I finally finished one of the Knit garments I cut out forever ago. It took me a while because I needed to mark the fringe while I was wearing it (to avoid puckering) and then I had to hand stitch it all down. Photos. )
I also uploaded some detail Pictures of the 18th Century hair style I did for the GBACG Open house: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48512843@N04/sets/72157625918756539/
In them you can see the padding, as well as the fake bits pretty well.

AND now back to homework, break time is over.

GBACG Annual Open House

(Click the Image to go to the Photo Album)

Today I went to the Greater Bay Area Costumers Guild Open House and was one of the models in the fashion show in the 18th Century vignette for the Upcoming event "Evening at the Petit Trianon" http://www.gbacg.org/gbacg-calendar.html

It was a lot of fun! Their was good company, drinks (HOLY COW the food was amazing!) and I got a prize at the end of the raffle even though they never called my ticket. I got a Victorian pattern and some stockings I am going to wear next week to the 1950's party a friend is throwing.

This also afforded me an opportunity to get some pictures of my 18th century Polonaise-turned-Anglaise in good natural lighting. I wore my black sash with Painted brooch, and on my head my bird, my hair pad and a few false braided "nests". Ugg, doing my hair this morning was aggravating, it was still wet from the night before, raining and I don't own a blow dryer... I ended up using a hot curling iron quasi-successfully and TONS of hairspray.

I am glad I went today, it was a great de-stress-er from all the portfolio Homework I have right now.

I'm making a hairpad/wiglet thing to make it easier to style my hair in proper late 18th century style. The Still From MA is roughly what I'm aiming for.

I'm fallowing the tutorial Here:http://www.vivcore.com/fancygirl/rococo_puff.html
