New Year’s Eve party – by White Mischief
exactly what is says in the title – a collection of what was happening here in the last 12 months! enjoy – and- Have a lovely New Year!
the first event of the year – Katherine of Aragon festival in Peterborough…
Prior Engagement team at the EWE in Birmingham
Easter in Devon: running ..
and hunting – the coldest ever!
and shooting bridal frocks in St. Audries Park – where we got married in October 2011!. good memories:-)
May was busy – here at a Georgian picnic
doing a Victorian Striptease inn Dragon Hall in Norwich…
entertaining Queen V at Leighton House
at the Heritage Festival in Peterborough, in June…
July – Kelmarsh festival, building a bed in the tent…. 🙂
and sweating buckets in Regency gear at Hereford…
went to our first Steampunk markets that summer too – here in Cambridgeand Stamford
we shoot our Steampunk Amazones in August too: part 1, in Yorkshire and part 2 in Thurleigh
and did a Summer Bride shoot too…
one of the Summer Brides dresses…
September – at Steampunk Asylum, here just before the fashion show…
and at the market:-)
more markets followed – ILHF and TORM
please, please, can i have some more fabric????
sometimes the markets were busy – sometimes – not so much….
we did some crazy things in October….
in November we also shot the Autumn Bride…
alas most, if not all of the Autumn bride dresses were damage in the garage fire….. including this one….
we spent 6 evenings working in Aston Hall with Black Knight Historical…and returned thee to film Regency Christmas for NBC – the resulting feature can be viewed here:
we snapped a few pictures making the best of the spectacular autumnal colouring…
and being silly at a Christmas Market at Stoke Rochford…
and enjoying working at Holkham Hall for two very busy weekends…
and seeing Christmas in London, celebrating my last outfit for the year – a mixture of late Victorian and modern:-)
Over the year we also enjoyed a few good Stitch and Bitch sessions with Julia from Sew Curvy – it is great to have friends you can work side by side with – rather rare for me, so thanks Julia for your friendship!
looking classy even at work…
Alas the year didn’t end on a good note – we had a garage fire on the 28th – in which most of my stock, fabrics, dresses etc was damaged.. 😦 lots of private re-enactment , camping and sport equipment also vanished:-( still, we were insured, so hoping some of it can be rebuilt – it will take a while though! 😦
fire started in the evening – faulty socket is to blame…. here the fire is over, just trying to get rid of the fumes..
the wardrobe where the dresses used to be….
mind you, some of the charred, sticky, smelly items may have just one more chance to take to the stage – we plan a postapocalyptic shoot… it is not everyday you have a beautifully charred wall in your garage, is it?
and so – that’s it – goodbye 2013, welcome 2014! bad or good, it will no doubt be interesting – Happy New Year everyone!
