We spent a combined $18.00 for the Homemade Pee Wee Herman and Miss Yvonne Couple Halloween Costume. We bought both Pee Wee’s light grey suit and Miss Yvonne’s pink polka-dot dress at Thrift stores. I would recommend going down a few sizes on the suit because the one Pee Wee wore was pretty snug.
We bought the polka-dot ribbon for her hair and also some red felt which we cut into a bow tie at a fabric store. We already owned the white shoes, collared shirt, socks and pocket square. White loafers are ideal, but any pair of white shoes should work. We also already owned the pearls, red poof wig (from a previous Peg Bundy costume) and the petticoat (from a previous Oktoberfest costume).
Be sure to apply make-up generously. Our Pee Wee and Miss Yvonne costumes were a huge hit! And as a tip make sure the party you’re going to has the “Tequila” song on the playlist.
