Costumes my family and I (and a few others) have worn to conventions and festivals and whatever other delightful excuse comes our way. I do so love delightful excuses!
Me dressed for a Halloween dance, age 16/17? Photo by my mom.
My son Andy, Age 4? in his favorite costume: the Mutant Ninja Turtle, worn just about any time. He LOVED this costume! Photo by me.
A Halloween with my kids, Amelia and Andrew, once upon a long time ago. We were trick-or-treating in downtown Bothell and you’d be amazed how many people thought that wig on his face was a real beard! LOL. And Andy didn’t tell them any different either. They’d ask if it was and he’d say, “Yes!” I don’t know who took this photo. It was a professional one.
Amy dressed up as Shampoo, a character from the Anime, Ranma 1/2, for the very first Sakura Con we went to… 2003 or thereabouts? Photo by me.
Me in our room at Manressa Castle, Port Townsend, dressed for the Victorian Festival 2006… Photo by Jeb
Me at another Renaissance Faire, posing with a troubadour who didn’t know he’d be posing with me . Poor guy. I was trying to make Jeb a little bit jealous in retaliation for not dressing up, not holding my hand, and being generally grumpy around me all day… Photo by Jeb
