We have been really busy this fall. Here is a video of Skyler singing at Sunny Hill while attending another Kid’s Free Weekend. Once again, her favorite her favorite DJ Pat was the Friday night entertainment.
So you have all seen her dress as Sailor Moon….twice(here and here). And you have seen her sing ‘Let It Go’…..twice(here and here). The next step seems pretty obvious. Skyler wanted to sing a ‘Let It Go’ song all about Sailor Moon in honor of the Sailor Moon goodness that is happening. So I sat down and wrote the lyrics for her and she practiced. I made any repairs to the costume that needed doing since being worn for NY ComicCon, a Girl Scout Halloween Party, the school Halloween party and Trick-or-Treating.
We used a black plastic tablecloth for the backdrop with a moon taped to it. We found the kitchen had good enough acoustics to record the song and then we were set. Well, after 10 takes due to wardrobe issues (accidentally ripped off her bow), lyric oops (started singing ‘Let It Go’ at parts), and prop distractions (almost took the camera out with the wand).
This song is dedicated to a wonderful nurse that moved away. Nurse Kate, you were amazing and I don’t think that any nurse will ever live up to the bar you set in the kids’ eyes. Where else are we going to find someone who loves the same things as all 3 of us? From Doctor Who to Firefly, Meowchis to Sailor Moon, and, most importantly, Cosplay Tips, you made every visit with you memorable. We miss you terribly and hope you are having a wonderful time in your new state and job.
I am still writing the next part of the ComicCon posts but today we took a break to go the county Youthfest. While there Skyler had a chance to perform “Let It Go” as part of their event karaoke presentation rather than a talent show like last time. While she was singing, people started popping up from all over the event to see who was singing. After she finished, a man approached us and identified himself as one of the main organizers. He asked her if she would like to sing the National Anthem at next year’s event. She has been floating on a cloud ever since.
On related a note, I read an interesting article at The Mary Sue about how Frozen has become one of the top 10 grossing movies of all time by earning $1.072 Billion dollars. Becky Chambers asked in her article “Will we ever stop hearing covers of “Let It Go”?” Well, Becky, as long as 8 year old love to sing it everywhere they go. Not anytime soon. Hehe, it really was a good thing for us.
Skyler was in her school talent show on Friday night. She sang “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen, not the Demi Lovato version but the Idina Menzel version. We were able to find a suitable costume on Etsy, the shoes came from Sears, the crown was from Five Below, the glove was from the Dollar Tree, and the necklace was from A.C. Moore.
Here is her full costume:
