The Jane Austen Ball

Saturday held several events, including another writing talk, a game of he said/she said, a trip to the thrift stores in town, and a weapons demonstration.

But without a doubt, the best part of the day was the Regency Ball we held that evening. Everyone dressed up in period appropriate clothing, and we had live music and lovely food. Everyone picked an Austen Character to represent, and we had a bit of in character dialog as well... though the best bit came after the dancing was over and we played a game of Mafia in character!


So I present another batch of pictures...
