Be prepared to break out in song when you stroll up dressed as these two rivals from Pixars’ 2017 film, Coco.
Miguel– Standard red jacket, white tank top, blue denim jeans, sneakers, guitar (optional), face paint (optional). Use the face paint to draw a skeleton on your face.

Bad Apple & CinnaMon
The two unsung hero’s of our generation.

CinnaMon– Brown shirt, brown pants, striped beanie, dreads (Wig can be found at Walmart or costume stores).
Shark & Swimmer
Buuuuuuuudum. Buuuuuuuuudum. Budum budum BUDM BUD! Watch out its a shark!
Shark– After Katy Perrys Super Bowl performance in 2016, shark costumes are a popular item on online stores. Throwback to the iconic left shark.
Swimmer– Any swimsuit. Bonus points if you add fake blood.
Perry the Platypus & Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz
Perfect if your pair consists of an introvert and an extrovert. Either don’t speak at all, or don’t stop talking. “Curse you Perry the Platypus!”
Perry- Blue onesie, Brown hat, Orange swim flippers, orange felt. Cut orange felt in the shape of his tail and attach with hot glue or sew onto the back of the onesie and BOOM! you have a tail.
Doofenshmirtz- Black T Shirt, White lab coat, dark green pants, black dress shoes. Take account of his childhood trauma to fully elevate your performance.
Tarzan & Jane Porter

Jane– Any sort of yellow dress, white tights, brown dress shoes, safari/fishing hat (optional)
Forrest Gump & Bench
Who doesn’t love him? If you have the unfortunate role of being the bench, get ready for a lot of squats.
Forrest Gump– Blue Plaid shirt, creme/white colored suit, box of chocolates (optional).
Bench– Black morph suit, hard cardboard. Cut the cardboard into skinny strips and hot glue onto black morph suit on the thigh and stomach area. When you squat it should resemble a bench. It is highly advised to bring a stool because it might get tiring throughout the night to hold that pose!
