Ready to wine and dine: The amusing pair transformed into grapes using purple balloons and stick on paper leaves
Stepping far outside the traditional Halloween box, the creative duo came up with a range of entertaining ideas – from using balloons to transform into a bunch of grapes to donning bras stuffed with spices to represent a ‘spice rack’.
The pair also embraced the digital world with their costume creations by wearing explorer get-ups and wearing stick-on ‘E’ symbols to represent ‘Internet Explorer’ and wearing a ‘Myspace’ logo and wings for a ‘dying social butterfly’ costume.
Other notable looks included the very contrasting festival numbers, ‘everyone at Coachella’ and ‘everyone at Burning Man’, and an amusing ‘Snapchat filter’ inspired costume.

Taking things to an even simpler level, the women then slipped into matching jumpsuits so as to represent a ‘shadow’ before tying orange pillows to themselves in a bid to transform into pieces of sushi.
They also used food to accessorise a number of their costumes – from strapping bags of crisps to their shoulders to represent ‘a chip on your shoulder’ to holding loaves of bread as ‘breadwinners’.
Other entertaining costumes included ‘Peanut M&Ms’, created using pictures of Eminem stuck to a garbage bag and ’50 Shades of Grey’ which they created by dressing in several grey garments.
