DIY couple Halloween costume: The Princess and The Pea

For our first Halloween as a married couple we were The Princess and The Pea, you know from the children's story. I really wanted to be something clever and catchy and I had thought of this idea a couple months ago. Clark thought it was a good idea as well and so that is what we went with. Most people got what we were and some people had to be told that it was a couple costume and not just one or the other. Some people guessed Clark was a pear, frog ?, Mike Wazowski (from Monsters Inc.) but once they realized it was a couple costume then they got it right away.
How we made the costumes:
Carlee's: The Princess
-Pink Senior Year Prom dress
-Pink crown
-Hair and makeup 

Clark's : The Pea
-We ordered this beach ball online
-And paper mached it
-Cut the holes out for head, arms, and legs.
-Bought a mini sample paint from Home Depot and painted it green
So this was our 2013 DIY Halloween Costume. We were very happy with how it turned out and since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I like having a great costume. It is also really fun to have a partner in crime to dress up with. I am already thinking of what we should be for next year... What do you think?
love, Carlee
