Big Poufy Victorian Dresses

My project was approved today! I delivered the concept presentation and took questions for three hours – a long time to stand, and for me, a long time to go without eating. I can complain with the best of them about management changing their minds and getting picky on details, but I must respect the executives who sit in the power seat in a room of fifty, week after week, making the decisions that will determine how a hundred people will spend the next year, along with millions of dollars.

Plus, another triumph - Apolo and Juliane won on "Dancing with the Stars!"

After using so many words today, I don't have many left, so I will instead be inspired by our upcoming dance concert and Bubandpie's post on why she wants to be a Victorian. Here are a collection of dance photographs in mid-century Victorian costume from prior shows. Enjoy!

i just headed over to bubandpie's to let her know that wearing the gowns really isn't all it's cracked up to be... ;)

Bon said...

congrats on the project, indeed.

and the dresses rock...although i wore one once, when i was a teenager hired out to play croquet in one at a ridiculous "historical" event, and damn, it was uncomfortable.

Great news!

I was away last weekend (hence slow blog reading) and happened into an IKEA, where I saw lots of cute sealife and thought of you.

Nice pictures :)

Lady M said...

Thanks for all the kind thoughts, sealife observations, and congratulations! I'll have to write sometime about the flip side of wearing the gowns. Glamour, with abs of steel. Yeah, the corset underneath. ;)
