Announcing – the Historical Costume Inspiration Festival!
Now is the perfect time to work on that costume project! Have it ready by the week of October 3rd – then dress up and do some beautiful photo shoots. Prepare your own blog post including pictures of your creation, tell what exactly inspired you (pictures if applicable are best), and description of materials and methods. During the event you will be able to enter your post into the link pool so everyone can enjoy seeing the lovely creations!
1. Your costume must be inspired by a particular source. A painting, movie, museum dress, character, book passage, etc. You may enter as many costumes as you wish.
2. It must have at least some grounding in historical fashion (Ancient times –1960s) but this can mean not only exact historical reproductions, but also fantasy costumes, modern twists, combinations of time periods – whatever you can imagine.
3. You must post one of the following buttons on your blog sidebar or website if you wish to participate. (for those that don’t have a blog, don't worry about it. I will have a Flickr group for you to add photos!)
Note: you can participate using costumes you have sewn previously.
You can enter full costumes, or just a piece (shoes, hat, apron, corset, etc). Doll costumes or miniature costumes are also acceptable.
The event will wrap up in a final festive week, where we all showcase our various costume creations and are completely awed and encouraged by all the wonderful new inspiration for further sewing projects! I will have a linky here on my blog, so everyone will be able to see each and every beautiful costume. During that week I will be featuring fun posts, my favorite costumes, guest giveaways, movie reviews, and interviews with professional costume designers!
Rebecca of Sewing in the Past will be contributing special guest posts!
Also, Rebecca and I will award the three costume creations that we judge represent the….
