and she’s not the Wicked Witch.
While I sit here in the comfort of my air conditioned apartment, working on the next costume for Savvy (which is due in 2 weeks by the way), she is in almost 90 degree heat in 40 pounds of brocade. Luckily, in a back tent there is a mountain of water and a lot of people who keep their eyes on the nobles for heat related issues.
I have learned how to make a French Hood, thanks to our Queen. However, I did not get a chance to make Tudor sleeves for her costume. Next year perhaps.
By the way, the gentleman to her right was her “husband” for the Henry Faire. She had a ‘man on her arm’ and was a Duchess.
