Still no costume? Pay your kid to wear last year's!
Brook is one practical woman.
When my daughter was in Kindergarten I made her an elaborate, time-intensive, and expensive Sailor Moon costume. Facing the prospect of sewing or shelling out for another costume, I offered to pay her $10 if she wore the same costume the next year. In second grade she chose to be a cowgirl, and in 3rd grade, she made another $10.
I got off lucky this year. My daughter wanted to wear the same costume she wore last year. Fortunately it's a too-big dress from Goodwill I "altered" with safety pins, so she won't outgrow it for at least 10 years.
