You're One of a Kind. Your DIY Halloween Costume Should Be Too!
Once upon a time (not so long ago), if you wanted a costume – you, or your Mom, or your Dad – HAD to make it. You had to dream it up. Cut it. Stitch it. Glue it. Create it. And when you or your child wore the costume, your pride would glow through the seams.
Times have changed. A plethora of assembly-line costumes are just a click away. And yet, the passion for costume-making is stronger than ever. Today, we don’t HAVE to make a costume. We WANT to make a costume. We want to be different. We want to be special. We want to be one of a kind. And that’s exactly what we all are. One of a kind!
Right now we're going to set out to find a one-of-a-kind costume idea for you. Just clear your mind and let your fingers lead the way. In no time you’ll be skipping from one homemade costume idea to the next. Making notes. Dreaming up your own adaptations. Good Luck!
