Homemade Halloween Roundup

This family doesn't mess around when it comes to Halloween costumes. It may have something to do with the fact that throughout our childhood and adolescence you could catch one or all of us in costume on any given day (dance recitals, plays, homemade music videos, or just because going to high school is much more fun dressed as a mermaid..Bethany). Whatever the reason, we take it pretty seriously and would never go out and buy any old costume. They must be made from scratch or scrounged up at the last minute from things around the house.

So,without further ado, I present some Smith Family Halloween costumes from the last few years... (I apologize for bad photo quality)
