      Greetings, Historical Costuming Enthusiasts.
      For me, the year has started out very busy with a lot of historical reenacting and costuming opportunities. This weekend is the Dickens Festival in Riverside.  Help!   Val LaBor cinnamonhrts@...  is coordinating a time line of mourning costumes covering over a century for the Fashion Show.  Due to a cancellation she needs a model for an 1840s mourning gown, with bonnet. Its a modern dress size 10-14/pattern size 18. You would just need black shoes.  (See pic at bottom of page.)  Please contact her.
      I am also looking for a 3rd and 4th roomate for Fri & Sat night at the Mission Inn. shelleypeters@...
