Mr. R and I were debating this. I think Big R should re-wear her Cinderella Costumer from last year. We bought it with her birthday money. It was a really nice dress from Disney and around $40 on sale. She wore it for her school's trunk or treat last year and for trick or treating. Plus she wore it to Disney Land back in January.
Big R doesn't want to be Cinderella again this year even though the costume still fits. My thoughts: Too Bad. Wear it again or don't go trick or treating.
Mr. R doesn't think she should have to wear it again. He wants to check out some thrift stores to see what he can find for her.
I told her either way, she wasn't get another big princess dress this year.
When I was younger, we would throw together costumes with what we had on hand. Re-wearing some year after year. Mr. R said he always was something different. Even though I'm pretty sure his family didn't buy new costumes every year. He probably had to come up with them himself.
