A Little Visual Teaser

I’m sewing away furiously on an outfit for an event tomorrow. My head and feet accessories are complete, but I still need the important things like a skirt and blouse… So while I don’t have time for sewing pictures or completed garment pictures today, I thought I’d share a bit of visual research related to the event tomorrow. It’s up to you to imagine what sort of event I might be attending, and what sort of clothes I might be wearing…

  1. I thought the event was pretty obvious, until I got to the bottom of your post and there was a Zelda themed gif, and I was trying to figure out what a suffragette + Zelda mashup looked like. And then I realised the gif was an ad! 😉

    Can’t wait to see the more-historical-less-video-game-cosplay outfit!
