Happy Halloween, lovebirds

With All Hallow’s Eve making it’s ghostly return in a matter of days, I’ve been contemplating what costumes my love and I would wear if work didn’t get in the way and if my mind weren’t already in the Northeast, eating poison candy apples in Salem.  It’s difficult to think of DIY couples’ costumes when there are all of those super clever (not!) ‘bacon and frying pan’ and ‘plug and socket’ ready-mades, but here are my top eleven DIY couples’ Halloween costumes that are easily made with some sewing skills, vintage clothing, and copious amounts of face paint.  Enjoy!
