Homemade Costume Attempts


I really love a homemade costume. I know, not everyone has the time or desire to stay up past midnight the night before halloween creating a costume that will likely never be worn again. I know it is often more costly then hitting up target for a ready made outfit. With that being said, homemade costumes, even whent hey are falling apart and less then perfect, are the best! This is a a simple costume I made for my daughter when she was two. Made from a hooded shirt, cotton balls, black tights, a black shirt, glue gun and a lot of time, this costume was easy and so cute! I had some concerns about fire safety though. Here in Ohio, many people have firepits out as they hand candy out to the trick-or-treaters. The solution? Fire retardant spray (found here). I found some at my local hardware store. After glue the cotton balls I sprayed them with the No Burn Spray. Still concerned, I made my husabnd try to light the thing on fire! The spray worked great, no fires were had.
