    There’s no point in making your kid a costume unless you actually ask them what they want to be for Halloween first. You can make the coolest, most accurate Sherlock Holmes costume ever, but it’s all for nothing if your son wants to be Iron Man. I love making my kids’ costumes every year, but I make sure they are as excited about it as I am FIRST.

    He’ll appreciate it when he’s older.

    My first Halloween. Wore a sheet over my coat with a plastic Donald Duck mask over my face. It snowed. Had mud all over my sheet. Another year, my mom fixed me up with a great home-made, all-black Zorro outfit. Best I can remember.

    Woo-hoo! Tacky grandmabrag alert – last night the creator of my avatar (who drew it on the computer shortly before or after her sixth birthday – she’s eleven now) won first prize for the best costume among the oldest age group at the annual Halloween skate at our village Lions Club hall (Wisconsin). She wore a black capelike thing, a silly chicken head, and sunglasses. As a pièce de résistance, she carried a fake foot with bloody ankle that she’d gotten at a Dollar Tree the previous week. The foot was a big hit with the younger kiddies, who kept touching it, and a younger boy who fought it with his light saber. (She has assured me that the thing won’t turn her into a mass murderer.)

    When I was a kid, we thought only the poor people had to where home made costumes… And too, my mother was not very creative at all.

    Halloween is supoosed to be fun, if the kid don’t share the enthusiasm and participate. Then this is no fun at all for either parent or kid.

    My first Halloween, probably age 4 or 5, my mother cut two eye holes in a pillow case and put it over my head. It scared me to death, I have always been claustrophobic. She declared that I was no fun and I decided she was nuts.

    I was always excited about Halloween costumes and would plan for months it seemed to come up with a good one-one year my mom and I came up with the best horse outfit and I loved it.

    I intend to NEVER buy the cheap plastic costumes. Even the “well done” ones are pathetic. Sure they’re good for the average person. But I’m into sewing and costume making. My son is 1-year-old so I get to pick what he is this year (and I spent a month making it and paying attention to every detail, course I’m also a slow sewer lol) but in future I’ll ask him and then make it. He’ll have the best, most accurate costumes every year. And I’ll make him any costume he wants year-round too, not just for Halloween.

    And the moral is, “Ask the kid what costume they want before going to all the effort.”
