So, I'm getting married.
Yep. I'm committing to one person for the rest of my life. No one else. Just one guy. Until we are both old and wrinkly, smell bad and have crud at the corners of our mouths.
Its true love.
Really, he's great! He puts up with my crazy costumes and has even been my accessory at several events. He insists more and more that if I'm making my outfits from scratch, he wants costumes for himself made from scratch, too. So needy! Thus my usual "leave it to the last minute" habit must be broken because I'm making 2 ensembles and one that can not just use safety pins as closures (he give me a dubious look and I go back to put in a drawstring, snap or elastic: this man does not trust safety pins for a pant fly). On the plus side, I am gaining so much more experience making men's clothes that I have started to get commissions for them! Woot woot!
But enough about him.
I'm getting married.
And I, of course, want to make my own wedding dress.
And I of course want to have 2 dresses (a red one to wear during the reception, 'cuz I'm half Chinese and its a tradition to wear red).
And I want a lace bolero with the white wedding dress.
And I want a velvet caplet for the red dress.
And I want to paint and bedazzle my shoes to match a la American Duchess.
So, when do I have time for this? I MAKE time. Really. I have a time machine. It makes time.
Thus this is the start of the blogging about making my wedding dresses and accessories.
