 So, I'm wearing black to 12th Night.  Big shock, I know.

I'm bringing our raven masks for the masque, since we'll both be in mostly black (though Bob is wearing his burgundy coat, and I'm wearing my burgundy bodies), but I'm still fiddling with my ruff.  It's the same one I wore to 12th Night last year, but this time I've pinned it flat, so it fans out around my face.

I just need to make a supportasse, but that's not happening between now and this weekend.  So hopefully it'll stay up with the support of the collars and the pins.

I feel like I should make something new, but honestly, I've got so many outfits that it seems like a waste.  This won't stop me in the end (especially since I have this great puke green velvet that's just whimpering at me to be made into something), but I can't work up much enthusiasm for new sewing.

Have I mentioned I hate making clothes?  I love having new outfits, but I just get so bored when I'm sewing.  Embroidery doesn't have the same effect on me, so I tend to do more of that.  I sometimes feel that I'm not really holding my end up, and that I should have something new for each major event, but I worked for ten years to have enough clothes so that I wouldn't have to do that.

Oh, man, I'm boring.

So here are some new icons for people to play with:

Have fun!

Oooh, I have a stash of puke green velvet too. We should do something annoying like make matching goose-turd gowns.

Hee! Attack Laurels on tour! Phear our pukeyness!

It's such a great colour on me - but it makes people with tans look absolutely sick, so I always seem to be able to get it on sale.

Same thing with dirty orange. I either have period taste or awful taste in colours. Probably both. :)

No, I'm right there with you. I have a collection of pukey greens and dirty oranges, e.g. pumpkin spice fabric in my stash.

Hmmmm.. that reminds me. I need to wear my AL Academy shirt on Friday. It makes me haaappy!

Redheads! It's all about the red heads. We are blessed to wear the fabrics no one else can touch... it sorta makes up for all that "no tanning ability".

If only I had red hair. Mine is distressingly brown. Fortunately, I have that special Polish, never sees the sun, washed out complexion.

It's the delicate pale skin. And the evil attitude. :P

Sing it! I was looking at some lovely linen today and thinking it was that difficult pale orange that only a redhead could wear... muahahaha!
