It will be fun, I have several months to think about it. I may want to go as the Empress Carlota, that would be fun. I love this dress and it's my favorite time period.
But, that is a little bizarre since the revolution was against them...there are other options.
I did threaten to make her a rumbera or bata Cubana. Mostly because I really love all the ruffles and I think she could pull it off. Maybe for Carnival? Wouldn't that be fun?
I like the China Poblana a lot and it can be a good basis for an Adelita costume. The Adelitas were the camp followers of the revolution.
Regardless, it will be fun to attend a costume party. It will be great to see what everyone comes up with.
Sshhush though, I haven't told Husband yet...
