Zelda (most legendary of couples!)
The Hero of Time and The Goddess of Hylia – what a perfect couple! I feel like Link and Zelda are the dream cosplays for any couple. Although their costume isn’t the easiest to make, the costume design is definitely beautiful. And you can always get someone else to make it if you don’t feel like sewing a Zelda costume yourself.
Harley Quinn and Joker (most evilest of couples)
Harley Quinn may be the most overdone cosplay of all time, but for good reason. She is an awesome villain that resonates with DC fans. With Joker, you’d make for an awesome power couple being the most dysfunctional relationship in the fictional universe. And since they’re both popular characters, you’ll have no problems meeting other cosplayers at a con as well.
Ash and Misty
While it’s never confirmed in the Pokémon Anime that Ash and Misty liked each other, it’s somewhat implied that they did have feelings of some sort. In any case, it’s totally acceptable to cosplay the two together as a couple. So go ahead and dress up together as the most iconic characters of Pokemon! It’s a bonus that Ash and Misty are both easy cosplays to do. Be sure to bring a Pikachu and Togepi with you.

Kirito and Asuna (one of the most hated cosplay Anime couple?)
Sword Art Online might be the best Anime or the worst thing ever, depending on your perspective. But no matter how you feel about the series, Kirito and Asuna is still a cute Anime couple cosplay!
Naofumi and Raphtalia (newest Anime cosplay couple)
One of my personal favorites! This one is a relatively new Anime couple, since it’s from Shield Hero. While technically Raphtalia is the slave for Naofumi, we all want to ship them together! They make for a great power duo.
If you want to learn how make cosplay props like Raphtalia’s sword or Naofumi’s shield, I made a guide for it. Click here if you want to read it.
Sebastian and Ciel
Although Sebastian is just a demon butler to master Ciel in the storyline, as cosplayers they make for a great cosplay couple if you’re looking for an excuse to dress something fancy. For Ciel, you can opt for his wedding dress or the suit and the hat.
Ouran High School Host Club
Ouran Host Club is a great Anime couple cosplay to do your significant other! For one, it’s insanely easy to do – all you need is black dress pants, a dress shirt and tie, and the signature Ouran blue blazer. And you have a variety of characters to choose from. You can opt to be Haruhi and your partner can be one of the many members, including Temaki or Haruhi. The twins can also work as well!
Naruto and Hinata
Who doesn’t love Naruto? It’s one of the most successful Shonen Anime of all time. And what better couple to cosplay than Naruto and Hinata? Both are great characters in their own way, so whether you two are cosplaying at a convention or for a photoshoot, you’ll definitely lots of fans admiring you guys when together! One of the best and well-known Anime cosplay couple out there!

My name is Roger Senpai. I’m a cosplayer that’s been in the community for well over a decade now. I’ve traveled all over the world to Anime and Comic conventions and hosted my own cosplay events. Now I’m writing articles for new and experienced cosplayers like you to help inspire, save you money and improve your cosplays!
Like!! Great article post.Really thank you! Really Cool.
The ones that either I’d really like (or have) seen include:
1. Houtarou Oreki / Eru Chitanda (Hyouka)
2. Taichi Yagami / Sora Takenouchi (Digimon Adventure) – yes, I ship this uncanonical one hard 😉
3. Sakura Kinomoto / Syaoran Li (Cardcaptor Sakura)
4. Taki / Mitsuha (Your Name)
5. Yuzuru Otonashi / Kanade Tachibana (Angel Beats)
6. Judai Yuki / Asuka Tenjoun (Yu-Gi-Oh GX)
7. Aang / Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
8. Stan Marsh / Wendy Testaburger (South Park)
9. Spongebob / Patrick (Spongebob Squarepants)
10. Kazuma / Megumin (Konosuba)
And… people actually hate the Kirito / Asuna pairing? I mean I know SAO gets a lot of hate but I’d never think said pairing would get the brunt of it.
Nice, a lot of those pairings I’ve never heard of until now. Good to know! And yes, Sword Art Online is such a polarizing series. Maybe not so much anymore, but back in its peak popularity, it sure was.
