So an interesting development has come up with the photo that I entered in the contest on Chicstar.com. The contest hasn't ended, but I was contacted by Lisa Lewis (a big Victorian aficionado http://www.victorianalady.com/
I'm a follower of her groups Victorian Lady and Victorian Mourning on Facebook) for permission to have my photo featured in her book on Fashionable Victorians (she said it would be under the neo-Victorian segment of her book). Of course I said that I would be honored to be featured in her book and I would be looking forward to it.
Finally, a non-ugly picture of me will be featured in a book that wasn't a school yearbook.
