I wrote a novel!

Well, sort of… I have written 50,000 words since November 1, and in so doing, I have begun a new novel. The story isn’t quite finished, but it will be soon! Then the editing process begins. 😛 😉

I even finished a day early by writing 7000 words today to catch up. I missed writing days because of the Make It With Wool/American Heritage Festival trip. (If you write every day for 30 days, you can reach the 50,000 word goal by writing 1,667 words each day)

Modern Narnia- formal

Some of the inspiration for this dress was taken from the costumes of Susan and Lucy Pevensie, queens of Narnia. The embroidery in particular, as well as the general silhouette.

I made the dress earlier this summer for the CraftStylish dress to impress challenge. You can find a more detailed description of the dress there.

Modern Narnia- informal

The color scheme of this outfit was inspired by Lucy’s outfits in LLW (Blue with orange accents).

(Here’s an image of Lucy in her camp dress and dark orange cape)

(And here’s one in her coronation outfit–also blue with orange accents)

Flowers are a must for any female Narnian so I put a flower in my hair and chose a dress with floral accents. Finally, the shoes are practical slip-ons, and leather, of course.

Hmmm, I must say, this isn’t the best picture of me, but it does show of the outfit.

Narnian costumes

These are the costumes we put together to wear to an exhibit that we attended on Phoenix a while back. My costume (the black one) was actually made for my 16th birthday, and I took inspiration for it from the same time period as the costumer for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie. It consists of a green-gray silk underdress and a black silk overdress with elastic shirring (obviously historically inaccurate, but I did say inspired!).
Moriah, in the red and yellow dress, made hers (with my help) using the S&S girls’ regency dress pattern.
Bethany’s pink dress was made in under 48 hours. We realized she didn’t have anything particularly narnian while we were scanning the narniaweb costume site. When I saw the dress Lucy wears for King Caspian’s coronation, I knew that I could easily recreate it with supplies I had on hand. I quickly looked for images of the embroidery and cut out, sewed, embroidered and appliqued like a crazy woman! Amazingly, I didn’t even have to finish anything on the drive up.

Technically, I suppose none of our costumes are really Narnian inspired, because even Lucy’s dress is Telmarine! But we had fun nonetheless.
