Oooh, you made that YOURSELF?
Costumes are part of the fun of Halloween! You can be anything or anyone you like for a night, and no one thinks it's out-of-the-ordinary (even if you go as the evil pancake monster from outer space). Making your own costume is a wonderful way to save money... unless you get uber-involved and anal retentive about detail like I do. It's also a fabulous way to make sure your costume is the most unique on the candy circuit- and *everyone* knows that cooler cotumes get better candy. But it can also be pretty dangerous, what with scissors, sewing machines, and hot glue; so, here are some tips to make sure you stay safe! Please feel free to save the list to your hard drive and print it out so that you have a handy checklist ready anytime- most of these tips can be used year-round!
