The Man in The Iron Mask

With Autumn, the  celebrations for the Man in The Iron Mask are back And I was ready to enjoy the days!
Mild temperatures allowed to still wear  t-shirts.

On Sunday I found a good place in the square to see the entrance of the main character. 
(According to the tradition he was Luis XIV secret twin who had been prisoned in Savoy )

Well, as I said I was wearing a t-shirt, but  my outfit needed something sparkling for the occasion
( hence, I matched the top to a midi skirt with decorations )

After all, there were the most beautiful dames in their gorgeous period costumes around!!

I made a pair of earrings with beads in a pale shade of light blue and filigrane 

Which would have been nice with one of  these berets and the lady's costume! 

I was wearing a very festive pair of shoes
( they are from soft velvet for extra comfort )

The show went on with extra  characters  telling the whole story for two days

In the afternoon I put on a jacket with funny  (fake) hairy pockets
Which probably I already posted somewhere last year

I wanted to stay until late ( when the release of the mysterious prisoner was scheduled )
and it was becoming chilly

The story inspired the movie The Man in the Iron Mask  a 1998 American action drama film directed, produced, and written by Randall Wallace, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio .

At the end of the day I said  bye bye to the Three  Musketeers ...  until next year!
