Are you planning to make Halloween costumes for you two this time? That’s a great idea since DIY projects are always more economical than purchasing a whole new dress or suit for just one night. However, there are various factors to keep in mind while you set out to create Halloween couple costumes.
Involve your partner
When the topic is about “couple” costumes, both of you have equal say on the choice of the theme or outfit. Thus, involve your better half while choosing the Halloween costume idea. If you have kids, involve them too. Try to find a theme that can be implemented by the whole family together. For example, the Frozen theme. You can get the elsa dress for the little one and you two can dress up as Queen Iduna and King Agnarr.
This is one of the most important tips to keep in mind while getting into a DIY Halloween costume project. Remember, you will have to make not one but two dresses. If you have kids, you may have to make dresses for them as well. From choosing the right theme, to shopping for supplies for it to finally sitting down to create it- there is a series of things that have to be done. So, plan at least a couple of months ahead of the day.
Understand your DIY skill level
Be mindful of your DIY skill level before you set out to get the supplies for your costume. If you are not a master seamstress, it’s better to skip out on elaborate designs. You can rather try to opt for much simpler options that will be easier to put together. In other words, avoid those projects which appear to be way beyond your current skills level.
Be careful of comfort factor
Both of you would be wearing the outfits throughout the night. So, make sure to go for comfortable options.
