Wynn's Rainbow Dash costume

We really had to trim and style that wig ... but she'll be able to use it even when she's a grown-up if she wants!

Helps that her school uniform is light blue too - it's a cold night so she's got two shirts, pants and tights, thick socks and gloves.  The wig will keep her pretty warm, too!

Ann walked her around the neighborhood this year - appropriately dressed, don't you think?

Great haul this year!

Wynn's Hogwarts costume

With a Gryffindor scarf, to boot!

Making Wynn's Halloween costume

She'll have two costumes this year: for the Yinghua Character Parade, her uncle got her Hogwarts robes (photos of that later) so she can be Hermione.  For trick-or-treating, she wants to be Rainbow Dash.

I researched on the Net and YouTube to learn how to make pegasus wings and pony ears ... the wig and tail I found on eBay and are coming from China...  I got a hot-glue gun and foam craft sheets - here we go:

Wire coat hanger inside the wings for rigidity (completely glued in between the foam sheets.) I used two stretchy headbands for her arms to go through.
I think she likes them!

Fall leaves at the Fairgrounds

This year may well be the prettiest autumn in my memory. The weather has remained pleasant long into the season and we haven't had one of those mid-October storms that blows all the nice leaves off the trees.  We went again to the Fair where flowers are still blooming!

More goofing around at the Fairgrounds

After dinner we took another walk over to the Fairgrounds.  Who dares knock on the doors of the Haunted House?  Plus, we saw that giant steer again!

Our little explorer

Wynn had a half-day today so I picked her up at school after lunch.  It was super nice out, so after a quick run through the airport we ended up at Minnehaha Falls - her very first time there. We got about halfway out to the river but time was running out because we needed to be home to make dinner for Ann!

Where ARE we going to travel on our next adventure, I wonder?

The Fair has once again left us...

But we get to wander around the grounds...
