I've been very busy lately but will try to post more, sorry for the silence!
* Locks of Elegance has a great tutorial up on how to create a gorgeous curly Late Victorian hairdo, the perfect thing for that holiday ball.
* Have great historical shoes but need some stockings to go with them? The Pragmatic Costumer has a great write up on Modern Stockings with Historical Flair.
* B*tch Pelisse! has another brilliant Dollar Store costuming hack, this time she creates some mitts and lovely stockings, check it out.
* It's heresy amongst many costumers, I know, but I never liked the Little House on the Prairie TV show. I'd read all the books before the series came out and I couldn't reconcile the 70s vibe of the show with how I'd imagined things. It turns out that Laura's real life was very different from her books as well. A new book, Pioneer Girl, publishes Wilder's original manuscript of her girlhood with additional research that adds even more new details to Laura's life.
