|American Duchess crew in 18th century attire - Friday night at Costume College 2019|
If you're unfamiliar with Costume College, it's a 5-day costuming convention in Woodland Hills, California, at the end of July each year. During the day there are all sorts of classes for historical dress and cosplay, and in the evenings there are social events. There's also a marketplace, costume display, and meetups. You can learn more about Costume College here.
This year the crew - Abby, Nicole, Chrissy, and myself - did a few group costumes. At the Thursday night pool party we all dressed as characters from the webtoon Lore Olympus (read it. do it now.), which involved a lot of body paint, wigs, and general chicanery.
