Reading PA WW2 Weekend

It seems like I make it to Reading WW2 Weekend every other year -- lol. Went in 2008, 2010, and yesterday. Because of Reading's strict rules for German soldiers, a LOT of them have bailed. Where the Germans once were was an empty field. There were a few there, but it seemed dead compared to 2010. I still had some fun. I took lots of pics and I looked rather bangin', if I say so myself.

I was told she was more vintage than

It was a fun afternoon with friends and family. I didn't buy much. I'm not a re-enactor so I don't need any of that stuff and I don't wear real vintage clothing and I can make the equivalent for much less...but I LOVE vintage magazines! Yeay!! I have a collections of over 200 spanning 1912 to 1962! I found a stand that sold magazines for resonable prices so I scooped up a few:

Secrets (Nov 1944), McCall's (Sept 1944, Modern Romances (Sept 1942)

I decided to wear pants to the event for something different! I put on a poofy 1940s cotton dress (that I made) and I felt silly in it -- lol. So I pulled out these old handmade late 1930s trousers and wore them with my 1944 handmade blouse. Much better. Everyone else had on a dress, stockings, and unsensible shoes ;) Also, I got called "a rockabilly" -- Lulz. I have rockabilly elements to my style, but I thought that was kind of cute/amusing ;)

And that was it!

  3. Do tell us about Modern Romances when you get a chance!
