This year my son wanted to be a Ghostbuster for Halloween, when we finally found a store bought costume that would fit him, I was not impressed. It cost $30-$40 and was very "cheap" and not much to it. I decided I could do better on my own.
My husband and I enjoy Halloween and try to get in the spirit of things with our son, so I ended up making my husband be the Stay Puft marshmallow man, while I just had a glow in the dark Slimer shirt I painted. My son's costume was complete with back pack, goggles, laser to fight the ghosts and a ghost catcher box that he used to collect his candy in. It was a lot of fun and my husband got a lot of attention!!
