I was making a dress for this event (and it is still going to be a shockingly cool dress, I promise... I really will finish it at some point!), but then I bought a dress, so I wore that instead. It is meant to be a 1908 dress, and it is lovely. The beads are especially neat and sparkly, and it has these delightfully ridiculous wing-like sleeve things. A very dramatic and beautiful dress, which inspired me to stand in front of the electric fans on the floor so that my drippy wings floated. I felt very ancient-Greek-as-interpreted-by-Ragtime-people. I am very silly. Julia's silly too - that's why our bears danced together for the Teddy Bear's Picnic.
