Jack, Queen, King and Ace of Spades

Almost 2 years ago, I was part of a team project for which many girls had to build costumes and provide pictures for a special card deck. Spades, Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds and Jokers… and I got the Spades. :D Unfortunately, the project never came to an end, but I still had these breathtaking pics that I finally decided to unveil for Halloween 2019. My Joan of Arc inspired Jack/Knight, my dangerous Queen of Spades with her Elizabeth I of England’s ruff collar, my outstanding King with his Henri VIII inspired coat and my one of a kind Ace… There’s nothing historically accurate in there, of course. Each costume is just a fanciful and contemporary version loosely inspired by a historical figure, but it was an interesting and challenging research.
