Have a halloween party this weekend? The best and worst part is coming up with a costume. I'm not a big fan of going to the Halloween super stores and paying a $100 for a cheaply made costume. I love the creativity and adventure of coming up with unique characters.
Awesome Homemade Halloween Costumes
I did hit an all time low one year though... One of my kid's had a costume that was quite thin and it happen to be freezing outside. I put her in head to toe pink (had an ugly pink winter hand-me down coat), and added matching hat, scarf, gloves and pants. Then made a sign that said Pepto Bismol and hung it around her neck. She was only 5, so she didn't object.
I'm very fortunate to have a mother and a daughter who know how to sew well, which takes a big chunk of the effort out, but there are plenty of ideas out there that don't require sewing and will still cause the fellow party goers to gasp in admiration.
