With Halloween coming up, you and your sweetie have probably been invited to a party or two. With economy on a roller coaster, you may be afraid to go all out, and spend a lot of money on costumes. There is a solution for you. You can put together a costume for you and your significant other that is both funny and creative, by using things you probably already have in your closet. These ideas are also very amusing, so if you and your loved one have a sense of humor, you can be a success at the party by just getting a little creative in your own home.
Dressing up as food or condiments is both amusing and creative. You and your partner can dress up as something like salt and pepper. This means one of you wears all black, and the other wears all white and you put a label somewhere on your body letting other people know what you are.
The same idea works if you want to be mustard and ketchup or peanut butter and jelly. You might want to spend a little on make-up if you want to paint your faces the appropriate colors, but you can achieve any of these amusing costumes by using things you probably already have in your closet.
You can also make your costume a play on words, in a very simple and inexpensive way. One really easy phrase to costume is Ebony and Ivory. Again, one of you dresses in black and the other dresses in white. You could also go as Honeymoon, where one of you dresses to give the impression of the moon, by wearing blue and yellow, and the other either makes a honey pot hat, or wears a neutral color and labels themselves as a honeypot. Night and Day is another phrase to play with, with one of you dressing as night wearing black, and painting a moon on your face and the other wearing yellow, and painting a sun on their face. Hot and Cold is another good one, you can use by wearing blue and red. Again, you can probably achieve these costumes by rooting around a little in your closet.
If you and your significant other have a penchant for acting, there are many things you can do that will turn ordinarily clothing articles in your closet into a hilarious show-stopping act at any party. One idea for this is, going as a celebrity and the paparazzi. One of you dresses up, and wears sunglasses, and the other follows you around all night with several cameras. Another funny idea is that of me and my shadow, where one of you wears normal clothing, and the other dresses in all black, follows you around and mimics everything you do. Both of these ideas are a lot of fun, and nice to your wallet.
If your budget is tight, you can still have fun on Halloween, but using articles you probably already have in your closet. Just because you are using items you already have doesn’t mean you can’t be convincing. Half of the fun of Halloween is pretending to be somebody or something else, so if you choose to be your husband’s shadow, you had better follow him around and mimic away. You will find that you can have a blast on a budget, and the people around you will definitely be entertained by your amusing antics.
