GUYS, I am here to tell you that this is an extremely easy and fun Halloween costume that requires NO SEWING!!! That's right, all you need is a hot glue gun and some supplies. If you and your man are looking for a fun couples costume, try this one out!
CLEOPATRA AND JULIUS CAESAR
2 White t-shirts
2 White bed Sheets
Maroon Silk fabric (yards depending how tall the guy is)
Gold fabric (1 yd)
Black fabric (1 yd)
Turquoise fabric (1/2 yd)
Hot glue gun
Gold sequin elastic
Gold string beads
-Cut strips of gold fabric to make wrist cuffs and belts.
-Fasten them together with velcro
-Drape sheets over like a dress or skirt and fasten with safety pins.
-Cut black fabric into a circle for your neck and decorate how you want with gold and turquoise fabric.
HIM: cut gold leaves out and glue onto elastic.
HER: cut strands of gold beads out and glue to gold sequin elastic. Cut a snake shaped head out of gold fabric and place in center of head piece.
As far as makeup goes, there is a great video tutorial by Kandee Johnson you can watch here.
Also if you don't want to go as extreme with the hair like I do (yes I cut and died it just for this costume) then I suggest a wig. Amazon is a great place to find a wig! Fun tip when it comes to wigs: add a little bit of baby powder to it to get rid of the super fake shine and makes it look more like real hair!
