Sure, there are plenty of fresh and original costumes ideas out there, but one San Francisco couple is giving everyone a run for their money.

“(Girlfriend) and I decided to be homemade army men for Halloween this year,” Reddit user britishracinggreen posted online. “Bazooka Girl and Telephone guy. Her bazooka was made out of simple sewer pipe, and my telephone was made from a recycled Clarisonic box I found in the trash. Here we are waiting on the train platform before we head into the city.”

The bases they’re posing on are made out of spray-painted cardboard, which they simply carried around with them all night. And speaking of spray paint, there was a lot involved in the costume preparation.

“For my suit alone it was about eight cans of primer, and then maybe six cans of green,” britishracinggreen said on a Reddit thread. “Problem is the paint will be soaked up by the fabric that you need time and many many coats with separate primer dying overnight, etc. My suit needed more than double of the paint cans you have so it might be a real challenge with only six cans.”

As a result, the Reddit user said, their costumes became “stiff as a board” from all the paint.

“(I)t was hilarious trying to get our shoes on,” he wrote. “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.”

And how were their costumes received by their fellow San Francisco residents? People loved it.

“We posed for a bunch of people, in front of the train, inside the train, on (the San Francisco Municipal Railway), as the … train rolled in, etc. It was completely fun and everyone loved it when we would strike a pose,” he wrote. “It was fun chatting it up with people from all over.”
