Inspired By Pop Culture
1. Meat Dress & Butcher (a la Lady Gaga at the VMAs)
Butcher: White T-shirt, white pants, white apron with blood stains (use red food coloring or fake blood), meat cleaver (can be real, or for a safer option, one made out of cardboard and tin foil).
Meat Dress: Take a plain white cotton dress and use red markers to create a "meat pattern" a la this outfit. Wear a long white wig, a sparkly necklace and bracelet, and any other over-the-top, Gaga-esque accoutrements. 8 Smart, Sassy Single-Gal Halloween Costumes [GALLERY]
2. Eat, Pray, Love
Partner one (Eat): Chef's hat, apron and mixing spoon, or any food costume. For example, wear brown, carry Hershey kisses and be chocolate; wear green, carry a bag of arugula and be lettuce, etc. To be authentic to Elizabeth Gilbert's book, be a bowl of pasta by wearing a red shirt festooned with several yards of pale yellow yarn and balls of mixed brown and red yarn.
Partner two (Pray): Any costume with religious connotation—a priest (long black coat, white collar, cross, bible); a Franciscan monk (brown bathrobe, brown hood, rope around your waste, cross around your neck); or a sari with a bindi on your forehead to represent India (where the "Pray" portion of Eat, Pray, Love took place). What Your Couples Halloween Costume Says About Your Relationship
Both: Then, when someone asks you what you are, kiss and say, "We're Eat, Pray, Love."
3. Justin Bieber & Fan
Bieber: Unless she or he has anything like The Bieb's hair, the Bieber half of this couple must buy a Bieber hair wig, happily available at justinbieberwig.com. Pair that with a hoodie, jeans, some bling, big sneakers and a spot of fake blood around the temple where a bit of hair has been torn off by an adoring fan.
Fan: In addition to the costume's requisite lock of Bieber hair in hand, doll yourself up in fan-girl gear: a Bieber concert T-shirt, denim mini and an arm full of silly bandz.
