Halloween is just around the corner. Have you opened those boxes of Halloween decorations you kept in the attic? Have you bought those ingredients that you’ll need for your Halloween-themed cookies? How about the Halloween costume? Have you picked what outfit to wear what for you and your partner? Why don’t you make this season even more unforgettable by wearing coordinated costumes. The two of you will definitely look better. Here are a few simple ideas for costumes.
Super Mario and Princess Peach
Be the characters from classic and most epic game ever, our beloved plumber and damsel in distress princess. For the Super Mario costume you will need, of course, blue overalls, a red cap, a red long sleeves shirt, white gloves and brown shoes. Now, Princess Peach wears a Pink gown with a blue gem and white gloves. You can also add a tiara for a more princess-esque look.
Shrek and Princess Fiona
To make a Shrek costume this Halloween, you will need a pair of plaid pants and a pair of brown boots, and a brown vest over a cream of white tunic shirt. Since Shrek’s skin is color green, you can paint your face, neck, and hands green. You can also buy a Shrek face mask if you want to. And don’t forget his ogre ears or horns.
For your lovely wife, Princess Fiona, you will need a floor length blue or green velvet dress. Her hair is red so you need to dye yours or just get yourself a wig that you can braid. Do the same with her skin and ogre horns.
For our gentleman of the night, you can be an “Irish Car Bomb”. Here’s what you need to do. Wear a green outfit, out a license plate on your bottom and some car stickers, and other mini car parts glues into your body. The lady should then be Bloody Mary, quite literally. She should wear a red dress, a “Mary” nameplate written in red ink, and some blood all over your face. Its fun and something you can make from what you can find in your home.
Suspects from the game Clue
Let’s say Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet. It’s not that hard to look for costume for Professor Plum in your closet. Think of a college nerd professor. You will need to wear a purple suit that fits a bit too tight and add thick glasses to round out the look. Using your make and hairsprays, make him look like he’s a mad scientist or something.
Meanwhile, Miss Scarlet is a young, witty, and attractive. Put on a tight, red dress, stilettos and look sexy. Her character knows that she is pretty and she uses that to her advantage.
The 80s was so colorful and it was the decade of punk rock. You and your wife can be Michael Jackson and Madonna. Dressing like the late King of Pop you will need to wear tight fitting black pants that is a bit short or you can just roll that up. You will also need a tall white sock with black leather shoes, a white t-shirt layered with a red or black long sleeve shirt, left open. Then, his other signature accessories includes his Aviator sunglasses, black fedora hat and, of course, his sequined glove.
Go back to the 80s and be a “Material Girl” this Halloween. During that time, Madonna was indeed a trend-setter. For a Madonna costume, you will need a camisole style top with a black push up bra underneath, lace ruffled skirt, headpiece, gloves and pearl necklace. Don’t forget your red lipstick and put on some heavy make up. Do something about your hair and make it look messy, and then tie it up to one side. Put on a purple leggings and a lot of bracelets.
