My amazing boyfriend agreed to go with me to our friend's Halloween party as Fred and Wilma Flintstone! I made both the costumes, my own patterns. Mine was made from his works old polo shirts (they were slated for the trash since they have the old logo on them) and his was made with orange flannel and peel and stick felt. My necklace was carved floral foam (the green kind) that was then painted. I could have saved a lot of clean up by using those white Styrofoam balls but they were two uniform in size to look like Wilma's rock necklace. It gave a nice rocky-texture too.



My hair isn't as dark as it looks in this photo. It's auburn in real life.

I think we make an awesome Fred and Wilma. What do you think? =)

thank you all for the lovely compliments!

I really hope we have another occasion to wear it. We went to what we thought was a party. It was a small gathering, no one else in costume. Still fun, but not what we were expecting.
