All I can say is, you guys know my characters way too well. To everyone who commented that Eloise would be into dressing up and Colin wouldn’t? Spot on.
Eloise goes to the Dudley House Halloween party as a random Regency woman, exact character unspecified (I’m guessing Eloise is channeling Jane Wooliston here, but doesn’t want to say it).
Colin, on the other hand? Shows up in black tie. Eloise speculates that he might be James Bond– or, more likely, simply chose the path of least resistance and is just Colin in black tie. She decides not to press the point.
I loved all of the suggestions– as did Eloise. She is now plotting to get Colin into tights for next year. (Next year being, for them, 2005!)
Having gotten all that out of the way, are you ready for the moment we’ve been waiting for?
