couple costume ideas

Can you believe it's October?!  I'm so glad we're heading into cooler weather, and the holiday season.

One thing Matt and I have always loved to do at Halloween is come up with a fun couple costume idea.  With Halloween coming up in just 30 days, I thought it would be fun to share the costumes we've done the last few years
Pilot & a Stewardess in 2008
This was our first Halloween together and we were just 19 years old.  We bought both of our costumes...

Charlie Brown & Lucy in 2009
This was one of my very first sewing projects, when I sewed this dress by hand, and Matt's costume was easy with black shorts, a cheap yellow polo and some black paint.
Fred & Daphne from Scooby Doo in 2011
Matt's outfit was simply blue scrub pants, a basic white sweatshirt from Walmart, and a blue polo he already had.  I found this purple sweater dress in the girl's department for like $8 and paired it with bright pink tights (not shown).  The orange, purple, and green sashes and my headband were all made from plain quilters cotton.
Edward & Bella from Twilight in 2012
This was really a last minute thing, so don't make fun of us!.We already owned our clothes, so we picked up some white face makeup to make ourselves look a little less alive (it didn't take much)...
Nick & Jess from New Girl in 2013
Again, we already owned everything here.  My glasses are actually sunglasses that we temporarily popped the lenses out of.  The key for Matt is comfort, which we always seem to achieve.
 Here are a few of my favorites from around the web...

Mary Poppins & Bert
Johnny Cash & June Carter
Sheldon & Amy from The Big Bang Theory
Ariel & Prince Eric
