So today I am packing not only for Costume College, but for Goldfield Days the following weekend, too. Ah, what to bring? My 1910's gown and opera coat for Saturday night are musts (on the right). The white 1910's dress, second from left, is going to Goldfield, but could have an appearance at Costume College, too. The blue bedgown is coming whether or not I take my limited class (I hope I can! There was a billing issue, which hopefully gets worked out). Either way, it makes an awesome bath robe! 

Other than that, I'm kind of up in the air. I've never been able to attend the whole weekend before, and I'm traveling with my husband, who I don't want to completely ditch for costuming fun, so I don't really know how much I'm going to dress up for. I thought the new, Golden Anglaise and my older Robe de Madras, neither of which have ever had an outing, would be fun back up outfits to bring and hopefully wear. 

Also, not pictured, because it's still hanging on my mannequin awaiting a hem, is a new Poiret Robe Minute, which I would love to take. It's not tremendously impressive, but easy to wear, and not too big to pack.

And the final challenge: between Coco and Goldfield Days, we will be traveling in our Airstream for two weeks. Let's see what fits!
