This is a follow up to my previous post 4 Cheap Halloween Costumes for Couples. Since Halloween is getting closer, you may not have the time to order costumes for you and your spouse…unless you want to pay outrageous shipping fees which defeats the purpose of finding cheap costumes! Here are some EASY (and cheap) do-it-yourself ideas for couples costumes. Note: ideas marked with a $ are ones that you can do with items you most likely own already.
DIY Halloween costumes for couples
Widow & Corpse ($)
She wears a black dress, black veil, black gloves, etc. and holds a tissue or handkerchief. He wears a suit and pale makeup.
Ebony & Ivory ($)
One person wears all black from head-to-toe and the other wears all white or off-white.
Black & Blue ($)
Similar to Ebony and Ivory but instead of white, the second person wears all blue.
Mr & Mrs. Potato Head
Each of you use brown felt and some sort of stuffing to make yourselves into potatoes, wear white leggings, turtleneck and gloves underneath, with big bright shoes. Make up some felt body parts (eyes, lips, ears, nose) and attach with Velcro so people can move them around. Remember that he should have a hat and she should have a purse.
Adam & Eve ($)
This is for the daring…and in shape couple. Attach large leaves (either real or fake from craft store) to bathing suits or underwear. She should carry an apple.
Night & Day
One person wears all black and attaches felt stars (and a moon) all over their body. The other wears all light blue and attaches cotton ball clouds all over their body.
Letter (or number) Pairs
Both of you wear the same solid color from head-to-toe. Create the following letters or numbers out of felt to attach to the front of your body. Q & A, T & A, S & M, or 7&7
I hope you like some of these ideas. If you decide to use one of these DIY couples costumes let us know…maybe show a photo?
