Because of the girl scout swim party, we didn’t get to leave on Friday until pretty late in the day. It was pretty awesome though to wander around and see all the cool costumes. We saw everything from angels to Disney princesses and a man in a striped Victorian-style swimsuit. That first night we went to a panel that taught us all about how to communicate and flirt using just our fan or hat or gloves. We also sat in on a question-and-answer panel with a local ghost-hunter. I think our favorite panel, though involved us being read Steampunk Children books and doing yoga. (I wasn’t brave enough, but the girls got an impressive amount of bending in around those corsets!)
We ate lunch in the car, but then ran over to the nearby Target so that I could get some cash back. We got a lot of funny looks, but it was pretty exciting. Dinner was the same thing: lots of questioning looks, but we simply basked in it.

at the ball and Crafty was heartbroken
Well, we did need to make sure we made it to Menchie’s before they closed!
