Julie here with the CSFF Blog Tour, writing about Storm Siren by Mary Weber (Facebook).
Other guests dress as "rabid ladybugs," bears, sin-eaters, ferns, and mermaids. Why Nym gets away with wearing what seem by comparison to be simple gowns, I'm not sure, but that's one of the few bits of good fortune she has with Adora. Sadly, Weber's Pinterest doesn't have any images of inspirations for Adora's gowns...but given how ridiculous they sound, maybe that's for the best.
As to the inspiration for the party, Love is not a Triangle has a good interview with Mary Weber that has a couple real costume pictures, and a little info on Book 2. (I was particularly heartened to know that one of Weber's own daughters hated the ending, as I did too.)
Here are the other participants on the tour!
