I’m a Halloween junkie, and there is nothing more quintessentially Halloween than a home-made costume! You still have a whole week before your little one heads out trick or treating, so why not get going with a little felt and a lot of imagination! Here is a round-up of the best children’s costumes that crafty mommas have hand-sewn, hot-glued and bedazzled for their little trick or treaters!
Yes, I have started off my collection of “the best homemade Halloween costumes” with one that I made myself! Go ahead call me a shameless promoter, but the truth is that I made this costume last Halloween for Kysen and he would not even put it over his head–so I got what I deserved in the end! Needless to say I was DEVASTATED! I had to bribe Kysen’s cousin, Makaio, to throw it on so I could at least get a picture of it on somebody cute! I will post the tutorial soon (I’m not going to promise when, I do have a 3-month-old to contend with)!

**SNAKE COSTUME UPDATE: This snake costume has been incredibly popular! I have been trying to find more information about the costume and this is the best I could turn up: the costume was a contest winner at NancyRainesDay and the little boy’s name is Rush DeGuzman. There are no links out to instructions or more information. I will try to contact Nancy to see if she can lead us to something more substantial.
