I personally like to make our own costumes for Halloween.
It's more fun and so cheap.
My kids are now a little older 8 and 11 and they don't want to be a cute lion or fairy anymore ( sadly)
They want to be gory and scary.
It started a few years ago and this is what Charlie then 6 wanted to do.
A cheap bottle of fake blood. Still have some left for this year.
Take an old white shirt and cut it up.
pour on the gooey blood
and then hold it up so the blood runs down to create a real mess.
With a bit of black eye makeup and white powder you have created a Zombie.
