i went to a comix festival in luzern and could not resist making a costume for myself even though my boyfriend assured me over and over and over that no one in switzerland does that.  well, im not swiss. and he proudly held my hand as i got shocking and/or stern look after shocking/stern look.

i made the cape using the Easy Lacey Capelet on ravelry as a basic guide.  the face mask was born after i made my friend a hat for her cat using Sara Thomas's design and saw pure gold.  i improvised the hand mitts

random tourists photographed me, and i got raised eyebrows and a hubba hubba from some geek inside the show.  i generally enjoyed myself. screw those disapproving stares!

Wow! I love the hand mitts and the mask, and the shawl is beautiful! Great colors, too. The people staring were probably just jealous.  Wink

Whoo! Penelope Peacock, you rock! LOL Hey, festivals are MADE for dressing up, so good for you for getting in the spirit. You look fabulous! (Love the colors of the yarn you used for the cape/shawl).
