Last weekend I had a lovely time traveling north to madamekat
's birthday gala. isabelladangelo
and I were rather like the Keystone Cops getting up there (and getting dressed) but once we got to the party I had a wonderful time. It was great fun hanging out with the costuming contingent including laracorsets
, & sewloud
- yay for talking and meeting internet people in person!
I wore one of my most favorite "this-old-things", my sparkly Regency dress and the Golden Diadem Bridget made me. It was fun to pull them of the closet and wear them again.
One of the reasons I didn't try to make anything new to wear was I was too busy making a birthday gift for Kat! I made a little beaded bag. I quite fell in love with the little bat design
, especially once I put the sequin eyes on him, he really came to life. I might need to make one for myself now! I used the 2.5mm silver and 3mm gunmetal sequins I just bought from Cartwright's. Yay!
The day after the party madamekat
took us to the famous Jomar. It was quite the experience and I found a couple of neat things, but more on that later... :>
