Now, on to the actual subject of this entry...
This Halloween season has started a week early, it seems. Since Halloween is a Saturday, people are scheduling parties a week ahead!
This year I decided to dress up as Attolia/Irene from The Thief, The Queen of Attolia and The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. (Yes, the title character of the second book.) Yes, I know that nobody else really knows who that is. But if I did something everyone else likes I wouldn't have had near as much fun putting my costume together, and really, my own entertainment was all I really cared about anyway.
I was asked to make a Rustic Apple Tart for the Illustration Association party. (They gave me the recipe.) Here is the finished product:
And now some costume pics.

Gotta get a hair shot (even though Irene's hair is supposed to be black...)
Who am I that you should love me?
