Do you make them or buy them. 


I usually buy them but am considering making them this year

i love the mario costume

Quoting key2ynot:

I usually make ours  and will maybe buy an accessory to go with it - like one year our son was a knight so we found his armor/sword at dollar tree.  We do sometimes buy as well, but I've made more than we have bought

  Last year I had a homemade mario and princess peach (my oldest insisted on a starwarscharacter  that we had bought)

the year before that was the best

I also did a dragon one year to go along with the knight

thanks!  My oldest was supposed to be luigi to go along with it all, but he's getting older and it's harder to bend his will  LOL

 I made our daughter's one year.  She was a pig.  All the others have been bought.

I buy them, primarily because I can find them cheaper than the fabric it would take to actually make them. But as DD gets older, I am finding her tastes are pretty specific and noncommercial, so I may end up making them for that reason.

I always make one for me, the kids prefer store bought.  The last few years 1 of them has let me make theirs, also.  I do quite a bit of sewing and have a mannequin to make clothing.  I can adjust it for sizes, makes a huge difference.
