If you're planning on dressing up with your partner this Halloween, this costume inspired by Fantastic Mr. Fox is a super cute idea. For Mrs. Fox, decorate a yellow bodycon dress with red and green fabric markers, drawing apples all over it. You'll decorate a yellow server's apron the exact same way. Finish off the costume with fox ears, painted-on fox nose makeup, and some paintbrushes to keep in the apron. Mr. Fox's costume is easy: have your partner wear the same fox ears and nose makeup, khaki pants, a white button up shirt tucked in, and a tie. Voila!

If this year's Halloween party leans more spooky, this costume is perfect. Plus, it's quite easy to put together if you're in a pinch for time.

Wear the recognizable mask with a black slip dress, black gloves, and shoes of your choice – then you're good to go.
