Darla and Alfalfa

A wonderful play on a classic, Alfalfa is sneaking in for a smooch on the cheek of beautiful Darla even if it's against the rules of the He-Man Womun Haters Club. These little rascals pull the look off perfectly completed with Darla's umbrella and Alfalfa’s suspenders and hair sticking up. These highly recognized characters are sure to melt hearts.

Though the true relationship of these two isn't exactly crystal clear, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are two very popular characters who have been associated with each other since the 70s. A green suit with the signature big eyes help to complete his Kermit while Miss Piggy shines in her boa and tiara.
Lichtenstein Pop Art
Sent in by Chris to our 2014 costume contest.
Roy Lichtenstein was a very well known American painter most known for his work in the 60s. His style of art is centered around using parodies in a comic book styling. With a very clever take on this pop art icon, these two opt for a great makeup design rather than masks. Together they pull off a great animated look that will take anybody back in time to the art scene that Lichtenstein helped to popularize.

There have been many scary movies with which to draw inspiration from for a great Halloween costume idea. These movies have created so many memorable and recognizable characters. Child's Play is one of those series, giving us Chucky. In Bride of Chucky, we were introduced to another doll named Tiffany. This Tiffany and Chucky combination complete the look of the psychotic dolls with Chucky's signature overalls and facial stitches along with Tiffany's wedding dress and knife, showing her intentions.
