Do you and the kids do them up or do you buy new?

 We usually buy them used or after the prices start to drop but this year I think we are going to try making at least one. That is if they don't change there minds again about what they want to be.

One of my kids lets me make her costume.  The others really want store bought.

I like to buy store bought, then I spice them up with hand-sewn or hand-made things. Like I'm making a pair of bats wings for my daughter's dress, and some fox ears for my son's swordsman outfit.

 I fully and completely sew the costumes. I buy the fabric and pattern (and sometimes use no pattern or alter a pattern to my liking) and homemake all the cotumes. Its cheaper and better quality and I am to cheap to buy costumes.

We make them. I really look forward to it -- almost as much as making their birthday cakes!  It's a great opportunity to let them be creative with their ideas and not have to be limited by what the store sells.

The kids decide what they want to be and then I make them.  They make all (at least most) of the decisions regarding the costumes.
