I haven't had time to play with my camera for a few days, so this is an oldie that I may have actually posted before, but hey-ho! :)
It's not a show-off photograph, but it's a show-off costume I made a couple of years ago for a LARP game, that we haven't actually played yet. Sadly, if I want to wear it now, I'd have to lose quite a few stones in weight before I could fit into it. Click for a bigger view.
It's in six pieces altogether .... the bustle cushion, the underskirt, the overskirt, the bustle, the bodice and the apron. The bustle is filled with hessian and is very heavy and the bodice is boned, but as a whole costume, it is surprisingly comfortable to wear.
Ever since October began, the weather here has been absolute pants. It's been cold, wet and windy with no sign of any change yet. It's too miserable to go out and do anything, although I have to go to Tesco later for fruit and stuff for work.
I'm abslutely dreading work for the next couple of weeks. Our personnel lady is going to Singapore on business for two weeks and I'm supposed to be doing her job (and my own) while she's gone. Now I'm not the most confident of people, as anyone who knows me will verify, so to be asked (nay, told) to cope while she is away, is terrifying. I think you have to be a certain type of person to do personnel and I'm NOT that type at all. And then, when she gets back, she'll be in the office for 4 days, then she's taking a weeks' holiday! I don't blame her, but oh my, I am just so filled with trepidation at the thought.
Tim says I'll be fine, but I know I won't be.
