My Regency group is having a Halloween assembly next week, and I've been having fun getting ready for it. My sister is going as a zombie (a la Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) so I made her a dress out of an old sheet, and today we spread it on the lawn and flung grey dye and coffee grounds all over it before stomping some grapes into the back. Now we just have to drizzle some fake blood down the front and make a few more rips and tears.
Another project I've been working on for the ball is updating our collection of Regency pictures to make them spooky. Here are a few of my favorites.
