I can’t believe I haven’t linked this before — I really am suffering from terminal laziness — but my Venetian courtesan gown is one of the two featured costumes at the Realm of Venus’s Italian Showcase. Here’s me — the pictures are all very familiar, but the text is different from my dress diary. It’s quite an honor to be included — there’s lots of other amazing costumers featured in this showcase.
The other Jan. showcase is really gorgeous, plus you should also really check out Jennifer’s Florentine gown (wow!) as well as Anea’s. You can check out the full showcase archive, vote for your favorite from 2005, and of course the Realm of Venus site itself is the go-to site for Venetian costuming.
