For this shoot, I teamed up once again with talented photographer Ashley Thalman based out of Utah (seriously love working with her!). I also brought on brilliant stylist Emily Frame of Bijou Market, who just started an amazing kids blog called Small Fry, and hair/makeup artist Bethany Kartchner of Salon K in Provo, Utah. The fantastic models are my hip sister Katrina and her stylish man Quinn Peterson, who started a fantastic line of handmade mens ties made from vintage fabrics called QP Collections.
The hardest part about Halloween for me is the pressure you sometimes feel as an adult to dress up! In my experience, it’s almost always done last minute when you find out that party you’re invited to is mandatory dress up, and it’s even more difficult when you’re trying to coordinate with a partner. When I was in Utah a couple months ago for the leather jacket post, Ashley and I were chatting about how fun it would be to do a couples costume shoot to brainstorm ideas for you all (and ourselves!) this Halloween.
This week I’m sharing a few ideas for couples costumes so you won’t have any excuses this year to not to join in on Halloween fun. The whole idea behind these costume ideas is that you can throw together something fun last minute with stuff you probably already have in your wardrobe. I’ll share two ideas today and two later this week.
1. First up, Bandits!
If your closet is anything like mine, you’ll have no problem outfitting the whole street in striped shirts for bandit costumes. The bandit bags can be purchased from any craft store, Emily printed a $ sign on the computer and used it as a stencil to make the bags.
