Our philosophy when it comes to homemade Halloween costumes is why bother. If you are creating a one-of-a-kind character that is one thing, but if you are trying to make a homemade version of a popular costume, you are going to fall short. Unless you are a professional costume designer, or handy with needle and thread with dozens of hours to spare, it is just not worth trying to make a costume from scratch.
The following slide show will show you examples of homemade Halloween costume fails followed by an inexpensive store bought version that will save you hours of aggravation and look great. It also helps that everyone will know who you are.
