My hubby and I like to dress up in couples' costumes for Halloween. This year, I saw some simple Mr. and Mrs. PH costumes online, and knew what I wanted to do!

The body is just a big piece of felt, and I made all the face pieces out of felt as well, then sewed the hook side of velcro onto the backs, so they are removable - you can totally make different faces on the costumes!

Here are some versions:

My hubby wasn't available for the phot shoot, so I played the roles of Mr. and Mrs. PH, but there are two potato bodies along with the various facial pieces. I am still planning to make a couple of bows (for a bow tie and a hair bow) as well as a hat. If you have thoughts for other PH accessories, feel free to give me ideas!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

Edited to add more pics with the added accessories!

New hair, a nose ring, earrings and a hair bow:

Scar, cigar, hat, bow tie!

At the party:

And notice how the Mister's eyes are looking a different direction here:

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
