when i was about 7 or 8, my dad made me a costume. i was frankenstein's bride. my hair was made of posterboard wrapped in foam batting spray painted. then i just wore this white gown thing that my mom made. the teachers at school were not happy about my distracting hair-do

oh and one year my dad made me into a giant trick or treat bag. i was literally the brown paper bag and you had to put candy inside my costume. confused many people

I'm trying to remember when I was that age...I have always been very tall for my age, I am 5'9" or 5'10" and I stopped growing when I was 13...

I remember I was a pink fairy one year even though I hated pink. Oh! One year I was a frog and I just wore all green and had a green baseball cap with white styrofoam ball eyes glued to the bill.

When my younger brothers were little guys they were dinosaurs(purple sweatpants and a sweatshirt that had spikes), pumpkins, a bazooka joe bubble gum box, an M&M, train conductors, ghosts. It was fun with them cause they're twins. Heheh. Greg would pull his arms into his gum box costume and hide in it.

I agree that the store costumes are too commerical pushing the sexy factor a little too soon. I have seen crop tops, short shorts etc on the smallest of girls. My boss had to struggle with her 7 year old daughter last year with wanting a too sexy devil costume. 

I like the idea of doing something with history with your daughter. Make it a learning experience for her. The roman toga idea is great - it is comfy and cheap and she can learn about ancient Rome. If not Rome, Egypt, the roaring twenties, the 70's etc, a beautiful Geisha, etc?

What way she can about other times/cultures as you help to create her costume. See what she is learning in school and she what sparks her interest.

Ninja sounds great for a little girl!  I'd love to see it!

My game geek brother convinced me to be a druid for Halloween when I was 8.  It was so fun to be something completely different!

I also abhor store bought costumes.  Especially the ones that are just a plastic sheet with a picture of something printed on it...I always feel sorry for the kids who get stuck with that.

Has anyone else noticed that a lot of trick-or-treaters don't even bother wearing costumes any more?  This really bothers me...I mean couldn't they try just a little!?!

YES! I wont give more than 1 piece of candy if the kid is older and is not in costume. i hate that. Hate it lol. Hmmm.... I'm trying to think of the one costume i did when i was a kid that i had to explain the most. I think it was probably when i was 13 or so and I dressed up MOD. No one i went to school with had any idea what the hell i was lol.
