I get stressed out over it every year, but I love making my kids' costumes and seeing their excitement as they come to form. I don't remember ever having a store-bought costume growing up. Even if it was stuff from my own closet with a few added accessories, the creativity was the fun part. So let the creativity begin!
Leo's choice this year is Green Lantern. I think the final decision making point came when he asked if he would get his own light-up ring and I said yes.
He finally decided on Wolverine and is sticking to it.
So soon, I will be hitting thrift stores and craft stores to find just the right things to dye, cut, sew, glue, paint and ultimately bring smiles to my favorite little faces.
Wish me luck.
