“The Characters In Costume Blogfest” Day 1 Recap

28 Oct

I must admit that when Andrea first suggested we host a “Characters in Costume Blogfest,” I was not the most observant person when it came to costumes and a character’s appearance or thinking about how a character could be create or described. But after reading everyone’s posts, I have come to a new appreciation of the emotional and storytelling force of costume and appearance. Thanks everyone for making this a thought-provoking first day!

Don’t worry if you do not see your post on today’s recap; we will be sure to include it in tomorrow’s.

    Hi Christina. Sadly I’ve had to change my topic. I haven’t the time to write about Joan and Adrian, as my brother was rushed to hospital again yesterday, but I’m writing about “Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte”. I planned to write about that one for Halloween, so what I’m doing in tying the costumes of “Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte” into that article. I hope that is alright.
