I'm officially on vacation for 2 weeks!  No students, no church services, no choir rehearsals.
Instead, we're hopping on a plane Tuesday and heading to Key West to enjoy Fantasy Fest!
I am beyond excited.

I have been making costumes for a month in preperation for this trip.
6 costumes.
3 for me.
3 for C.
I'm not revealing full, but can't resist a sneak peak. 

 Costume no. 1 is an underwater scene filled with glittery seaweed and sparkly fish.
Costume No. 2 is a goldfish!

And costume No. 3 is a mermaid
No, no preview of the mermaid outfit yet!

I used the same pair of shoes and made decorative clips to match each outfit to accomodate the airline baggage costs and restrictions. 

Craig's costumes are "swamp thing" to match my "underwater scene" although he refused to let me glitter his, A light-up jellyfish (did I forget to mention that my underwater scene has twinkle lights in it?!) to match my goldfish costume, and King Poseidon to match my mermaid. 

I had a blast working out each costume, using my imagination and just playing.  My dining room table is now clean again (except for the glitter that I'll still be finding til after Christmas!) and its kinda sad to be done with the costumes.

I am sure this vacation will be an unforgettable one and I'll return recharged and ready to take on the holidays and all the extra things that entails with my jobs. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll try to be back soon!
