With many of the stores starting to decorate and sell for Halloween, I thought I would share my list of resources that I have used over the years for costumes and items. When my children were young, I would make their costumes by hand, but as they got older and I started working outside the home, costumes have been store bought but always enhanced with added embellishments. So whether you prefer to purchase a costume or to make something yourself, I thought that I would share with you some of the companies that I have been very fond of and have used over the years for both children and adult costumes. These are some of my favorites.
