Pretty Woman is my favorite movie of all times and I have wanted to be Vivian for Halloween for years. I finally decided to make the costume this year.

I purchased the white tank and Red jacket at a consignment store, and the material for the skirt, ring, and boot pleather at a fabric store. I did not use a pattern, I actually put on the tank and drew the lines on the shirt then cut the "v". I then attached the ring and wrapped the skirt material around myself, pinned it, and cut and sewed until it fit like a glove.

I did the same thing with the boots and they easily pull on and off and can be worn tucked into boots or alone with heels. I altered the red jacket and sewed Velcro onto the pockets so I could carry a cell phone/lipstick etc. I found similar jewelry to finish off Vivian's look and decided to leave my hair curly instead of a blond wig.

My boyfriend wore a suit with the handkerchief and I sprayed his hair silver.

We had such a blast wearing this Homemade Vivian and Edward from Pretty Woman Couple Costume. We were at the casino Halloween party and everyone was commenting how much they loved our costumes. Pretty woman is such a "feel good" movie that so many people love.

Hi, I purchased the red jacket at a consignment store and then did some alterations to it. I think it might have been at Savers Thrift Store. I am also not sure if I still have this costume. I will have to take a look and get back to anyone who wants to purchase it.

Coolest Homemade Vivian and Kit Couple Halloween Costume 7

 Homemade Vivian and Kit Couple Halloween Costume

Homemade Vivian and Kit Couple Halloween Costume

I have wanted to be Vivian from Pretty Woman for years now but I didn't know how to sew. This year I bought a sewing machine and started ordering all the different parts of the costume. The jacket was purchased on EBay and the dress was modified to include the silver rings (bracelets) in the front and back. I also used fabric spray paint to tie-dye the skirt. My roommate also decided to join in and be Vivian's roommate, Kit DeLuca.

My favorite part of this Homemade Vivian and Kit Couple Halloween Costume was all of the detailed pieces we added. My boot had a safety pin and I had dental floss on hand. The Kit costume was also complete with the envelope full of money that Vivian left for her at the desk. We also made necklaces with "Kit" and "Viv" just in case people didn't get it at first.

We had so much fun acting out the different Vivian/Kit scenes from the movie, especially the scene where Vivian is approaching the car and Kit is cheering her on. These costumes made the night really fun!
