This homemade costume for couples entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jossie, the 'Madame Mim and Merlin' costume creator:
My husband and I usually do a couples cartoon costume for Halloween. This year we decided on Mad Madame Mim and Merlin from Disney's the Sword in the Stone. We do not like store bought fully packaged costumes so I source the pieces we are going to use from all over and adjust, dye, cut, sew as needed.
This years costume was not too much work as the majority of the items were purchased from Amazon including both my wig and his wigs/beard. His hat came from Etsy as I couldn't find a plain blue Wizards hat that stood up anywhere else.
My outfit was a regular purple tank top, pink tights, purple heels and a bright pink Audrey Hepburn skirt - all reusable as everyday clothes. And a bright green pair of contacts - easily the most expensive piece of both costumes.
His beard was made from a second of the same cosplay wig he was wearing plus a goatee that was for a Colonel Sanders costume. I sewed them together and hooked his beard onto his wig cap. He wore a blue robe and blue socks over his sandals. He also carried a wand and a tiny Archimedes (owl).
