Melania Trump & Donald Trump Couples' Costume Ideas That You Can Make At Home — PHOTOS
Superman and Wonder Woman. Jay Z and Beyoncé. Salt and pepper. These are all fine ideas for couple's costumes. But you don't want just fine, do you? If you and your significant other are still trying to think of a couple's costume for Halloween, then look no further. This year, dress up like the ultimate couple — a potential next president and first lady (shudder) — with these Donald and Melania Trump Halloween costume ideas. Sure, we expect to see hordes of Donalds on the streets this Halloween, but is he really complete without the lovely Melania by his side? And while their house might be literally made of gold, you don't have to spend a fortune on your costume with these DIY ideas.
Of course, if you have extra dough to spend on perfecting your Halloween costume (perhaps you're entering a major contest, or you're Heidi Klum and Seal circa 2010), then you can hit up Barney's for a sharp men's suit and a sparkly embellished gown that Melania herself would wear to a red carpet event. But if you're like most of us and your budget is not the size of Trump's ego, then you'll want to scour secondhand stores, discount stores, and eBay for your Trump duds. Or as a compromise — because Melania would never be caught dead in secondhand clothing — you can browse Rent the Runway for that perfect "being the wife of a real estate tycoon is tough" dress.
Lucky for you, I've already done the leg work. Here are seven Donald and Melania Trump costume ideas that you can make at home.
Note: For all of these costumes, you can use the same suit, white button-down shirt, and wig for Donald; just switch out the tie.
