Edwardian Sisters

I love attending events with my sister/sisters.
It’s so great having a companion in this crazy costuming adventure.
Someone who love dressing up as much as me, and who gets the work and planing goes into making an historical outfit with all it’s accessories and seemingly uncomfortable pieces (non les putting it on).

And since I was to wear Edwardian we decided that so should she.

The day of the event I arrived at her house, carrying both our costumes, in good time to get ourselfs ready.20150315_142515underwear selfie

We helped each-other lazing the corsets and button those buttons, and then we were of (only half an hour to late, ops).
I blame my sisters hair for taking to much time, but really, it just take a lot of time getting into all those layers.

After saying our goodbyes to the others, we stopped for some quick photos of our costumes.
