This month has been so very busy for us, that I missed another Big & Small. Oooops! I also missed out on posting about Lilah's day at the Faire, so here goes, better late than never!
Since the bride-to-be requested dolly attendance, I could not say no (and didn't want to anyway!) I thought about bringing Cassie, but she went last year. This year I wanted to bring Yula in pirate garb, but I never had time to make it. I realized that Lilah would look great in Cassie's attire, and is very old-school with her ankle length hair! Not to mention the fact that poor Lilah never goes anywhere!

Faire was all done up for Halloween, which was really neat to see. I have never gone this late in the season, so I never realized the cool spooky-factor that they add to all of the shops and settings.
While in the pirate ship I was inspired to take care of the current Blythe Physical Challenge (early!!! For a change...) This one was called, "stuff on my Blythe." Lilah found herself with some creepy skeleton hand on her! Eek!
It's funny how in some settings you can be so unbelievably concious of people and your doll. At Faire, almost no one bothered me or even gawked at me. One little girl looked at me and piped, "I like your doll." There were one or two performers that inquired about her (they were freaked by her eyes when I changed them, of course) I had no qualms carrying Lilah out in the open and taking her photo wherever I pleased. I think that is one of the great benefits of bringing a doll to a place like the Ren Faire.
Lilah had a great time. I will have to bring her out more often. She is very quiet though, so even though she wants to go, she doesn't make a fuss like the others. I will have to keep that in mind.
