This homemade costume for couples entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Grace, the 'Van Gogh & Starry Night' costume creator:

Bradley is dressed as Van Gough from one of his famous painted self portraits (we added his bandaged ear to make the reference extra noticeable. Grace is dressed as Starry Night, one of Van Gogh's most esteemed paintings. We knew we wanted to do a couples costume, but didn't want to do something that has been overdone or something cliche. I have never bought a costume from a costume store so we were looking for something that we could create that would be unique. I have always loved Starry Night and Brad bears a striking resemblance to Van Gogh (except he has two ears) so we decided it would be perfect. We bought the dress, hat and blazer at Value Village and I painted the dress and jacket modeled after the paintings, using lots of fabric paints with short brush strokes and layering colors. I painted Brads face with makeup paint. I wore a picture frame attached with a necklace chain to further accentuate that I was a painting. And the rest is history! Art history that is...
