I saw one in some catalouge that was pretty cute.
The guy had a chef's hat and an apron that said "THE BUN MAKER" and then the girl was an oven with a bun in it.
(I think I may do this if I am ever pregnant on halloween.)
I've also seen a pretty naughty one where the guy was an electric plug and the girl was an outlet.
Other ideas....

Bill Clinton and Monica
You could be a christmas carol (ie, one of you dress up as a boxer and the other one can wear strings of cough drops and paint a black eye on your face.... "Deck the Halls" Get it?)

My all time fave couples costume was one my ex and I did in the 80s.  I found some silvery slimy looking fabric on a markdown table, and I fabricated a slug suit.  I put a slit in the front at the ankle so I could walk, and had the tapering end trailing behind me.  My husband painted a cardboard drum as a salt box, and then we were a slug and a box of salt.

my other fave was a couple we knew who went as a brick and a bricklayer.  she was in rust leotards and he was in work overalls carrying a trowel.


if you can't lie no better than that......you might as well tell the truth.

I would love to do Hagrid and Madame Maxime this year, but while my husband is perfect for Hagrid, (6'4)  I am a full foot shorter than him.  *sigh*  Not exactly canon.  So I'm trying to decide what we could do with a Harry Potter theme.  We're way too old to be students, (after all, this isn't 90210 - Oh!  Oh!  Go as Brenda and Dyllan!!!!  lmao)  and way to dark to be the Malfoys.

You could go as Tonks and Lupin.

And to the poster of the thread, last year a girl I know went with her friend as a Spider and a Web. She was the spider and her friend was the web. I think thats pretty clever.

My boy doesn't like to dress up either, but after we saw Inside Man earlier this year, he said he wanted to dress up in the coveralls outfit. So we'll be going as the "Busty Woman" that everyone remembered and the main robber guy. Or just 2 hostages  Undecided I'm still wearing my push-up though  Wink Tongue

This is what the costumes look like:

Pretty easy really... Navy Blue Work CoverAlls, Black Glasses, White Face Covering and some latex gloves.

If you haven't seen the movie you should! Its really good, and I suppose the costumes would make more sense if you knew why everyone was dressed alike (I won't tell and ruin it!).

How about velcro? You could each be a side, and if you use some real velcro in there, you can stick together.  Wink


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Ooh...I like that.  I would get to dye my hair again.  lol

That's awesome.  I used to have a pair of earrings like that - one was the spider and one was the web.  My grandfather hated them.  lol

Thing One and Thing Two

That was actually our first idea! does anyone know where we could get one piece red suits or something?
« Reply #38 on: October 01, 2006 01:20:36 PM »

me and my hubby are going as Peter and Lois Griffin (from The Family Guy) and I'm trying to find a Stewie Doll to carry around. we're pretty much just getting our clothes from wal-mart, and I have red hair like Lois, but he might wear a wig. Next year (when my hair is longer)  I want to be the little Mermaid and the Prince. one year I was Daphne and a boy was Fred from Scooby doo. oh and once I was Claire (Molly Ringwald) from the Breakfast Club, and you could get him to be one of the guys too. this is all assuming you either are or would like to pretend to be a red-head, lol.

there's a hole in the bottom of the sea. did you know?

maybe do a google search for footie pajamas for adults? kinda goofy, but it seems like just what you'd need - and let's hear it for being COMFORTABLE on Halloween for a change!
