Costume for The Dance and the Dawn

I have a slight problem when it comes to exercising good judgment about whether or not to buy impractical fun clothing items at thrift  stores. I have entirely too many pretty gowns that I have no occasion to wear because of it. Fortunately, however, every now and then it turns out I'm glad I have them in my closet, because a show or a larp will arise in which I can wear them without having to go out and buy anything new.

The costuming hint for The Dance at the Dawn at SLAW is fit for a fancy fantasy ball. My character is religious and dreamy, so I've decided I'm going to wear this dress, which has yet to ever come out in public.

It's very pretty and I really like how it looks on me. It's a little wedding gown-y, but I think the fantasy aesthetic excuses that a little. I also have a white satin wrap with a fringed edge that I plan to wear over my shoulders; I'll have to check, but I think it matches the under layer on the gown. It will be nice to dress up and look pretty after how run down I've been feeling. And also to justify the purchase of something that's been heretofore gathering dust in the closet.

Are you playing in the morning run, or the afternoon run?

Well, she's running a game opposite the afternoon run... :)

Random costuming for Dance note you might find amusing. I realized given the vague time period description, I may have a perfect costume for the game already... I mean, the costume for a Lord of Ice would be fitting to be in white and silver and sapphire... Not like I have an outfit like that lying around. ;)</p>

(I'm in the morning run myself... I take it you're in one of the runs yourself... Which are you signed up for if so?)

XD It's true! That IS a perfect oufit!

But no, I've already played. I am, however, NPCing in the afternoon run.
