Near, far, wherever you are, you’ve probably engaged in a fierce debate about the Titanic at some point in your life. Not about how it sunk and not about the movie’s historical accuracy, but about a door, the door, Rose’s door.
In the film, we watch Jack as he slowly succumbs to hypothermia while Rose floats on a broken door and ultimately survives. And the question remains: Why didn’t Jack join Rose on the door? Couldn’t they both have fit on the seemingly sizable floating debris?
This Halloween, you and your partner can dress up as Jack and Rose while toting around an inflatable replica of the Titanic’s dining room door and finally settle this debate. This might be one of the best Halloween couples’ costumes in 2022 — it’s clever, easily recognizable and everyone loves a good pop culture reference.
Carrying around a giant inflatable floaty will make you the talk of any party. Not only is it a costume, it’s a conversation piece, a prop for reenactments, and it even doubles as a comfy cushioned seat if all the couches are taken at your crowded Halloween get-together. Impress your friends with this clever costume and finally answer the age-old question: could Rose have saved Jack?
Check out the door float and other ideas for rounding out your Titanic couples’ costume below.

For much of the film, Jack Dawson sports neutral-colored, basic clothes, things you might already have in your closet. Take some sort of collared shirt, suspenders, and a luscious wig to easily transform into a young Leonardo DiCaprio.
