Homemade Couples Halloween Costumes, Worker Bee & Queen Bee

It’s almost Halloween, and all procrastinators are hurrying around trying to get a costume together.

So I figured I’d share the design I made for the super-cutesy, matchy-matchy homemade costumes that Kim and I put together last year.  Worker Bee & Queen Bee.

The real costumes came out amazingly-similar to the drawing – with the addition of big, oversized sunglasses… yellow frames for me, and rhinestones for Queenie – and were well received at the party.  Kim found a yellow shirt with black stripes, and I put the stripes on mine with hockey tape.  The yellow hardhat was just a few bucks at the Home Depot, and the jewelry was easy to find in the kids’ toy aisle… I already had the tool belt.

So there you go – if I’ve saved one procrastinator’s Halloween, then I’ve done my job.

Happy Halloween!

UPDATE… I’ve been meaning to upload a photo of the finished costumes, but have totally forgotten… until now…

This isn’t the best photo, but it’s the only one I’ve got handy… and don’t ask me why I’m standing like that… I blame the steps :)
