That is very neat.  Instead of the link though, use this one to her flickr stream.

As someone who's sorta started to dip into the realm of latex prosthetic and such, I can tell you that any given costume she has represents somewhere between $20-$150 and up.  Most of this stuff - especially the prosthetics and character-specific clothing and accessories - average about $40-$50 for the face-only masks alone and larger ones naturally go for more.  I recognize quite a few of them actually, and including the painting and the few with attached hair and the costumes we're talking about a serious investment of time and energy.  This wasn't a spur of the moment thing, but rather, someone who geared up for this for several months, maybe even since last halloween.  Especially getting the clothing right - making a single outfit yourself is a tedious multiday process in most cases, and buying it online is often prohibitively expensive.

I wonder if she did her own makeup though.  For a full head, it takes me about 2-3 hours to do decent work with non-human-skin color (which is so much easier to deal with, rather than careful shading and such).  These look like she had a lot of help.  Not that it isn't cool, but, I'd like to know the actual cost, and know who did the makeup work.
