Gloves and masks and muffs, Oh my!

This weekend was a lot of fun. I was looking forward to Storvik's Investiture and it did not dissapoint. Having time to hang out with friends and chat our ears off, is always a plus.

Sean and Elizabeth conducted a really fun last Court, in true Sean and Elizabeth fashion; and it was great to see Janina and Rorik get invested. (And saved by HRM from getting goosed in the meantime.)

It was also good to see Herveous (finally) get his Laurel. I loved what they did with his ceremony, in which all the Laurels specified who they were and what they got their Laurel for. And as for Eadric, where should I begin? He is the nicest guy out there, and does wonderful work. He is also very humble, and his vigil and ceremony were beautiful. It is nice to see deserving people get recognized.

And speaking of recognition, Lady Livia got her writ for her Pelican. Yay Livia!

All in all, it was a very good day.

Sunday, I had to cancel my Party Lite demo. I decided to do that rather than endanger my friends, what with the nasty icy roads. I will let you know the date of the next one.

On a different subject, I am working on my 16th Century mask (finally!). Gotta say, I love buckram. Once you soak that thing, it will take any shape you give it, and keep it when it dries. I will be posting pics of my progress at a later date, along with the research.

And speaking of research, I promised azpapillion that I would teach a class at the upcoming Costumers' Symposium. I think that I will go with a 16th Century accesories (gloves and masks and muffs, oh my!). I wanted to do an overview on dress in France during the Wars of Religion as well, but I don't think that I will have time to prepare two classes. What with trying to prepare my entries for KASF, deal with Carlos' school and (hopefully) going to college, ailing parents, and attempting to finish one mulberry silk French outfit that I started last year.

I much rather teach one class that is well prepared, as opposed to teaching two that were rushed.

And now, back to the drawing board.
