How to Get the Velma & Coco Look for the Perfect Halloween Couples Costume

Halloween is right around the corner, which means if you’re seriously considering dressing up for the parties in your immediate future, things are running out of steam. And if you’re looking to get a couples costume, there’s still more work to do before this year’s gruesome gatherings.
