Cool Homemade Couple Costume Idea: Garfield and Jon Arbuckle

Much of our shopping for supplies took place at thrift stores. We shopped around at a few locations to find the correct colors for Jon’s pants and shirts, and the orange Garfield hoodie. Garfield’s skirt and tights were purchased new to match the color of the hoodie.

A photocopier and fabric paint were used to make Garfield’s face, which we sewed onto the hood of the sweatshirt, along with a stuffed tail with the black diamond markings. Jon’s eyes are drawn, colored, and mounted on cardboard, then affixed to a wooden skewer.

We ventured out on Halloween night to a local Italian restaurant and shared an order of lasagna!
