Her first Halloween

Tonight, my daughter will go trick or treating for the first time. I had hoped she’s want to go as a haibane but she had already fixated on being a ghost (“ooOOOooooOOoo!” she insisted). She’s pretty decisive like that, even last night on our feverish last-minute drive in search of ghost costume accessories, she wasn’t really swayed (for more than a few moments, anyway) by all the princess dresses or witches’ hats. We ended up finding some face paint at CVS and a classic orange pumpkin pail at Target. We’ll sacrifice an old queen-size pillowcase for the rest of her costume tonight. I’ll post pictures and video tomorrow…

kawaii poster contest

voting has begun in Riuva’s motivational poster competition. (warning: many entries NSFW!) I got one sympathy vote from Shamus. I guess my entry was too Haibane-insidery.

ah well. if you’re gonna vote for something, vote for Sugar! In fact, I think I’ll start a kawaii poster contest of my own. Anyone want to take a (SFW) shot? First prize will be me printing it out for the enjoyment of my four year old (who is about halfway done with Hooked on Phonics). Here’s an entry to get us started that sets a low bar indeed: Waffo

The rules are: kawaii, safe for work, and readable by a four year old 🙂 (and I guess it doesn’t need to be exclusively devoted to Sugar.. I guess. We can even accept that penguin chick too.)
