Here comes the rest of the pictures from “The Day of the Big Crinolines” (part 1).
As the day progressed we walked round the old town of Gamla Linköping, visiting small shops and gardens, taking lots of photos and buying some new stuff.
Maud, in the sun with her new umbrella/parasol.
Sara of “A costuming Engineer” in her stunning new 1860s gown.
“Hm, you are very strange madam…”
When the shops closed (and the tourist headed home), we all went to the old times skittle-alley for some resting and playing in the shadows.
Barbaras jacket are made out of a tablecloth, can you believe it.
The whole outfit looks so smashing.
Just general fooling around.
We ended the day with a nice dinner at an beautiful old restaurant next to were we sat.
The food and the company was great, but we were all a bit exhausted by the long and hot day.
Then it was time to say goodbye.
Hopefully we’ll be able to do this again next year.
I probably should have stopped at the crazy group picture, but since this is my blog/account of the day, I will also show you the les glorious pics from after we said our goodbyes.
At the buss ride home, hot, tired and sweaty, I encounter my other sister – all fresh and styled for a night on the town.
I just had to do a un-glamours bus-selfie. After a long day of costuming in the sun…
Once home I finally got to take the boots of, and take a look at my sad feet and socks – the blisters will stay for quite some time I’d wold think, but mu bellowed stockings are lost to all hope of saving.
Goodbye my friends, We had some good times together.
You could make any historical costume look better and would always stay in place (above the knee) even without garters.
I will miss you, and have a really hard time replacing you.
