As part of her “Go Gothic!” tribute to Northanger Abbey, my friend Laurel Ann invited me to do a light look at the costuming in the 1986 and 2007 television adaptations of the novel.
Here it is!
Anyway, I hope people enjoy it.
The big news of the moment: I’m writing an article on fashion in the Northanger Abbey adaptations for my friend Laurel Ann’s “Go Gothic” festival at Austenprose Blog. It’s set to publish on October 15. If you’re a fan of Jane Austen, you’ll really enjoy her blog!
Now for the boring stuff:
Kali enjoys simplifying her internet life. Kali also has trouble letting go of past projects that have outstripped their usefulness. This means that Kali has trouble making decisions as to what to update and what to delete.
I’m in the process of redesigning and otherwise generally cleaning up Better Haunts & Graveyards. The current design is something like six years old, and it looks it. Once that’s out of the way, Halloween-tree.com and Livadia.org are going to have their days of reckoning.
Right now, I’m thinking I’ll just merge the Halloween site with Better Haunts; there isn’t enough left to justify its continued independent existence. As for the Romanov site, I’m torn. On one hand, it looks old and we just don’t have the time or interest to update it anymore. Further, all it seems to do in its current limbo state is invite image-ganking bandwidth thieves and freaky Russian spam. On the other hand, it would sincerely suck to see all of our hard work on the scrapbooks and such go down the crapper. As usual, I’m the queen of indecision.
In other news, Strawberry Canyon and Desire are closing up shop. The current plan per Marsha and myself is to open up a new, joint writing workshop with no sim and a broader focus. I think most of us were bored with the figure skating premise.
When will it debut? Not a clue. Probably sometime before Christmas.
…to my new(ish) WordPress blog experiment. While it’s a PITA to template and tends to clunkiness, it may prove to be a good solution to my update dilemma; I want an easy way to post announcements and share minor updates and random one-off ideas without having to create whole new, separate sections or rework old ones. So, I’m giving it a whirl. If I like it, I’ll replace the main site with this thing (The Emma Adaptations Pages and my other semi-independent projects will retain their unique layouts).
Keep watching for changes and updates…
