I spent today in a little apron peddling baked goods to passersby in the name of “Darcy Society”. Darcy Soc is a society I’m a part of at uni dedicated to period drama, Jane Austen, Colin Firth and the like. Being an enthusiast of all things nineteenth century, I’m naturally quite a fan of Darcy Soc, so I gladly spent four hours baking last night. And all went well – ’twas a success!
Though the society predicates that we’re appreciating pre-twentieth century culture, visitors to the stall nevertheless seemed to think I was dressed in costume to get in the spirit. I think it was the apron that did it. One particular old woman complimented me on my Elizabeth Bennet costume.
