Perfect Pairing: The Art of the Couples Costume.

It's no secret that I love dressing up and Halloween is my favorite holiday. My husband Daniel has really embraced it as well. He now insists that we do couple costumes every year. I tried to go rogue this year as a witch but alas it was to no avail. So here are some of the things Daniel & I have dressed as over the years.
Bonnie & Clyde
(recently deceased)
Apply bullet holes to chest and neck and apply some undead makeup to take it to the next level.

John & Yoko
Don't forget to make signs that say "Hair Peace" and "Bed Peace".
Indian Prince & Princess
(this was for a friends' wedding in India but the outfits translate well for Halloween)
You can wear a bindi instead of a head piece.
Rajasthan Royalty

American Revolutionary vs. British Redcoat
(this was for an Assassin's Creed event but dressing up as enemy forces can be fun and playful)
A bonus if you fight in the middle of the Halloween party. Don't forget to yell "The red coats are coming!"

Al Capone & a Flapper Floozy
(this was at a Murder Mystery party a couple weeks ago- but Halloween perfection! My character called for a black eye - lipstick works great and lasts all night)
Such fun characters to be dressed up like. Don't forget the cigar!
Pirate Captain & First Mate
(this was my 26th Pirate themed birthday-I love being a pirate, what can I say?)
Don't forget to use some pirate slang. Gimme that there flask of ale!
