I can’t believe it’s time to start thinking about Halloween costumes again already! I love Halloween – it’s my favorite holiday. My older daughter prefers to make her own costume every year. This generally ends up taking a lot of time to find what she needs, but it’s worth it for the enjoyment she gets out of it.
The last two years, my 5-year-old dressed as some sort of Disney princess. This year, she informed me she wanted to dress as Darth Vader. Later, she changed her mind and decided to keep with the princess theme and dress as Princess Leia instead of Darth Vader.
Either way, I’m guessing Star Wars costumes will sell extremely well this year, with all the marketing leading up to the new Star Wars film expected in a few months.

Here are 10 of the best Halloween costumes for kids I’ve seen.
When I was a kid, we pretty often had home-made costumes, often hand-me-down homemade costumes. Lots of kids did! Sometimes we cut holes in an old sheet to dress as a ghost.
