Over the weekend, we were invited to Liang Court to attend a costume making workshop. This is part of their FaBOOlous Halloween mall event. Don't you think this arch leading into the workshop area is so nicely done up?
EV didn't get her nap, so she was really tired and moody when we arrived. She flatly refused to choose a costume to work on (she could choose between a chief, vampire and cookie). Then she refused to do the costume, and surprise surprise, this mummy had to do the handiwork for her. It was really quite simple, as most of the materials had already been prepared. All there was to be done was paint the axe.
While mummy was busy doing this, EV made friends with the Vampire Onigiri, and watched other children play games.
I really like the Halloween decorations here, especially this pumpkin with the pointed hat. EV liked it too, and checked it out while having a fish ball snack.
What really got her ticked that afternoon was the Japanese street gag performance by Kaja, who comes from Yokohama.
Her renewed energy didn't last long though, and she knocked out on the way back to grandma's place. I bet she was dreaming about the funny, entertaining guy who juggled and did magic tricks.
I was hoping that after she woke up, she would be in a better mood to try on the chief costume. She had other plans - imitate her grandfather and play pretend golf. Then I thought, perhaps I could get AA to wear it, so at least, I could get a photo of one of them in the costume. AA followed his sister's lead and refused to do so too. Sigh.. sometimes, I do wish they were not so united.
Well, there are still a few days till Halloween. I will keep trying. Let's see how that works out.
