Not a good way to start out. Today, I promised the Name the Kitten contest, but I haven’t had a chance to go back and find the descriptions of the kittens to go and find pictures to use so that you can name them.

The one I am keeping is Butterscotch, of course, and I DO have his picture:


Isn’t he beautiful? But the others, I still have to pin down…

So, instead, I will show you some of the lovely costumes I saw at Dickens on the Strand last weekend. Some of them were quite inspirational!

This one, for example, I simply MUST have made up for myself in green:


So charming and practical.

And this bicycling costume would be quite the thing for Fred’s inventions. Much more practical than trying to ride a flying machine in a fancy dress!


This family reminded me of some of the people I saw in Five Points when I was…um…visiting there recently. You’ll hear more about that later.


A proper mother and daughter, Lauren and Jamison–in an odd little store on the way to the Strand.


So many lovely people in lovely clothes. I can’t wait to go back again next year. (Though I might have to leave Rie at home…)
