The cartoon characters
Animated films offer many ideas for Carnival masks and disguises, as the many cosplay shows. For example, if you and he are fond of old time cartoons, an ideal costume is the one with the characters of Popeye and Olivia. “Sailor” style clothes, in both women’s and men’s versions, the inevitable pipe for him and hair gathered in a low bun for you: here, in a few steps you will be one of the most popular couples in the comics. Staying on the same genre, a good idea is also the disguise from Fred Flinstone and Wilma, so you have to buy the already packaged dress or create the dress yourself from fabric remnants.
For lovers of Disney and the genius of their creator, Walt, Mickey and Minnie are a more than valid alternative, not only for children.

If, on the other hand, you prefer characters from the DC and Marvel Universe to the Popeye-Olivia or Mickey-Minnie couple, then Joker and Harley Quinn are for you. Thanks also to the recent release of several films, with the “villains” duo of Gotham City you can indulge both with the tricks and in coloring your hair or, if you prefer, resort to wigs. Are you on the “good” side? So better Batman and Catwoman, where, however, a mask will be indispensable for both you and him. Obviously, throughout the look the prevailing color must be black and, thanks to your costume, you will surely be very sexy and sensual for this Carnival.
The characters of the films
For couples who love cinema, taking a cue from a famous two of Hollywood lovers is one of the most popular ideas. For example, with a pair of leather leggings, coordinated with a black jacket and a T-shirt, you will be the perfect Danny and Sandy by Grease. Just add a little make-up on your face, cotton your hair and comb your partner’s hair with glitter in a retro tuft: a simple costume to create and with a surprising result. Always keeping the film theme with John Travolta, but this time in the seventies, why not reproduce Saturday Night Fever? A black and white suit for men and a red suit for you: really easy and original!
Finally, for incurable romantics, an excellent idea is to reproduce as Carnival costume one of the most loved couples, namely Jack and Rose of Titanic. For your partner, you need light pants and a shirt, but above all braces. For you, however, an elegant dress, with various precious accessories. The last touch concerns your hair: you can decide whether to make a wavy hairstyle or, for an even more successful disguise, whether to opt for one of the authentic ginger head wigs, as Rose was in the film.
