And Constance is the Ring Master.
During the day anyway. At the evening ball/dance/event, I'm reading fortunes!
Naturellement, the big question is, WHAT TO WEAR?? Fortune telling I have nailed already, thanks to Big Fat Gypsy Wedding silliness
It's amazing what an upside down sweet jar and a wreath of hair flowers can do ;-)
But Ring Mastering is a bit more of a challenge. We do love a challenge here at Sent from my iRon!
We could wear this little ensemble from our dressing up rack, but we fancy a new outfit. :)
I want something that looks like it has been handed down from generation to generation of circus folk, with changes made en route. Because I suspect this would be very common And fun!
Inspiration pictures include:
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this image. I love that neckline - SO Victorian, so Circus. The onesie/combination look is not for me overall however.
This image was spookily like what I initially wanted - 1830s-1850s mans frock coat in red.
A bit more predictable, and she is channelling Constance's hair, except Constance isn't channelling her figure ;-)
A bit mad. We like that.
So, we have a very feminine lacy neckline and a red velvet frockcoat-like silhouette. Add big gold buttons, lots of gold braid and I think tassels, and I think we have a plan.
Unlike several of my posts lately about starting projects, as this one has a deadline, it WILL be made. Alas the poor brown velvet frockcoat has to take a back seat while I do it.
