Coolest Homemade Barbie and Ken Halloween Couple Costume

Last year for Halloween my fiance and I wanted to make a grand entrance so we decided to get some over sized boxes, paint them pink and enter the party as a real life Barbie and Ken Halloween Couple Costume.

First we went to a storage supply store and bought a massive wardrobe box. We cut it into the perfect shape and started painting. After a few hours of painting, including some painstaking time getting the names just right, we slapped a Mattel logo on it, fashioned some handles out of fabric and went to the party. Oh, but before we could get to the party we had to make the two boxes fit into my Honda Accord. THAT was the hardest part of the whole thing.

In the end, we made it fit and walked into the party as Barbie and Ken. All of our friends were blown away. It was an awesome Halloween that we’ll always think back on.
