Guess what I did last night??

So, as many of you know, I have this wonderful friend named Norma who has a WIDE variety of hobbies and interests.  Earlier this year Norma gave me her ENTIRE collection of doll houses and all the furniture and accessories to go with them.  Anyway...
Last night Norma hosted a Medieval Dinner at her house, and asked that her guests come in costume.  I have been looking forward to this event since she first brought it up about a year ago.  We'll last night was the big night and I wanted to share some pictures with you all!

My costume:

I purchased my costume online at Costume Supercenter. I got a great deal on it since it's no where near Halloween lol

Jeff's costume:
Jeff made his own costume!  It's part of his grim reaper costume from Halloween a few years ago and he made the other parts out of leftover material from the Chevelle.  I was so happy he chose to dress up, he's such a good sport :)

This is Lady Barbi of Beech Manor!

Here is the Master of the house, Richard!  I'm sad this picture ended up blurry because his costume was fabulous! They rented it from the people who make the costumes for the Nova Scotia International Tattoo!

Here is the Queen herself, the lady of the manor, Norma!! Her dress was GORGEOUS!!!

Barbi and I

I know that there are a bunch more pictures floating around, so I will make sure to add them as they find their way to my inbox. The food was absolutely as delicious as it looked! I had SO much fun!!!

Norma also made every guest a chainmaille keychain and cross! I tell ya, she's the hostess with the mostest!!!

Thanks for checking this out!!
