Okay, so I haven't posted in a while

Purely because a lot has been going on. I'm going to make two posts today, one about the wedding and one about the status of the Alice Costume.

This one is for the costume.

So my last post was about how the screen had come out for the screen printing and how pretty a shiny it was. Well, as pretty as it was, it turned out horribly. And ended in Kalioseano having to buy new fabric for the dress and starting over again. She's been a wonderfully good sport about everything...

But, she did it, she remade the dress, without the print and the jacket. Almost everything is done except for button holes!

Kalioseano sent me a new message!

She just got her hands on the screen and I wanted to share the pictures she sent me.


So I made a pretty sign for the wedding and wanted to share it::

I went dress shopping the other day...

For THE dress and was intending only to get ideas so that my mom and I could make it, but I ended up buying one. I really wasn't expecting this. But it would cost us more to make this dress than what we could buy it for so, we went with it. I'll leave a comment on how much it cost, but I want to shock you, because to me, it looks so much more expensive.

Unfortunately you cannot see the flower details around the waist, at least not enough to do it justice, but you can get an idea. Please excuse the funny face I am making as my mom didn't tell me she was going to take a picture. And please also excuse my weight. I am in the process of losing weight. I just got my membership to the Y. Yay!

So I've been keeping a running tally of

All of my ideas for the wedding, I'd like to post them here, so other people can give their own opinions or even give me new ideas! If the ideas have a * in front of them, I've already started or finished this idea.

Here is where I am getting married::
The ceremony will be held in the garden and the reception will be held inside the 19th century mansion.

-Lawn flamingos on the front lawn.
*Signs with Alice quotes on them, guiding guest to the ceremony area (which is kind of hidden)
-A vintage mirror on the door of the mansion with a small sign that says "Step Through the Looking Glass"
*A vintage, non-traditional teapot on every table.
-Top hats, each decorated with a different ribbon but all having the same sale tag on them, to be given out as favors at the beginning of the reception and everyone encouraged to wear them.
-Top hats full of flower petals and random items as decoration around the mansion.
-My fiance is going to wear a tailcoat with a high vest and an interesting tie, as well as his own top hat.
*Mad Hatter cake that is a lopsided three layer cake, with sugar teapots and teacups under each layer.
*A tea party menu with scones, tea sandwiches, fruit, of course tea, two types of beer, pink champagne, and apple-tinis (one of my favorite drinks and the first one my Fiance had when he was legal).

And just to note, I'm not going with the usual Red, Black, and White Alice wedding, my colors are::

A soft pink,
A soft blue, & A soft green.

Thanks so much for reading guys, over 800 views!

New Laptop..

I finally got a new one! It's an HP and very cute and wonderful...

In other news, I have spoke before about how I am having an Alice In Wonderland Tea Party Wedding, and not really elaborated before. I have also decided to post stuff about that as well, considering many of you may find my ideas interesting...

The Sketch for the Jacket!

A big thanks to kalioseano.

You should note, however, that her sketch is missing a button. We discussed it, but I'm not going to make her re-do her sketch for it. So, if using this to make your own reproductions or to comission someone else... THERE ARE THREE BUTTONS.

I am having a bit of...

Vertigo today. Compound that with joint aches and I'm just not feeling very well. So you'll have to excuse my short post, as I have five Etsy items to share with you, but at the risk of passing out in my computer chair, I'm only going to share two today.

The first one is actually the most expensive one, but I'm sure it would totally be worth the price. It's a Mad tea Party Chandelier. It is completely handmade and absolutely gorgeous. However, the nasty little thing about it is the price tag. At $425.00, it is way too expensive for my taste. But maybe not for yours.

If you're like me, and low on funds to fully worship your obessions, then maybe you could settle for just the lamp version? Which costs a mere $125.00.

You can find both in whimsicalcollections's shop.

Now, my next item has to be one of the cutest, non-practical items I have ever seen. I would love to purchase these cute little finger puppets, but my fiance might take me to the crazy house for talking to them. But imagine! You could make your own Alice Puppet Pals video on youtube! And at only $23.00 you're not spending a fortune if your fiance throws them out...

You can find them in WeeKnit's shop.

Okay guys, back to the couch with me. I miss my sh*##y laptop.

A bit of bad news...

My laptop has stopped working. It's a year and a half old Dell, and for some stupid reason, made out of cheap plastic. Well, needless to say, I feel stupid. I'm looking into buying a Gateway, but it will be a few weeks before this purchase is possible. Meantime, I will be using my fiance's old desktop. So I will not be on as often as I was...

Hopefully I will get that etsy post up tomorrow though.
