Fan Mariaid's Thornton Wedding:
For those of us who find it impossible to go half way around the world for RA's appearance at the Cremorne, NSW Hayden Orpheum(restored art-deco theater) here's an idea of what it might look like. Figure is deliberately out of proportion, because Richard is *larger than life*(lame excuse;)

daVinci's Demons is a joint effort by US Starz tv channel and the BBC. Here's an interview with the award winning costume designer. Excerpt:
Period dress does seem to be very much your thing…I think it’s because unravelling the past is such fun really. The things that get me going are the bizarre elements. It’s definitely not surface decoration - that comes later. It’s structure. If I wasn’t a costume designer, I think I would have been a structural engineer who builds bridges. I’m really into engineering and how these shapes are built. What I get excited about is the kind of analysing of shape and form and how that functions within the society you’re creating. That’s why I like period stuff. I read avidly and I love history. It’s a life-long interest really, the past.http://www.guisemagazine.com/behind-the-seams/annie-symons-living-the-dream/
