I took (well kept) 651 pics this year. Whew. What kills me is how many pics of costumes around me I didn't get. I was looking through the pics of others this morning going, oh my gosh she was sitting right next to me and I didn't take any pics of her frock! Opps! I think there was a little "overwhelmed with the pretties" going on.
Anyway I've combed them down to my favorite 400 to post. Well some of my favorites I can't post because I've been threatened with death if I do. All I have to say is: BROWNIES! *hee hee* Jenny-Rose's CC picsedited to add:
Oh and feel free to snag any CC pic you want for whatever use, credit not neccessary. If you need a hi-rez version of something just let me know!
My CC '08 line up!
Black Striped Jacket, AKA the *secret* project - I couldn't be more pleased with the way it came out. Originally I was bummed I didn't have time for a matching Gainsbourgh hat but I think I like the mini tricorn better. It was certainly fun to wear and I giggle inside at the fact it doesn't match. :> The posts on this project
are now unlocked (and will be on my website soon) if you want to see how I did it.
Sparkle Regency - Otherwise known as the under dress to my Bee Robe
. I adore this dress and it was a fun excuse to wear it again!
Cross-over Regency - Again I couldn't be more pleased with this outfit. It was comfy and pretty - I didn't really want to take it off! The velvet trim was just the right touch, if I do say so myself. And wow a Regency dress I can get into all by myself, how cool is that?!!
And my new hat! Yes, I splurged on one of Mela's creations. The price really wasn't that bad so it was my retail therapy for not getting into her class and for the bonnet disaster I had the week before CC. Another thing I didn't want to take off!
Pearl Dress - I wasn’t 100% pleased with this in the end but over the weekend I figured out how to tweak it so I will be. Having said that it was great fun to wear and I certainty felt like a pretty, pretty princess in it! I think I'm most proud of having actually finished it on time, *almost* by myself (thanks Mommy & Linda!) and not giving up on it despite the physical and deadline challenges I had. I did approx 75 of the 120 total man-hours of embellishment on the gown in 4 weeks. I still don't know how I did that! My favorite compliment of the gala was "that is koshka_the_cat
level sickness". *LOL*
Coaching Day Outfit - Another fun outfit I was excited to get to wear again. Of course I had to wear my warmest outfit on the hottest day but the reaction to it (especially to Fred) was well worth it. I love how the outfit went with my new hat as well!
Overall this is my favorite CC wardrobe. Everything was lovely, comfy (except for the hot thing) and were things I was very proud to say I'd made. It doesn't get any better than that. :>
