This weekend, I went to the The Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2011, held in San Francisco's Regency Ballroom (built 1909) on January 21 and 22, celebrating macabre mid-century storybook illustrator Edward Gorey, as well as Edwardian, Victorian, and Roaring Twenties fashion.

Friday's event featured a midway of Victorian carnival games. They even had a hand-made Ferris wheel, but we decided to leave the high-flying acts to all the circus performers of the evening, and stick to more grounded games like skee ball, ring toss, and the shooting gallery.

    I'm so envious, I would love to go to all the great events out there. Rarely does Minnesota offer great events like that. Thanks for sharing. What did you wear?

    Unfortunately, I didn't have a fabulous Edwardian gown in my closet, so I put on a gothy black dress and stripey tights and went as one of the "Gashlycrumb Tinies."

    That's me on the right:

    You look great, Hot! I would have struggled to choose which way to go I think you got it right.
