Makeup test for my Blackpowder and Bloodlines character Maggie! She’s about 17 years old so I tried my best to make myself look a bit younger. I also made this lil day cap for her! Need some practice on the freckles but otherwise I’m pretty happy with how it’s turned out! 5 weeks until B&B!!

My Kensingtons from @americanduchess have arrived and I love them! 😍 
They fit amazingly well, I could have put the buckles in better but it's fine. .

Gloria here. I’ve been very much enjoying everyone’s #CosplayVsCosplayer posts! For my contribution, I went with only recent cosplays, since it’s nice to reflect on what I’ve finished in the past year or so. Catwoman x3, 1780s x2, Queenie Goldstein, Princess Luna, and Mulan. Plus a photo of me from a recent visit to the National Gallery. (Bonus points if you can identify the painting I’m standing in front of.) #catwoman #catwomancosplay #18thcentury #historicalcostume #historicalcostuming #queeniegoldstein #harrypottercosplay #princessluna #mlpcosplay #mulan #disneycosplay

This 2.01 carat rose cut sparkle babe just arrived in from @dreamdiamltd this afternoon for an incredibly special, hand-carved bespoke creation! Think Scottish highlands circa 1700s, wild thistles, gilded talons, and diamond dew-drops, all cocooned in buttery yellow gold. Keep an eye on my stories to see the carving come to life—and also more videos of this incredible diamond. ✨💎 #etsy #handmade #bespoke #diamondring #rosecutdiamond #antiqueengagementring #scottishhighlands #1700s #18thcentury #shinebrightlikeadiamond #antiquewedding #georgian #versailles #blingbling #shoplocal #shopsmall #pacificnorthwest #washington #oregon #middleearth

A work in progress shot of the recent project I've been working on with a fantastic team. This close up shows all three stages of the making of a gilded chandelier. This is all made from wood then covered in a gesso and finally gold leaf is applied. Such a beautiful design taken from an 18th century painting. .

It's Friday!  That deserves a celebration, and what better way than by posting one of my favourite garments: an amazing jacket from the first half of the 18th century.  I only wish NGV would post an image of what it looks like from the back. ⠀

Throwback Private tour of JACQUES GARCIA’S “ Chateau du CHAMP DE BATAILLE”. When you need to fill up a large chateau from scratch with empty rooms, where do you get all the decorative antique artifacts ? In this Corridor Garcia had this wonderful idea to buy a complete naturalis collection and to display everything here and to fill up the space in a dramatic and most decorative way. I am impressed and have lots respect of the capability and stunning results of this great antique decorator; imagine, in beginning there was nothing, everything you see has been created and everything from period antique artifacts and elements. #jacquesgarcia #champsdebataille #classicinterior #historichouse #chateau #interiordesign #classicarchitecture #historicinteriors #18thcentury #chateaux #normandy #castle #palace #elegantinteriors #perfectinterior #impressive #дворец #антикварнаямебель #interiör #klassik #antiques #antique #preciousmoments #antiquedecor #antiquedesign #antiquedecoration #antik #antikdekor #naturalis #naturales

Throwback Thursday:

This photo shows an interpreter cleaning the table in the farmhouse, probably after preparing and eating a meal.  Many household tasks differ little from day to day, year to year, century to century.  Just as farmers did in 1771 and in this 1970s photo, our farmer will also clean the table after dinner today, and you will clean yours when you complete your meal at home.

This offsets the holes just a tad as you can see if you look closely at this picture.  Driving a wooden peg in the hole "draws" the joint tightly together!

Getting ready to draw bore some panels and frames.  For those who do not know what that is, it's a way to join frames together that doesn't require clamps.

🇺🇸 243 years ago today, the original Amos Adams (my 7th great grandfather) marched to Lexington and Concord with his younger brother James from Groton, MA as members of their local militia.  Thankful for them and for all those who serve and have served this great nation. Proud to have this heritage and still be here in Massachusetts; “the Spirit of America.”

A bit of a #tbt today — just scrolled and randomly stopped in my photo album, here’s what you get! Swipe to see how my Italian gown currently looks. It’s really important to me to keep tweaking my garments until they’re perfect in my eyes, but that doesn’t stop me from wearing them until they get to that point 😊 so pleased with the evolution of this one, since I first finished it (sans trim) over a year ago.

#AMuseumADay | @artsmia | Sir Nathaniel Dance-Howard, "Portrait of Olive Craster", 1762, oil on canvas, 72.4 x 60.1 cm.
-
I was browsing the museum's collection page after specifically entering "portrait of a woman" in the search bar. Then this work caught my eye and I was like: 'is that a squirrel? Yes it is! Let's pick this one.'
-
The background is completely undefined, abstract even. It does not distract the viewer, and thus enhances the presence of Olive Craster who commands our attention. She looks at us confidently, well aware of her readily apparent wealth and social status as member of a distinguished family. Together with her husband she extensively travelled through France and Italy, and purchased luxury goods and accessories as well as clothing. She kept detailed notes of everything, which reminds me of the story of Isabella Steward Gardner (@gardnermuseum)!
-
The squirrel, occupied with eating a small nut, has a little collar around its neck with a chain attached to it. It probably acts as one of many examples of fashionable items that a lady like Olive could afford.
-
The artist, Nathaniel, aspired to be a history painter, but became most succesful in portraiture. He spent some time in Italy and was co-founder of the Royal Academy (@royalacademyarts). From the late 1770s onward, after inheriting a substantial amount of money, he gradually turned away from a life of painting.

Northfield Cemetery, sometimes referred to as ‘Old North Field’, is Stamford’s oldest graveyard and final resting place for 24 Revolutionary War soldiers, including Elizabeth Nichols, who saved Stamford from being burned by the British, circa 1779.

So excited to visit my hometown next weekend! There was a minor controversy in Ashfield, MA when the owner of this gorgeous #1795 inn repainted the white exterior a cheerful yellow. There were concerns about the loss of historical accuracy. However, it is a common misconception that our predecessors lived in a world of muted hues. Yellow was a common exterior color in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and, in many cases, more historically accurate than white. ☀️

#throwbackthursday This was Continental Army Impression Mk.1.0.  All the way back in 2012.  This was the first 18th century coat, smallclothes, and cocked hat that I made.  There are so many things wrong with it (anybody spot the Civil War brogans?) but it was a good place to start from.

I love my ikea sheet set which is a perfect 18th century printed cotton dupe. Found the complete set of two duvet covers and two pillow cases at a thriftshop for only 10 💲!

Spontaneous date range updates on the #fancycover of this diary (1771 to 1779).... Pictured is the Diarium der Gemeine in Manakosy, von den Jahren 1771-1779. This Moravian congregation near Hagerstown, Maryland, remains active today as Graceham Moravian Church.
