Homemade Halloween Costumes: Ideas For Couples
_ It seems like people who win Halloween Costume Contests are always wearing homemade Halloween Costumes. It's not the people who throw on a pirate's eye patch or a French maid outfit that win. Those costumes are a dime a dozen and you see them on every corner on Halloween night.
The costumes that win the contests are unique and original creations, creations that take a little imagination. The real kicker is – these homemade costumes are often less expensive than the costumes you buy in the store. And they're so much more entertaining!
And coming up with Halloween costumes for couples isn't as hard as you might think. Just take a look at this couple who dressed up as Beetlejuice and Lydia. Beetlejuice's suit cost a measly $8 at a thrift shop and with a little fabric paint he easily added the black stripes. Lydia's dress was another thrift shop purchase and all she had to add was a wig and some makeup.
Alfred Hitchock's "The Birds"
_ This couple chose to model their costume after the characters in one of their favorite, classic horror movies – Alfred Hitchcock's “The Birds”.
Again, the clothes came from a local thrift shop and were gussied up with some crows and some bird doo-doo made with puffy paint.
And old feather boa was sacrificed for extra feathers. And voila! An award winning homemade Halloween Costume for a couple!
Lego Bride and Groom
_ But your costume doesn't have to be based on a favorite horror movie. Use your imagination and you can come up with all kinds of ideas for couples Halloween costumes. Pat Sajak and Vanna White, Bert and Ernie, Popeye and Olive Oil.
Or dig a little deeper into your bag of tricks like this couple and put together a Lego Bride and Groom costume.
The whole costume was made with a few cardboard boxes, a little glue, some paint and some scraps of fabric and lace.
This Halloween don't go in one of those boring, bland store-bought costumes. Visit CostumeWorks.com for ideas and tips for creating your own homemade Halloween Costumes for couples so you can win the contest this year.
