I made my son's costumes for his first 3 halloweens, he was Charlie Brown at 1 month old (yellow onesie, and I used a sharpie to draw on the zig zag, it was SO cute!), at 1y/o he was a scarecrow, and at 2y/o he was DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba (That was the hardest one to make!) Last year I bought his costume, and will probably this year too. But I did love making them, it's so cool to be able to say, "yeah, I did that!" Good luck!
