Bardic Costume

I promised pictures of the stuff I wore to Lochmere Bardic.

I'm not on their e-mail list, so I didn't get the memo that costume was optional - I think at this point, they should probably give up and just call it their holiday party - but apprentice lisettelaroux and I dressed up in seasonal cotehardies.  I was in green, and she was in red, and I made insane holiday headpieces for us both:


 
I went a little crazy with the seasonal greenery and the hot glue gun, but I think they turned out well.

A couple of detail shots:
   
Yes, I stuck rhinestones on the leaves.  They glittered beautifully, what can I say?

I even got my hair to mostly do what I wanted it to do:



We had a good time; there weren't many people performing (see:  the whole it's really a Christmas party thing), but the pieces we had worked on sounded great and we had a nice time singing even if it was only a few of us.

And Lisette and I showed everyone how it's done.  Isn't that what it's all about?




Word to your Laurel.

I think rhinestones make everything better. And it is good of you to make sure the economy is infused with new energy by buying out all of the fake foliage east of the Rockies!

Awesome! Did you purposefully decide to match hair colour? It looks very similar.

We have both been redheads since we met; call it fate. :) (she's wearing fake hair though; hers is shoulder-length.)

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous!

What a bunch of stick-in-the-muds not to dress up for it.

The rhinestones are perfect. Little drops of ice on the leaves.

I am reminded
Your icon and post reminds me of this week's Onion:

Great pics. :D

Do you ever do lectures? I am working on the next Midrealm University Session and I'm looking for some key note speakers and I thought of you. How would I go about booking you?

Re: Completely OT
Um, if you want me, you should e-mail me with dates and the lecture you'd like me to give, for starters. Then I can tell you whether I'm available, and we can talk about travel arrangements and stuff. :) elsworthy AT comcast DOT net.

Re: Completely OT
I am complete envious of the icon. It's awesome.

I am still firming up dates so I'll email you when things are more concrete. I was mostly checking to see if you even do this sort of thing. :D
