This homemade costume for couples entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Cathy, the 'Lion and Lion Tamer' costume creator:

I got the idea for my husband to be a lion while going through his military desert camouflage long underwear and matching shirt and gloves. He also had desert boots, which I taped "claws" onto, and also onto the gloves. I used just the hood and tail of a children's lion costume. I painted my husband's face while watching a demo on YouTube.

My lion tamer's costume was totally homemade! I cut a red blazer into long tails, and put black duct tape along the hem. I used cardboard for the shoulder boards and bow tie, and covered them with fabric from a shiny gold shirt. My cummerbund is also made from the gold fabric. My black top hat is made from black poster board with a red duct tape band around it. I used red duct tape down each outer seam of the black pants, and wore high black boots. I added fake eyebrows and a mustache. I covered a small hoola hoop with black duct tape for the large ring.

This was the most fun costume to make!!
