We had glorious weather for today’s costume day but not everyone went to the beach and, after a slowish start, we were quite busy. We had some lovely people in today, and some equally delightful comments about their experience.
‘Thank you so much for all the work you put into making it an amazing experience … to see what we would have looked like as Tudors’
‘Amazing costumes, we’ve all had so much fun’
‘How beautifully well done. Stepping into time as I’ve never seen it done anywhere else’.
Thanks to everyone!
We had another Costume Day with some more lovely visitors on Monday. We were very kindly sent this photo by one family.
Some new outfits, mostly men’s jackets, had their first trip out and we even combined costumes with replica armour which went down a treat with boys aspiring to be knights. There were also a few guys up for a challenge and tried on the two paned trunkhose, one of which comes with a proper codpiece.
The smallest outfits also got an airing and looked very fetching and sweet on real toddlers rather than the model.
We’re already looking forward to the next Costume Day at the end of May, and hope to see many more willing victims, sorry, visitors!
