Busy busy! Aside from getting ready for Christmas and then surviving the holiday itself, I’ve been to see The Aviator (GORgeous) and A Series of Unfortunate Events (Meryl Streep’s 1890s gown was beautiful, Violet wears a very gothy 1820s-esque dress for most of the film) — reviews soon. Dying to get to A Very Long Engagement, and not-so-dying-but-it’s-playing-up-the-street to see Phantom of the Opera.
I also went to the Gaskell Ball (a very few photos here).
Got some great costume-related gifts for Christmas, including Costume Close-Up (I’d missed buying that one somehow), three of the Textiles for… Clothing books (yay for Amazon wishlists!), and I Capture the Castle and the Jane Austen collection (all the BBC 1970s-80s adaptations) on DVD. Whew!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday (for those that celebrate) or a nice day at the movies (for those who don’t)!
