“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.“
– The Sorting Hat
We started off Sunday as Ravenclaws. I made both of our ties and our skirts. My brother carved my wand.
“On the mike is the queen
so listen to me sing
he wanna number 5
super size onion ring.“
– Bon Qui Qui
That night, we changed costumes – Toria back into Totoro and me into Bon Qui Qui. I have to say, Bon Qui Qui might not be the prettiest costume I’ve ever donned, but it was, without doubt, the most fun. I only wish I had been able to wear it longer and yell at more people.
For Bon Qui Qui, all I made was the King Burger patch. I took the shirt in, cut the neckline and added the patch. And re-glued those fingernails a million times. It was so fun. A good number of people recognized me and I think I’ll do it again.
That’s it for 2011! I think tomorrow, I’ll have a flashback post for Dragon*Cons passed.
