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 black....lol
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
