Lets start with the ubiquatus photo of all my outfit laid out...
Shockingly in the picture above you can see my chemise was showing. I thought I'd just pretend it was a chemisette as I had not had time to make a new shift with the right neckline.
Had to take the bus into town then walk to the venue...had one person do a double take and almost walk into the road when he saw us and quite a few cars bibbing their horns as they passed. lol! Got stopped on way to the vanue by tourists asking for photo's...that's one thing I always forget to allow time for people who ask to have photo with you.
Finally we made it to the Assembly Rooms. Finding everyone waiting to join the queue to go in and be counted for the world record.
I met several people I had spoken to at the festival last time I had attended and we had good conversation while waiting for the more to arrive and be counted. More on the 'count' here.
After much cheering and waving for photo's from the balcony 'Mr Wickham' made his speech and got asked why he wasn't in costume. lol! The record broken there was a shout of 'huzzah!' and people began to file out.
|Loved these 3 ladies outfits. I think I was outranked by lady on the left though looking at the gold braid. ;)|
Once we got out wasn't quite sure where we were supposed to go and if it had started off already...but noticed a parade of costumes trailing off and followed them. They seemed to do a loop round and back to the assembly rooms.
It seemed to be much busier that in past years. The town was heaving with people standing and watching taking photo's.
|Regency Wedgie society anyone? ;)|
Part 2 - what we did on the other days coming soon...
