Countdown to Opening Day!
« on: July 16, 2013, 11:58:36 AM »
Getting kind of antsy for faire to start.  Anyone else?  I'm starting to sort my garb and get things ready...
Hey Flidais, how many days?

Too close for comfort! I'm a first year cast and have been working on my garb as well as a full set of upperclass garb for a fellow first year, with mixed results. Thirty days to go and I feel like I need twice that at least. I've never done upperclass, I usually stick to middles and this is giving me all kinds of hell. On top of it I've had to learn accent, dialogue, improv and endowments; now I have to make favors too!! Gah! Stop talking about it!!

I mean, Yaaaay!! Faire!!!!

It's ok... it'll all work out. Really!   (I will just keep repeating that to myself. perhaps it will work for me too.)
on a side note... you HAVE to make favors? Is this a new Cast rule?  :o

I cannot wait to stroll the lovely lanes of Hollygrove.   ;D It will be a GRANDE FESTA indeed!

Ciao!

I'm tackling a new garb for this year, may have "bitten" off more than I can handle, masks are more complicated than I thought!
Still, I love going to MiRF, the range of people and the fantastic garb always leaves me feeling giddy.

25 DAYS TO MIRF!!!

No pressure....
Still plenty of time to get that garb done.  I hope.  Because I always have plans that are just a little too big.  Can't wait to see everyone's creations.  Always a highlight for me.

Just packed off a bag of garb to a young lass at Sterling so I may be needing a few things myself! :D  I'm thinking a little shopping is in order, rather than sewing at this point in the game.  Huzzah!  I can't wait to get back home and celebrate opening day!

I love the fact that Opening Day is not only a social event....

It's also a FASHION SHOW.   ;D

Happy Sewing, and Great Garb Dreams to All!

 Bodice  fixed,  check.   Tickets,  check.   Opening  day... not soon enough.   Of course,  it's  unlikely  that I'll be able to make  the first weekend,  but I live in hope  said the priest to the princess.
