  • It has varied because the same place may not always have the costume your kid really really wants to wear for Halloween. Sometimes the most popular costume of the season is not exactly the costume you want to be searching for last minute either.

  • We make them. Although this year someone gave us a couple and so one child is going to be have a store bought costume. They love making their own.

  • I make them and most of my supplies are clothes I buy at second hand stores and repurpose to make their costumes. My son is a knight this year and I found a great silver/black women's shirt to make his chain mail and a wonderful red top to make the tunic. Black sweat pants he already owns and daddy's belt. I did buy a shield at the store. Daughter is a unicorn and while I did buy her a pink hoodie and sweatpants I am adding the tail and mane and horn from repurposed stuff from the thrift store too.
