It's time to finally settle a date for "Poe". It will be the Sunday 29 march (95% sure) well here goes the 5% of uncertainity : what woukld you say of the 5th April ? The date depends a lot of the date when green_martha will be allowed to travel by her her doctor (hey, we want her to have an healthy baby !), but she will certainly be there on the 29th.

For memories, the rules :
- The costumes can be in a 1809-1849 time span : Edgar Poe's dates of birth and death. It would be fun to have a little bit of everything. (For my part I will try to finish my 1848 dress on time ; green_martha will be in 1826.)

_ We're going for the gothic (it's Edgar Allan Poe, darlings !) : we will go to the Père Lachaise Cemetary, so think of coats and shawls if you're wearing one little light dress ; and the Carnavalet Museum (I will ask if they accept us, but I've been told they accept costumed people, AND, it's free, except for the temp exhibit), and the quarter of Saint-Paul/Le Marais around with it's beautiful old streets (it's the old Middle-Age/17th/18th Paris) and the garden of The Forney Library to take pictures in (if we arrive before it closes, around 17h/18h).

- The More the Merrier ! I will need to know how many we will be (3, I guess, like always) to present our case to the Carnavalet Museum.

Carnavalet didn't make any difficulties last year. I went there in 1800-dress, no fuss at all.

Ack, I'm sorry, the only appointement I could get with the cardiologist is on the 30th, so it won't be able to come on the 29th. *sobs*
Plan ahead anyway, if more people can come on the 29th, go ahead with that. We'll meet later during the week to visit the Galliéra exhibition ;)

Aw, man! Just as I am getting motivated, and that I have everything I need to make a lovely gown for the Poe-event, my manager decides to go on holiday!!!
Well, I will continue to sew and just use the gown for the next event! :'(

Looks like I won't be able to make it then either. Which might be a better idea for my health anyway (got a lecture and a bad stare by the gyn yesterday, and am feeling compeltly useless since the wedding). The train qe should take to go home (direct, arrives before there are no busses left in town) leaves at half past one :/
I'm sorry ! Have fun for me !
