Instead of just buying a cheap crappy costume that ends up being a glorified garbage bag with printing on it...make a high quality costume using thrifting, sewing, Cricut, painting, creativity and imagination! I'm sharing 50 (maybe 51--I can't count) awesome cosplay or Halloween costumes that I made! I love dressing up and costuming. I usually dress up every week for church during September and October...but our church time switched to 9 a.m...and that's too early for getting up and being creative--plus getting there on time, so I'm a bit of a bah humbug this year.
