This Couple’s Awesome Halloween Costumes Are The Best You Will See This Year

This couple from San Francisco probably takes the cake for the most inventive Halloween costume this year.

Reddit user BritishRacingGreen and his girlfriend dressed up as shiny, plastic green army men complete with homemade telephone box, toy pistol and bazooka props, roaming the city and posing with people for photos.

Their elaborate getup was the result of hours of meticulous preparation, which included coating their clothes and props in primer and spray painting them green, and applying green makeup to their skin.

A staggering eight cans of primer and around six cans of paint were used for BritishRacingGreen’s suit alone, and donning it wasn't without its discomforts. “(My suit) was so stiff that it was hilarious trying to get our shoes on. I didn’t realize until the end of the night that my arms were totally cut up on the inside from bending my arm. Ouch! And taking a pee? A military-grade challenge for sure.”

Judging from how cool they looked, all that effort and pain was worth it.

Check out some pictures of the duo in action and their preparation process.
