Halloween costumes are a source of anxiety for many parents. We're not knocking a last-minute run to the drug store to buy one, but in many families making your own costume is a time-honored tradition. We want to help you get a jumpstart on Halloween costume making this year by collecting and sharing readers' homecrafted (or partly homecrafted) kid costumes from the past few years.
Submit your costume below and stay tuned for plenty of costume making inspiration!

We're looking for great children's costumes that are homemade or partly homemade (even better if it's kid-made!). Our mission is to take away some of the anxiety of Halloween costumes and return some of the fun!

Follow this link to our Homecrafted Halloween submission form to upload a photo and tell us about the costume and how it was made.

We can't wait to see them!
