|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jodi, the 'Living the Trophy Life' costume creator:
My husband Neill and I like to do a couples costume each year for my sister's adult Halloween party that she has. We always strive to do something fairly original. We feel like we got it right this year! We saw a picture online for this idea but had never seen anyone do it before. We both love sports so being trophies was perfect for us. We created this on our own by purchasing used clothing/golf clubs from the local Goodwill in a beige or gold color and scanned our closets for other items to accessorize. We purchased gold spray paint from WalMart and spray painted our clothes, my panty house, old shoes, hats, and golf clubs. Then we found sparkly gold face/body makeup online and ordered that. We used cardboard boxes for the stands, which we filled with sand buckets so that we could stand on them. We covered them in white plastic table cloths and used foam board to make the signs for the front of the trophy stands. When we showed up at the party, everyone was wow'd by our costumes and said they were the best anyone had ever seen. We also wore them to our office (we work together) and stood in the lobby on Halloween morning to greet everyone. We had some great reactions from people who weren't totally awake yet and who we scared as they thought we were real statues. lol Fun costumes and fun times!
