Although this costume took some convincing, I realized how perfect it was when we were easily recognizable as "Wayne and Garth" from Wayne's World. The story behind the convincing was one day where my hair was a mess and I was wearing my glasses, (seen here in the photo), Dave said with excitement: "You look like Garth! We have to go as Wayne and Garth for Halloween." Which I responded with: "Thanks a lot babe, you think I look like a dude." Needless to say his convincing worked and here we are at the Haunted Hollywood event at the Royal BC Museum this past weekend.
The best part about this costume was the simplicity of it. As mentioned before I already owned the glasses, as well as the jeans, converse, Rolling Stones t-shirt and the messy hair. The only thing I bought for the costume was the plaid shirt at The Patch for under twenty dollars and the drumsticks I borrowed from a friend's boyfriend. For Dave's costume we had the hat made and he had to buy the wig, but the rest he had in his closet.
Hope this inspires you to look at your own wardrobe for ideas for next Halloween!
