Tete Buriasco on October 22, 2015:

Thank you for the very good ideas!

Joe Sellers on October 14, 2015:

Great Idea I just wish my kids would go for it instead of having to spend a lot of money on something they will only where once.

Angela Mesquita on October 10, 2015:

Thanks Deborah Diane , ha I love the birds too :)

Deborah-Diane from Orange County, California on February 19, 2015:

Incredible Halloween ideas ... or perfect for lots of other types of costume parties, too. I love the costume from "The Birds." So clever.

ezzly (author) on September 22, 2014:

Ha ha very true ! Happy Halloween to you too!

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.

ezzly (author) on September 20, 2014:

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.
