Halloween is only three and a half weeks away, which means it’s time to start thinking about costume choices for you and your family. Whether you buy a costume or make one, choosing the right get up can be very difficult.

Here are some ways to decide which costumes will be perfect for you and your family:

1. Brainstorm Ideas

Search online, visit a Halloween related store or just use some good old creativity to develop a list of ideas. Think about the style, interests and personalities of you and your kids.

2. Assess the Logistics

Halloween here can be chilly so think about if you’ll be inside or outside. Also, it’s important to consider the people you’ll be with that night. A super scary mask or sexy costume may not be appropriate for kids.

3. To Buy or Make?

Decide how much you’re willing to spend and determine how much time you have. Many costumes can easily be created with items you already have or may be able to borrow.
