Halloween may be just a memory, but it is never too early to get a jump on next year. The recent news of the engagement between the heir to Britain’s throne, Prince William and his lovely bride to be Kate Middleton, guarantees that this will be a very hot couples costume next year. Get ahead of the pack and start planning now to ensure that you and your mate stand out in the crowd at next year’s Halloween festivities.
Prince William Costume: The handsome son of Prince Charles has very short and close cropped blond hair. Your guy can achieve this look by either wearing a wig, spraying an artificial color into this hair to make it appear lighter or simply style his own hair in a very conservative style. He is a very sharp dresser, as befitting to a future King. Generally pictured in very flattering suits, your guy will have to dress to the nines to imitate Prince William for the night. He may consider this a drawback to the costume, as most people like to dress up as comfortably as possible on Halloween, but I guarantee he will look very handsome.
Kate Middleton Costume: Kate is a lovely woman in her twenties who already displays elegance and class. The has long brown hair generally worn in a loose and wavy style. If your hair is long, use hot rolls or a large barreled curling iron to achieve this very becoming style. A long chestnut brown wig purchased at the party supply store can be used if your natural hair does not even remotely resemble Kate Middleton’s hair. This future Queen has already shown herself to be a budding fashion icon, in the footsteps of William’s mother, Lady Diana. An elegant tailored dress or suit that is somewhat conservative, but feminine will work wonderfully with this costume. She has also been known to wear very dramatic hats to accessorize her outfit. Feel free to add a veiled pill box hat or one that is a little large or a little wild, in the style of the Kentucky Derby. Sheer pantyhose and a great pair of heels can complete the outfit. Keep the makeup minimal and very polished and sophisticated.
Fun Costume Extras: In a lovely and thoughtful gesture, Prince William gave his beloved his mother’s engagement ring. This large blue Sapphire ring is definitely a stunner. A large cocktail ring with an artificial blue stone can be worn on the fourth finger of your left hand to stand in for the famous bauble. Your guy can wear a crown on his head and carry a scepter for a nod to the fact that William is in line to be the future King of England.
