From the wonderful mind of [personal profile] sarahbellem...

Costumers all tend to have a specific era or genre that appeals to us aesthetically, which is fine, but sometimes we get too focused and fail to appreciate other eras or genres that might suit our body type, our facial features, or even just challenge us to think outside the box a little bit. So, I'm opening the floor for suggestions: Give me one costume you'd want me to wear, and why. Picture links appreciated. :)

And then spread this meme like SARS and I'll try to do the same for you!

You scored 26 wisdom, 44 bravery, 26 emotional, and 16 martyrdom!

A willow wand signifies that you care deeply about emotions, art, and intuition, and that you have a particular knack for charms. Your dragon's heartstring core makes your wand very effective in hexes.

RULES: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names. No tag backs. 

This is always hard because I can easily think of 10 weird things when I don't have to...

I tag chartreusekitty , colleency , edmndclotworthy , eldawen345 , jenthompson ,  lizcostumes , myralea , pinkdiamond , myladyswardrobe , sewphisticate - for some reason, LJ thinks none of you exist right now so no profile links...

All I can say is I'm appalled at how unproductive I've been this year, but then again, this has been a *ahem* rather difficult year.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

You scored as Toreador. You belong to the Toreador bloodline. Often regarded as vain or shallow, the Toreador are blessed with a striking, almost supernatural beauty. Toreador are so driven by the pursuit of beauty that they are often highly connected with art, music, or theater. While they do have a uncanny ability to seduce and manipulate mortals, many other vampires simply dismiss them as decadant pretty-boys.
















What vampire clan do you belong to?

You scored as II - The High Priestess. The High Priestess is a card of intuition, instinct and hidden knowledge. She knows all your secrets, you can hide nothing from her. Yet you will never know the secrets she herself protects.If well aspected in a Tarot spread, this card can indicate the use of intuition to solve problems; trust to your instincts. If badly aspected, it can mean suppression and ignoring of such instincts - following your head at the expense of your heart.


II - The High Priestess


III - The Empress


XIII: Death


VIII - Strength


IV - The Emperor


XIX: The Sun


XI: Justice


XVI: The Tower


0 - The Fool


I - Magician


VI: The Lovers


XV: The Devil


X - Wheel of Fortune

From [profile] sewphisticate...
You have been a very extravagant and naughty costumer-dabbling here, dabbling there, and the sewing g*ds are displeased with your flightiness. And so you are condemned to the Land of One.

1. You are limited to sewing costumes from ONE era (I was going to say one decade, but that's too soul crushing). NOTE: If you prefer fantasy or science fiction work, you must limit yourself to ONE movie or book series. Pick! Gotta stick with Elizabethan - it's still my first love
2. You must choose ONE color to work in for the rest of your life (NOT BLACK. NOT WHITE.) It is... RED! At least I can technicall get pink as a shade.
3. You must choose ONE type of fabric to sew on forever, it is... (and no, "silk" isn't good enough. Nor is "cotton." "Cotton voile," or "silk satin," however, are both suitable answers.) Easy. Silk Twill.
4. Why did you choose that ONE fabric you just chose? It's weightier than taffetta, creases like buttah, drapes beautifully, has a subtle but beautiful texture without slubs, and has a sheen like candlelight. I wan't to touch nothing else! I want sheets in this stuff just so I can roll around naked in it!
5. You can have only ONE costume whore DVD to watch forever. What is it? Hmmm, tough one. The Elizabeth R, miniseries. No, Dangerous Liasons - I never liked the casting but the costumes can't be beat!  
6. You can keep only ONE of the costumes you have made. What is it and WHY? The Red Venetian. It's a magic dress and wonderful things happen when I wear it.
7. You get only ONE website for research, or for diversion. You choose... Hmmmm, another toughie since there is so much good research online now. I'd have to go with MedCos since I could pick the minds of so many costumers on so many eras.
8. You can keep only ONE of your reference books (painful, I know). Which is it and WHY? I must anger the costume gods further by saying this is not possible. I could also go with the Kyoto book with all the joys it holds, but then I have to give up Janet Arnold for the era I've chosen to be stuck in. That's not such a good deal... harumph
9. You may keep your machines, your scissors, your chalk, thread and pins, but you may have only ONE other sewing tool. It is...  Gah. hmmm, a chopstick. I'd like my awl but I could use a chopstick in concert with my little scissors to do what my awl does, and I use mt chopstick for turning, pressing in sharp corners, stuffing bum rolls or shoulder rolls, arranging pleats. It really is an indespensable tool.
10. The sewing g*ds are feeling a little guilty about their draconian measures, so you can have ONE costume from a movie, or stolen from someone's (anyone you choose!) closet for inspiration. You take... I'd have to chose one not in my single era, just so I can have something different. I've always wanted a Rococo dress of some kind but I really love the men's suits that Bjarne Drews recreates. I'd happily take something like this for my outfit, but if it must be one for my own sex, maybe this one instead. Or any one of several that Glen Close wears in DL.

LJ Interests meme results

  1. costumes:
  2. jewelry:
    I am addicted to antique jewelry. I have several platinum pieces from ~1880-1920 that I love to wear. If I had school to do over again I'd probably try gemology, and I am fascinated with jemstones in all their infinite variety. Shiny, sparkley, pretty things!
  3. movies:
    I love towatch movies and I love to go to the theater - movie popcorn is wonderful! I love musicals, classics, westerns, war films, you name it. If it's GOOD, I like it. Of course, a really BAD movie can also be fun - all those Universal monster movies... a grand time!
  4. music:
    My first love. I have music in my head 24 hours a day, like a radio. I just fond out there's an actual term for that, but I can't remember what it is.
  5. opera:
    The most theatrical & dramatic form of music and my eternal heartbreak. It is God's little joke on me that my voice type just isn't made for Verismo music.
  6. rock & roll:
    Ah... what fun is this! I found out that a good rock song has all the elements of a good opera tune. Just like movies, if it's GOOD I like it...
  7. sewing:
    Funny that this is on my interest list. I love the creating and wearing of a costume but I hate sewing. It is a necessary evil required to get the dresses I want.
  8. vintage dance:
    I've been doing English country dancing for 25 years and absolutely love it! It is the biggest reason I do the faire. More recently I've been learning some 16c courtly dance and I am also enjoying that immensly.
