Halloween is just around the corner!
I have opted out of dressing up for Halloween the past few years, but this year we bought tickets to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We decided to go all out and dress to the nines.
My husband and I have had a special connection with the movie Up. The theme of enduring love and seeking adventure has always resonated with us as a couple. In fact, our engagement photos were Up themed.
We went back and forth between a few ideas (Mary Poppins & Bert, Indiana Jones & Marion), but we ended up deciding to dress up as our favorite couple.
These costumes were surprisingly easy to put together, and the best part was how comfortable they were to wear throughout the party. So here is everything you will need to pull off this lovable couple!
Yellow Shirt & Brown Sweater Vest:
We were able to find these easily at our local Goodwill. Both items only cost us around $5.
Overalls & Shirt:
I found these overalls at TJ Maxx. I haven’t worn overalls since I was a kid, but I fell in love with this pair. I ended up just going with a shirt that I thought matched the outfit(not a replica of what Ellie wore).
Grape Soda Pin:
We had a grape soda pin from Etsy engraved for us back when we did our engagement photos. Luckily, we were able to track it down and use it for our costumes. At the last minute, we decided to get more pins to add to our look. We got these from the Pin Trader’s at Disney Springs.
Aviator Goggles & Hat:
This was the hardest thing for us to get. We found some at Party City, but we really didn’t like the quality or how they looked. We searched and searched through many stores. We ended up ordering aviator goggles online through Amazon for $9 each. We had to buy the hats separately at a local costume store. They were little pricey at around $22 each. This was by far our biggest splurge and I think you could use Party City’s pair if you wanted to do this look on a budget.
This is another item that we had tucked away from our engagement shoot. We specially ordered our book from Etsy a few years ago. We saw a few Carl & Ellie’s at MNSSHP that didn’t have an adventure book. I don’t think it is a MUST to have it and people will still recognize you if you aren’t able to get one. But hey, if you are crafty you might be able to make one of your own.
We had a blast dressing up as our favorite Disney couple! We got a lot of compliments on our costumes while we were at the park, and that made all of the hard work feel worth it!
Do you have any plans for Halloween this year? What are you planning to dress up as?
