My costume is of an old lady with a door who hands out candy to all the "cute trick-or-treaters" who knock on her door. This old lady giving out candy costume took about a week to construct, and withstood many material changes. The door is completely handmade out of foam board and wooden frame. It's also fully functioning, including; hinges, a door handle, a knocker, and a mail slot. After completion, I took it around my dorm knocking on their door, then standing behind mine, waiting for the resident to "trick-or-treat".
I got this idea from the website MLIA, where one person said "I grew up in a college town, and one Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trickortreaters; but what was in front of our open door, was another door! Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said "Please knock", so we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc, who proceeded to coo over our costumes; and tell us we were "such cute trick or treaters!". One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house. MLIA"

We're both girls in the same sorority and we decided that since we fight like a married couple all the time that we were just going to be an old married couple. So the day of our Halloween outing we picked our clothes and white hair spray to make our Homemade Old Couple Costume. We made the costumes so great however was the makeup that was applied to our faces that made us seem older. I personally did our makeup and learned how to do it by looking up videos on YouTube. It was so funny to see our friends enter the party and do a double take because they thought we were an actual old couple. We even had people move out of the way for us because they thought we were someone's grandparents!
The whole night we decided we were going to be in character so I carried a newspaper around, we used words like whippersnapper and danced and walked like an old couple!
