Sent in by Lori to our 2013 costume contest.

There may be a black cloud hanging and a twister forecasted for your Halloween night, but no need to take cover as there looks to be a ray of sunshine in that smile (Twister Tornado costume).

Sent in by Carrie to our 2012 costume contest.

Kermit will be falling head over heels when he sees his adorable Miss Piggy. Full of glitz and glam for her Halloween debut, she is really pulling out all the stops. After all, she isn't your ordinary farm animal. And we wouldn't expect anything less!

Cute Scarecrow CostumeScarecrow
Sent in by Megan to our 2013 costume contest.

"If I only had a brain!" No worries here as it looks like this cute scarecrow is all brains as he prepares to follow Dorothy down the yellow brick road in this smart looking costume. That evil witch will have nothing on him.

Starbucks Frappuccino CostumeStarbucks Frappuccino
Sent in by Tara to our 2012 costume contest.

Who can resist a sweet Frappuccino on a cool fall night? Complete with whipped topping and a straw, this little cutie has hit the jackpot with branding a delicious drink. Maybe if we say please, we can get ourselves an extra shot of espresso!

Tow Mater CostumeTow Mater
Sent in by Shana to our 2012 costume contest.

He is looking happier than a "tornado in a trailer park" as he prepares to tow any broken down fellow tricksters. Be listening for the hustle and bustle of motors racing down the street, as Mater goes out to save the day. If you're watching, you may just see Lightening McQueen by his side.

As you can see, there is no reason to spend countless hours and a lot of money shopping for that perfect costume this year, when you can come up with your own. Be original and creative as you dress your little pumpkin in a one of a kind costume. Sky's the limit as you think of many clever ideas. Maybe they have a favorite movie, a toy, or maybe you will be dressing your little ones up as their favorite character in a book. Coming up with designs together will be a fun way to include your toddler in the decision making.

Whatever you decide to make, you can keep the typical store bought costumes at bay and you will be turning heads as their homemade costume stands out among the crowd. Be sure to take lots of pictures of your cute and funny dressed-up toddlers now. Before long they will be older and wanting all of the blood and gore that the terror of Halloween night brings. Happy Trick or Treating!
