Last week I collected my remodeled alien djinn wedding dress. It's the same dress as last year, with $450 worth of renovations!
Good grief! How could it possibly be worth that. I could get married for less!!! I could probably stage an alien royal wedding for that amount.
Actually, I probably couldn't, because I probably couldn't find a cover model that cheap to play the part of the seven-foot tall alien hunk, and if I could... I wouldn't have the budget to dress him.
So what on Earth did I have done?
A better ruff. It looks like I've got a huge, mutant butterfly on the back of my neck.
I've got a bunch of Martha Stewart Christmas decoration flowers (bought at 70% off, right after Christmas) sewn onto it.
My waistline got dropped (lower, not altogether!) and my bust got trimmed (no thanks to the Victoria's Secret rubber bra, which is a not-altogether docile underpinning of the costume).
I've new tulle because the hoop was a liability, and flounces and furbelows and patriotic bunting, and new over sleeves.
And, I'm portraying my most recent Imperial bride, the Princess Martia-Djulia (Marsha-Julia) who is totally frivolous. The only thing I probably won't do to complete the illusion is dye my hair platinum blonde!
