What really amazes me are the people who make their own costumes. I bought my costume for $1 USD at a yard sale and then just added things here and there I bought on Amazon. Allan's costume was made by one of the costume directors for Cirque du Soleil. However, friends like Trudy, Phillp and Johanna, among others, actually sew and stitch and do really creative things. For instance Johanna borrowed my Cleopatra headdress and then creatively sewed an incredible costume to go along with it that would rival anything in show business.
I've already got my costume for next year planned out - got it at the same yard sale, and am just going to add touches on Amazon. You'll have to wait till next year to find out!!
