I think Homemade Halloween costumes are cuter. DH says they scream "my parents are too poor to buy me a costume!" Which do you prefer?

I'm crazy busy with school work so I'd rather go spend $20 at Target and be done than spend hours making something for the kids to wear once. If I had the time and the craft skills I might try something homemade.

My youngest wants to be a bubble guppy. No way I could make a costume for that though. :(

It depends on the effort put into the costume. They can either look "poor" or authentic when made at home.

I like taking my daughter to the store and letting her pick.

I personally prefer store bought, only because I can not sew for shit! But Homemade ones are always cute when made correctly.

My mom made my costume every year. The neighbors always said they looked forward to seeing what I was wearing that year. Btw, we were middle class, she just made awesome stuff.

My kids wear store bought as I don't have a creative bone in my body...nor can I even sew a button. So, yeah, I like both!
