I would just like to say I find it bizarre that this year when I'm in school and swamped helping Rob I've made MORE costumes than I did the pervious two years combined...go figure.

Anywhoo...I had a fabulous time poking around the ren faire this weekend with the girls. oh and J and Rob. details. Rob and I were up shooting till 4am so we slept in a bit and didn't get there till like 2. We promptly ran into friends so I didn't have time to FIND anyone till almost three.

In the end the jacket was okay. I think what I don't like about it boils down to proportion. The gores go 1/2" too high, but more than that I'm just a lot wider than I am in my head. So the lack of waist curve makes me feel like a big square. I'm as wide as I am tall in the chest region and that's just not especially flattering. So my favorite pictures are when I'm half hidden THEN I don't think it's so bad.

While standing around waiting for something interesting to happen at joust we came up with the fabulous idea of going next year as the wives of Henry VIII. Which I think would be SO FUN. We quickly ran out of wives with the six of us still there, BUT Henry had so many fabulous mistresses we could so easily expand! And Rob may or may not have been informed that he needs a Henry VIII costume. *eyebrow waggle*

All in all it was a nice time, strange to be back. There are more people working there now that I know then there were two years ago, which seems backwards somehow. It feels like can it really be 6 years since I worked there? Holy cow. 

PARF 2011

So today I had a lovely trip to the PARF with [livejournal.com profile] madamekat and [livejournal.com profile] blackcat452. It is very surreal to go back. There are moments when nothing has changed and I could be there flirting with my new boyfriend having a carefree life, and then there are times when it's painfully obvious I've moved on (married said boyfriend) and don't fit anymore. Just strange.

The Good:

I have AWESOME friends.
My hair looked STELLAR (I didn't bring a camera so there are no pictures)
I actually didn't freeze as much as expected, the 1 hour 18th century cloak from Germantown came in veeeery handy.


The Bad

It was crazy crowded
It was cold
I missed [livejournal.com profile] curiouschilde and Rob.
I almost cried while sitting and looking at a giant pickle...reminded me of Lorraine and the world I had there. It was a good world when I was there.

The Ugly

the discovery in the parking lot that I have in fact gained enough weight that my jacket wouldn't close and I would have this disgusting gap the whole day. A Melt down was had and I very nearly spent the day in jeans.  Tomorrow. Gym. 

All in all a lovely low key day.

I have decided that I am not even going to try to finish the Mary Queen of Scots dress for Saturday. I'm never happy with how my dresses turn out when I do them that frantically and I can always wear the lovely dress I made last year. It's not like that is in any way a shabby dress! And I've only ever worn it ONCE! Seriously Robin get a grip here! So maybe Two people will possibly remember what I wore, that is hardly the end of the world. I may try to make a hat for it as I don't have any headwear (I borrowed a hat from Amy last year), and I would like to bring a present for the Queen. It's also possible I could go lower class, I mean that is how I spent the vast majority of my faire life when I worked there...I wonder if the costume contest is going that weekend....Either way the point is I'm not going to take all the enjoyment out of it by stressing over something that isn't worth stressing over. I'm going to Downingtown to train this week which will drastically increase my commute time and I'm just not feeling it right now. That being resloved I can now happily return to the christmas present I've been happily working on all week :-)
