It's official. I just got this:

I want to go back to Florence. It is a wonderful city, and I didn't get to see nearly enough of the sights, the museums, or Tuscany in general. However, I am not so sure if a Dressing for Dance theme is necessarily one that I find as enticing as a Janet Arnold colloquium. I guess that I will have to wait until there is more information in order for me to make a decision. It's still early in the game.

In the meantime, nothing says that I can't visit that fabulous city next year, this time with my ballistabob, costuming symposium or not.

Here's to hope.

(BTW, the proceedings of last year's colloquium are now online. Yay!)

It's in the same page when you click on the link "CLICK HERE" in the announcement above. Once you click on it, it will take you to the general page. You will see a box in your left hand that says "Login area download proceedings, pictures and other material" You will have to register but it's free. :-)

Thank you :-)

And are the proceedings in English or Italian? If Italian (or French or Spanish, for that matter), I can translate. If English, all the better :-)

Most of them are in English, and they are audio files as opposed to written files. You can listen to your heart's content. I highly recommend Carol Collier Frick's lecture on codpieces. It's hysterical (and awesome).

I thought that was Maria Hayward??? haven't looked at the schedule since we left!

Dress for Dance emphasis makes it easier to skip the next one. Not sure where (or when) we're going next!

I'm pretty sure it was Carol, she's a hoot. We can always look again at the schedule, just in case. But it was a great lecture.

Yeah, I think that they will still get a good audience for this one, but it's going to be a different kind of audience. I think this may have come from the lady that was giving the demo on how to dance in a farthingale. I would have preferred something less specialized, but I am sure that there will be people out there that will be thrilled with this topic.

But it certainly takes the pressure off. Let's see what they do for 2013 ;-)

The subject for next year's Costume Colloquium doesn't knock my socks off.... Not going to a conference helps have more time for seeing the sights :)

My thoughts exactly :D
