We were always jealous of the kids with store bought costumes for some reason when we were little. Our mom always made ours from clothes and other things around the house. Well- now that we have our own child and see Halloween costumes for 1 year olds for $40- things around the house is sounding pretty good.
You really don't even need to get as fancy as sewing- just think fabric, scarves, and this mask- it's a paper plate. Get creative and look around to see what you already have! Anyone who has any other great homemade costume ideas- please share! You can find more on the superhero costumes at TLC.
