Another picnic! This time in Stockholm

Tweet I have more than once complained about there being no Regency events in my country, Sweden has been severely lacking of anything like that. But lately a few small events has begun to spring up in the Stockholm area, one such being the ball I went to last summer and the LARP they had in the autumn, and a few days after I got back from Italy I got an invitation online to a Regency picnic.

Napoleonic weekend in Lucca 3 – Grand ball

Tweet The grand ball at this event was, very conveniently for me, taking place at the same hotel where I was staying. This meant that we, me and my three room mates, were obviously the last people to arrive at the ball. 😛 You know when you think you have all the time in the world to get ready, you just need to get into a dress, do your hair and you’re more or less ready. And since it would literally only take us seconds to get where we needed to go we were in no hurry. So yes, we … Continue reading
