    I was just wondering if anybody here is or has made any kids halloween costumes? I need some ideas to run past my kids, my 4 year old daughter wants to be a duck, I think I can pull that one off. Then I have my son who is 8, and doesn't know yet. Photos and all ideas welcome!

One year my oldest son was an umpa-lumpa (from Willie Wonka) and that was a task since I had to make the entire costume from scratch and my youngest son was a train that we made out of a box.  They were both cool.

My son has been Dumbo (hard to make don't recommend), Spiderman, Batman, and a Soldier. The soldier costume was by far the easiest to make. I used a McCall's pattern and an old army uniform a friend gave us for material. This year he is going to be a cowboy (really should start that soon). Good luck!

for my son's first halloween he was a scarecrow (so cute.) the next year he was a construction worker (i had no idea who bob the builder was at the time..he was only 2 and didnt watch tv) a cowboy for 2 years, spiderman, a ninja and a Knight.  yep that makes 7.  not sure what he'll be this year, but all but the spiderman and ninja costumes were homemade

I do not know how much help this will be but for my youngest daughter's first Halloween I had a doozy of a time trying to find a costume that I thought would be cute enough and stlll fit her because of the fact that she was 8 months old but the size of a newborn. I ended up coming up with the idea of making her into a bag of Sugar Babies since she loves to give "Sugars" (kisses). Here is what turned out.

I plan to make all 3 of my kids's costumes this year. My son is going to be a LEGO, oldest daughter wants to be prom queen & my yougest daughter hasn't decided yet. The Lego is really cute! If you want instructions just let me know!

Hey all!  New to group, saw this post and had to share...

Last year my son was 3 1/2 and he was a jedi, I found a brown bathrobe at goodwill and altered it to fit him, he had a toy lightsaber and I even made a "tail" which he clipped to his hair and spiked the top.

My daughter was 2 and really didn't know what she wanted to be, so I made her an Ewok costume.  I found a cheap teddy bear costume at Wal-Mart, made a "leather" head covering for it out of faux swede material and some leather teather/thread stuff to accent it, it even had ear holes.  She also had a necklace made out of beads that were shaped like bones. 

They both turned out really cute, I was super excited and so were they!
