I won two awards in tonight's Historic Masquerade with my White Star Line Able Seaman's Uniform (1912):

in workmanship: Honored for Excellence in Tailoring

*and* Best in Master Class Documentation!

(cue Kermit the frog cheer: Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy!)

[livejournal.com profile] bovil and I took a Midwest redeye last night so I could be coherent and eloquent as necessary at the ICG annual meeting on Fridy.

To our (pleasant) surprise, the hotel could check us in at 6 this morning and we achieved a) breakfast and b) post-flight nap on a reasonable timescale.

At 4, we visited the Great Lakes Distillery and came back with lovely potations for the benefit of the con suite around 6:30.

Then a mob of us went out for dirnks and dinner at the Safe House.

We returned to tempt assorted folks in the con suite with the distillates we'd brought back from GLD.

Now, it's time for me to wrap up and snooze so I can be coherent at the meeting in the morning.

Further bulletins as warranted.

I finished the undershirt (replacing the dicky I made for Gallifrey) for the able seaman's uniform tonight.

I'm pretty pleased with it, given that I had to draft the pattern from a photo of a frequently-laundered vintage garment.

And, for reference when you're looking at the photos, this is made from a woven cotton, *not* a knit...

Yesterday I took care of one of the tasks lingering after Costume-Con 26.

I had about 20 award certificates (most from the Parallel Dimensions in Design show, plus one reprint of a mis-announced Fantasy and Science Fiction Masquerade award) that had not been delivered to the awardees (they weren't ready before the convention was over). I've been carrying the folder with me to various and sundry conventions this summer, but it was apparent at WorldCon that I'd delivered all I could that way.

Yesterday I got them all packaged up with cover letters, franked, and dropped into the collection box at the Willow Glen post office.

There is one final certificate, but I just got the postal address for that this morning, so it can head off tomorrow.

It's going to make prepping the final LoEG party tight, but we're going for fewer decorations (since we don't know the hotel) plus the posters.

I worked a lot on the Costume-Con 26 online scheduling tools this weekend, and the result is now available online.

Select "Program and Exhibits" from the top menu and you'll find "Prelimnary Program Schedule" offered near the top of the left menu.

If you want to refer someone there, you can use this link: http://www.cc26.info/show_prelim_schedule.php which actually redirects to the correct page.*

The schedule is still subject to massive changes, of course, but the online view is generated directly from the latest input to the program db, so it's always fresh.

*(Geekery: the redirect gets around the issues the secure server has with drilling down directly into the secure part of the site)

The rough cut of the Costume-Con 26 educational program is now available for viewing at this online program listing page

It's got some gaps and a duplicate or two, but all the data is now in the online database, so you'll see it maturing quickly as we continue to update it with participant responses.

After about 5 abortive attempts to write the Letter from the Chair for the Costume-Con 26 program book, I finally ended up with something I'm not embarrassed to have my byline on For All Eternity, and it has been duly forwarded to [livejournal.com profile] trystbat. And then re-sent, as I realized there was a sentence missing. Such sturm and drang over less than 500 words!
(And, yes, [livejournal.com profile] jaylake, I'm fully aware how much harder short writing actually can be ;-) )

The accompanying photo is more difficult, since my good head shots are 4 years and 3.5 hairstyles ago.

[livejournal.com profile] didjiman, did you get anything at IRLM Coronation that would be useful?
