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

Materials Needed:

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

Velcro

Gold sequin elastic

Gold string beads

Elastic

Safety Pins

Gluing:

-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.

Head Piece:

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!
