Homemade or Store-bought Halloween costumes?
Out of the 12 years of trick or treating as a child I had 2 store-bought costumes. The rest were homemade and were the best costumes ever. My daughter acts like this is unheard of andnobody makes there own costume so I wanted to see if this was true or not.

I prefer home made costumes it economical and you can design your own all the way..
Definitely homemade. I can take a few items of clothing normally destined for the trash or from a thrift shop. I am working on a hobo costume fot this year and the basic costume itself I found around home and the boots I bought for $2.00 at a thrift shop. Figuring I'll spend about $20 total including accesories and a button for the jeans.
