Whee! This weekend is Costume College! I’m heading down Thursday afternoon and back on Sunday afternoon — no time (or money!) for a fabric district run. I’ve lost all of my paperwork so can’t at all remember what classes I’m taking, except for the limiteds which are: Cranach dress design/construction, corset cover construction, and modifying shoes. And I’ll be teaching two: an overview of bustle era hairstyles (lecture), and a hands on Victorian bodice draping class.
On Friday night for the GBACG meetup I’ll be wearing my candy cane 1870s dress. Saturday night at the Gala I’ll wear my courtesan gown, which will be fun to wear in an INDOOR environment! I’m trying to put together a slightly more period hairstyle to go with it, so spending lots of time in the bathroom wrestling hairpieces. It looks like I’ll be so busy during the days that I’m not planning to dress up, plus that means less stuff to carry. Full report (and photos, bien sur) forthcoming next week, altho I’m moving so I may lose my web connection.
