This is a photo diary of my costuming "travels"; where I've learned and struggled to make historical costumes for myself. They're not always pretty, but always fun. most of the time. And I want to share with others what I learn along the way. **You can find me on Facebook, or have my posts delivered to your email by signing up at the lower part of the right column.**

About Me

My photo
HI, my name is Val. I'm a member of Costumer's Guild West in Los Angeles, member & Past President of the San Diego Costume Guild, member of Orange County Costume Guild, a representative of the San Diego History Center, & an honorary member of SITU (Someplace in Time, Unlimited) in Seattle. This year I am the Dean of Costume College 2018. I make my own historical costumes but don't sell any unless I get tired of one.The eras I've made so far are 1770 up to 1918. My favorite is the 1880s bustle.

Costume College 2012 starts this Thursday

And there will be lots and lots of pictures, and lots of beautiful costumes, and oh my! Four days of costumey goodness and classes. There will also be a Costume Exhibit Room, and a Caught on Camera photo display I'm doing there. If you're unfamiliar with Costume College, or CoCo, this is their link. Costume College

I have 5 costumes I plan to wear over the 4 days, and have two in the Costume Exhibit Room. I will be teaching a class on my Bloomer gown project (the patterns finally came in, YAY!), and hosting the Sunday Fantasy Tea, "The Golden Age of Hollywood Movie Awards". It will be like the Academy Awards but with a slight twist.
I usually take about 200 photos of everyone there since its so much fun to see what others have made. I'll be posting all those in my online album, and not here, so when I get back and upload them, I'll tell all about the convention and post the link to my photos.
I wished I could be dressed like this but I'm working on it.
