My year in Costuming: 2019

Well, really it's more like the next 9 months. Let's just call this my costuming baby. I'm in the first trimester and feeling kind of nauseous about the whole thing. 😋

I woke up this morning and Bernadette has sent me a little present. 250 or so new subscribers appeared on my Costuming YouTube channel, so i figured I had better give them something to watch! I was going to post here about The Plan ™, so I made a video to go along with it. You can watch that here if you like:


But, just so we have it on record, here are all the costumes for the foreseeable future and the elements that go into them that I will need to deal with and where we are with them:

For Costume College:

  • Chemise
  • Bodice
  • Skirt
  • Petticoat
  • Bustle
  • Overskirt
  • Shoes ->  I may have some
  • Hat -> Have hat, need to trim
  • Get cane -> Checkbook Engineer this pproblem
  • Figure out hair

  1. Very cool! I'm sure you will get it all done as long as you don't get flustered (my usual downfall). Cheers Robyn
