so. many. beautiful. peeps. my head is still spinning from the party. i have limited words but overflowing cups, of both happiness and rye whiskey...
kissing at prom!!!! EEEEK! where the hell was the chaperone?! don't sleep on that polyester three piece tigress' beau donned. and how about vintage clad ruth's steve... the only guest to walk away from the booze long enough to make a yellow corsage. kelsey doesn't dance, apparently, but she does wear technicolor tulle.
i adore that shot of KC and amity in the middle! KC finished her dress minutes before her entrance, and amity dyed her houndstooth to a shocking pink. they are flanked by angela (self drafted lace dress), latrice (HAWT maxi!) and cath (check out that smocking). i must have had booze on my mind when i put these together, as the bread in this photo sandwich brought me alcohol of three kinds. YOU KNOW ME SO WELL.
and that lovely gal in white, the other KC, brought me a ring sized pincushion, you're gonna die when i show you! (oh, yes, kelsey does dance, but maybe only with the gals of make shop live). nhi sported a gorgeous lacy green and was quite helpful in tiara placement.
the lovely ladies of Sew LA. devon, christine (in another perfect peony), shaerie, and haley. you freaking goddesses. the brat in the middle is wearing a christine haynes pattern, dontcha know...
we were able to coax the gods of the party into a little posing.
my forever prom king, who, when asked should we vote for prom queen? immediately said NO. EVERYONE should be prom queen. and so it was decided. multicolored tiaras for everyone. i'll say it again. What. A. MAN.
sandra & jill, in white, red and black, rocked the hell out of those glow stick necklaces. rachel, in the black dress avec white collar, told me her gown was made out of a bomber jacket. WHAT?!
princess leah in the house, in three kinds of green silk!
see that gorgeous gal clad in silk, holding a flame waaaaay too close to my polyester? that's the heavenly haley. not only did she make her dress... she made the spiked sherbet punch as well. and she haz some sort of magical powers, as she surprised me with the most perfect oona sized birthday cake in the world: pink snow ball.
miss make and her beau naturally took the best prom pictures, and were immediately crowned the most bitchy popular couple of the night. nothing could be further from the truth. THEY WERE SO UNPOPULAR. i still ate all her m&m chip cookies, though.
what's that? you came to the party virtually and didn't get a prom picture? way? NO way! you totally did!
never in my wildest dreams would i have imagined inventing a birthday prom and spending the evening with a room full of virtual strangers... and adoring every minute of it. it bears repeating: thank you again, and again.
