Jane Austen festival 2014

Hi! Just got back from the Jane Austen festival in Bath! It was amazing, and I am planning to go back next year! So brace yourslelf for a picture post!

Here goes:

Getting packed into the Assembly rooms tearoom to count us. We beat the Guinness world record of ''most people dressed in regency costume at one place''. There was 550 of us!!

The grand promenade 

Gathering in the Parade Gardens after the promenade

Officer, Officer!!

I bought this dress from a friend I made there, found out that two day dresses for one week were not enough. The bonnet and reticule were given to me as gifts!! Lovely, isnt't it?

''Oh, who could ever be tired of Bath!'' -Jane Austen


Knocking on Jane Austen's door at number 4, Sydney place... who knows, maybe she'll answer?

Victorian sillyness trying out the dress up costumes at the Fashion museum!

It was an amazing experience. Made lots of new friends and had a lot of fun.  Looking forward to next year!
