Treat or Treat: Sweet Halloween Couples’ Costumes Inspired By Candyadmin May 22, 2012
Sweethearts Conversation Hearts are the best-selling Valentine’s candy, but also provide adorable inspiration for this Halloween’s couples’ costume. Use pastel paints or fabrics to fashion human heart suits and stencil on classic Sweethearts sayings, like “True Love” and “Let’s Kiss” or mix it up with modern messages like, “Tweet Me” and “Poke Me.” The truly creative may even want to play up pop-culture catchphrases like Jersey-spun “Smoosh Me” or Charlie Sheen’s done-to-death “Winning.”
Plain or Peanut
Spokescandy royalty, the M&M’s of today are sassy, sarcastic, and stylish. Choose from friendly yellow peanut, rowdy red plain, gorgeous green, or new kid on the block blue. It’s easy to find M&M costumes for sale, but making your own is quick and easy. Two painted cardboard rounds with straps will do the trick for this costume treat.
Stripes of Love
A candy cane may not be Halloween seasonal, but this original couples’ costume adds a fun twist to dressing up. One person wears all white, the other all red. Alone, it may seem simple, but when the two of you embrace or twist together, you’ll turn into a cute candy cane couple. Enhance the look with exaggerated long sleeves, hooked hats, swirling capes, or tapered coattails for a total twist that looks great in pictures.
Do the Dip
Remember Fun Dip, the candy stick that you lick and dip into flavored powder? Bring back this sweet and sour favorite by stepping out as dip and dipstick this Halloween. One person wears all white and can spray color into hair for a just-dipped look. The other partner can make a dip pouch costume from cardboard or felt, matched to the “dipstick’s” hair color.
Instead of choosing just one candy to inspire your couples’ costume, why not go as candy incarnate? Using plain clothes attach all your favorite colorful confections for a super sweet, one-of-a-kind look. Peppermints make beautiful buttons while lollipop wrappers can fold into cute flower brocades or bowties. Go crazy with creativity and turn on your partner’s sweet tooth.Treat or Treat: Sweet Halloween Couples’ Costumes Inspired By Candy,
