TBT: Frock Flickers Go Little Women

Way back in May, 2007, your podcasters went Little Women. Specifically, Kendra organized a Little Women picnic for the Greater Bay Area Costumers Guild. We went to Shinn House, an 1876 house in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we picnicked, toured the house, and played games on the lawn… including Blindman’s Bluff, which is really exhausting!

Listeners of our recent podcast about the 1994 movie Little Women may remember us discussing event, specifically Sarah (who went as Amy) with a clothespin on her nose. Well, I have photographic evidence!

Costume-wise, we were more inspired by the book than the movie.
