Coolest Roy Lichenstein’s Pop Art Couple Costume
Attached are pictures of one of my favorite costumes to date. After days of brainstorming, my boyfriend finally came up with the idea of a Homemade Roy Lichenstein’s Pop Art Couple Costume and little did we know it was right in front of us! a costume rendition of Roy Lichenstein’s pop art “The Kiss” which I have a copy of framed above my bed.
I love costumes that require awesome make up to the point that at the end you can’t really tell it’s you under it all. For the makeup which took a couple of hours to do on myself and my boyfriend, I used wet to dry face paint from Ricky’s NYC. I bought a yellow bob wig which I later styled into a cooler “do” with lots of hairspray. I work in fashion design and my company has a great closet loaded with vintage finds that we use for inspiration where I found this great sixties polka dot dress.
I bought the red “Jackie O” jacket at “Loehmann’s which I returned after Halloween. The tights were layered, yellow on bottom, fishnet on top. The super cute shoes I borrowed from a coworker and the accessories I bought in thrift stores and just piled them on.
My boyfriend’s sweater and shirt we found at a cheapy store for like less than $20 altogether and his polka dot tie I found at the Salvation Army for like a buck! Over all, the make up was probably the most impactful aspect of the costume, the outfits just added a bit more.
Hope you enjoy!
