Looking to liven' things up around here? Me too! Let’s get silly and have some Date Night fun! It’s time to change out of those sweatpants and put on your creative cap! Get ready for Themed Dress Up Date Night!
Between you and your partner, pick a theme. From the theme, both of you pick characters to dress up as!
Here are some themes to get you started:
Popular Music Artists
Once you pick your theme, raid your closet to create your character! Put together your look by using clothes, make-up, scarves, wigs, old boots or paper. Dig out that faux fur shawl your grandma gave you. That old shade of lipstick you never use; pull it out. Use whatever you can find to bring your character to life.
Pictured above is an example of what I did with my partner! I dressed up as Carole Baskin from the Netflix series Tiger King. Hence why my partner is not pictured!
To create a Carole Baskin inspired look, I found a picture online to work off of and went wild! In order to achieve Carole’s lipstick color, I mixed eyeshadow and chapstick. I dug into my crafting supplies to find excess yarn and paper flowers. Fashioning them together, I tied it around my head to recreate Carole’s infamous flower crown. In an attempt to look older, I even exaggerated my wrinkle lines. I grabbed the biggest earring I owned, and boom! My Carole Baskin character came to life.
Keep in mind, this is meant to be a surprise! Don't let your partner see you until the final reveal.
But, most of all, just have fun!
