Ladies, if your boyfriend or husband is bashful about wearing silly costumes, but you want to make a splash at the costume party, you can put together some costume ideas that will allow you to show your wild side without having him wear something he feels is embarrassing. They key to finding great couple costumes when you have a shy guy is to choose a couple costume where the guy can dress as normally as possible. Here are some costume ideas you can use.
Cowboy and Saloon Girl Couple Costume:
All he needs to wear are basic jeans, a bandanna boots, a hat, and possibly a holster and gun set (fake). You on the other hand can go all out with a knee length skit, with a crinoline slip underneath and high heeled boots. Wear a corset top, and add a big curly with with a feather in your hair.
Zorro and Senorita Couple Costume:
Dress him in a all black from his shirt, to his pants, and shoes. Add a black cape and simple mask, and find a fencing sword for him to carry. You on the other hand can wear a ruffled Spanish flamenco dance dress with a fan type headpiece with a lace veil.

For the man who refuses to dress up in any way, pull his own khakis pants or shorts, and matching shirt (beige) out of the closet. Hand him a big net, and he is done. You, can dress as a butterfly by wearing a black unitard and making huge elaborate wings and adding pretty face paint.
