Costume Con, events, Frock Flicks, shopping

Costume Con Documentation!

And no, not the historical masquerade variety! I have been SO wiped since Costume Con that I didn’t even upload my photos/video until yesterday. But I finally got it together to post my photos to Flickr (posted there because most of them are very, very random) and videos (most of which will be boring if you aren’t in them – the cupcake dance, the cupcake dance pt. 2, and a bit of the Eugenie ladies standing on stage after receiving our award [I do like Trystan’s fist pumping action!]). Also, Trystan posted the latest Frock Flicks podcast, recorded live at Costume Con 26 – please to enjoy!

I am working on getting all the info up on the Eugenie dresses, but unfortunately am waiting for the official Con photographers to post their photos from that night (altho there are lots of photos of us out there, most of them aren’t the clearest).

On Saturday I went to Cain’s Crossing Renaissance faire with a few others from Bella Donna – no stage show, just lots of singing and having fun. Now I am seriously jonesing for a new Venetian dress, but of course not for the fabric I already have! Where oh where can a girl find a green & gold damask (in silk or cotton/rayon) without spending $10,000, I ask you?

    Just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful pics and costume references! I’ve learned so much about time periods. The cupcake dance looks like fun too!

    Kendra, by jove, I HAVE IT! Green and gold damask — it’s gorgeous stuff — about 10 yards, I believe, and it’s been in my stash for a couple of years — with no project on the horizon. If you’re interested, email me through my website: http://www.vermilionvintage.com

    Jackie – on the off chance you’ll see this! I’ve tried to email you twice but no response – did you get it?
