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.
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.
