A lot of the fun at Historical Romance Retreat is dressing in period costumes for the various events. Here are a few examples.
First of all, High Tea in the Parisian Ballroom …
Stella’s Historical Hussies Team Photo! From left to right:- Angelina, Beth, Carol, Me, Wendy, Jacquie, Luciana … and, of course, Terry!
Next, the Speakeasy … everybody Charlestoned the night away – until the raid! I’m here with Wendy Loveridge and Jacquie Tobin.
I wore my copy of the Parfit Knight cover gown several times – here it is on Gambling Night – I’m with Beau Brummell
And at the Great Book Event …
And finally, the Grand Masquerade Ball – escorted by a mysterious redcoat!
And with new friends, May and Jim McGoldrick
My mask by Sogno Veneziano of Venice; the Parfit Knight dress and the ballgown, by Carrie Wilson of Sew Not History.
