Shear Madness: The Joy of Impractical Costuming
Challenge #5: Popping Tags
For the past year, I’ve been a “floating” member of the costuming group Shear Madness. Shear Madness embraces all forms of costuming–historical, cosplay, theatrical, etc.–and sets forth costuming challenges every quarter for its members and each challenge has its own twist. The last challenge was “Popping Tags,” a thrifting challenge! I hadn’t joined any of these challenges before because I felt I wasn’t a worthy contender, but everyone is so fabulously supportive. With a big push of encouragement from the group leader, Laura, I submitted my striped Regency dress…and I got second place!
A big thank you to the judges, everyone in the group, and all you lovely folks who have read my rambling and supported my costuming misadventures through the years!
