Pierrefonds today  
Lovely day at Pierrefonds today, although we didn't see any filming as they were in the great hall all day shooting a big crowd/celebration thingy. There was some popping in and out however so there are some pics to follow if I can make the frankly abysmal wifi upload them! Gwen has a new dress, and there's a small guest star spoiler which is generally known anyway, I think that's all I'll give away!





There was a lot of walking today - although probably emoting inside - we could hear Geoffrey of Monmouth expounding at one point...

A gratuitous Bradley's arse shot :)

Colin took a 45 minute break up on the balcony at one point

He was mostly reading his script, but sometimes being sociable

Contemplating, thinky, making notes, Colin!

Drinking, travel mug, soy milk latte? Colin

Proper break, reading actual book now Colin

Geoffrey! (I mean Michael)

Distinguished Geoffrey!

All the cast on the way in!

I don't have a good photo of Katie, because she stopped to say hi, and I couldn't keep snapping...

Bradley! Reading! He can't claim that he never reads any more!

Tony!

Waving his belt around!

Stopping to chat - he's so lovely!

Guest star Georgia May King and Tony

Again

Tony with small child - he's a sucker for the kiddies!

Colin - all of him, not just on the balcony!

So lovely

My only decent shot of Bradley

Angel's new dress

I'm not sure about the color of Gwen's dress but at least it's laced up the front so she wouldn't need a maid to get into it.

Great pictures. Love the one of Colin contemplating.

How are the crowds? Lots of people or not?

O.o; Huh? There's people discussing the authenticity of Gwen's dresses and... WHERE? I want to see this! *laughs!*

I don't mean to jump on you and go "RAWWR!!" b-but I am very interested in this kind of discussion. (Not that I think Gwen's dresses are authentic, but I like to hear what people are saying.)

I have a whole wardrobe full of dresses that lace up in the back - not to mention the blouses that go underneath - and I don't need a maid to help me put them on. It's tricky, but not impossible. The lacing is actually quite easy, it's the waist ties that are frustrating.

I haven't been discussing it online. I belong to a costuming group and we were discussing Gwen's dresses, with her side-lacings. No, they aren't authentic at all, even if you take Mallory into account for season 2-3. Heck, they were more authentic in season 1 for Gwen and even then... it was only okay.

Can you lace up the dresses with heavy boning in them like Gwen has? I've never been able to do that with my heavily-boned back-lacing ones, not without a lot of pain.

I know what you mean, I hated all her season 2 costumes because they look like she's running around in her underwear (chemise) with a corset thrown on top, and that jars badly to me. And I don't think I'm even that much of a costume nazi!

Yeah, I'm not fond of Gwen's new outfits only because it's not even close to appropriate. I mean in S1 Morgana said that she'd scrubbed floors and even in S2 Hengist said she had the hands of a servant. But not with those new outfits.
