European Academy of Costume


[Current Location |Paris apartment]

I am trying to plan my costuming for 2009. I'm new to Paris from California. What are the best European events to attend this year and are any of you going? The time periods that interest me are late 14th c. to 1900. Here are a few that I've found that look interesting:

June 21 Vaux le Vicomte
June 21-22 Henry VIII coronation weekend, Hampton Court Palace
June 27-28, July 4-5 & 10-12 Kentwell Tudor Re-creation
July 25-26 Battle at Azincourt
Aug 29-31 Joust at Hampton Court Palace
Sept 12-13 Ville Cremieu medieval banquet & concert
Oct 24 Banquet at Azincourt

I hope the Poe outing was a success! I've been hoping to see some pictures posted here. Thanks for your input and I look forward to meeting at a sewing circle, museum outing, or costume event!

well- if you are interested in 15th century - there are two events of the Company of Saint George this summer... (The one at Haut-Koenigsbourg (Alsace) is sadly already over)

Otherwise: Bréteuil (around 14th June) and many more private gatherings.
This weekend it's an Empire-Soirée in Strasbourg, Lisotchka is coming too :-)

I used to cook with a 15th c. group! The pix of HK looked amazing. We don't have any camping gear though.
I hope you will post pix of Strasbourg - that sounds fabulous too!
