Suggest Hallowe'en costume ideas for an unusual-looking couple? He's white and very tall, she's brown and average-sized.

Him: 6'9" white guy. Very athletic build, big shoulders. Blond/brown hair. Looks about 35 years old. Calm, quiet personality.
Her: 5'6" brown woman. Athletic build, long black hair. Tiger Woods-type multi-racial background, so, with the right wig, she could be any race without it being offensive. Looks about 25 years old. Bubbly, outspoken personality.
The ideal costumes would capitalize on these differences in size and race, and maybe even reference our contrasting personalities. We're both cool with doing drag if need be. So far Calvin and Hobbes is the favorite- we like how it meshes with our heights and personalities- but we think we can do even better.
Aiming to be clever, non-offensive, and easily-recognizable in a liberal, urban, mid-30s party crowd.
