For those of you who couldn’t make RWA conference, the Dress For Historical Success workshop was, well, as success. We had a full room despite going up at 8:30am on the last day of conference.
Here’s my best shot:
The judges say:
Nigel Barker: “I love the pose. You evoked the sense of confidence and grace of the Tang Dynasty, but I’m not in love with the face.”
Miss Jay: “Girl, you are closing your eyes again. Get some sleep or something and bring it.”
Jeannie: “But I was up late last night at the Harlequin party. There was a DJ and pink drinks with orchids in them–”
Miss Jay: *rolls eyes* “Excuses, excuses…”
Tyra: “The women of the Tang Dynasty were FIERCE. I see a pretty picture here, but I’m not seeing fierce.”
The guest judge always gets to announce the winner. While the other judges are deliberating, check out the photos and write-up on Gretchen Jones’ blog on the Dress for Historical Success workshop.
Who will be America’s Next Top Historical Model this year? You decide!

Hi – Just popping by after Judith James’ guest post yesterday at the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood. I’m in the same RWA chapter as Bev Pettersen.
Your new release looks wonderfully not-like-the-others! Congrats!

Dara – It was fun! But of course it’s the one day I don’t have my camera. I had to grab all my pics from someone else who was using a phone. Maybe one day you can dress up in a kimono and I’ll be in my hanfu!
Hi Julia! Good to “meet” you.
