12th Night (Short Version)

I am still tired. I feel like I was ran over by an 18th wheeler, and I didn't gake the license plates.

I will be probably posting a longer entry on 12th Night, but for now, it's all highlights:

Best:

  • Alina and Aneira's elevation to the Order of the Laurel.
  • Cassie's elevation to the Pelican.
  • The fact that Cassie helped by embroidering the badge on Alina's Laurel cassock, and that Alina was helping with Cassie's vigil. Unbeknowst to them, both were sharing a vigil, and neither knew of their own elevations. It was quite amusing, really.
  • A shiny new Baron and Baroness. Congrats James and Kat!
  • Lots of folks being recognized: Dante (Sea Stag); Sian (Opal); Rhiannon (Coral Branch); Vitha (Silver Nautilus); Elizabeth and Elishabeth (Pearls); and I am sure I am missing folks, but you get the idea.
  • Talitha becoming Queen's Bard.
  • Singing with Alle Psallite.
  • Pictures by Bardulf.
  • Bardic at the hotel.
  • Breakfast with friends.

    Worsts:

  • Like rheabecc mentioned earlier, it was an all day court, with two intermissions. I didn't really get the chance to socialize.
  • A peerage meeting I could have done without. Yech.

    Last but not least, I am pleased how the Gown of Insanity(TM) came out. I was going for the look of Marguerite de Valois from the Valois tapestries, and I think I got the look. At any rate, the great Rheabecc took some good pics of it, and the links are here:

    Last but not least, Baron Bardulf took an amazing picture, whereas we tried to reproduce the actual pose and feel of Queen Margot. Here is the comparison side by side behind the cut:




    And now, really, I am going to bed.

    Belfebe out.
