One of my latest facemasks while visiting a 15th C castle in Slovenia


This one is another basic black facemask with a bit of purply magentaish lace edging across the front.  I'm going to make another one with a teal veil next.  I took the picture in the knight's chambers at the Prejama Castle in Slovenia.  The castle itself is pretty amazing.  It's built right into the mountain in front of a large cave system.

You can get into a few of the caverns within the castle.  The audio guide for the castle is next to useless.  Somehow, the guide was insistent that the castle was drafty and cold.  Sorry, but no.  They restored it pretty well and you can see the lovely limewash on the walls that would have prevented most drafts.  That plus all the fireplaces?  It would have been the place to be in the winter.  In the summer, it does stay cool but that's because of the proper air circulation from the river below the castle.
