Yesterday was SO FUN. I have no idea if there were any complaints (most are too kind to pass those along) but I heard nothing but compliments from volunteers AND participants. Of course, it helped that I had a team of A-MA-ZING parents to help me. Several took charge of the kitchen since I was all, “AHH! I can’t cook pancakes!” They blew a few breakers but other than that? Wonderful. I over-shopped, of course. But I guess it’s better that than UNDER-shopping. The teenagers enjoyed it too as each one of them had a line of kids wanting their autographs. (By the way – the autograph pages? TOTALLY MY IDEA. I was quite proud.) E wasn’t in costume, as it was just the friendly principle characters. The insane asylum guy who tries to take Belle’s Dad is not really one you want the kiddies to hang with.
But if you want to see some of the amazing costumes, check it out here at the pictures Donnie took. I was working the front door so didn’t get to see a lot of it, but I was glad there were pictures for me to enjoy later. The show is going to be BRILLIANT. Can’t wait.
