    My 2 kids, Trey(5) and Eris (3), wanted to be Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas this year. Since they do not make costumes for children, I decided to make them myself.
    For Jack, I found a woman’s pin stripe blazer for $1 at a thrift store. I cut the front half off and cut a line in the middle of the back to make the coat tails. I made a bat-tie out of felt and made skeleton hands by drawing black lines across the fingers of white gloves. We ordered an adult sized Jack Skellington mask online. To complete the outfit, wear with black pants and shoes. The candy bag was a pillowcase that I crafted to look like Jack’s ghost dog, Zero. The entire outift cost less than $25.
    For Sally the Ragdoll, I took 3 size 6T t-shirts and cut them to pieces, then sewed them together to make a pathwork dress. I sewed white sleeves to the dress (to make it warmer) and, with a black marker, made Sally’s ‘stitches’ all over the ‘arms’. Black tights and a red wig complete the outfit. Be sure to draw ‘stitches’ and her face and wear red liptick. The Sally costume cost less than $10. :)

    My son is a money tree. We did it last year and he’s so excited, we’re doing it again! He wears all brown (including a hat) and I hot glued fall colored fake leaves, twigs and pretend money all over the shirt and hat (the pants are the trunk). He then walks around with a pocket full of fake money and gives it out in exchange for his candy. It was all his idea. He’s 4 1/2…

    My boys (age 2 & age 4) are going to be Mario & Luigi. Both will be wearing denim overalls with a green/red shirt. We are taking baseball hats and spray painting them. We bought little junior plungers at Lowes (super cute). I cut out pieces of felt to glue on the hats. White circle and black ‘L’ ‘M’. We are trying to decide if they’ll wear fake mustaches or we’ll draw a mustache with makeup.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
