This time of year marks the beginning of school, a return to colder weather, and multi-colored leaves -- the last of which are now part of our Children's Room window décor.
Last weekend however, we celebrated what I like to call "The Monday of the year" (because Mondays and Septembers mean back to school) with our very first pop-culture convention.
While Sy-Con was aimed at all ages, the Children's Room went all out with super hero crafts and candy sushi.
The Children's Cosplay Competition saw 24 competitors, ages 3-12.
Costumed characters from the 501st Empire City Garrison, Empire Lightsaber Guild, and The Museum of Interesting Things were on hand to keep the momentum going to the very end of the day.
For now Sy the Syosset Cyclops -- our one eyed mascot -- is on a well deserved vacation, but please keep you eye out (pun intended) for him in the future.
