Mackenzie Sage Wright on September 22, 2014:
Great ideas, and great tips-- that baby 'let me out' shirt is just a wee bit unsettling though, lol. Happy Halloween.

Love it! Thrift stores rock! I made cat in the hat costumes by refashioning leprechaun hats I had , just covered them with red and whit fabric :)
Mike from Harrisburg Pa on September 20, 2014:
Definitely more fun. They can be less expensive and last longer than store bought ones. Especially when parts are found around home and are destined for the trash or thrift store. My hippie costume has lasted about 4 years even though I also use the jeans for work/weekend wear.
