I’m at Costume College, and it’s AMAZING, and I’m meeting so many fabulous people and learning so much.
I’ll attempt to blog intelligently and cohesively about it later, but for now, here are my favourite photos from Friday. I’ve named and linked to peoples blogs where possible (i.e. where my brain, which is refusing to remember anything but the two talks I’m giving, can come up with them), but I know I’ve forgotten some, so if you recognise yourself or someone, please let me know and I’ll add a link.
Jennifer of Festive Attyre as Edwardian Kylo Ren. Check out her bag!
And her parasol lightsaber!
There was actually a large group of people in historical Star Wars outfits. One of my roommates was Medieval Leia (and I forgot to get a photo!), but I missed most of the others.
Yay, 1910s! (blouse adapted from the Wearing History Elsie blouse pattern, which I have also used)
The big Friday event is the Friday Night Social. The theme was “Runaway to the Circus’, though my room didn’t really go on-theme:
Beth in a vintage 1910s hat and dress made from a tablecloth by Lauren of Wearing History.
And Lauren herself!
In the lift…
Isn’t Natalie’s green dress delicious?
With Sophia, Napoleonic circus girl, and Cynthia of RedThreaded (hilariously, people who read our blogs have mistaken me for Cynthia, and Cynthia for me)
Cynthia and Loren of The Costumer’s Closet
I love Sophia’s circus outfit – and look, she has the HSF banner!
18th century duvet cover dresses!
Home again, home again, jiggety jig, with Maggie of Undressing the Historical Lady, Lauren of American Duchess, and Ginger of Scene in the Past (I am madly in love with her dress. Just want to wear it and go frolicking in meadows).
