So we had a Fairy Princess, or a "Fawwy Pwincess Buttuhfly" as she called herself. I think she stole a few hearts, saying "twickohtweet" or "Thankyou" at the doors intermittently.
|Alas, this is the little grimace she trots out whenever you ask for a smile. She is, in fact, saying "CHEESE!"|
And a Stormtrooper. Although he went against protocol, and took his helmet/mask off for the duration of the adventure. So I guess we can all assume he lives to the end of the episode. Which he did. And then ate so much candy his mouth was blue.
This Alas, is the only group shot. Josh, as you can see, went as "Josh." He was probably the most convincing of all of us.
Grandma was Queen Elisabeth II, so here are the Royalty pictures...
Aunt Cathy came up with the concept for the Queen of Cheese, and made the costume.
She made several big smiles, all of which seemed to happen between the autofocus' "reload" time....
Just as we were returning, a car pulled up in the dark, and a woman held out a bag toward us saying "This is for you!" I hung back, with brief thoughts of horse heads and strange mafia and voodoo stuff fleeting though my head, before we realized it was our neighbor, giving a baby gift for Mariam.
It was an abundance of beautiful handmade burp cloths, a tribute which the Queen of Cheese readily accepts.
So I think there's going to be a lot of Princess-Leia themed clothes in my future :)
