Celeb-Inspired Couples Costumes
These famous couples make perfect alter egos
1. High School Musical‘s Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens.
Lend your man some guyliner. Toss on a frilly dress and headband. Break into song and dance as often as possible. Pour straight sugar down innocent bystanders’ throats.
2. Mad Men‘s Don Draper & Joan Holloway.
Go retrosexual with some voluptuous vintage garb from your local thrift shop. Instruct your date to comb Brylcreem through his hair and slip sexual innuendo into every conversation. Stuff your bra for that busty Girl Friday look. Pour hard liquor like water.
3. Ellen DeGeneres & Portia di Rossi.
Dress your better half in a white suit, tie and short blonde wig. Glam yourself up with a used wedding dress from Goodwill (or use your own – you know it would love to come out of its box and stand up for gay marriage!) Finish your look with a blonde updo and matching “No on Prop 8” buttons.
4. Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn.
If your guy’s taller than you, have him wear the long blonde wig, miniskirt and vacant expression. You take the three-piece suit, white wig and prim condescension.
5. Lindsay Lohan & Samantha Ronson.
You and your sweetie toss on identical fedoras, vests and ear phones. Accessorize with vinyl records. Kiss as often as possible. Attack anyone with a camera.
6. MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow & Dan Abrams.
Are you and your dude androgynous doppelgangers? Then these, dear friends, are the costumes for you!
