last nite was houston's 11th annual gothic beauty pageant. my friend and i spent a week sewing, hot gluing and laughing our asses off.
i created a dress from a burda pattern with alexander henry's lorenza print. i also flat lined it in skully print cotton so it's reversible.
i bought a $3 straw hat from a thrift store and added fabric, flowers, tulle, faux pearls, fake diamonds, mini xmas ornaments, ribbons, lace, rhinestones, butterflies and feathers.
then i made a fox stole out of faux fur and added the head and legs out of felt.
i made a button-on silk daisy with ribbons and tulle, but i got drunk and lost it in the club. :/

since everybody but my friends takes the pageant seriously, we thought we were going to be insta-hated when we walked in.
we were insta-loved. i made so many fans and had so many people dance with me and ask to take a pix with me.
