    [Marie Antoinette’s Harp](http://leahmariebrownhistoricals.blogspot.com/2011/05/marie-antoinettes-harp.html)

    I have to be in costume for our concert on Sunday because the theme is Halloween, so I decided to be Marie because I have a fancy formal that looks like the mid-1700s. She did play the harp (see photo) and made it popular in France….before she lost her head. At first, I was going to be an angel, but that seemed Christmassy….not Halloweeny. The piece is Danse Macabre. Anyone else playing in costume for Halloween?

    I do at least half my performances in a costume, but I work the Ren faire circuit. It’s tricky designing Renaissance style gowns that give me the range of motion I need in my shoulders.

    A friend made a Medieval looking gown for me a few years ago. I’ve worn it for several Halloween themed concerts. If any asks, I say I’m the queen of the pedals!
