uh oh, i think i've been caught in a web of obsession

again.

so halloween and the new moon premier have been sneaking up on me. i haven't done a lick of planning. weird for me since i usually start planning and sewing in july. i felt so burned after last year's over-planned, under-attended debacle.
never fear, i've been talked into it by me best mate, shannon. apparently our twilight group is dressing as vampires through the ages. pick an iconic (or less than traditional) vampire style and go with it. i usually make my costumes from scratch, but this year i think i'm going to take the $$ and buy the perfect outfit.
if you don't sew, you might not realize how expensive it is to actually make something. and even then, my workmanship for costumes is good for costume wear only. it may be a little tight, or a tad uncomfortable. so i want to buy something beautiful and comfortable. preferably with a crinoline petticoat.
i'm going with victorian vampire. midge [whose new name is zoey] guessed before i could even tell her. so here it is...

elizabeth bought fangs for the three of us and i'll be ordering amber colored contacts for new moon. which reminds me, i need to get new glasses.

so what do you think?

I love the dress, and I think our vampire party is going to be beyond absolutely and totally brilliant. I also think we need to start putting some serious thought to the planning asap...

I so wish I could come to your vampire party! I don't think I live very close to you though, you live on the east coast? I'm in the west. Post lots of pictures!
