But, if a vacation isn't in the cards, you can just put on an empire waist dress and pretend. That's what happened to Redditor ByTingo. Her boyfriend and family surprised her with a Pride and Prejudice themed engagement.
ByTingo came home and found her sister dressed in Regency attire and proclaiming that Mr. Bingley had returned to Netherfield. Another sister made ByTingo change into an appropriate dress (the mother made five Regency style dresses over two weeks) and ByTingo was handed a script. She was Lizzie Bennet. Family members and her boyfriend filled out other roles (the boyfriend was of course Mr. Darcy) and went through scenes from the book for about half an hour. The only word for this is charming.
