Black Snake Creek Festival

Slightly belated, but back to last weekend. Not the weekend just gone, but the one before that. At the request of the organisers, I along with a number of other ACG members attended the Black Snake Creek Festival in Marburg. I met the organisers many months ago when I organised the Steampunk trip to the zoo, they were thrilled with our costumes and asked if we would add some historical atmosphere to their event.

We had a good range of years for our costumes. I wore my 1870s red tartan bustle again, while the others covered 1910s, 1920s, 1940s and 1950s. This time though, I styled a red brown wig into an early Victorian bustle style - using my cork wig head to do so.

As for the event, we provided ambiance, we even got to ride in the vintage car procession. And I was photographed for one of the local newspapers. It was a lovely day out and I would be happy to go again next year should we be invited.
