Welcome to my new blog about historic reenacting!
I thought I would do my first post explaining a little bit about the main character I portray,
a very wealthy Victorian era lady.
Miss Emma is the daughter of a very wealthy Englishman who fell in love with her mother, a Charleston belle.
Emma only wears the finest and most beautiful of gowns in the Paris fashion.
I am of the opinion that if I am to pretend to be someone from another era that person should be weathy and wear the prettiest dresses!
I am very blessed to have a dear friend, Christine, who also happens to be a talented seamstress.
She makes most of my gowns:).
This is my 'curtain dress' (what can I say, we all have a little Scarlett in us:).
The skirt is made from Walmart shower curtains.
The bodice is made from velvet curtain panels also from Walmart.
Hubby portrays a wealthy Victorian gentleman.
Sometimes hubby and I portray Jane Austen and Mr. Darcy.
Needless to say, I never know who I am until I see what dress I'm wearing!
Thanks for visiting-I look forward to meeting others who love history and reenacting like we do!
Come back again soon to learn more about this wonderful hobby:).
