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.
