Review

"...the costumes are so easy to make ... means that participation in the holiday will be easier than ever." -- The Halloween Association

"The most complete, creative collection of costume ideas that I have seen so far." -- Larry McKenzie, Publisher of HalloweenMagazine.com

...great ideas that are simple and unique. Anyone who has to conjure up the perfect costume should have this book! -- Lisa Laskey, Northwest Family Magazine

Suzanne has captured the sense of fantasy that makes Halloween a wonderfully playful time of year. -- Rochelle Santopoalo, President of the Global Halloween Alliance and Publisher/Editor of Happy Halloween Magazine

From the Publisher

You will be so satisfied with this colorful resource, to be utilized over and over for many Halloweens to come! It is a "must have" book! You can create costumes for yourself and your family from now to the year 2100 and still not use all of the ideas! It is a well done, very clever book! The illustrations and photos alone are entertaining!

This title had just been published a view days when I purchased it. If you are like me and love Halloween but panic at the thought of what to be? what to wear? This is for you! Singleton has written a book with A to Z costume ideas that are fun and refreshing and all NO SEW!
What you also receive with this book purchase are pages filled with fun to view black and white visuals of the costume ideas. The pages are bordered with corn candy and various halloween graphics which only adds to the fun and festive halloween spirit.
Year after year, my husband and I along with our children are invited to dress up Halloween costume parties.These parties are usually fun and yet I am always feeling pressure for myself and my family. What to do? Many Halloween costumes are so expensive for a one night event,(the nicer well made ones), and how much fun is it to buy the old cheap mass produced plastic ones? Like many women of today, I do not sew which only adds to my frustration. Well now here is the perfect remedy, this title is not only packed with fun and easy costume ideas but each page is sure to bring a smile with each costume visual!
It is cute, fun, festive and fills a need! Never again will you lose sight of the Halloween fun that costume panic brings!

Ms. Singleton by far missed the mark in creating this book. The hide and seek angels she has scattered throughout does little to convince me that this woman is little more than a bigot. I had to flip to the copyright, thinking that surely this was a book written decades ago. I was shocked to see that she had authored it in 2000! "Cigarette Girl"; "Mammy" (the only depiction of a black person); "Sheik" (holding a bottle of oil, no less!); all the way to the "Zulu Tribe" at the end. And that is just a sampling of what is so, so wrong with this book.

Ms. Singleton, if you read this, please pull this book from publication. Then please educate yourself to what true compassion in a society is. Printing angels while simultaneously perpetrating stereotypes makes you come across as nothing less than a hypocrite.

I am grateful for two things: one, that I read this book before handing it to my children, and two, that the dollar I paid for this book did not go to the author or publisher as it was a book donated for our local library's store.

Suzanne Singleton has certainly outdone herself on this release. Clever Costume Creating for Halloween is jam-packed with unique ideas for easy to make, NO SEW costumes. The illustrations help you visualize the overall effect and the instructions are packed with appropriate props and accessories.
Although I am an artist and consider myself to be pretty creative, when it comes to Halloween costumes I go blank. The creative part of me wants to do something original, unique. I definitely could never bring myself to buy those mass produced, plastic-masked versions available in the stores. When I flipped through Suzanne Singleton's book, my mind began to race with all the possiblities. I found myself thinking, "Why didn't I think of that? This is sooooooo clever!" Now my only problem is choosing which idea to try first!

I found this book to be very enlightning for ideas on creating Halloween costumes. It is full of so many good tips, many requiring a minimal amount of effort in putting together a costume. I would recommend this book to many, both young and old and particularly to parents who every year need to come up with a new and unique costume for their children to dress for Halloween.
