Carnival Queen

Trinidad Carnival Costume - by Nicolette Billings

Venetian Couple - by Sharon Maggott. It was really fun to shed the restraints of historical costume and go a bit over the top!  I used fabrics and trims I wouldn't normally use, such as the torchon lace spray-painted gold and used down the front of Milady's dress and Milord's coat and the gold paint and fingernail transfers on their faces.

Yep! The digests are pretty slow right now, and soccer is not my thing.
