Florence Pics -- Part 3

And here is part three of my Florence pics: The post 16th Century costumes at the Stibbert Museum.

This is not a very large album, but it does feature the pink, furry pimptastic mens's suit. Flava Flave would be proud to wear one of those. With a grille, no less.

So here is the link to the regular album, and here is the link to the slideshow. The slideshow shows you a much better quality of image.

More to come.

Did you go on the Pisa trip, and if so, did you take pictures you are going to be posting? I am also still trying to decide whether to post pictures of some of the slides I took....

No. Sadly, there was no room left. I stayed in Florence though, and had a great time at the Galleria de la Academia, and shopping around.

On the slides, after giving it much thought, I decided against posting them for two reasons. The first one is copyrights. Although we did take pics of those slides, and technically the pictures are ours, the original slides are not. Therefore, I don't want to get in trouble. Secondly, they said that they were going to post the proceedings to the website at one point. Since the proceedings would presumably have to be those Power Point presentations, one could hope that they will post them for all the world to see, and that the quality of those pics will be better than anything we snapped during the presentations.

Here's to hope.

In the meantime, they remain safely in my camera and computer files. I will show them to whoever wants to see them, provided they are shown from my computer. But that's where I am. Perhaps I am being paranoid, but one can never worry too much. :-)

Isn't it though? And I bet that whoever wore that pimpalicious outfit did so with plenty of accessories.

Where's a grille when you need one?

18th century stuff
Highly recommend Art of the Embroiderer and 18th Century Embroidery Techniques if you plan to do 18th century embroidery; lemme know if you're interested in recommendations on 18th century clothing books (or if you'd like to get involved with doing 18th century living history in the area).

Once kass_rants finishes my stays, I'll be getting involved with my 18th century group again. You might enjoy that too (at least shopping at the Market Fairs) ;) but there's lots of other opportunities to do 18th century around here, anyway, since I notice a few notes on the pictures indicating that the costumes are tempting you. ;)

Re: 18th century stuff
Thank you! I am indeed interested, but it is a matter of availability of time. Something to think about, definitely. :-)

The neat thing about "Art of the Embroiderer" is that the instructional text is by an 18th century French embroiderer. Who better to learn from? ;)

Man, every picture more wonderful than the last!

HUGE flashback - y'know that cream colored men's vest on the first page? Back in my first go at grad school (theatre) I copied it when I was designing a period Cinderella - the prince wore it at the ball. Haven't seen a picture of the actual garment in yeeeeeaaaaarrrsssssss....hey, if I'd known about those shoes they'd have been in there too!
