Several of you have asked the question, so I figured I should finally answer it. The answer is, "No."
More specifically: "No, I have never worn a doublet."
And a follow up statement: "And no, I'm not really sure what a doublet is."
But the closest I have ever come to wearing a doublet, was dressing up for Brandon Mull's Beyonder's launch party last year.
Here is the only pic I could find.
I know the guy in the middle isn't Brandon Mull. It's James Dashner (and maybe Jessica Day George in the background). He was also part of the show, but he didn't have to wear a costume . . . unfair.
As a thank you for helping out that night, Brandon gave shelly and I a signed copy of Beyonders. Because of the hero theme to the book he wrote "you're my heroes" on the inside. My favorite part of the night though, was when I got that book back from my daughter who had asked if she could carry it around for a while. She took the liberty of responding to Brandon's dedication (Check the seven-year-old's writing in green):
Anyway, for those of you interested and living in Utah (or want to travel to Utah) Brandon is throwing another huge free party when his next book comes out (March 13 at Cottonwood high). Yes, Shelly and I will be performing. The wardrobe is undetermined at this point. I'm personally hoping we'll go back to jeans and a t-shirt. And Brandon was kind enough to give us an ARC of the next Beyonders. Shelly's finished it and will review it tomorrow.
