"Courage! I have shown it for years; think you I shall lose it at the moment when my sufferings are to end? " ...attributed to Marie moments before her death by the guillotine.
I was Marie Antoinette for Halloween last year- made the whole costume myself (including the shoes). I get really into the holiday. I should rummage around and find the old pics. I have been everything from a satyr to a roller derby queen to a broken record (no pics of that one unfortunately)...hmmm have to look around for those. As for Marie, I doubt she spent much time basking in the outdoors with the powder wig and all.
