A few words on reenacting from Ariel, the reenactor...
Anyone who’s ever donned formal wear will attest that it’s the undergarments that make a good outfit look great. Some wear corsets, special bras, or the all-important Spandex.
I wear ace bandages.
Not to help a dress fit properly, but because I have mastered every odd way to injure oneself. In the past month I’ve twisted my ankle, sprained my wrist, and scraped/bruised my inner thigh (you have no idea how hard that is to bandage). All for the sake of Victorian Christmas cheer. Ever wonder what lets a woman smile through all that? The fact that you don’t know I’m wearing an ace bandage under my thigh highs.
And nothing completes an outfit like a smile.
