Kids Halloween Costumes?

    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!

I tried to find pictures but I can't get to them at the moment. I made my family Harry Potter characters last year, but not with typical costumes! Hubby was Voldemort, 2 kids were Harry and Hermione, the littlest one was Hedwig the owl, and I was Belatrix Lestrange. I found the kids capes and we took the lenses out of some reading glasses for Harry. I made them burgandy and striped ties and make grey vests out of fleece. I also made striped fleece scarves. I wittled sticks into wands and spray painted them. I made Hedwig out of white fleece and hot glued a white feather boa to the back and to a hat. I made eyes to go on top and a little beak out of felt. I like this idea because many of the items you can find at a thrift store like black pants and tights, I made a skirt out of grey fleece for my girl, and you can make any one of the characters. We won a contest with these. I like using fleece because you don't have to hem it!

One year my mom made my oldest son a Dalmatian. We just bought a white sweat suit ,cut circles out of black material and pinned them on the sweat suit. She stuffed a tail and we also pinned that on. For ears we put them on a headband. He was not even 5 years old when we did that. He is now almost 16 and does not dress anymore. If he does he goes as himself or a firefighter, which is also him.

Good luck. I need to figure out 2 coustums of my own for this year. For a 9 and 10 year old. scarecrow

My son was Yoda last year and will be Darth Vader this year. My dh idea, if it were up to me he would be something cute. I have to say he was an adorable Yoda.

My son was a Chick Magnet.  I made a magnet out of felt and made chicks out of pom pom's and I even found a shirt at wal-mart that said chick magnet.  I saw somewhere that hung barbies from the magnet and called it a babe magnet.  Sorry no pics of him in it my camera's battery died.
