Singing Fa La La La La, the holidays are coming!

The Very Cupcake Dress is coming along, more on that in my next post! I spent last weekend at the Dickens site for workshops and dress rehearsal and it was just wonderful being back again after a two year hiatus. For those of you who aren't familiar with Dickens Fair, it's a big tradition out here in San Francisco where a big warehousey building at the Cow Palace gets transformed into Dickensian London and every night is Christmas Eve. If you go this year, say hi to me at the Adventurers Club where I will be playing feminist and activist Josephine Butler.

In other holiday news, Chris and I will be only be doing ONE show this year for the holidays: The San Francisco Arts Market in United Nations Plaza (near Civic Center) the first three Thursdays in December (12/1, 12/8, 12/15). Chris has done a bunch of new Glowees t-shirt and hoodie designs this fall but this one is my absolute favorite, a little bit of Alice in Wonderland. Glow in the dark, natch:

I've already got one in my size. I was first in line for that one!

I'll be bringing out my market bags and hair accessories. Unless the weather is really nasty, I'll have my hats on hand too. The photo above is of the two of us goofing off at a holiday sale last year at one of the Livermore wineries. Stay tuned for more dress diary fun--yes, there has been a whole lot of costuming going on...

Time Traveling in Costume said...

I was hoping to come to Dickens this year since I missed it last year but with our recent 3 week cruise, time and money has slipped away. I really wanted to see what the expansion looks like. Maybe next year.
I hope to visit it vicariously with everyone's photos. Have fun!
