Last night at safe Halloween I saw a TON of awesome costumes. I was beginning to wonder what happened to all the creativity of Halloween. With all these Halloween shops where you can just buy a bag with a costume already in it. I mean being Iron Man is cool, but what if you MADE the Iron Man costume?
When I was growing up, I was a costume bag kid myself. I couldnt wait to get to the store and buy a pre-made costume. Then one year, my older brother went as an alien. He bought the mask, but there was no costume included. So him and my dad, talked about it, and came up with this awesome costume. I was very jealous (I was Mike Tyson that year) and from that moment on, I was all about making costumes.
Yesterday at safe Halloween, a lot of people were surprised at my costume. asking questions like, "Where did you buy that?" I told them, I made it. The look of surprise is the best. They say, "what is it made out of?" I tell them cardboard.
Back on topic, last night, I saw a lot of creativtiy with these costumes. And to all of you I want to say, Great Job!
