Spook-A-Look Halloween Photo Contest Entry

Ever since my sister and I were little, my mother has encouraged us to make our own costumes through her example-To this day, I can't remember ever wearing a store bought costume because it just takes away most of the fun of things in my opinion! A few costumes I remember making for myself when I was old enough were a Renaissance woman, a gypsy, and a goddess, all from articles I found around the house or bought at thrift stores. This year is probably my FAVORITE costume of all of them: A 50's Pin Up Girl. I hate to boast, but I put this costume together in less then 3 hours-In my opinion, it turned out pretty darn good!

This post is a contest entry for Giveaway Blogs and's Spook-A-Look Halloween Photo Contest-Make sure to head on over HERE and check out the other contest entries!

You look great, love the shorts! My mom used to make our costumes every year as well. I was a gypsy once too! I made my son's Halloween costume last year, but this year I have costumes that I bought at a yard sale back in the Spring for practically nothing. Thank goodness I don't have to worry about spending $20 per kid on a crappy costume!

Looks great. I don't remember ever making one. We always bought one.
