As this article illustrates, the best costumes tend to be the ones which are made not bought. That doesn’t mean we have anything against bought costumes. Just that we prefer things that are made.

Of course of those that are made, some of the best ones tend to be the ones you have to explain. That being said, a little creativity can go a long way.
