There comes a rite of passage in every couple's relationship -- no, I'm not talking about buying a home, first dinner party, or spending Christmas with each other's families -- I'm talking about dressing up together as a couple for Halloween.
Like Romeo & Juliet, Barbie & Ken, Mickey & Minnie...
Or in our case, Dwight & Angela. Everyone's favorite oddball couple from The Office.
At first I suggested that we dress up as the fake pimp and fake prostitute that busted ACORN since, as the movie "Mean Girls" says, "Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." But on second thought, neither of us was too comfortable with the idea of me dressed like prostitute (even an imitation of an imitation of a prostitute).
But when I suggested that the Mr. dress up as our favorite character from The Office, Dwight, the obvious choice for me was uber-conservative, up-tight Angela!
I put together this collage of "Dwight & Angela" inspiration to help us determine the best outfits.
Dwight attire requirements:
- Brown slacks
- Short sleeved shirt in brown, yellow, or light green
- Ugly tie
- Drug store glasses
- Digital watch
- Belt with phone attached
- Middle parted hair with gel
- Sign that says "Fact" (optional)
- Beets (optional)
Angela attire requirements:
- Pencil skirt in black, grey, or pastel
- Turtle neck
- Cross necklace
- Stuffed white Cat to be "Sprinkles"
- Tights in black or grey
- Side part hair or headband
- Argyle (optional)
The best part is that we already have most of these items, so it won't cost a ton of money! Do you have any ideas for items that would complete our Dwight or Angela ensembles?
What you going to be for Halloween?
