Lumberjack & Tree Couple Costume
Lumberjack & Tree
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Tenaje, the 'Lumberjack & Tree' costume creator:
My boyfriend and I had been throwing around different couples costumes for weeks. I had finally given up until he decided he was going to be a lumberjack. Well what goes with a lumberjack? A tree!
Our costumes took very little time and effort to put together. He owned a plaid shirt, jeans, and boots. We bought him a beanie and suspenders from Walmart (no more than $10.00 for both.) He made his axe from scratch. He simply used an old broom stick, cut cardboard in the shape of the blade, spray painted it red, and covered the edges with silver tape.
I used a piece of brown cloth, hemmed the edges, and wrapped it around my body like a toga. I took a piece of green material and wrapped it around my arms to appear as vines. I went to Walmart and bought the bird, butterfly, chipmunk, and owl (again, no more than $10.00). I had the green leave garland and turned it into a head piece.
We were the best/creative couple at our Halloween party!!
