I think we planned to do the actual princess costumes somewhere around the time when we decided to do our Mario Kart biker princesses. When it came time to prepare for Aki-con this year we decided to just go for it
Around the same time I asked my daughter (almost 3 years old now!) what she wanted to be for Halloween, hoping she'd say "a princess" so I could get her into a princess Peach costume, but she said "fairy" and very specifically "green fairy" so that was end of that plan
Once she has her mind set there's no changing it, so green fairy it was... Since Aki-con was only few days away from Halloween she got to wear her costume all weekend long.
