Home Made Halloween Costumes



When I was growing up, my mother always waited until the last minute to get us something to wear for Halloween. We usually ended up picking out some plastic costume from the local store and going with that.




Though this was okay, it was not ideal. When my brother was in second grade, he had to dress up for school but my mother had no time to get him something. This was when I discovered how much fun home made Halloween costumes could be. Mom didnt have the time to help him, as she had a newborn, so I took over with great results.

Though having a boy dress up as a girl is probably a pretty common idea for home made Halloween costumes today, it was not quite as common when we were growing up. I took what I could find in my room to make him into a very convincing looking little girl. Because he was only eight years old at the time, the only thing that I had a problem with was his hair. He was sporting a shaved look and I did not have a wig for him to wear. I had plenty of everything else to go with his home made Halloween costumes however, and he looked funny enough to crack up our cranky bus driver, whom we had never seen smile before that moment.

No matter what type of home made Halloween costumes that you want, you can usually find things around your home to make them. You can fill in what you do not have through a variety of sources. Thrift stores are always great for things like prom dresses, wedding dresses, and even suits that wont cost you a fortune. You can also find things in department stores or craft stores. The biggest variety of fun things you can get to go with your home made Halloween costumes are going to be things that you can only find online. Just remember to order early.

When you try to go with home made Halloween costumes, keep one very important thing in mind. You have to get started early, especially if you think the costume that you are going for is going to be extremely complicated. You want to have time to mess up and start again, which is what is going to happen when you have a really great idea of which you have never seen anywhere else. You are starting from scratch with some of your home made Halloween costumes, and you dont want to be left with nothing if you start too late and can not get it right.
