Another birthday!

Yep, it was party time here in the old house. I swear I have the most fun coming up with a theme and running with it. This year's theme was easy. My girls have been able to go to San Diego, to Comic Con for the past 3 years. Not an easy thing to achieve, it seems the tickets are dispensed for purchase by lottery. Lots of tenseness here until they get their tickets. And get them they did! Sooooo, since my youngest girl's birthday is right around this time, I chose Comic Con 2017 to celebrate. 

I hung a banner made out of all the panel celebrities to give her a hint as she walks up to the front door. They never know what their theme is until this moment. Such fun!

Here's the table! Ta da! Lots of yellow and black, pics from past Comic Cons, goodie bags (survival bags for the trip), specialty beer, lots of sparkle and stars! And her favorite treat, White Bar donuts.

Always nuts and mints and a photo of Conan O'Brien, this year they scored tickets to his show on Thursday night. How exciting! 

And we had to include a pic of Elijah Wood. She has met him twice so far and was hoping for another viewing of one of her childhood favorites. (She did get to go to a party where he was DJing and he smiled at her....swoon!)

Hanging from the ceiling, were photos of past costumes that they have worn to the convention. Here she is as Medieval Snow White. 

My lovely birthday girl! Now how did she know to dress in yellow and

My all grown up girl still loves dolls! This one is special. It is a new line from Target and it is a Scientist doll. For my Research Specialist and Chemist at the University. It even came with a volcano set and robot! (I ordered this one special to have the dark hair and eyes and glasses, like my girl)

I think she is quite thrilled with it all. Success! We had a great time together and they left for Comic Con the day after. Road trip! 

Both my girls in their costumes this year. On the left is my oldest as Preacher and my youngest is dressed as Malory from Archer.

Here my youngest is Ursula from the Little Mermaid but with a Victorian twist! Isn't her costume fabulous. All hand made, even the hat and by her! 

Ursula and Rose Quartz from Steven Universe. My lovely ladies! And finally, the Con was over and they were sad and teary, so they headed to the beach, a sure fire way to get their smiles back.

A wonderful trip for my two girls. And I bet they are already thinking of what they will be next year. Always, Kit

OMGOSH !! THIS IS TOO MUCH FUN!! I have to say I love the skirt your daughter is wearing. I think I was about 40 when the Bratz dolls came out and my grands got me one dressed in leopard which was so totally ME at the time. My youngest grandson goes to the Comic Con in Chicago every year. I can't think of what his character is, but he is dressed like a Viking and wearing a chainmaille thing on his head. His character rides a bear. Our kids sure give us a lot to love and this party you gave your daughter created a great memory for your kids too.

xx, Carol

Kit - just when I think your posts can't get any better! You and your girls are crazy creative! Wow! The costumes are simply stunning and so effective! And I love how you invest so much in birthdays - you clearly know your kids and what excites them! And the donuts-as-birthday-cake - yum! OK - I think I overused the exclamation point!

What a cool party! And your girls' comic con costumes are amazing and beautiful. One of my fav things is your daughter's party skirt in yellow with the scenic boarder prints. It's wonderful and she looks darling! You guys sure have fun!
