|Portrait of me in my Tudor gown, dress is made my me.|
I am Morgan le Fay, the Phantom Queen, ruler of the Isle of Apples and I am one crafty wench ! Hahaha|
I'm a self taught historical costumer and I dapple in cosplay. I love sewing and creating things of all natures, be it hats, shoes gloves, wings. You name it I'll figure out some strange way to bring it to life! I really enjoy what I do but it's really just a hobby, not sure if it will ever be a career but we will see!!
When I am not sewing I am actually a flight attendant. (Well almost, I am in training with very high hopes!) I used to work in the hospitality industry but gave that up for my dreams of adventure.
My favorite period in history is the Renaissance, second to that is a fight between Georgian and Victorian a solid third is Medieval (only because their gowns are not pouffy, I love pouffy gowns). I admire strong spirited women such an Anne Boleyn and Georgiana Cavendish because they were intelligent and very fashionable, truly women ahead of their time. My admiration for them and their time periods really inspired me to dig out an old sewing machine and sew a Tudor court gown. It did not turn out as well as I had hoped the first time so I re-sewed the dress and boy oh boy was it a learning experience! It continues to be so with each thing I pick up. I'm pretty sure I will one day have ore costumes then actual clothes.
