For this year’s family costume party my mother-in-law chose the theme “Famous Couples”. My husband and I didn’t want to choose something boring or obvious like Bonnie & Clyde or Spongebob & Patrick, so we created this Lady Liberty and the Big Apple Couple Costume. I was dressed like the Statue of Liberty and he was the Big Apple.

All we needed was some turquoise fabric, cardboard for the crown and the torch, a red t-shirt and green fabric for the apple-leaves.

Total cost was $12 (or here in Austria € 9)

Sadly, we didn’t win the Best Costume Award” – the winners were my husband’s cousin and his fiance, dressed as salt and pepper.
