The DFW Costumers Guild Georgian Picnic 2012

To say it was so much fun is an understatement. It was the best time I've ever had costumed. I got to meet awesome costumers whom I've admired before I knew how to sew. Online friends that have become important to me. And I got to meet awesome new people. I got to appreciate all the wonderful work and skill that went in to the details you can't detect in pictures. And to let everyone know, the DFWCG is the most welcoming and fun bunch of people there is. I was worried how I would manage with my English. It's a language that I read, hear and write often but never speak. But I think I managed quite well. I did scare a little boy who thought I was a real witch. It's the Hogwarts hat I'm sure.

We had period games to choose from, a lot of good food, best company and a lot of laughs. I was really impressed with all the food. Some of it was even made with 18th century recipes. And I loved the games. Especially the bowling. And I'd love to be able to do tricks with the diabolo. But now that I don't, it was delightful watching those who can. And even if the weather didn't co-operate with kite flying, it was a beautiful sight to see the two woolen gowns floating from the running.


And because it was over all too soon, some of us changed to our normal clothes and had a late dinner. A great way to prolong the fun.
