Halloween Couple Costumes
Travel back in time with me to revisit some of the couple costumes Phillip and I wore over the years!
This was Phill and my first Halloween together since we officially became an item on October 24, 2009! His confidence and security dressing up in a frilly pirate shirt and feathered captain’s hat, confirmed that he was a keeper and would be a welcomed addition to my theatrical family!
Phill’s costume came straight from my mother’s costume closet since she was directing theater at the time. My Tinker Bell dress was purchased on discount at Papaya and I got my wings and wand from a Halloween store.
We are both huge fans of Toy Story so making these ensembles was a lot of fun!
My corset, white dress, sleeves and stockings were already in my closet as were Phill’s yellow shirt and jeans. However, we made Phill’s vest out of a cut up t-shirt and black sharpie, and created my shepherds hook out of toilet paper rolls, duct tape and spray paint. Our hats were a thrift store fine and Phill’s sherif accessories were from Dollar Tree.
The Little Mermaid was my favorite Disney movie until I watched Tangled, which remains at the top of my list to this day!
We made Phill’s vest out of a cut up faux leather jacket, which we purchased at the flea market along with his satchel and my lavender dress. I bought my wig at a Halloween store and hot glued pink flowers in it, which came from a Dollar Tree faux flower lei.
My all time favorite musical is “The Phantom Of The Opera,” which Phill and I were fortunate enough to see on Broadway during our recent trip to New York!
We ordered Phill’s Phantom mask online since it was impossible to find in-store. We borrowed his black cape from my mother’s costume closet along with my brown curly wig. I purchased my dress on sale at Kohls and added a white corset on top, which I already owned.
Since most of our costumes over the years had been clothing-focused, I thought it would be fun to do something that involved a bit more face paint!
My faux fur vest and jeans were things I already owned, as were Phill’s clothes. However, I purchased all of the supplies for the accessories in this look from Michaels. I made our ears out of foam hearts, which I covered with discounted fabric, using hot glue. Then I attached our ears to headbands, which I also covered with the same fabric. Our furry cuffs are made out of discounted chicken feathers, which I attached to fabric and secured with velcro. Our tails are large pompoms, which we just tied to the belt loops on our jeans.
Greek Mythology was my favorite subject in middle school so I thought it would be fun to create a costume of the female version of the Greek God of wine, Dionysus. Phill decided to go with the God of the sea Poseidon.
For my costume, I wore a long, white slip dress underneath an coverup I bought at Stitch & Feather with discounted sandals from Kohls. I needed some sort of grapes to make my outfit clearer so I purchased Christmas berry vines, which were already on sale at Michaels, to which I hot glued a few gold leaves. My headband was also purchased from the jewelry section at Michaels, and I carried around a plastic goblet that I bought at Dollar Tree. We made Phill’s armored shoulder pads out of toy plastic shields from Dollar Tree, which we attached to blue fabric we got in the L.A. Fabric District. Phill’s crown and trident were purchased from a Halloween store.
