DIY Couples Halloween Costume: Instagram vs Reality

October 13, 2020

Halloween season is upon us! For my first Halloween post of the year I wanted to bring you a funny DIY couples Halloween costume. (Check out last year’s DIY couples costumes if you missed them!) Today I’m bringing you an easy DIY Couples Costume: Instagram vs. Reality!

We all need a little extra laughter in our lives this year, and this super quick and easy DIY costume will be sure to get some laughs. Here’s all you need to quickly make this DIY costume.

Instagram vs. Reality DIY Couples Costume:

The Outfit:

Stick with something simple like jeans and a t-shirt – a shirt that your partner (whoever your ‘reality’ is) has a similar color to. Same with shoes- wear something that your partner can match the color of.

The Hair:

Get a wig for your partner that is similar to your hair color/length. Then, add a similar/matching hair accessory (bow, hair band, hat).

The Signs:

Find a color image of the Instagram logo and font and print it out on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper. Type out the word “Reality” on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper and print that too. Glue or tape each to a piece of cardboard. Poke holes in each cardboard sign and thread string through. Tie it off so it sits as low or as high as you want on your body.

That’s it! Such a simple costume but so (hilariously) accurate when it comes to what we see on instagram versus reality, right haha!

Instagram vs Reality Materials/Shopping List:

Hope you love this costume idea! I’ll be sharing more costumes here on LegalLee Blonde over the next two weeks  – check out my Halloween header to not miss any Halloween content. I’m also sharing Halloween makeup looks over on instagram. Check out my Halloween Makeup Reel that I posted yesterday!

Have a great day everyone! I’m off to get my hair done this morning (it is so in need of a trim and some highlights!) and then will be working on blog stuff this afternoon. Should be a great Tuesday!

    This is actually a very clever and cute costume idea! When I first saw the post I was rolling my eyes because I was assuming it would be the standard typical costumes of like, PB & J and others we’ve all seen a million times. But this is a really fun idea!

    cute & little
