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, Dean Emeritus of 2018 Costume College; Past President of the San Diego Costume Guild, member of Orange County Costume Guild, and a representative of the San Diego History Center. 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.

Off the Costume Path

I promised a link to my other blog on our recent trip to France and England. It does have some photos of costumes in museums but not many. So if you're not interested in armchair traveling, I won't be offended if you're not interested in it. To read it chronologically you'll have to click on each individual day in the right column because its not showing it manually. Not sure what's up with that yet.

I will however have some costuming to report after this weekend as I'll be on a panel with the Seattle costume guild, SITU, this Saturday while they give a presentation on Los Angeles Costume College convention to their members and other interested parties. And of course we're going to dress in costume.

I would love to hear if this was any help to you. Pretty please!
