One of the complaints my mom used to have about costumes for boys when my brother was little is the fact that most of the ones he wanted to go as were made of cheap plastic and were way over priced. She started making costumes for us almost right away and came up with some great ideas. One year, my brother went as a ninja and she made all the parts of his costume. Making your child's costumes not only allows you to be extra creative, but it is often cheaper and you can usually use things you have at home to accessorize it. Here are 10 free costume patterns for boys to get you started!
