What's in the suitcase?

What, this suitcase? This is the suitcase of mystery, for my school visits this week. Volunteers will be called, knowing not what they volunteer for. And then, the suitcase of mystery will be opened to reveal. . .

WIGS!

Five different pink wigs! I can't wait to see the kids wearing these. Heh heh hee! Today I've been readying my slide show and props. Besides the wigs, there are butterflies:
(These sweeties died of old age in a butterfly zoo.)

And of course, there's famous BOX OF CLAWS:

Aren't those just SO COOL? One lucky student will be appointed the Guardian of the Claws, and will be responsible for bringing the box around to show everyone. (The claws will be sewn to the lining by then.) That student will also have to wear a pink wig. I got a single pair of faerie wings too, for the student in charge of the butterflies -- I think I'll pick a girl for that.

So looking forward to these events. Fingers crossed that all technical stuff goes well!

Well now, how can any other authors compete with THAT?! :-)

You should get a YouTube video of one of your visits so we can all watch. Who knows, it might be good for promotions, too.

Wow! The coolest claws ever. I have a giant fang I bring around from The Beast of Noor but where or where did you get these. Lani?? Do tell. Or is it a faery secret?
