Various issues, both personal and global, (COVID being the biggest one) have kept my little group from meeting up in costume and touring the local sites and taking photos. Therefore, I’ve had nothing Victorian to write about.
But, last week, Dalnavert put out a call for volunteers to come in costume to be photographed for future ad campaigns. To keep the rules, the group was kept small and most of the photos were out doors. I confess, we weren’t always good about keeping 6 feet apart but our city has done very well with the virus. (Something like 30 active cases and 7 deaths total) so it has been hard to remember to be vigilant!
Here are some photos I had taken with my phone of the event.
I have always wanted to have enough of a wardrobe that I could mix and match pieces for completely different looks. I used the hat from my Olive dress, the shirtwaist from my walking suit, the skirt and reticule from my summer ensemble and the belt from my senora dress. I think it looks pretty good together!
Most of the official photos were taken outdoors in the gardens but after the shoot, we models wanted some indoor photos with our phones so we headed to the solarium. There was an absolutely gorgeous tea set in there that I had never seen before!
This model is one of the biggest assets the house has-very knowledgeable. We shall call her the lady of the house.
We had a gentleman model. Very dashing in his tails!
Then there is the lovely Mrs. M!
It was a lovely time! So good to get back into costume! I look forward to seeing what photos they end up using in their future ads!
