I got to attend a lot of interesting panels on writing, costuming, and a few crafty projects for the kids. But the best panel of the weekend was the Monster Mash. Where I took a perfectly good bunny, lopped it's legs off, and hand-sewed on the legs of a pastel fuzzy lochness monster type creature, added on the pointy tail and sparkley belly from said creature (Griffin noticed the sparkly belly first thing Easter morning). Then the trunk of an orange elephant, sewn on upside down. And the picture was before I finished the orange wings...made from the hair of a Power Puff Girl!
This "Bunny Monster" appeared the next day in Griffin's Easter Basket, along with 2 new crocheted playscapes (pictures coming soon!) and several books. Mimi, who led the Monster Mash, posted more pics of the crazy monsters created by my cohorts. She collects bags of old stuffed animals from thift stores & hosts Monster Making Parties at her house - I love this idea. You never know what you will get!
