Historical Costume Inspiration Festival Update
A polyvore banner to celebrate the upcoming Historical Costume Inspiration Festival! I am quite new to polyvore, and have been having tons of fun with this! What do you think? Feel free to share it on your blog to let others know about the festival! If you haven't yet heard of this event, go here to read more! I had a few people comment with questions, so I thought I would address them, and add some of my own:
- You don't have to do a thread-by-thread reproduction to enter. As long as your costume item is inspired by something (it can be specific inspiration(s), or a vague theme - up to you!) it will work!
-Individual items such as a bonnet, a corset, or a shawl can be entered too, not just complete dresses/ensembles.
- Mens/boys clothing can also be entered. I've made some fun costumes for my brothers over the years, and I'm thinking about sharing some of them with you all during the festival!
- If you plan on entering, or if you just want to help spread the word, please grab one of the buttons to be found here and place it on your blog sidebar (with a link to the original post).
If you have any further comments, questions, or concerns, please feel free to let me know and I will be glad to address them!
