|An image of Horatio Hornblower and his men from the A&E series Horatio Hornblower|
I have a fascination with the sea and sailing, particularly British maritime history, mainly due to the fact that when I was growing up my family fell in love with the A&E series, Horatio Hornblower. I recently found the series on DVD and have been watching the episodes throughout the week. They are just as good as they were 14, 15 years ago (I can't believe that is when we first watched that series, but it was somewhere in the mid, late nineties...*sigh*), which is saying something for the quality of the series. Master and Commander may also be one of my favorite movies.
So today, I admittedly went a little costumey with this outfit. Channeled my nautical-feeling a little bit too much, one could say. But I'm ok with that. I had fun with it and felt like I was ready to climb the rigging at the word of the captain. Just as soon as I got over my fear of heights of course.
