Ack! I am feeling overwhelmed by all I have left to do to be ready for Costume College! Need to finish the packing list, go shopping, and do the actual packing. And dye my hair (2″ roots not what I want to have preserved in photos for all time!). Classes are mostly done (luckily they are repeats from previous years), except for photocopying handouts and buying some extra makeup supplies.
The wardrobe will be: 18th c. tart Friday; 1760s mourning francaise Friday night; the what was a 1780s jacket, which I got a wild hair to finish over the last few days, and has morphed into a 1740s jacket – Saturday; the Eugenie/Comtesse de Montebello dress for the Sat. night gala; the comfiest thing I can find for Sunday!
I’ll post details on the 1780s -> 1740s jacket when I get back, as well as final photos (months later!) of the mourning francaise. Plus I restyled my big 1770s wig to have a better understructure, and I took lots of photos for a tutorial, so details on that forthcoming.
Oh, and the Real Women’s Clothing directory is soon to add 1700-1749! Its years change as my interests change.
See most of you at Costume College – save a pink drink for me!
Edited to add: Oh yes, and I’m going to wear the undies from the forthcoming Edwardian suit for Sunday undies breakfast – phew!
