Love the shoes

By Lillian  
But maybe not all day long!!!
These people that dress for the carnival take so much trouble to design their costumes
everything matched, she is telling a story from a book that also matched

V2 a closer view for you, as I liked the amount of space left above this image to show
off the beautiful window and reflections for the sunshine

Thank you for taking the time to look
Off early today to Paradise Park meeting up with Dave & Tessa (whiterose)
going in with the wolvesGrinGrin

While the costume and shoes are splendid, it is the book that really impresses me.

My goodness they do go all out with their costumes. I wonder if they have more at home or wear the same one year after year? They certainly are beautiful.

You may love the shoes but I can't imagine anyone being able to walk any distance in them.
And shoes, handbag and costume all matching!
Two fine captures of this participant, Lillian, and whilst the closer inspection in V 2 is excellent, V 1 tells the 'fuller story" as suggested.

Two fine images Lillian with some wonderful detail in the costume. Not at all sure about the criss/ cross pattern of the window in the BG. I find it vey confusing and conflicting with the image.
super shots

The colours and costumes get more extravagant and spectacular the longer this series goes on Lillian, this lady is definitely colour co-ordinated and everything matches. That book in v2 is the thing that really catches my eye. I can't imagine you wearing those shoes though, they wouldn't be very practical for walking around Arundel Wetlands or the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Andover!Grin
