Maybe you're a fan of Montreal bagels, while your boo prefers good, old New York-style bagels (or perhaps one of you even thinks the best bagel is in Virginia). Even if you two can't agree on which bagel is best, you can probably agree that making a DIY bagel and lox costume for you and your bae-gel is a great idea. It's the perfect Halloween costume for a duo on a budget that also loves breakfast. And although making a bagel from scratch is a labor-intensive process, making this homemade Halloween couples costume is fairly straightforward. The only crafting skills you'll need are the ability to cut foam board, use spray paint, and attach things with a hot glue gun—and you definitely don't need lye to make this bagel costume a success.

The best part for a bagel fanatic might be that this DIY couples costume will make you smell like bagels all night long, because you'll be using real everything bagel seasoning. You can get a 30-ounce jug of the stuff for $18 on Amazon, which means that even once Halloween is over, you can still make everything taste like, well, everything bagels. (We unfortunately couldn't find a way to make the lox smell like lox, but that's probably in everyone's best interest.)

So if you love bagels as much as your bae, here's how to make a DIY bagel and lox couples costume.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place the two pieces of foam board together and draw a giant circle with a pencil, aiming to put one half of the bagel on each sheet of foam board. Then draw a smaller circle in the middle. Using a box cutter or X-Acto knife, cut out the two halves of your bagel. Attach with hot glue, and reinforce with tape on one side, if necessary.

Step 2

Prepare the bagel shape as you did with the everything bagel, including tracing, cutting, and painting. The biggest difference is that you will not be adding everything seasoning on the top or cream cheese on the back.
