I have long been obsessed with Lovers Eye jewelry. I had one made for Geillis at the Gathering. Let me the first to say that once again, to use one of these at the time of our story is inaccurate. Lovers Eyes did not show up for another 40 years

Many have asked for more information about them, so here you go.

Some samples of the real thing.

Oh how much did I LOVE this costume!!!!!!!!

Ned Gowan is one of my favorite characters in the book, and this costume was so much fun to do! Bill Paterson is perfection. Such a lovely, lovely man.

Our aging and dyeing team did a fabulous job on this!

Padded White Cell

27

I want to live in a padded white cell. I am thinking of making white quilted wall hangings for the bedroom. There is no more room left in my brain for color or texture. Maybe a white quilted jacket with intricate lacings to wear while in the cell. Sounds heavenly.

So, I am on a search for that cell. I have  a two week window before the holidays shriek in and shred the lovely walls and throw tinsel and paper all over the place.  I am looking everywhere between here and California.

The hard part is that Ron leaves here the week before I do, and I cannot ask him to fly backwards.

Europe is littered with places that ft the bill.

This dress is a masterpiece I must credit to my incredible team led by our woman’s cutter, Georgina Diaz.

I LOVED this costume. I designed Geillis as if she was always playing dress up, always playing a part. That is why not of her costumes connect as if they belonged to one person. There only theme would be that they make people slightly uncomfortable, but they are not entirely sure why. This costume is her Fiscal’s Wife costume. She comes to the castle looking “respectable”.
I am madly in love with her fichu, which is felted wool.
Again we were able to play with costumes that don’t entirely feel like they are of the time. A bit disconcerting, but certainly within the realm of possibilities.

(Someone out there has a picture of Geillis from the hip up, tweet it to me, if it is any of you, please)

 

Geillis – The Gathering

26

I wish, wish, wish I had pictures of all of our actors in costume. I only have this small screenshot, but it shows a little. Hopefully something bigger will show up at some point.

Anyway, Geillis is wearing an Arisaid, a Scottish woman’s plaid. It is purely an ornamental garment, obviously, as it is made of sheer fabric, and clasped at the shoulder with a Lovers Eye brooch.

I used a man’s leather belt, with a jeweled buckle, at her waist, as both a nod to Highland men, and as a way to provide contrast to her delicate, translucent costume. Feminine, but dangerous.

The painted eye belongs to Charles Stuart.

Sorry the quality of the photos is so bad.
