Helldorado Diary- Sunday

Helldorado Diary, Sunday. Parade Day and I’m finally going to go to town. The bodice still needs the silk tulle neckline filler and the covered buttons but it looks like I’ll be out on time… 🙂


At last! No dress drama, off to the parade! My usual mirror selfie has great significance because this is the FIRST TIME EVER (since 2003) that I was ready on time to see the Helldorado Parade so that makes this a trophy shot! 🙂


Tombstone’s annual “Homecoming” Old Timey Parade and Festival happens every third Sunday of October. Pioneer Era families return to visit and tourists invade. This is the largest event of the year in this sleepy Old West Paradise.

And here’s proof that we had fun and rode a stagecoach in town. Now I know why Victorians had “travelling clothes”. 🙂


All Aboard!

And here’s a good view of me and my new dress:


And finally, the party’s over…I am wearing something far more comfortable than this! 🙂
