The soon-to-be-married duo make the perfect couples costume!

Between the bright outfits and blue wig she pulled out for “California Gurls” and her fiance’s goth-rock style while promoting his latest book, Katy Perry and Russell Brand are definitely going to be uber popular costumes this year! If you’re dressing up alone or looking for a cute couples get-up this idea will definitely work for you. While there are a slew of costumes in stores, you don’t have to break the bank on a pricey get-up to recreate this look. For Katy, all you need is a pair of old denim short-shorts and some crystals — while you may not be able to scoop up a pair of the custom-made bejeweld Diesel mintha’s, you can easily make a pair of your own at home!

And, while the infamous cupcake bra may be a little too risky for some, a bejeweled pink corset-like tank can easily do the trick — just fasten on the lollipops with velcro or glue, throw on a blue wig and you’re ready to go!

For Russell, I recommend that your guy skip out on shaving until he grows in the appropriate amount of scruff — next, all he needs is a super skinny pair of black jeans or leather pants and a tight white shirt. While the quirky actor often wears an open white-button down, a tight white tee can do the trick for cheap. Pair the get-up with boots, and feel free to throw on a vest or leather jacket and a couple of long necklaces and rings — (I’m sure he can probably borrow the jewels from you!). Since everywhere he goes lately he has his book in hand, I think it would be the perfect prop. All that’s left is a wig and you’re ready to go!
