The time when I am reminded (forcibly, sometimes!) that "normal" people do not have 8 or 12 wedding dresses hanging around the house--and at least that number of other formal dresses in many styles, sizes and eras. I can't help it--they follow me home.
Other people can't resist dogs, or shoes or cookbooks. I just love costumes, and the more glamorous, the better. If you need a Venitian Ensemble for Carnival, or a Marie Antionette, a Celtic wonder (complete with cloak) or a Steampunk Gothic, I'm your girl. If you need a pair of pants mended--you're on your own.
