I think Homemade Halloween costumes are cuter. DH says they scream "my parents are too poor to buy me a costume!" Which do you prefer?

Depends on the quality of the home made costumes
And I make my girls costumes
by buttercup627October 10, 2012 at 9:40 AMI think real homemade costumes are creative and more fun then generic, and usually making a costume is more expensive then a $20 bag costume. However there are some parents that cheap out with "homemade" and it looks thrown together and cheap. I think it depends on effort :)

Homemade is always pretty sweet because when you get compliments it makes them just that much better :) I'm not against storebought though, they have some pretty crazy costumes out there lol.

I buy some things from the store to go with my homemade costumes. (Sorry but I just don't want to make fairy wings!!!! LOL)
by hautemama83October 10, 2012 at 9:42 AMDepends. I've seen some really shitty looking homemade costumes, and really shitty store bough ones.
by bmw29October 10, 2012 at 9:42 AMIt doesn't matter to me. It's up to DS but if it's store bought I usually end up having to modify in some way and if it's homemade it usually costs me more. LOL

Your DH is right, unless you're some super creative person that can make a fabulous costume without breaking a sweat, but that just screams "look at me i can do stuff because im perfect" and makes me want to punch you in the throat.
