GBACG Goes to the Gaskell Ball

I am oh so woefully behind — about a month ago GBACG went to the Gaskell Ball, and I did actually take some pictures! Our theme this year was Victorian fantasy, and only a very few of us dressed up. Bridget wore her fabulous fairy costume, I wore my 1830s evening dress with elf ears and my LOTR circlet, and a woman whose name I’ve forgotten came as the sun (am I forgetting anyone?). Sadness! Next year I may have to just make it no theme, or just pick something along with whatever I want to wear — if I’m the only one wearing it, it should be something I’m excited about! I did think seriously about how much I want to sell off all of my non-natural fiber costumes. This dress is an acetate taffeta, and while it wasn’t horrible because of the low neck/short sleeves, it was definitely uncomfortable. Anyway — pictures!

    That is sad! I think is sounds like a great theme too. Actually it’s sort of the theme for my Fire costume… You looked cute by the way! :>

    Sun lady = Rachel = me. I’m glad you put some pictures up, do you have any more? I may have imagined it, but I thought there were a few more…mostly I wanted to see how my crown looked to the world. (that night after I came home I just ripped it off and passed out). Thanks! I’ll see you this Sunday for Little Women-ing!
