Colorado will have to wait a while. We’re heading back to my hometown in the San Francisco Bay Area, at least temporarily. This puts us back in with the sort of people I’m most comfortable with, such as costumers, cosplayers, and historical re-enactors. My daughter and I are especially looking forward to attending the California Steampunk Convention Halloween weekend (if it doesn’t sell out first). Think I can get away with wearing a kimono to such an event? I just might try.
