Coolest Homemade Doug and Skeeter Couple Halloween Costume Idea
I’ve wanted to be Doug and Skeeter for awhile and finally found somebody this year that wanted to do it with me. I’ve seen a couple of Dougs around the years but never with a Skeeter. We decided to make the Doug costume his alter ego Quailman. The majority of the things needed for the homemade Doug and Skeeter couple Halloween costume idea I either got at the thrift store or Wal-Mart.
For Quailman I bought 2 yards of red fabric for the cape and the Q on the vest. I found the sweater vest and the belt at the thrift store, and had the shorts, tee, and underwear already. Skeeter was a little more difficult. I had to buy 2 yards of yellow fleece to make the sweatpants and lightning bolt because it is impossible to find yellow sweatpants.
I made the red knee pads from the same fabric from Quailman’s cape. Good luck finding the right color blue for skeeter. I went with a generic blue from a Halloween store. Last but not least red Chuck Taylors to finish the costume.
Got a lot of compliments on how spot on these costumes were.
