I used to dream of going to a Halloween masquerade in an 1860s dress. I’ve never attended a real masquerade, but I do attend a fair number of events in 1860s dresses… so that goal is half completed! I don’t actually do Halloween things anymore. I don’t really like crowds and annoying people, so I tend to stay home in order to avoid those things (not that every person out on Halloween is annoying… but so many of them are, it’s just easier to stay home). Plus, I have that added bonus of wearing historic clothes and costume-y things year round, so I don’t feel like Halloween is my one-and-only-chance to wear something I wouldn’t normally wear. Anyway, for those of you dressed up or just plain getting dressed… or those of you staying home like me…
PS. This is one my all time favorite pictures of me! I just think it is hilarious!!!
