I'm reduced to "Wow!!!"

"Wow" isn't even enough. This must be the apotheosis of the stiltwalker! Suddenly less proud of my own Halloween and festival inventiveness....

These costumes are so beautiful!

If you like good costumes, be sure to check out Daughters of Elvin, a medieval music and dance troupe run by my friend and neighbor Katy Marchant. Most of the masks and costumes are designed by Katy, but they also have a few made by Wendy Froud and a fantastic bird mask made by Alan Lee. There are pictures (and music) on the Daughters of Elvin MySpace page:

Wow, those costumes are wonderful! Magical! A lot of love and creativity defintely went into those.

Wonderful pictures! Speaking of Todd and the Daughters of Elvin, I have written a feature about the latter for the current summer issue of Faerie Magazine, and am in the process of writing another feature about puppeteer and performance artist William Todd-Jones for the fall issue. Faerie Magazine can be purchased at Barnes and Noble and at Borders bookstores. In those articles readers will be able to see more images of costumes created by Katy Marchant and Wendy Froud.
