My first new and exciting event plan is to finally get my regency butt and bonnet down to the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. In Kentucky in July it's sure to be what is colloquially known as "hot as balls," but the pictures everyone posted from this year's festival were just too tempting. I must go!
The other new and terribly, amazingly exciting event that I have plans to attend is Costume College, which is something I've hemmed and hawed and prevaricated and procrastinated over for years...and it's finally time!
With Costume College, I used to feel like I had to some how prove my chops, my right to hang with the big dogs...something like that. But, you know what? I don't actually care if I go to a single class. What I really want is to go hang out with all my online costuming friends and maybe drink a little while dressed to the nines in stuff that makes me feel pretty and glamorous. That's what I want, and that's my goal for CoCo 2018.
So, who else is in? Who will I see there? Who will I finally get to meet?!
