Are you stuck on a Halloween costume idea for your twins this year 2010? Finding the right twin costume is hard, because you don’t want to use the same old costume ideas from last year such as Two Peas in the Pod, Boring Thing 1 & Thing 2, devil and angel, salt and pepper or The DoubleMint Twins. Use your noggin and be creative.
Some of my favorite ideas for twins costumes this year are a nerd/prep, washer and dryer, happy face and sad face, minions, a barber and a hair stylist, horse and carriage, cat and fish, and even some ultimate Disney favorites such as Mickey mouse and Minnie and Tinker Belle and Peter Pan. To find more twin costume ideas, head over to Hottest Twin Halloween Costumes, and if that’s not enough ideas then try this one Best Halloween Twin Costumes.
So how would you make a washer/dryer twin costume? For the washer you will need white fabric (enough to make a big square to cover the top portion of the body), a few socks to glue onto the washer in the middle, black piece of fabric to make a label and knob, black pants, black shirt, black shoes, and an empty detergent bottle.
Cut out the first white square/rectangle. Make sure you leave a hole in the top to fit your neck/head through and two holes on the side to fit your arms through.
Then cut out another rectangle to place on top of the first one. This is where you will place the knob. In the middle of the washer you need to glue a nice size circle ring, but leave some space in the middle of it to put the few socks. This way it looks like you have socks in the washer.
Find a small detergent bottle, and cut the bottom out completely. Puncture one hole on each side, and place a string. This way your turning this bottle into a hat.
The dryer costume is basically similar except you need a big square in the middle of the dryer and a side door. Make sure to place some socks and some Bounce sheets onto the middle, and also for the hat use an empty box of Bounce with the string.
