To Millennials, the phrase “Netflix and Chill” has more connotations than people not in the know might realize. When someone slides through your DMs with an offer like that, you should proooobably educate yourself on the ulterior motives first before you innocently invite them over for a marathon of House of Cards. To put it lightly, if you ask someone to “Netflix and Chill,” you’re hoping for something a little more exciting than “chilling” when the lights get low. Feel free to make any potentially-bad decisions you want while swiping through Tinder, but you have to admit dressing up in a couples “Netflix and Chill” costume is a 100% GREAT decision.
DIY Netflix and Chill Halloween Costume
The number one thing you need for this costume is to find an image of the Netflix logo for a red shirt, and then for a white shirt, just the word Chill. That way you will have your own Netflix and chill shirt! Perfect. Print it! Cut it out of iron-on vinyl! Iron it! You’re done! There’s always props you can add, but these two things are definitely the main premise of the look when making a Netflix and chill costume.

You'll want a plain red and white shirts, or shirts in those colors that you can turn inside-out. Once you get your Netflix and chill logos on your shirts (either with iron-on vinyl or printer paper and safety pins), you're practically done! If you're a fan of props to make things a little more interesting, get a movie clapper board prop. That way you can yell "action!" before striking a sexy pose.
Additional Ideas to Enjoy Your Netflix & Chill Couples Costume
- Carry around a "chill" bag of ice all night. That might melt, though, so be careful!
- Have someone hold a clapper from a film set. You know, for the times you want to call for, ahem, action.
- If you have an extra friend laying around, having them wear a “one-night stand” costume is perfect for a creepy third wheel to wear, or to turn this couples look into a topical group costume.
Everyone is getting in on this meme, too. Netflix even made their own “Netflix and Chill” button called “The Switch,” which engineers say will dim the lights, turn your phone to “Do Not Disturb,” and fires up the website. Amazing. And, we do have to say, we were inspired by Tinder user vrpowell2000, who set his profile picture to be a one-man Netflix and Chill costume. We salute you, vrpowell2000!
