CosCol Week Recap #2 - Friday

Friday dawned bright and early, since I had a class at 9am. My first class was 18th c Criminal Couture, taught by Emma Cross, which was very fascinating! I wore my red wool riding habit, and met up (at various times) with bauhausfrau, girliegirl32786, jenthompson, and the_aristocat, who were all also decked out in riding habits and redingotes.

                                              Red!                                                                                           Blue!

After our first meetup, I attended peacockdress's "Starting a Small Costuming Business" class, had lunch with theladysarah and zoccolaro, checked out the costume exhibition, and eventually attended Loren and Bunny's "We Like Big Hats" class. And then I got ready for the Ice Cream Social! I wore my Robe a la Turque, which was nice, since it meant I hardly had to change at all from the afternoon. Unfortunately, for some reason pretty much all of my pictures from the Ice Cream Social came out really fuzzy, but I loved seeing all the different costumes! Some of my favorites were the Disney Villains, Kendra and Merja's Maja dresses, vanessa_lynne's amazing pink 18th c frothyness, Emma's 18th c tinkerbell, and Jen's Ikat open robe.

After the Ice Cream Social (and a brief and fairly disappointing turn round the Marketplace), it was time for the Pink Princess Party! I had more fun there this year than in year's past. It's a great time to get to actually slow down and chat with people I often don't otherwise see. I wore my fairytale toile dress, and felt like a 5-yr old going to a birthday party. Can't you tell?

I'll be back with the rest of the recaps soon!

    I haven't done much sewing since my last post nearly a week ago, because I just haven't felt like it. They cancelled VicFest, and once they closed…
