Homemade Halloween costumes?

Anyone make Halloween costumes at home for their kiddos?  I was looking at the store the other day and was shocked (as usual!) at the cost of Halloween costumes.  For three kids, it adds up quickly!  What are some creative, fun, and inexpensive homemade Halloween costume ideas?

I started discussing Halloween costumes about 2 weeks ago. I agree - they are expensive - even on ebay!

1) Posting my kids' desires on facebook helped.  It turns out one friend has tons of Superhero costumes that our daughter can check out and borrow.  She responded as soon as she saw my posting.

2) Another friend told me to look at some pictures and she would sew the necessary pieces for my daughter.

So I am taking both paths this year in order to save some money on this very very important day!
