Pretty Sparkly

My skating dress is finished!

It's gorgeous. It turned out better than I hoped it would.

I took a few half-assed pictures so ya'll could see.

These are the Swarovski crystals I decided to rhinestone the dress with. They're obscenely expensive, but completely worth it. The quality compared to some plastic rhinestone you'd get at the craft store is incomparable.

Here's the first side that Meg stoned. Meg tends to be a little obsessive when it comes to her crafts so, once she started on the dress, there was no stopping her. I didn't glue on one rhinestone; I didn't mind.

The front of the finished product.

Me wearing the finished product, in the dirty bathroom mirror.

I'm pleased that I decided to have some guts and rhinestone at the waist. I don't think it calls too much attention to that region.

Side view.

Fun, right?

I love projects that turn out well.

I give it a 6.0. Or is that old-school scoring now?
