Some women just want to watch the world burn...

I'm sure most people have heard of the Great Chicago Fire, which gutted the city in 1875. This year, Redmoon Theater, a fantastic (literally; their productions always tend to involve fantasy and steampunk themes) troupe, staged a spectacle on the river for the whole city to commemorate the event.
Unfortunately, it didn't go off quite as planned. After two days of steady rain, the soaked wood just didn't want to get going.
The center turret, which you can see here, is about all that ended up burning. There was some kind of hidden shape or message inside the mansion that was supposed to be revealed, but I have no idea what it was supposed to be. After the 30,000 people who had turned out for it started leaving, they cued the fireworks, which I mostly missed because I'd retired to a bar for some beer and fried pickles.
If their spectacle didn't go off as well as one might hope, the spectacle that I put on was fairly successful.
I was shooting for something in the realm of Evil Queen/Dark Fairy, and I think I pretty much hit the mark. These horns are polymer clay, so they're very lightweight, yet sturdy; I just clipped them on to my flower crown and was good to go. 
I'm so in love with this cape. It's velvet, and while the seller said that it's from the 30s, I think it must be from the 50s, given the condition that it's in. It is, literally, perfect. The fabric is smooth, no nibbles from moths or crushing, and there's not a bead missing from the decoration on the collar. 
And I figured my giant nose ring wouldn't hurt matters either.
This is my "I'm evil" face.

On Sunday, some friends with an extra sewing machine and no room for it offered it to Brian and I, so now I can start trying to make my own clothes. I'm so excited! I've wanted one for a long time, and while this guy needs a little love (and a new foot), I'm pleased as punch just to have it.
What'd you guys do this weekend? I hope you had as much fun as I did.
