Fancy Dress: Fairy Tale Princess

1583aThis lady looks practically out of a fairy tale with the large sleeves and flowers in her hair. A muse of many of us writers, I suppose. Seems something Cora, the princess in some of my stories, might wear or try on. She’s from a much older point in history, though. Since the young lady in the photo seems to be posing in character, I wonder what the princess is looking at.

Fancy Dress: Late Regency

1499bThis dress looks at though it’s from the late regency period. with the fuller sleeves, bodice, and skirt. She looks quite demure, hands in her lap and fan folded. It would be nice in pink or other pastel colors.

Fancy Dress: Liberty

1472a

These twins, if memory serves, are dressed as Lady Liberty. While I’m not sure how fond I am of the shiny shiny fabric, it does reflect the torchlight well. The cord around the upper arm is a nice touch.

Fancy Dress: Maiden

1434 1435-395

I don’t recall who this lady is supposed to be, but her battle bodice is pretty awesome. Also hoping her hair is real, and not just part of the costume. The help is pretty cool, too. Overall she looks quite majestic, don’t you think?
