##Putting together your John and Kate couple’s costume##

Step 1: Ladies (or gentlemen, if you want to do a humorous role reversal!) pick up the Mood Swing wig in blonde with a bob style and longer on one side than the other. It’s already in two-tone shades of blonde, but if you want to, add some light brown low-lights with a brown magic marker.

Step 2: Take your scissors and cut the hair at the back of the wig so that it’s spikey. Add some mousse to add some texture and volume.

Step 3: Do your makeup and put on a pastel colored dress.

Step 4 Add some accessories like a book (with your own homemade cover), a Blackberry, and a bag full of organic food. Practice shrieking “Joohhhhhnn!!” at the top of your lungs for maximum effect.

Step 5: Guys (or ladies), get into costume with a Hair Plugs wig. Grab some black spray-in hair color and carefully add it to the wig to give that “fresh from the doctor” look.

Step 6: Put on a button-down shirt with an argyle sweater vest over the top. Wear with a pair of jeans or khakis.

Step 7: Use your own wallet and pick up an extra-long laminated photo strip and insert pictures of eight kids (hey! They don’t have to be the Gosselin brood!) and carry it around.

Step 8: Pick up an inflatable doll and carry her around with you on your arm to make your “Kate” uber-angry!
