Summer Masquerade July 10, 2010

On July 10, 2010, Piper's Opera House in Virginia City held a Masquerade as a fund raiser. My husband and I made coordinating masks for the event. I wore my Regency gown I made last year. It was very freeing to dance in a dress without a hoop or bustle.

My husband and I

Lady Carolyn fixing her husband - uh, I mean her husband's doublet.

Lady Carolyn (who happens to be my mom) and my step-dad.

A guest

Deep conversation - but I just love the trio in the background

More party-goers. These just happen to be my brother and sister-in-law.


The masks did not stay on some people for very long

Beautiful ladies watching the goings-on down in the lobby

Contemplating...sore feet?

All time periods were welcome at the masquerade

Old-timey gangsta :)

Taking a break to rest our feet

Lovely ladies of the ball
