I've done the exact opposite of what my mother did for me:
1. I purchased.
2. A Disney.
4. Character (Belle) Costume for my daughter for Halloween.
5. From a major chain store.
6. At retail.
If only the costume were pink, it would be perfect -- a giant "F.U." to Grandma ER (although I did it to make SS happy, and to avoid any kind of fight, or extra labor, and not as any kind of secret message that bears on my therapy. No, definitely not that.).
