For a humorous couple's costume based on 2010 current events, riff on the Tiger Woods Scandal (or, as it's also known, "comedy gold"). This is all about the props, so don't skimp on them. This costume will re-create the incident that started the whole scandal, featuring Tiger and Elin Woods.
What you need:
- Golf outfit
- Long blond wig
- Latex wounds, scar putty and/or adhesive bandages
- Golf club
- Steering wheel
- Fire hydrant prop
You won't need to do anything for Tiger Woods' hair, just put on a white baseball-style cap. For Elin Woods, you'll need a long blond wig, which can be desheveled with hairspray or maximum-hold gel.
Pre-made lacerations can be found at any costume shop to attach to Tiger's face, or use scar putty to create the cuts Tiger Woods allegedly came away with after he drove into a tree that day. Too much? Paste on a couple of Band-Aids. Remember, costumes should be exaggerations--if you like, give him a black eye with a bit of purple or blue makeup. No makeup for Elin Woods.
Tiger Woods should be in golf clothes, with Elin Woods in a bathrobe.
A prop steering wheel says "car accident," especially with a plastic fire hydrant in Tiger's other hand (props can be attached to the belt of the costume with rope, if desired). Pay attention to detail: a red hydrant is OK... one that's been painted silver and mint green? Perfect. The golf club is Elin Woods' prop: have her brandish it in her robe for the full effect.
