Halloween costumes

Halloween costumes for inspiration

Inspirational halloween costumes are everywhere on the net. And they are usually much easier to make than you might think. Some of the best costumes I ever made were high impact with relatively little work and time. In the past I have been Edward Scissor Hands, Beavis and Butthead (amazing fun but a bit cold in shorts) Batman, the clown from Steven King’s IT and the last one I done for carnival here in Cologne, a man on an ostrich …also brilliant fun watching those ‘worst for wear’  trying to work out where my real legs were etc. But these were all easy halloween costume ideas.
