Video from November 2011 DFWCG Georgian Picnic

This is a very late post regarding that past Dallas-Ft Worth Costumers Guild event, so I do apologize with how long it took us to put it together.

We didn’t have as much footage to use as we had hoped. We’re still getting used to the idea of remembering to take photos and videos since we’re having so much fun!

Also, sadly, our computers do not like editing the HD video. Unless we reboot our computers constantly, the end result is a very choppy-jerky result. It’s a shame, but it’s what we have to work with at the moment.

My husband, Christopher, put this together last night. I think he did a cute little job with what he had to work with, and I look forward to having more footage from future events!

I hope you enjoy the video!


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.

  1. It was a blast! Seeing people juggling and doing other things in costume was too cool. Too bad the wind wasn’t blowing the other way…there’s a shot of several of you facing that direction with no cars in the background and it really looked like something from a movie.

    Looking forward to next November!

  2. It was a blast! I’m looking forward to the next one, and I hope I’m able to finish my new costume and accessories in time, as well as your costume!

    I also hope we remember to get a lot more footage to make a few more fun videos 🙂 If only we had more period stuff, but it’s better than nothing. Once I saw the artwork the DFWCG used to advertise the picnic, I just knew we had to bring the diabolo!

    Hey there, Looks like it was fun! I live in California and am part of the GBACG here and have loads of family all over East Texas. I’ll try to see if there is an event next time I visit the area!

  5. @Merja: Thanks for checking it out! I agree, it is very neat to see costumes in motion. It really takes it to another level to see how garments move and behave 😀

    @Jen B: Thanks so much for the reply! Even if you don’t see an event listed on the DFWCG page, you might consider contacting the group — you never know, they might throw something together so you can visit with them. Best wishes to you 🙂

  6. Dear Cynthia,
    Your video was such fun to watch. Running after kites is always a hoot, and in the “outtake” at the end, to have the thing fall suddenly on someone’s shoulder: I snorted.

    Just discovered your blog; how could I have missed it before? It’s terrific.

    Very best,
    Natalie in KY

  7. Thank you very much for your reply, Natalie! It’s always a pleasure to meet others — I’ve added your blog to my follow list as well! Looking forward to seeing what you share 😀 Best wishes!
