  • I keep them! My mom sews one from a pattern for both kids every year. I have 1 boy and 1 girl. When I get another baby, I plan on recycling some costumes lol.

  • I'm putting them in a box in the hall closet to get out on wintry days for dress up.

  • I just have one costume so far! It was my son's first Halloween, sooo I'm going to keep his costume in my memory box! I'm just a little sentimental...

  • I have always bought costumes I can wear more than once. This year I was a pirate and my five month old was a ballerina. I dress her in the tutu once a week from the time she could fit into it because it's adorable. I wear my costume constantly because I'm a costumed tour guide. If you can't use the costumes for public display, let the kids play 'dress-up'. My brother lets his son dress up as a ninja and werewolf when he gets home from school.
