My husband made the mistake of mentioning to me that we should go as Dean Venture & Triana Orpheus for Halloween. Apparently, he wasn't serious...

For those that are unfamiliar with the Venture Bros cartoon and the characters, I included a picture of the two characters I found online.

I made Triana's tshirt from a kid's medium tshirt I picked up at Joann's. I used a freezer paper stencil and several coats of white paint to make the skull & crossbones for her shirt then trimmed the neck & sleeves.

I also made Dean's (a.k.a. my husband) "sweater" vest. I do not know how to knit or crochet so I made it with some flannel and bias binding I picked up at Joann's. I used one of his tshirts as a "pattern". I didn't take any in progress photos because I was not originally planning on entering the challenge.

The rest of the costumes used items we already had or borrowed from my dad. I picked up the tights & wig a couple weeks ago.

No one at the party we went to was familiar with the show so that was a letdown. Note to self for next year: dress as less obscure characters or become friends with more people that watch the show.

This is awesome! I was actually considering going as Dean and Triana with my husband, but we didn't dress up. I'm so jealous now.

I love this so much! And I can totally sympathize with being a character so obscure nobody knows who you are for Halloween. I've been Bunincula the Vampire rabbit from that book series, Princess Python from The Avenger comic book, now I just 'dumb down' (that's not the right, phrase....) my costumes depending on who'll be there. But I love Venture Brothers, and personally would have shreiked and jumped up and down if i'd seen you guys.
