In late September, GBACG held their Wives & Daughters Picnic in Tilden Park in Berkeley. Despite being a touch too warm, it was a lovely event, and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many costumers get all 1830s-ified! Lots of silly sleeves and even sillier hair. Unfortunately the heat killed me, so I didn’t stay long enough to take TOO many pictures, but the few that I did get are now up. I think my favorite was the perfect recreation of the 1830s Manchester Galleries archery dress!
