Halloween Costume Help Needed

We are invited annually to a friend's home for a party. I am running out of ideas for costumes for myself and my husband. I would like to be able to put something together and not purchase anything much. Any ideas anyone?

I am 5'3" and 116 lbs and DH is 5'9' and 176 lbs. Hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance.

One year my husband and I went to a party as King Kong and Fay Wray.

I've seen everything from babies to doctors/nurses. What about two felons from a chain gang?

I've seen Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction

Bonnie & Clyde

You could also dress as each other. You be the husband and he'll be the wife.

Mermaid and Neptune

King and queen of hearts

George and Martha washington

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie from Mr & Mrs Smith

Marc Antony and Cleopatra

Dr Jekle and Mr Hyde


Good luck

I had some friends who went as Adam and Eve one year. She bought long underwear, dyed them flesh color, then appliqued felt grape leaves to the appropriate areas.

One of the funniest coustumes I have seen was this girl who had big pieces of cotton or something glued all over her body. She was carrying a squirt bottle filled with water. When someone would ask what she was she would say "cloudy with a chance of showers" and then would squirt them with the water

When in doubt, grab a couple of bedsheets, some ivy from the yard and design some togas. To-Ga..To-Ga!

A couple came to one of our parties, and they had both worked long hours without a lot of time to put into their costumes. They came as "Buttons and Bows." Both wore black pants and black tees. She had sewn old buttons all over his tee and had sewn bright little bows all over hers. They really looked cute, and everybody loved it. In fact, I think they got the prize for Best Costumes.
