My kids made their own costumes this year with very little parent help.  This one is Waldo!  He found the shirt at a thrift store and knit the hat himself!

This is my 9 and 6 year olds, who made these costumes all by themselves!  They are a box of fries and a ketchup dipping cup!

We've been doing themed, family costumes since DD's first Halloween. This year, since she was going as a t-rex, we decided to do an all out Jurassic Park group costume. DH is Dr. Grant. He even has a light up "flare" - just like in the famous scene when he uses it to lure the t-rex away from the kids. I'm one of the park SUVs, complete with working headlights and the trembling glass of water. My costume even plays the theme song from the movie. :)

My son Gabe's original costume. He came up with the idea. I created it from scratch. Had the logo cut in vinyl. Can you tell he's excited?

My six-year-old wanted to be R2D2, despite some kids at school teasing her because Star Wars is a "boy" thing. We've taught her all along it doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, you can be whomever you want to be, and be interested in anything you like.

 

Since there were no R2D2 costumes to be found, I made her one, out of posterboard and recyclables. :)

My 2 year old was Cousin Itt.  Everybody said she was perfect because of her squeaky voice and squeaky shoes.  The fact that her favorite thing to do is suck her thumb and play with her hair this costume was right up her alley.
