Of unflattering hairstyles and big butts

We’re back! Jetlagged all to hell but happy to be home. Because my body kicked me awake at 5am today, I started processing photos. I did our victorian photoshoot first…

My dress was finished in 4 days with massive amounts of help from Marcus and Judy. MASSIVE. They did all the pleating on my trim which ended up being around 16 yards of fabric. And Judy did all the detailing on my skirt which includes the maroon panels in front (which I love to death) and all the trimmings on the back and bottom. Thanks soooo much guys!

Things I noticed about this costume:
– Ohmigod could this hair style be any less flattering on me? I’m still trying to figure out how to fix that for next time.

– My butt is really really big in this dress. Ok, I know that’s the point… but still!

– I dunno how you historical costumers do it! I was so sick of having to wrestle 15 yards of fabric 1/2 way through and wearing all that fabric? UGH. It’ll take some slick talking from Judy to get me to do that again.

– I had more complaints but I can’t think of them right now. =D

We dragged dmk26 out with us to take photos. It was just like old times!

Shaddup AJ and let me see the photos.
