Killer Whale and His Trainer
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Raelina, the 'Killer Whale and his Trainer' costume creator:
My husband and I have always done a couple costume, and this year was no different. I got the idea off of thinking about what would be really funny but also comfortable. Our costume won best group costume. We acted the part all night. I would get my Husband to do a trick like jump in the air and then I would give him a "treat" (gummy sharks). At the Halloween party we went to we even performed a show for all of the guests that included information and a trick show. It was completed with me hopping on my Husband's back to ride around the room waving to everyone. It was truly a great costume. This costume deserved to win by far. It had creativity, spunk, and the thrill of surprise. We got to interact with others and as well as with each other. My best advice is to have fun with the costume. I believe the win was not just due to the creativity, but it was about embracing the idea and persona of the costume. I have no idea how we will top it next year.
This costume was a lot of fun to create. For the Killer Whale costume:
*we got a plan black sweatshirt.
*We cut a white piece of material and cut it into a oblong shape to cover the belly of the sweatshirt
*we got google eyes in the shape of the side spot and glued them to the hood of the sweatshirt
*we cut a piece of black foam into the shape of the fin and glued it to the back of the sweatshirt
For the Trainer costume:
*We ordered a wet suit and glued a Sea World logo onto the front of the wet suit
*The costume was paired with a gummy shark bucket and a whistle.
