Unfortunately, this event wasn't as successful, due to a really low turnout. I can only attribute this to a lack of promotion of the event and the fact that the location was really difficult to find. I barely found it, and really only did because I spotted someone in Victorian dress in the parking lot.
I don't want to rag on the organizers too much, since it's organized by college student volunteers. But anyone who is presenting an event has to understand that the amount of promotion prior to the event directly correlates to attendance. And that you're more likely to get people showing up if information about your location, hours, events, etc, are easily available and clearly provided.
For my own outfit, for once I did some mixing and matching. I admit I'm getting bored of my outfits. So I threw some ultra-cute bloomers together right before the event, and wore them with the black overskirt of my black and gray outfit and my patch corset. I was actually a little worried about being cold with my shoulders bare, but it was really warm that day. And when I got home the next day my porch was completely iced over. (*sigh* Texas)

I need a new camera person.
So anyway, I was a little overheated in this, believe it or not. But I'm in love with my bloomers. Except I only realized after I was wearing this outfit that wearing pants under a skirt and a corset makes going to the bathroom really difficult. No, they aren't split-crotch, since I intended to wear them alone. But it's possible I could have planned this better. I'm so used to just being able to lift all my skirty layers that it never crossed my mind.
