" A Royal Celebration"
Andrew Tandy writes:
"Having previously attended this event a number of us decided it would be nice to go as one theme.
|We started to discuss this at Easter, given the amount of work involved we should have also started making the costumes then as well. We only finished on Wednesday night! !|
|Anyway we had a design meeting and decided upon a deck of cards theme using just the royal cards.. We decided ladies would be dressed as hearts and diamonds whilst the men would be the clubs and spades.|
|Following many hours of cutting out stencils, painting and sewing, helped along by the odd glass of wine and a good laugh, the final product could now go to the ball!|
