Usually around Halloween at school, we do a “book character day” so that the kids can show off their Halloween costumes. It’s the way we get around the folks who get their knickers in a twist about the holiday...anyway, this year I am going as a subject of a Biography, Mary Todd Lincoln, as I have had a few people tell me that I look a smidge like her. So, going to use my new Mourning gown, and my Lincoln Cockade and the Whitby Jet cameo necklace that I got from an antique place. I’m going to wear my Mom’s black dangle earrings. No idea of the stone, other than it’s heavy! Possibly onyx?
Pictures on the morrow, I promise. I have to get up super early so that I can do all that hair stuff, and corset..
Just one way I am trying to sneak in a wee bit of Living History where I can!
