One of my favorite parts of B+C Halloween is being able to dress up my friends and give them a chance to be a model for the day. This week I brought in my roommate Sabrina and her girlfriend Kati to channel their inner animals and TV characters for couples costumes. Follow along to see how to achieve these looks.

Game of Thrones: Daenerys and Yara

Girl_Couple_Costumes-Daenerys-and-Yara_002

Don鈥檛 hate me, but I actually don鈥檛 watch Game of Thrones. I鈥檝e only seen one episode and it was all because of Sabrina! When I first moved in she suggested we all watch an episode for roommate bonding time 鈥 let鈥檚 just say it wasn鈥檛 for me. From what I understand, these two characters have the secret hots for each other and tension is a rising ;)

To create Yara鈥檚 costume, you will need a black turtleneck, dark jeans, black gloves and a black cloak. Purchase a chest piece (we bought ours from Amazon) and spray paint it with granite spray paint to give it a medieval feel. Purchase a long brown wig and use gel to give it a wet/distressed look. Makeup is very minimal but the paler the better.

Daenerys is a vision in that new shade of blue. Head to your local thrift store to find a blue dress and cape. (We made our cape out of a velour bathrobe.) Luckily there are great options for Daenerys wigs online 鈥 we got ours from Amazon for $27. Makeup is pretty neutral, but remember dark eyebrows are key.

Start creating your own plot line for these two characters in the next season of GOT.

Lion and Lion Tamer

These lion and lion tamer costumes were inspired by Sabrina鈥檚 crazy curls. (Curls I would DIE to have!) This couples costume is a breeze to put together 鈥 you might actually have a lot of the pieces in your closet.

The base of the lion tamer costume is khaki pants, a white ruffled shirt, black boots and a red blazer. We bought our blazer off of Amazon at added finishing touches with yellow ribbon and white fringe. Complete the look with a black top hat, black bow tie and scratches over your eye with fake blood.

This lion costume cost about $12 鈥 no joke. We found the tan jumpsuit at a thrift store for $5 and then the rest was just a half of yard of brown fur. Hot glue to create boot covers, wrist cuffs, a tail and ears. Top off the look with crazy cat eyes and a black nose.

And if you can鈥檛 find your lion whip, just use a belt ;)

Cruella and Dalmatian

This couple鈥檚 costume is one that I have been dying to DIY 鈥 who doesn鈥檛 love Cruella and her 100 Dalmatians? Grab your favorite black dress and old white clothes that you don鈥檛 need anymore to create this couple鈥檚 costume.

Head to a thrift store or H&M to find a white top and white jeans for the base of this dog costume. Use black fabric paint to create different sized spots all over the piece. Use ribbon or felt to create a dog collar and finish off the costume with dog ears and a tail. For makeup, use black and white face paint to create a black eye, extra spots and a black nose.

Cruella鈥檚 costume is pretty simple 鈥 black dress, long red gloves and a Cruella wig. A fur coat is a must but if you can鈥檛 find one, stick with a piece of fur fabric. Top off the costume with a long cigarette holder, red lips and an evil laugh.
