Store Bought or Homemade Halloween Costumes

Do You Make or Buy Your Kids' Halloween Costumes?

One day it's a clown and the next it's a character from the hit movie of the season. With each turn of the calendar page, kids seem to have a different idea of what they want to dress up as for Halloween. Growing up, my mom, grandmother and aunts would take our costume requests and fashion them from scratch.

Today, many mothers forgo sewing machines in favor of store-bought costumes that come complete with every bell and whistle needed to help lil ones achieve the look they want. By heading to the store, parents can address their children's last minute changes.

Do you prefer homemade or store-bought costumes?
