Parks and Rec is one of my favorite shows of all time. If you’re a fan, you’ll recognize Burt Macklin, FBI and Janet Snakehole from a mile away. Love!
This pizza slice and delivery boy costume is pretty cute. All you need is some cardboard and paint for the pizza slice, and just reuse a take-out pizza box for the guy’s costume. Easy peasy!
If your hubby or boyfriend is already a hunter, he’s all set. Dress yourself up as a deer for this deer hunter couples costume.

One of you can dress up as a pinata and the other as the birthday boy or girl. Just make sure there are no ill feelings before handing over that bat!
