  • I try to keep it around $15 each. Luckily my younger daughter often wants to wear costumes that my older daughter had worn a couple of years before, so that helps. I'm not one to drop a wad of cash on something they'll wear ONCE!

  • no more than $10-15. so far, i've bought one the last three years and he's refused to wear them, even when it was his idea to pick/choose. so, not gonna spend anything this year! lol.

  • Where are you guys finding these lost cost costumes? I get stuck paying $50 for my kids costumes....granted one is 10yo so his costumes are a little bigger. but even when he was little I never found anything under $50.

  • The most I've spent was $20, I don't think I'd go over $30 for one. But she wears them until they don't fit anymore when she plays.

  • Never more than $5.... you can get the best ones at garage sales and thrift stores. When my older boys (now 16 & 17) were little we would only pick up costumes every other year, because they would swap them. I saved the best of them so my son who is now 5 has a complete collection for the next 7 years!

  • I make the kids' costumes using found materials, so they cost nothing.
