I’m back to catching up on event recap posts. When last we left off, I had yet to write about Sunday of Costume College. Since it’s the last day (except for tours that take place on Monday, which I did not participate in), it’s usually the most low key. Folks are tired after a long weekend of costuming fun.
Elizabeth came up with the idea to do My Little Pony costumes. It was a great suggestion, as they were easy to make and super comfortable to wear. I was Rainbow Dash (of course), Sara was Pinkie Pie, Vanessa was Princess Luna, Llyra Lee was Fluttershy, and Elizabeth was Twilight Sparkle. (Unfortunately Elizabeth had to leave before we could do pictures on Sunday.) We had a wonderful time, and I thought everyone’s costumes came out great! I’m considering doing a Princess Cadence costume next year, which will fit with the 2018 royalty theme.

I was this close to swiping Meg‘s adorable pineapple reticule for myself.
Later in the day I attended Christina‘s Phantom Bustle class. It was really cool how a whole bustle could be built out of just a little bit of wire and cotton tape.

At the end of the day, Lauren was able to visit with her daughter, which was awesome.
And then a group of Livejournal costumers went to PF Chang’s for dinner. Stephanie and I followed that with packing up our room, and later we went downstairs to chat with Vanessa and her husband Caleb.
The next morning I got a ride to LAX on the early side, which meant I had time to get a chair massage before boarding. That was awesome.
Once I unpacked I could take stock of my purchases (in addition to the fabric I posted about earlier). I got a fake fur collar, a pair of rainbow fingerless gloves, and a book from the bargain basement.
I can’t wait for next year! The theme is “Dressing the Royals,” which sounds like it will make for some really great costumes.
