My boyfriend and I decided it would be funny to dress up as Jon & Kate Gosselin. I figured I would just buy the wig and he would wear an Ed Hardy t-shirt and we would call it a day. However, the costumes took on a life of their own once we began thinking more about the details.
In addition to the wig, I purchased eight dolls when, attached together, made for a great accessory! We both wore labels with funny verbiage – ‘Media Whore’ and ‘I love my kids!’ ‘Jon’ wore ‘Douchebag of the Year’ and ‘#1 Worst Dad’.
We live in Los Angeles and went downtown for a large party. We had no idea we would get the reaction we did – people treated us like real celebrities and wanted to take our picture all night long. Everyone knew who we were and congratulated us on great costumes! We had such a great time and really enjoyed these characters!! However, at the end of the night, we were relieved to not really have 8 kids!!!
First off you have to understand that this homemade John and Kate couple costume consists of two males,(Myself and my Roommate). I the submitter is Kate. I purchased a wig that looks like Kate's hair and I also purchased the top. The skirt and the heals were provided by a friend.
My roommate is John. He simply did his hair and bought earrings. We then purchased 8 little plastic babies and pinned them to our outfits and carried them around all night. We were the talk of the town. People would ask us to take pictures with them and they would show us off to their friends. It was a wild and crazy night in Morgantown West Virginia. WVU
