Here are some pictures from 2013 events - a mere sampling because I often forget to take pictures or someone else took them and I never got a copy....whoops! That's me to a "T"
One of the Art Deco Society events I went to this year. The other being the Avalon Ball for which I have no pictures of me just others as I spent way too much time dancing to worry about picture taking.
Hahahaha, I just realized that I finished this UFO in December after the computer breakdown so I never blogged about it.
This early 1920s style dress is all about the fabric rather than the dress itself. The dress is just a bunch of rectangles sewn together. I did bead it but you cant tell from the photos. It is easy and fun to wear.
Labyrinth of Jareth: I was lucky enough to go both nights but with the caveat I had to be involved in some set dances.
Re use of an old Halloween costume but without the corset on underneath. The bodice is boned and laces up the back so why bother with another corset underneath? Seriously, that day it was over a 100 degrees and no only was there no air conditioning, some fool had taped shut the windows. I was hot as it was and I would never have made it with a corset on as well. It was lucky I didnt plan to wear the corset, I would have passed out from the heat.
Evil Fairy adaptation of greek goddess Halloween costume....with wings and glitter! This was much cooler to wear though the wings made dancing a challenge which why they were so low. Trying to keep the dang things out of the way plus the wig covered them unless they were low!
November 2012 Victorian Ball
March 2013 Victorian Ball
Not much to say about the ball gowns. Made a long time ago, trade off wearing them. Think it is time for a new ball gown.
