Just a quick update to say thanks for your feedback on my bling issue and Costume College teaching ideas! You all sold me on the white Indian choker set… but then some BASTARD stole the auction away from me! I then spent the past week stalking ebay, where I found various sellers selling the same set but in different colors, until this morning when another white set popped up and I grabbed it. Now I just have to wait for it to ship from India.
And, in CoCo news, I proposed the following three classes: social history of hair (1770s-1820s), 18th c. dress variations, and 17th-18th c. patches. Yet again, 18th c. court dress gets no love — I’ve thrown that out before online and only get crickets back — someday I’m going to foist it on you guys anyway, and I can teach it to the two people who show up!
