When my son was little and I lots of time on my hands (read: no other kids) I made his Halloween costume each year.

He went as Robin Hood and Harry Potter and I loved putting a personal touch on his costume (you can see the pictures below)!

Others are easy enough that you may find the pieces online or at a costume store.

Background story to this costume:
My youngest brother fell down a mountain opening day of the deer hunt & had to be flown out of the mountain because he broke his femur & they thought he had fractured his skull.

He was in a wheelchair and really upset that he didn’t have a costume so we just threw together hunting clothes, my sister put on scrubs & my brother put on the gown & since my babe was a lion we made him look like he was attacked by a lion on a hunting trip.

(So sweet!)
