We are in full Comic Con prep mode here. Only two more days and time to pack up the car and head South. Besides all the product there are the elements for the booth. This year we are going for more of a shabby chic, Victorian quality. The store Bountiful in Venice is a huge influence on me, I love Sue's style so very much. We have borrowed from her, as best we can considering the circumstances.
We are fortunate that both Greg's color palette and mine are almost identical to what one sees at Bountiful. We have some sheer fabric curtains to hang in the back, a big banner of Gracing the Dawn, an antique candelabra with beeswax candles (only for show), silver platters and a glass dome.
Then there is what to wear!?! If circumstances are like years past it will be hot outdoors with icy winds bearing down on us at the booth. Thus layers need to be considered while formulating outfits. There is also the comfortable versus stylish factor to ponder.
