Let's make Halloween costumes!

Last year I got an early start on Halloween costumes ... I got obsessed with making Sesame Street costumes for a family reunion.  We bought sweatshirts from Target and Wal Mart, added colored feather boas from the costume shop and made the eyes out of styrofoam balls.

My husband bought his...

My favorite was Elmo, but they were all really cute.

 I also helped make costumes for my parents and my niece.  Once again sweatshirts were used.  We added felt dalmation spots.  My mom used a burger king robe for her Cruella cape.  She bought the wig and wore a black and white dress underneath!

Last of all... my kids and a friends kids.  We used sweatshirts from Walmart and added felt superhero logos.  The capes were made out of felt too.  They were cheap and cute!

What are your best Halloween costume ideas?
p.s.  This post is for Becca and Jen!
