Last year my kid was Mario, this year he's going to be Link from legend of Zelda (Video game crazy...)  And I'm totally making his costume.

Buying costumes where I live makes NO sense because its usually REALLy cold here and often there's snow on the ground, store bought costumes are useless.  Zelda costume will be made so that several layers of clothing can fit under it.

i remember many years ago, i went to my landlords hosue around holloween time and her son was miserablebecause shewas forcing him to be something that he didnt want to be. As I climbed up the stairs I saw a big thing of cardboard. I asked my landlord what that was and she replied, Oh his costume. She proceeds to pull it out slip it on him and Like the little kid in A Christmas story who couldnt move his arms, he turned around and he was a giant peice of toast.

hahahaha oh my!!! thats effing hilarious

I've been a lot of different things in my 18 years...and now, in no particular order... my mom helped with all of the costumes

-Bunny
-Dinosaur (my aunt made this for her son, then I got it)
-Nurse
-Angelica Pickles
-Belly dancer
-Charlie Eppes
-Bank robber
-John Lennon
-SpongeBob

...and that's all I can think of right now.  Not sure what I'm doing for the campus's art club Halloween party.

oooh...another one that my friend did with her daughter was a peacock.  She bought teal colored tights and a dance leotard, some peacock feathers from the craft store to make a tail..and sprayed her hair with color and sparkles.  It was really fun for her 3 year old.
