sparkle!


Thanks for all the votes yesterday! I went with the sparkly. It was winning when I had to make the decision, although to be honest the deciding factor was that the embroidered had to be ironed and the sparkly didn't. So sad!

My hair came out so perfect last night too, although the picture doesn't really show it. Today it's still very curly (a la Morgan Le Faye in the TV Merlin) - and no where to go today. How sad!

I feel like if I don't do some costuming I will burst so I'm throwing self-discipline and naps to the wind today and I'm going to go sew something. Not sure what yet. I'm not even going to clean my room first... a sure sign of desperation! *hee hee*

edited to add:
Oh yes, I was called everything from a princess (apparently they are the only ones who wear diadems) to Marie Antoinette. My favorite was Queen Elizabeth - what the?!! Only my pastor guessed right. I was so proud of him, Mr. Marine and everything. He didn't even guess P&P but said S&S and everything.

Halloween is always a good reminder of just how specialized what I do is. I don't know what amazed people more that I made my dress (where would you buy THAT!) or that I was wearing a corset (my posture is so different!). Another reason to look forward to CC and other such events, where what I do is appreciated and acknowledged for what it is. And yet another reminder that you can't costume for the attention or approval of others. People will always disappoint in that regard - you have to do it for you and you alone or you won't last. *steps off soapbox*
