Moms are busy and mine was no exception. When I was growing up, my mom always waited until the last little to get us outfits to wear for Halloween. Probably out of necessity, but that is when I discovered how much fun homemade Halloween costumes could be to make.
Leaving our costumes up to Mom usually meant picking out some cheap plastic costume from the local drugstore and going with that. Though this was okay, it was not ideal. One year, my younger brother then in second grade, had to dress up for a school Halloween party.

My mom had indeed no time to help him with an outfit, as she had a newborn. So, I took over making our Halloween costumes from scratch and, I might add, with impressive results! Honestly, I think that is what launched my desire to institute costumes for movies.
These days having a boy dress up as a girl is probably a pretty common idea for home made Halloween costumes. Still, it was not quite as common when we were kids - especially in our small Texas town. Actually, it is kind of funny when I look back.
I took some of my old clothes and other things I could find in my room to make my sweet little brother into a very convincing looking girl. About the only thing I had a problem with was his hair since I did not have a girl's wig for him to wear. I did have plenty of all things else for his get-up. One look at him and everybody cracked up with laughter.
