    Buying a costume is just not kosher in my opinion! THe whole idea of halloween was to MAKE a costume since I was a kid. The best are clever, and don’t take elaborate supplies. Try these on:

    The eleventh option of course, is to not participate in Halloween, trick or treating. Many people are starting to not participate while more and more go whole hog. I believe it is one of the biggest cash cow holiday’s these days.

    By the way, we still have plenty of Halloween sewing pattern costumes at our store http://MoonwishesStore.ecrater.com if you would like to take a look.
