In our latest Pinkorama, by Pam and Colleen, we turn to The Mischief of the Mistletoe for a bit of festive cheer at Farley Castle.

Pam and Colleen describe the scene: Starring Jane Austen in maroon, Arabella in brown, Turnip in pink, and Lord Vaughn in black and red with Mary Vaughn in a red and green cape glaring at the happy trio that just got out of the carriage, with a hidden christmas pudding in the trees.

Arabella, Jane Austen, and Turnip confer– Turnip waving his arms about in suitably enthusiastic style:

A close up of our hero and heroine. Could Turnip’s pink coat be any more perfect? Not to mention that brocade waistcoat and expertly constructed cravat….

Lord Vaughn and Mary, meanwhile, look suitably supercilious:

Both are richly arrayed, Vaughn in his signature black (with seasonal red accents) and Mary in a great deal of lace and rubies (because, Mary):

And shall we have another view of the Vaughn sneer?

Fortunately, Arabella has a friend like Jane Austen to bolster her through the Vaughn scorn:

And a Turnip to shield her from unpleasantness (or try to).

Of course, no Mischief of the Mistletoe scene would be complete without… a pudding!

Doesn’t it just make you want to go out and carol?

11

Thank you so much, Pam and Colleen, for this gloriously festive creation!

I am particularly in awe of the costumes. Can’t you just see Turnip preening with satisfaction in that silk coat? And Miss Austen (Miss Peepsten?) looks more like a Regency fashion plate than I would ever have thought possible for a piece of candy. If only I could think of a suitably Turnip-ian way to express my admiration and all that, don’t you know?

    These are all so clever and creative! I wish we had peeps here. I had never heard of them until last year’s pinkarama.
