the line up
Since Aubry did it...

The plan:

Thursday Night (blogger meet-up): Not sure yet. I can come up with all sorts of costumes to re-wear from the closet but so many require good hair. (The disadvantage of being a hair piece rather than a wig girl.) While dressing up after a plane day isn't stressful to me trying to have good hair is. So I'm thinking probably my Titanic Kimono or a modern after five. I love to "dress up" in cocktail dresses with high heels and glitter eye shadow and I've never done that at CosCol. Besides I have a new pair of killer heels that need to be worn as much as possible…

Friday Day: Gothic Queenie dress - I never found a crown I liked but I'm still a queen. :>

Friday Night (ice cream social): Summer Bustle

Saturday Day: Green/Rust Anglaise

Saturday Night (Gala): Queen of the Night - the Peacock is in the naughty corner again but I'm having so much fun accessorizing QotN I don't even care about not wearing it this year

Sunday Day: Candy Cane Regency

Sunday Night: Liberty of London Aesthetic Dress... if I get it done. If not a modern sundress!

Still so much to do!!

I love the cocktail dress idea for Thursday! Considering I'm a little behind on my sewing, I may be tempted to join you, if you wouldn't mind... ;)

Of course I don't mind! :>

So when you say what you're wearing in the day time, do you mean for classes? It's my first time going, and I felt like from reading all the rules, they didn't want us to dress up for classes (which is disappointing!)

Just don't wear anything huge, and you'll be fine. There's a group of us that's always worn costume from the time we got there, pretty much until the garment district tour. So wear them! You'll be fine and lots of people will be happy to see what you wear :)

Yeah the booklet kinda discourages costumes during the day which is disappointing and confusing (this is a costume convention after all!). There are good reasons for it though and if you are going to wear costumes during class time you do need to have some common sense about it. The class rooms can be small so large costumes, hoops or otherwise cumbersome frocks can be problematic. Also wearing large hats, feathered headdresses or tall hair so that you block the view of those behind you is rude. Depending on the class, say a hands-on fitting class or dying feathers, wearing a costume simply isn't a good idea.

However wearing costumes during the day is not un-allowed. Just be considerate. If I think my costume will distract in class I tend to sit in the back or choose not to attend if my costume is not appropriate for the room. It's the price I'm willing to pay to play dress up all weekend!

So am I the only one of our group dressing up on Thursday, then?

Well Katherine will be in costume of course (robe de style I think)! But other than that… looks like that is a possibility. *sigh*
