I’m home sick with a cold today. But because I can never fully sit still, I guess this is a good chance to catch up on blogging. When last I left off on event recaps, it was just before Costume College. Now that has come and gone, and it’s time for me to recap again (and of course, I’m way late…).
I’ll start with this photo, which is my traditional pre-convention packing explosion in my guest room. Laying everything out is the only way I can remember what to bring (and I still forgot something, but more on that later).
You should have seen us and the many other costumers who were there pawing through all the silk. We formed lines for fabric cutting that were four or five deep. Some folks mailed home boxes of silk (*cough* Taylor and Carolyn *cough*). I can’t wait to see what everyone makes!
I was reasonably restrained in my purchases. A patterned stripe, some matching silk satin, and some lightish green taffeta from Home Fabrics, plus some dark green taffeta from Memo. All silk. Also, I guess I was on a green kick that day.
After shopping, it was time for the Thursday Pool Party. I wore one of my oldest costumes, which is still one of my favorites. I made this back in 2007. I accessorized with some coral jewelry that I made more recently. I think that’s why I keep wearing this dress: it’s easy to change the accessories and feel like I have a new outfit.
