This Gotye and Kimbra couples costume from the music video "Somebody That I Used to Know" is the perfect topical costume for Halloween 2012. If you haven't heard the Gotye song "Somebody That I Used to Know" on the radio or seen the music video you must be living under a rock. With over 300 million youtube views it is one of the highest viewed videos on youtube EVER!
I love it because its not an overly flashy music video, but it still fascinating to watch. Throw on a leotard + some body paint and you have a great story and costume!
With the help of some friends, I recreated the music video backdrop and costumes with little more than body paint and a pair of leotard. I admit its an edgy costume, but edgy costumes are the best in my opinion!
