This homemade costume for couples entered our 2010 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Erika, the 'Barbie and Ken' costume creator:

I made the boxes myself; here are the instructions:

I bought 2 U-haul Garment boxes, cut the bottom out and then cut the front in the shape of a doll box opening. Then I spraypainted the inside light pink, the outside bright pink and painted the ribbons around the cut-out in the front.

I also downloaded, enlarged and printed Mattel and Barbie logos, and made and printed the Ken logo as well as the other phrases.

Did you use a belt to hold up the boxes?

#5 comment by erika October 8, 2013

Hi all, no we just carried the boxes. They got difficult as the party filled up because of space and not being able to see 360. But they made for great pictures! :-)

How did you make the box

#8 comment by Elmurray1@gmail.com September 30, 2015

@Shawna: It's a uhaul wardrobe box that I cut the front out of and just painted inside and out. Then just applied paper labels that I made on my computer to try and match the font of the barbie boxes.
