...Oh heck, I stopped counting.
|Well my dearies, it's been a while. I had given the dress a little break as I was too busy with school and whatnot. Then, it suddenly dawned on me that I had little over a month to complete it to have it finished in time for Fêtes de la Nouvelle France 2009. *ACK* Panic mode set in, and a week later, the dress is almost done. Yay for panic mode!|
So, here is a rundown of what's been done since last time;
|That about sums it up... |
All I have left to do is:
|I will be bringing some dresses from last year to the festival, after checking them over to make sure everything is still in order. I'll have a couple new accessories, perhaps a new miniature portrait brooch or something *squee*|
This year I have the good fortune of having being invited to stay at a friend's place in Québec city. This friend is also a costume fanatic, and will be going to the festival each day, which is terribly convenient. As a host gift, I plan on bringing him all sorts of goodies; I have some lace I want to give him, I want to make him a miniature portrait brooch of his very own (perhaps with hunting dogs, that would be so cute!), and a hand-painted fan by yours truly. Hopefully I can get all these things done on time.... I will try to post pictures as I get things done. Oh! I can't forget - a nice bottle of wine to top it all off (can't go to a Québecois' house and not bring wine *tee hee*). Québec is really strict about the wines it imports and distributes, so finding an international wine there is really hard.
I truly and honestly can not wait to share pics with everyone. Cross your fingers and hope that we don't get rained out. Last year we had a couple days of rain - it really shortens your costuming week when that happens.
