My kids aren't dressing up this year but my neighbor's kids are going as a pirate and a ninja using things they have around the house. Her husband thinks they should've gone to the store to buy them costumes, saying their "thrown together crap" is awful. I think they look super cute!
Do your kids wear costumes you buy at the store or make yourself?
Once again, this year I spent the past month's worth of free time making a costume for my DD. I'd be just as happy to buy her one, if she ever wanted to be something where I COULD buy a costume for her. It would be so nice to have my October free time back!
