Highlights from the Highlights Party


Okay I'm finally getting around to posting pics of the Highlights party a couple of weeks ago. To fill you in, Highlights Magazine hosts a party every fall for the illustrators that have contributed to their publications. We illustrators aren't let out of our studios very often so many of us jump at the chance to go to a party. And this one is always awesome. Part of the festivities is a costume party at the Highlights offices in Honesdale, PA. This year's theme was dress as your favorite holiday (day of the year) Incidentally, the cow was not invited to the party, she was at farm the children visited during the day.

My family and I went as Christmas. My son and daughter went was snowman. My daughter peeled her's off before I could snap a picture or before someone "cool" saw her. :)


My husband and I went as Christmas tress. He's such a good sport. It was kind of neat, I found some battery operated lights so our trees actually lit up...


And here I am with some like minded Christmas people...


But some folks opted from more unusual holidays. For example, Judith Moffatt, went as Mary Poppins Day (who knew?). But doesn't she make an awesome Mary Poppins? Practically perfect in every way...


And here's another very clever costume. Robert Squier and his wife Jessica went as "moving day."

These pics are great, Jenn! Thanks for the personal perspective! And I never heard of Moving Day until I moved to Montreal. It IS a big day as it seems half the island moves on July 1 of every year. I just didn't realize it was in other places, too (e.g. New Hampshire)!

I loved your light up Chsristmas tree costumes! Your tree look especially nice with the stockings and present flanking you. And you've captured Mary Poppin's attitude!
