Halloween Week plans

After talking with a friend yesterday and showing her some of my costumes, I have been told I should dress up in costume the whole week leading up to Halloween. So instead of dressing up the Thursday before to teach and on Halloween, I’ll be wearing six costumes in one week. It’s been an interesting…

Did I say stone?

This is what I get for making declarations. I just had a brilliant thought. While I love Arthur, I did go as him last year. And lately I have been thinking about having some Jaffa Cakes. So I’m switching out Arthur for Tim. Originally I was aiming for all literary costumes, since Marcon started as…

Executive Decision

I realized when I got home tonight that I had two choices: 1) Work like mad to hopefully get the coat done, hope it looks good, go with the wig and staff as is. 2) Not take Harry to Marcon and let Arthur get convention time. I’ve decided to go with option 2. I don’t…
