Between moving house and the event, days I had to sew a Renaissance gown: 4
Playing Queen Elizabeth at a 1588-themed SCA event: Priceless

Did you get to say, “We are NOT amused.”
It was Victoria who was not amused … Elizabeth was altogether more fun 🙂
All English queens are not amused.
Your regal stare is first-rate. ^_^
You look very nice. Probably better than Elizabeth.
Great sewing and great hair! Yes, you look better, and more comfortable, than all the paintings I’ve seen of Elizabeth.
If I do it’s because I’m wearing approximately 50 lbs less clothing than she was in most of her portraits…
I was wondering, is that a riding habit?
It looks great.
That’s a lovely gown!
Also, OMG you’re a SCAdian! You don’t go to Pennsic, do you…? 🙂
Claire: It’s technically not a habit, just a skirt and doublet, but I could probably turn it into one pretty easily.
Lesley: I went to Pennsic about 7 years ago, and I really want to go back sometime soon. Maybe next year?
Loved this event! Hated the heat and bugs. And they should make you play queen more often. I loved begging you for more money and a ship when our team lost everything….*cough*
