I just found out that both of the Spirit Halloween Stores in Bossier and Shreveport are now open. Are you one of those folks who can't fathom going to a store and paying $60 for something you will never use again? If so, we want to hear from you.

If you are the creative one in your group chances are, a few people have already called you asking for a costume idea. Have you ever pulled off a genius or hilarious Halloween costume that cost you little to nothing? We want to try out your homemade Halloween costumes.

Tell us about your homemade genius costumes and we will do our best to imitate it. Please include a picture in the comments below!
