For Halloween I was a grand duchess and wore awesome gloves! I also had a great tiara (which is still sitting on my bookcase). Dressing like OTMA is so much fun!

 :o I have never seen that big picture of Olga in uniform before. It is absolutely wonderful. Has one of the  geniuses on this board already colored it (like Maria's)? This almost computer illiterate board member would really appreciate if one of you guys colored and posted it.

Margarita, which GD were you? I was Olga two years ago for Halloween. My grandma made my costume after I showed her some pics of Olga.

Tatiana. I look like her. I realize it's historically innacurate though to have a tiara, but whatever.

I was amazed when I saw Olga and Tatiana's Regimental Uniforms at the Newark exhibit of "At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family." I tried to look for a picture of their uniforms today. Does anybody have one? I swear, I just looked through the entire Hermitage Museum website and couldn't find one!

The light blue one with the red skirt was Olga's. The navy uniform with yellow was Tatiana's. I should note, too, that the hats pictured with the uniforms weren't used on the Grand Duchesses. They had different hats as you can see on the other pics.
