I prefer to go all out otherwise you lose the fun in dressing up. The compromise to this is my daughter picks her character and as long as they’re from a book (not a movie that’s been turned into a book) we do it. This year she’ll be princess mononoke from the story written by Hayo Miyazaki who later turned it into film (after some adaptations). Probably our trickiest costume yet with a facemask attached to a furred Cape and brown sack shoes. Last year we ran out of time and decided to do splophie from the BFG, easiest costume ever.
