It’s never too early to start thinking about your Halloween costume! It’s easy to go to the local costume store or party store and buy a “pre-packaged” costume, but it’s definitely not the best option. If you’re going to a big Halloween party you’re likely to see someone else with the exact same costume and it just won’t be very original.
The other problem with a party store costume is that they are generally pretty limited in sizes and you have to buy everything together – which doesn’t end up well if your top is bigger than your bottom or vice versa.
Putting together your own costume pretty much ensures that your costume will be unique AND it will fit you well. You can also easily tweak parts of the costume to be exactly what you want.
