Events like Costume College are so exciting - you get to be among weirdos just like you, geeking out and making friends and seeing old friends who live too far away.

But it's always over too soon, and we have to go back to "reality". Here's how to deal with that inevitable crash after the convention.

Do you have any tips to add? Leave a comment below and we'll help each other through!

I take advantage of the high I'm still on and do as much planning, buying and starting the sewing before it wears off. Usually by 2 months I'm slowing down so I want to get an early start, even if it's just cutting and doing some sideseams.

Good idea Val! And as next year gets closer, you'll have quite enough on your plate as Dean!

I've just started reading a book about the history of circus The Greatest shows on Earth by Linda Simon and there's a quote from Henry Miller, describing the circus but it reminded me of this blog " The Circus is a tiny closed off area of forgetfulness, for a space it enables us to lose ourselves, to dissolve in bliss and wonder, to be transported by mystery. We come out of it in a daze, saddened and horrified by the everyday face of the world. But the old everyday world, the world with which we imagine ourselves to be only too familiar, is the only world and it is a world of magic, of magic inexhaustible". I thought it was lovely.

That's a lovely thought, Elly, thank you for sharing!
