Salt and Pepper
An easy Halloween costume suited for a pair. Simply get a black t-shirt and a white t-shirt and label with a P and S with silver paint. For an extra touch, get matching hats and add silver dots to cap off your look with a shaker.

Festival Queen
This is a great disguise to make from an old bridesmaid or formal dress. Use white ribbon to create a sash and top off your look with a crown that is fit for a queen. Take our quiz “What Southern Festival Queen Are You?” to find the right title for you sash.

Pineapple or Strawberry
For this costume, choose the t-shirt color based on which fruit you would like to be: yellow for pineapple; red for strawberry. Then use green construction paper to create leaves, which you will attach to a headband. For a pineapple, create a taller stem of leaves, and for a strawberry create a shorter, wider bunch. This is another idea that is made for a pair.

Jack-o’-Lantern
Start by wearing an orange shirt and sweatpants. Using black paint, create the face of your jack-o’-lantern on the orange shirt. Create a stem by forming a circle with green construction paper and attaching this to a headband.
