LAD Dresses Up As His Girlfriend For Halloween And It's Hilarious
| Last updated
We have a winner for the best costume of Halloween 2017. While celebrities such as Will Poulter gave it a good shot as Sid from Toy Story and a number of people created the year's best meme, I don't think anyone has beaten Jamie McEwan, who decided to dress up as his partner over the weekend.
Jamie, 25, has been going out with his fiancée, Hollie Morrison, also 25, for four years and decided to imitate her style after she found a red wig that bore an uncanny resemblance to her ginger locks.
Speaking to LADbible, Jamie described how it came about as the two of them were planning to go to a Halloween costume party on Saturday and he needed an outfit idea. Although he wasn't into it at first, he soon came around.
"It was Hollie's idea, I was looking for a costume and she came across the wig by accident," he tells us. "It was identical to her hair so after we saw it we decided I had to do it.
"She's known for having big ginger hair and a specific way of dressing, so when I copied her everyone thought it was hilarious, and a bit creepy."
Imitating her poses in the pictures, he also took a picture with a fake cat as his wife-to-be regularly poses for pictures with her pet, Ollie.
Their family and friends thought the outfit was hilarious, but as the night wore on, people struggled more and more to tell the pair apart. Will adds: "It started off as a joke but as people became more drunk it began to be more of a genuine mistake."
The two of them are planning to get married in April 2020. On the day, it'll be Hollie wearing the dress, but Jamie doesn't rule out dressing up as her again in the future.
"Me and my mates were always fond of a bit of cross-dressing at parties so never say never," he says.
Some great banter, mate, definitely the best costume we've seen this year.
