So I never post here, well, hardly ever. But this is exciting costume related news! I have been accepted for a summer internship at Colonial Williamsburg in their dressmaking and millinery shop. This means six weeks in Virginia sewing and interpreting in costume at one of the busiest tourist sites in the country (not to mention the fact that I'll be there for Under the Red Coat, their big reenactment). Needless to say I'm rawther excited.
Other exciting things about this opportunity: Williamsburg also has a shoe making shop. I can finally develop a taste for boiled peanuts. They have English country dancing once a week in Williamsburg. Virginia is significantly south of where I live now; New cultural experiences!
Less exciting things: Summer in VA is way too hot to be wearing stays every day...
Exciting for my watchers: with any luck there'll be some pretty awesome projects that come out of this adventure!
