A few weeks ago I asked for some ideas for what famous couple Will & I should dress up like for Halloween... without putting in too much effort or money 🙂 While I got some GREAT suggestions (Harry Potter and the Golden Snitch will be saved for the pregnancy years), we had a definite winner.
And the winner is… Susanhho with the idea of Forrest Gump & Jenny!!!!
Easy enough, cute enough, street-clothes-ish enough, and recognizable enough to be the perfect costumes for us!! And if you need a quick and easy costume, here’s how it’s done:
For me (Jenny): White lace skirt with white tank top, chambray vest (really fur or suede would be better if you have it), headband around the forehead (the sparklier the better), and loads of layered jewelry. For him (Forrest): Red hat with “Bubba Gump” logo taped to it, short-sleeved plaid shirt, khaki pants (pulled a little higher than usual), white gym socks, and magic shoes (aka. tennis shoes).
Done! Halloween success story for the ages! Thanks again, Susan! Legitimately, email me your address and I’ll send you some Halloween candies 🙂
