Two heads are better than one, right? When it comes to Halloween costumes, that probably isn’t a good theory to go by. The only problem that normally arises with a couple’s costume is the lack of cooperation. She wants to be Hansel and Gretel; he wants to be Hugh Hefner and a Playboy Bunny. No matter how hard it may be at times, you can find a few great ideas that you both like. You just have to search hard enough and get a little creative. Here are a few ideas you can take on the road.
NEO AND TRINITY OF MATRIX – Relive Matrix Revolutions with this cool costume. For Neo, a black coat and black sunglasses will make the look. For Trinity, a black vinyl coat and dark sunglasses will make the look. Pickup some 4-way stretch pvc fabric from MJTrends.com for a slick top to wear underneath the coat. The pair should be wearing boots black, of course.
POPYE AND OLIVE OYL- These well loved cartoon characters can be a hit on a Halloween party. You’ve got to locate a sailor’s cap and a uniform to start the process with Popeye. Then for Olive Oyl, a simple braid of the hair and a red shirt will most likely do. Guys can go for a leather or vinyl sailor suit for a little extra sex appeal.
DOCTOR AND NURSE – Who doesn’t want to play doctor every once and awhile? The standard cotton smock will do, but for that super sexy look, try PVC as your choice fabric. The sexy cling will undoubtedly be a hit at the party.
FRED AND WILMA FLINTSTONE – You only need some cut out clothing to actually make the caveman and cave girl look realistic. Add some pearls for Wilma or leather animal skin for Fred and you’re set.
ADAM AND EVE-The first parents of the human race were naked. How can you dress like them then? If you can actually find a flesh colored jumpsuit, that would be a start. You’ll likely want to make one of your own though. Try vinyl it you want it to hug like your own skin.
BARBIE AND KEN – Long golden wig for her and a nice preppy outfit for him – that’s all you really need. The Barbie look can be themed if desired, like Beach Barbie, Shopping Barbie, Barbie Princess, etc. Ken can fit the theme too if you really want to complement one another.
SONNY AND CHER – Play it real modern so this costume can work. For Sonny, dress up in a black shirt, stretched vinyl pants and a red scarf. For Cher, get a gold crop top and leather pants with metal belt. Sing a round of ‘I Got You Babe’ to set the tone; then walk into a party like a rock star!
JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO – The famous couple of the rock and roll scene – Lennon and Ono. John Lennon accessories will include a guitar and round rimmed glasses. For Yoko Ono, the costume will include bell bottomed pants paired with tees.
