Halloween is in less than two weeks and I still have no clue what costume I should wear. Last weekend, I bought the toddlers’ costume. I found a cute police uniform for kids at the Salvation Army in Royal Oak and a Monster High costume at the Sterling Heights location. I need to get costumes for the baby and teens. I would also really love it if Travis and I dressed up, but what we should be?
I don’t want to spend a lot of money on costumes and we’re not into the scary stuff. It would be really cool if we could find a couple-themed costume for Halloween— one that we can make ourselves and spend the least amount of money as possible.
So to help with my search of inexpensive, DIY costume ideas, I turned to a consultant who is a mastermind at DIY crafts and projects— Pinterest!
I searched and searched through Pinterest and was able to narrow my search down to ten costumes I really like. What do you think of my list?
Also, you can follow me on Pinterest here. 🙂
10 DIY Halloween Costumes for Couples
I know for a fact Travis and I could pull this costume off. He already has a black and red plaid shirt and he has a beard to complete the look! We don’t have a dog to be the ox, though. Maybe we could dress the baby up as Blue Babe?
Creepy-Denim Clad Horse People
Travis and I could pull this one off pretty easy. All we’d need are denim clothes (check) and giant horse heads. I saw at Walmart they sell giant horse heads for under $12.
Brenda and Dylan from Beverly Hills, 90210
I chose this costume idea because I LOVE 90210! When I was a teen, I had the biggest crush on Luke Perry. In fact, I still watch the show on Hulu!
I think it’d be pretty easy to find a prom dress and suit from Goodwill or Salvation Army. Not sure if I’d be able to find one just like Brenda’s, but I could certainly get creative in recreating the look.
Stanley Cup and Hockey Player
This costume looks like a pretty easy DIY idea. Just get a Detroit Red Wings hockey jersey or shirt and a sparkly dress. Add the NHL sign to the dress and voilà!
Everyone knows the famous kiss photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a sailor kissing a woman in NYC. It’s also known as “V-J Day”— Victory Over Japan Day. I think this would be a cute costume idea for couples.
Remember when the “Embracing Peace” art sculpture by Seward Johnson was in Royal Oak last year?
Clark Kent and Lois Lane
What a fun costume idea, right! All you need is a Superman shirt, dress shirt, and dress pants. For Lois Lane, you’ll need a blouse and skirt. And don’t forget the glasses! This costume would probably be super cheap, too, because you probably already own most of the items.
I love this costume idea! Find an apron and pair it with a dress. For the guy, get a blazer to wear over a pair of overalls. If you don’t have overalls, then a white t-shirt with blue jeans would work just fine.
Forrest Gump and Jenny
Travis really loves this Forrest Gump costume. He thinks it’s very creative. He already has a shirt and a pair of khakis similar to this. Only thing is with his beard, he may make a better Forrest who was running across the country. Remember that scene when Forrest had a beard? LOL! Also, the 10 Best Beards in Movie History is a fun read.
“No one puts Baby in a corner.” This looks like a really fun costume for couples. The guy wears all black and the girl wears a pink dress. I think Travis and I could pull this one off. Not too sure about his dancing skills, though, because he’s not much of a dancer. 😉
Let’s see, I’ll need a striped collared shirt with a long sleeve white shirt to go underneath. Fold my skinny jeans and pair it with some sneakers. Travis will need a “Vote for Pedro” tee and tuck his jeans inside of his boots. Oh yeah, and a fanny pack, can’t forget that. Yeah, I think we got this one covered!
