Dover Castle and my new dress!

Very fun event! Was (un?)fortunate to have been assigned the role of Jane Seymour for the weekend, with Annis as Mary Zouche and Vicky as her Queenliness! So - some pictures :D some are mine, some are Annis's. http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m152/lidimy/Costuming/5028_111544941135_691761135_33169...
