You know what they say, ‘the couple that dresses up as green army men together, stays together’. Or something like that. Redditor BritishRacingGreen and his girlfriend went all out with the Halloween outfits this year and turned themselves into life-size green army men.

Together, they roamed the streets of San Francisco, posing and taking photos with their telephone box, toy gun, and bazooka. Of course, every awesome Halloween costume needs ample time and effort to create it. Their outfits and props were coated in primer and later on, spray-painted green – save for their own skin, of course, which was applied with green makeup.

BritishRacingGreen’s thoughts on the experience of creating it and actually going out with it: ‘It was insane. For my suit alone it was about 8 cans of primer, and then maybe 6 cans of green’. And he adds, ‘[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’.
