Whine, Whine, Whine! LOL
This is me and my manservant/husband. My dress without the petticoat underneath. It looks so much better with the petticoat (by the way, I made that dress & my husband's shirt myself), my face looks so "moon faced" (aka: round/fat) here, a side effect of large doses of Prednisone. 24 hours after this picture was taken, I'd be flat on my back in bed with giant blisters all over my shoulders (the one place I forgot to put sunscreen and wasn't covered up). The sun caused a flare which went wildly systemic and I was down for about 3 weeks to a month...just from the darn sun...for gosh sakes, I live in California! I can't get away from the sun. The Faire was fun. I haven't been since, I'm too scared to go. My dress is somewhat on display on a dressmakers figure (a mannequin who's dimensions you can change). I think next to my wedding dress, I loved wearing this dress second, but with the huge petticoat to make the skirt fill out like a true Princess's should.
