What is it about gals n' guns? This saucy riflewoman makes period reproduction costumes that have serious history geek cred.
In related news, I spent most of my afternoon going through two plastic garbage bags full of Victorian clothing that was rather unceremoniously donated to the museum where I work. While the idea of cramming these little (literally, almost nothing over a modern size 0!) masterpieces into garbage bags kinda makes me want to vomit, most of them were in pretty great condition....over the next few weeks I will be working on cleaning, repairing, preserving, photographing, and archiving them. You'll be able to follow my progress with the collection on my other blog, which I'll be starting up this week. A lot of work? Yessssss. Super-fun? Yessssss! Seriously. This is what I live for.
