Homemade Adam and Eve Couple Costume

My boyfriend and I decided that we wanted to do a couples’ costume this year. The idea first started off that he wanted to be an Indian. After that I did some research and came up with the idea of a Homemade Adam and Eve Couple Costume (after the fall).

I went to a craft store and bought leaf bunches, like you would use in an arrangement and pulled off all the leaves. I also bought a garland of ivy leaves for the head wreathes. I took gold glitter paint and painted each of the leaves to give them a sparkle.

We took men's bikini briefs for him and a pair of underwear for the bottoms. I found a bra that snaps in the front and cut the sides off under the armpit. I took clear elastic and sewed it across the back of the bra (Eve didn’t wear leaves on her back). I hand stitched all the leaves onto the garments making sure to cover all the fabric.

For the snake, I brought black knit fabric and sewed it together like a cylinder. I stuffed it with cotton and wire so it would wrap around the arm or neck. I used red felt for the tongue and bear eyes for the eyes.

All in all this Homemade Adam and Eve Couple Costume was a very easy costume to construct but time consuming.

Halloween was approaching fast, and I had waited to the last min (AS ALWAYS) to get a costume or put one together. My boyfriend decided he wanted to do a couple of thing this year and we started putting ideas together, such as cowboys and Indians, cops and robbers, etc. and we ended up doing a Homemade Eve Last Minute Halloween Costume.

I went to a fabric store and bought a couple of yards of leafy green fabric, fake leaves and green glitter. I went home and found an old bathing suit top O never wore and proceeded to pin the fabric all around it with safety pins until the fabric was covered. Afterwards, I began to line the border with face leaves. I used the remainder of the fabric and leaves to make myself a skirt. I topped it off my putting dabs of green glitter on my face and wrapped a snake around me.

My boyfriend got a little shy towards the end and wanted to back out, so in the end he ended up going shirtless and I let him wear the snake so he had something. But, I was VERY proud of my EVE costume and more excited than ever to rock it and wear it on Halloween!! I love my costume!

Coolest Homemade Eve Costume 9

Homemade Eve Costume

Unfortunately I didn't have an Adam to join me, but I still LOVED this homemade Eve costume. It was so easy and cheap to make, here are the steps!

1.) Find a skin-colored bra you won't mind ruining.

2.) Purchase a couple bags of various leaves. (I stuck to green and gold, but you can use whatever you want!)

3.) I stapled the leaves onto my bra because I didn't have enough time to super glue them. Just to warn you, the staples were really uncomfortable!

4.) For the skirt, it's actually an old white pillow case because I didn't want to ruin my good white skirts. I just cut it to the length I wanted and stapled the leaves on and some flowers too.

5.) I finished it with a brown belt and brown boots (flip flops would've gone better but October is really cold in Buffalo).

And its that easy! Enjoy!
