This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Andria, the 'WWII Kiss' costume creator:

This is me and my boyfriend as a WWII sailor and red cross nurse. We are imitating the VJ Day Kiss from 1945 in Times Square, NYC. Here is a link to the picture: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-J_Day_in_Times_Square

We found him a vintage looking sailor costume and I had a button down white dress, with back seam stockings and neutral shoes. Did my hair and makeup like 1940s women.

This is a great costume for couples, and you get to dip and kiss all night!

It actually isn't a vintage sailor costume. We just went to the costume store and bought him a normal sailor Halloween costume. However, we did find some vintage sailor wear at various Army Surplus stores, but they were out of our price range (though those are a great place to look if you want the real deal). As for my costume, I scoured every costume store I could locate for a non-skanky nurse costume. I finally found one that just consisted of a white button-up dress with a little red cross on the chest pocket. Though a white button-up, tshirt dress would also look great. I used one of my white sweaters, but I believe the actual Kiss photo has her wearing a long-sleeve nurse dress. I bought nude stockings with a back-seam from American Apparel and wore nude pumps. Be sure to do the 1940s style hair and makeup (youtube has some great tutorials) and add on some pearl stud earrings. Other than his costume, it is a very easy costume that you can likely put together with things you already have. And of course, make sure to do it with a guy that can dip you down for a kiss :)
