Halloween--Anyone Making Costume(s)?

Anyone making a costume for Halloween for either yourself or a child?

I wish I could. I want to be "Snow White" in "Snow White & the Huntsman" and my child wants to be a Power Ranger, Angry Bird, or a baseball player.

My son wants to be a diesel locomotive. Even if I wanted to I don't think I could buy a costume for it so I'm making it. I finally got the bare bones of it done tonight so I'm about 1/3 done.
Last year he wanted to be Thomas the train so I made him one and he still plays with it out in the yard. I just hope the one I'm making now will last as long since its taking a lot more work to make.

I want to make them tutu costumes. I need see how much it will actually cost. I saw a peacock one that was really cute and my 4 year old wants a princess one. Saw a cute Indian one too not sure what the baby will be yet.

 I am making a bodice for my daughter. I made a tutu petticoat this year to go under her skirts. I made her chemise last year. I also have to make a renaissance poet shirt for my son and pants for both of my sons. I made their doublets last year, but they outgrew their pants and one of the shirts. I am also making their candy collection bags with an elastic side pocket to hold a beverage, muffin hats and belt pouches and cup holders to keep their mugs on their belts.
