It's easy to be swept up into the excitement of the holiday, but Marissa from RaeGun reminds us to think long and hard about the purpose of the costume. She said:
Think about how long you need this to last. If it's just for the night or the weekend make sure the time and energy you invest is proportional. Lots of people try to do costumes all out with lining and lots of time consuming detailing. But most of these costumes are going to be on kiddos in bad lighting moving very fast so the detailing might not even be noticed. Don't kill yourself trying to reach perfection.
