Although we've been Houston area residents for over 8 years - and Nicholas grew up here - this was our *first* year to visit Dicken's on the Strand! The weather was perfect for the many layers of clothing involved with Victorian-inspired outfits. It was the perfect opportunity to wear this tiny hat I picked up at a comic convention earlier this year.
There were so many things to see with all the vendors and shops. Our favorites were the other costumed visitors,
and this alpaca! He was with a shop that sold alpaca knit items. Nicholas picked up an incredibly soft scarf.
