Unique Halloween Costumes the Vintage Way for Him or Her

I was always one of those "mean mommies" that never allowed my kids to wear store bought costumes. Part of the fun each year was not only deciding on a costume, but creating it ourselves. There were many years of Princess, Indian Maiden, Hippies, gangster, Sonny & Cher, Cleopatra, Poppin Fresh dough boy, a twister game, little red riding hood, a few poodle skirts. Dating us~. there was also Boy George, and Punky Brewster.

Proudly, now in their 20s, the kids still do homeade, incorporating vintage. They usually win the best costume prize, and they have vintage items they can wear and enjoy again after halloween.

Here's just a few idea. Sorry.. this is one of my favorite times of year, so its a bit long~ and it could have been even longer.. i restrained myself!
