On a halloween costume? For yourself and/or for your kids. I'm looking online for a toddler costume and seeing several for $50-60. Who spends that much?!

I make my kids' costumes. I'd say I probably spend no more than $30, but some of the stuff I can reuse the next year. I will not buy one of those "already assembled" costumes you see in stores.

This is what I always did....made them. And usually bought an accessory or 2 to go with them.

I certainly don't. I use little pieces of costuming and match it to stuff I buy at the thrift store.

I would spend as much as $50 on a costume for my kid, if I had to. Most of the time their costumes cost between $20 and $30. Halloween is a big deal for us, so if they want something elaborate, I'm all for it.

I have yet to see a "quality" retail costume. *smh* I buy the fabric and supplies and sew my sons costume myself. I also check out the thrift stores. I save a bunch of money.

Usually we buy them on clearance the year before or they reuse them. I don't think I ever have spent more than $15 each if that

I would try to find a used one.  I know on fb we have a local garage sale site and ppl have been posting tons of costumes.  Not sure if your area has a site like that available or not.

I'm hoping to spend $40 for two. My four yr old will not dress up so just a Halloween shirt for him.

$6 each at the second hand shop. :) A firefighter and police uniform. I wont spend anything over $20 and I even think that's ridiculous.

My DD costume was $10 at walmart and she is so in love with it, she wears it now whenever she gets a chance.
