Mini-masque: A scaled down version of the entertainment which would have graced such a seasonal feast.
Step One: Make a masquing costume - this can be a historical fantasy, mythological or allegorical character - and is your chance to perchance use fabric/materials you love but don't match your usual persona. The costume can be in place of White Court garb or something you slip over or change into - your choice. Have fun!
