Halloween Costume Making Seems to Be Our Jam

I started really enjoying Halloween when I made my oldest's costume when he was 8 months old.  It was just the creative outlet I desperately needed at the time.  As the years progressed, Halloween costume ideas became something we talked, planned and created well in advance.  The kids wanted unique costumes over the years and with my need to create something completely out of my wheelhouse, costume making became our jam.   

13 years later, I am still at it, with help from my 11-year-old and now for the first time, passing the baton to my oldest, as he is making his very own ghillie suit.  I thought this was the perfect time of year to share some of our years past Halloween, semi-home-makes once again, as we are all so excited for costumes & candy fun!
