What's a maker to do?

While my makings are scarce, I can safely qualify myself as a maker. Halloween is the maker's holiday, the one day of the year where you can make anything your heart desires, without anyone saying otherwise. And I get to miss out. I love making costumes, and I am jsut fascinated with the amount of cool yet easy costumes available on the internet each year. Well, my parents don't let me make aany of the ones I want. The answer- they require me to buy materials...... I am really sad. Last year, I saw the digitigrade(?) werewolf stilts. I was amazed at how easy it was! I made the stilts, and tried going for the full costume (They show how to make a werewolf costume step by step), but as soon as my parents learned I had to buy some fur, they put a stop to my making. That same year, I also found my ideal costume, a godzilla costume made from foam. You can guess the answer. Technically I could make it, from little scraps of foam from stores. My parents still said no, their justification was that after I make it, throwing it out was too hard (disposing of foam takes a lot of work). I have been nagging about that costume every month, but to no avail. This year, the guys that made the werewolf costume are at it again. This time, a cool dragon suit (Which I knew about since last year, I contacted them, and they gave me a cool piece of knowledge before anyone else!) I am not even gonna ask to make this one. Why must I love costumes? Any, just share any experiences where you've found ideal makes, but for some reason can't make them. Indy Mogul made a cool Hellboy Gun, which I was going to make an instructable of since they hadn't made one, but they (IM) said they were gonna make one too, they had jsut forgotten. By some sort of miracle, I'm still making the gun, and my parents haven't stopped me yet. I bought some plaster of paris, some 2x4s, a dowel, and other stuff. GuessI must be getting through to them? Finally, I leave you with this: Easy to make, but I have ***hole friends: (The second pic was the concept pic they showed me last year)
