Sometimes I feel so old fashioned! Last year I entered our then 7 month old in a costume contest...there were about 20 kids in her age group (0-3) and about 50 other older kids that had entered...and we were one of 3...THREE...people who MADE the costume!!!! Everything else was storebought!
This year, my sister is the only person I know who is making a costume besides myself. Does ANYONE do this anymore? Does anyone enjoy it as much as I do? I think it's much more creative for your child to help come up with a costume idea and help make it and be more satisfied and have a bigger sense of accomplishment than just dishing over money to purchase a costume 50 other kids will be wearing.
Don't get me wrong, I see nothing wrong with buying Halloween costumes...but whatever happened to making them?
