Transcript:Contemporary and Historical Couple Costume IdeasHi, I'm Ron Diamond, owner of Ronjo.com Magic and Costumes, with great costume ideas for couples. Historical couples are always a popular costume choice.
Greek Goddess and Roman Soldier Couple CostumesYou'll be the envy of the party when you come in as a Grecian goddess and a Roman warrior. With a real helmet, armlets, sword and sandals, you'll have all the details to look at home in ancient Rome. And our goddess is wearing a lovely blonde wig with decorative arm jewelry and matching gold belt and sandals. Her golden laurel helps to keep her wig in place, and some skin-colored leggings are an option if the skirt is too short for your comfort level.
Medieval King and Queen Couple CostumesNext, we have a king and queen, again with a real sword and rhinestones on their crowns that really make them sparkle and come to life. The queen is holding a beautiful fan and purse with a royal wig and tiara. The boot covers mean that our king can wear comfortable shoes to the party without sacrificing the authentic look of our royal couple. All of the accessories really make the difference in making a couple look just like royalty.
Pocahontas and Prospector Couple CostumesHere we have Pocahontas and an old prospector. They look right at home on the range because they have the costumes to match as a couple. The mask that he is wearing has an incredible feature that allows him to wear his costume all night. The mouth opens and moves naturally, letting him talk and breathe, even eat and drink, without the mask getting in the way. Our Indian princess is wearing a frilled dress with a ceremonial headdress and carries a lightweight spear with a rubber tip. The headdress is comfortable to wear and will keep her hair in place as she dances at the party. Sometimes the details really make the costume, and in this case our crusty old prospector has a prop cigar. You can smoke at the party because the cigar is fake! It glows and discharges a harmless smoke, allowing the partygoer to stay in character without offending the other guests.
