This year for Halloween, my boyfriend wants to be a COCKROACH.  Yes, that gross, icky, disturbing bug!

You can buy them online, but he's pretty crafty himself and has made papier mache heads for costumes in the past -- like this Ralph Wiggum costume.  (Another photo here.)  I'm sure I'll be sewing part of this cockroach costume.  Smiley 

Two years ago we were Cookie Monster and a Girl Scout for Halloween...  I'd love another couple's costume! 

Any ideas?

If he's going as a cockroach the first thing that comes to mind for me as a companion costume is an exterminator. A nice jumpsuit with a nametag, some long rubber gloves, a pump sprayer with a skull and crossbones on it, etc, etc. You could even make the pump sprayer into a backpack with the hose going to a painted water gun in a holster. That could be fun.

Exterminator -- I like it! 

I was thinking, "Maybe I could be another bug...  A lady bug?"  But that's boring!!

My friends and I always used to joke that come the apocalypse, the only survivors would be cockroaches and Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones, so that was the first thing that came to mind when I read your post! I don't know how you feel about dressing up like a guy, but Keith wouldn't be too hard to put together - some thrifted clothes, a funky long necklace, a fake guitar, and of course his trademark head scarf and some eyeliner.

So fun coincidence:  My first thought was that DH and I always joke that after the apocalypse, it'll be cockroaches eating twinkies, and that you ought to go as a twinkie!  Or, a can of raid (easily accomplished with a slinky black dress that's stenciled.)  Too fun!

What about La Cucaracha? According to Wikipedia, the song becaome popular during the Mexican Revolution.
Maybe you can dress up like a lovely senorita with maybe "La" on your top - so when you stand next to each other "La Cucaracha." Just a thought......man... he wants to be a cockroach, really?

You can always dress like Beatle Juice or a character from the movie Joes Apartment. Just a thought. A cockroach, really? Man guys really are different than girls.

We both like the Keith Richards idea!

And the idea of dressing like a senorita is funny!

Yes, a cockroach!  Just the idea of cockroaches gross me out!  I'm getting the shivers right now.  Which is probably giving him great joy in knowing he grossed me out a little bit.  Smiley
