Re: material for a court dress.  I forgot to say that if you want sleeves to match the skirt, you will need at least an additional yard, maybe 2, depending on the structure of the sleeve.

Have a good time in Paris.  I really do envy you, I don't expect to ever travel abroad.

Hi!  I am using the mac for free @ Hotel Duquesne Eiffel, but the keyboard is clavier Francais so it is slow going since the keys are not in the same location as on an English keyboard:

Thanks, Melusine for the costuming info.  So far Paris is quite nice.  I promise to post pics.

I'm baack!  Had internet problems in France, so with the exception of the first day, I haven't been able to access LongLocks.  I think I'm caught up with the journals and postings.

Ok.  So, yeah, Paris is awesome.  I'm already planning a return trip.  I could have easily stayed another week, but hubby had to get back for work.

We took tons of pictures.  Somewhere around 608, actually.  They are posted on facebook, in like 5 albums!  You must be my friend to see them, though.

Most French women wear their hair down or in a ponytail, which is what I did except for a couple of days.  The weather was mostly gorgeous, and a welcome break from the summer heat of AZ.

I am now a member of the Royal Court of the Arizona Renaissance Festival, which starts in February 2011.  I'm very excited for this role, both for the improv. acting opportunities as well as the costuming.  Our first meeting is this weekend-this RC is a brand new thing at our fair.  Squee!!!

I just got notice that my role has been changed.  I was going to play Gillian Whyting, Marchioness of Berkely (the Queen's childhood friend) and am now Lettice Blacknall, Duchess of Somerset.  Well.  Guess I'm moving up in the Faire world.  This is a fictional Royal Court, not an historical one.

Squee!  I'm sooooo excited!!!  I've decided to take up blackwork embroidery for my costume.  I'm starting small, hope at least to do a handkerchief and dream of doing a partlet collar and/or cuffs.  At the very least I'll have an authentic activity to do while at the festival, making a sampler!

I've ordered some cassia from mehandi.com, I'm looking forward to trying her product.  Its been awhile since I used cassia.

I'm getting quite close to waist length and I think I want it longer.  Yeah.

Hey Sakina, welcome back. I figured you'd enjoy the break from the southwest summer. Cool new icon, by the way. Your hair looks really dark.

Good luck with the embroidery.

Thank you for the welcome, Angel.  Paris was amazing and I can't wait to go back. My hubby took the picture at the Louvre- I didn't know he had taken it until we were downloading that day's pics.  It was quite dark in the hall, only natural light from windows.

Apparently blackwork looks far more complex than it is.  Thanks, I hope it works out-if not, at least I'll have some cool patterns for other project ideas.

Ugh!  I've been suffering with a headache since yesterday, complete with muscle spasms.  I got an adjustment that helped but its still hanging on.

I'm super excited for tomorrow's costuming meeting.  Hope my headache is gone by then. 

Also super excited for the Samsung Galaxy S I'll be getting very soon.  One of the Metro stations, Opera, I think, was completely decorated with the Galaxy adverts.  !

I tried a new deep conditioner I got from Whole Foods-olive oil and avocado.  It has a cone in it so my hair is super slippery (yuck) and the fragrance is so strong I can't stand the smell of my hair.  Won't be using that one again.  Found a new one I want to try on naturallycurly.com but they're sold out at the moment.

My cassia kits from mehandi.com arrived today so hopefully Monday we'll apply it.

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend!  Woo hoo!!

Oh, and Halloween plans are underway.  I was going to audition for Fear Farm, but its an hour away from my house and I just don't want to drive that far 4 nights a week.  I'm hoping to catch another attraction that's closer to home.  That means I'm not throwing my own party this year.  I've been invited to one and frankly I'd just like to go to one.  Thinking of costumes, I was channeling Josephine, Napoleon's wife with my hairdo this morning.  I took some pics-I think it turned out pretty well for a trial run.  I might do the Edwardian vampire again, or use elements from that costume to make a hybrid Empire/Edwardian costume.

Good thing I didn't set an audition, 'cause I caught the flu.  Today is the first day I don't feel like I want to die.  I can't remember the last time I got so miserably sick.  Anyway, I'm glad to be on the mend.

So, being sick means I didn't apply the cassia treatment.  I hope to do it late this week or on the weekend.  My schedule is really filling up with Festival stuff-mainly fabric hunting at this point.  I have new patterns on their way, so I haven't even designed my costume which must be approved (as well as the fabric) before anything can be started.

While I've been sick I've been pineappling my hair which has proved to be quite nice and effective in keeping my hair out from under me while sleeping (well, trying to sleep in my case) and off my neck during fevers.

Hope you feel better and glad you had a good time.

Congratulations on being appointed to the Royal Court.

Have you heard of Fabrics Store.com?  Great place for linen in all several weights and blends.

Angel: Thanks.

Melusine: Thank you x 3!  Thanks for the recommendation.  I'd come across them in searching for handkerchief linen but find their site a little confusing.  I don't know anything about the weights of fabrics.  What do you recommend for a partlet?  I've been looking at silk gauze and silk organza but would love to have a suggestion from someone who sews.

Do you wear a partlet with your garb?

Thank you, Curlgirl64.  I am feeling somewhat better.

Today I actually managed a shower and to wash my hair.  I have a chiropractor appointment to go to this afternoon.
I'm still coughing a bit, my ears are about 3/4 plugged and I've got some congestion.  I had to cancel today's voice lesson though.

I've been using the DevaCurl gel for at least a month now and I want to go back to Kinky Curly Curling Custard.  I think I want both on hand to alternate and use the KCCC when I'm feeling like I want to be super wavy.

I'm hoping I feel well enough to get some fabric looking done today.  Don't know though, I haven't eaten much in the last 4 days.  Might be too soon.
