2011 Antique Elegance Show

I attended a show this weekend called the Antique Elegance Show. I met up with fellow costumers, and we had a great time shopping and taking photos. We all dressed up in some of the items we’ve made, and I put the photos we took into the gallery (including some photos Jen of FestiveAttyre.com let me share). You can see the photo gallery here.

I’m feeling a little rushed and clumsy today, so I’m keeping this entry short. I still need to make a page for the new bodice I made to go with the old bustle skirts I had, but I’ll get that up soon (I probably won’t do an entry announcing it).

I also need to start loading those knotting shuttle videos. I’ve been so busy sewing the bodice that I didn’t get to edit the very last video. Unfortunately, they’re so large I might have to do one video a day so I don’t go crazy (especially if I have issues with everything).

Also, there’s no time to rest! I’ve got to start sewing Christopher’s 18th century garments if I can, and maybe finish another project before November. Whew!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

    Well, it’s just lovely of course. It looks like you all had fun and I enjoyed viewing the photos with you!

  2. Thanks for the reply, Mary! It was a blast — a perfect way to celebrate finishing another garment, and I got to meet some fun folks too!

    Aw was that the one in Richardson??? I used to go to that all the time when I lived there. Maybe next time, we can meet up there too! 🙂 I haven’t been in so long.


  4. Well, you know I had a blast! I loved how people at the show didn’t view us in costume, but rather: just dressed up! And the woman who was totally amazed by your gown…that was cool. It has to be nice putting that much work into something and have it appreciated almost to the point of tears.

    It was great seeing everybody and meeting Christy and some other new people as well. It’s always nice getting out in the kilt; always nice being out with you 🙂

  5. Amy: Yes, that’s the one! It used to be called the Victorian Elegance Show, I think. And yes… you’ll have to go sometime (I’m thinking about going in February if nothing comes up, we’ll have to see). Who knows? We might have been at the show at the same time in the past without realizing it. Ha! 😀

    Christopher: I’m so glad you enjoyed yourself. Isn’t it so fun to dress up and get to chat with new people? I loved the smiles people had when they saw me wearing my gown, especially! It’s also a blast to meet other costumers — looking forward to more fun and great memories!

    And yes, it’s always a blast being out with you, too!
