Posted on

If you and bae have been stressing trying to find the perfect couples' costume, you should look to 16-year-old Samantha Solorzano's parents, Sadie and Ruben. They've just won Halloween — quite literally.

Samantha told BuzzFeed News her parents were inspired for Halloween this year after sitting at a restaurant and noticing two hot sauces, Cholula and Tapatio, were always placed next to each other.

So, for a Halloween housewarming party, they went as Mr. Tapatio and Mrs. Cholula. "As soon as they entered, everyone started busting out laughing," Samantha recalled.

Samantha said everyone was "in awe and so impressed" by the creativity and DIY nature of their costumes.

"The whole night everyone was laughing," she added.

Her parents were so committed to their costumes that Samantha said her dad even put mascara on his eyebrows and mustache. They placed first in the costume contest.

"They won first place by being more creative than just a store-bought costume," Samantha said.

Samantha then shared the costumes and achievement on Twitter because her parents were known among her friends "for being goofy and going all out for Halloween," she said.

But she had no idea so many people — most of them strangers — would also be so amused by them.

In two days, the photos of her parents have been retweeted over 18,000 times.

"My friends all love my parents and I knew they would love to see it," Samantha explained. "I did not ever expect it to go viral."

People have fallen in love with not only Sadie and Ruben's ingenious couple costumes, but with Sadie and Ruben themselves.
