The holy grail!

Like i said, updates are going to be sporraddic and probably off-the-wall... (considering this is more a craft-blog anymore than my wedding-blog... but you'll all live i'm sure, haha.) Anyways, i'm SUPER EXCITED!!! (insert high-pitched ecstatic fangirl squeal here) because i've found... THE Dress!

Yes, the dress that makes you go "ZOMG!" the dress that makes you tear up when you look at it... the dress that most little girls rip out of their big sister's bridal magazines and tape to the insides of their binders to dream about for years to come... (well, except i've never done any of that... i just scour the interwebz for days.... okay maybe months.)

Since we decided on a Halloween Wedding, (black, white, green, red, etc. etc. etc.... classy but spooky and all that creepy wonderful stuff) I decided -- on a whim -- to google "black wedding dress" and took my chances with it's iffy image search.

The angels began to sing!

On the very first page, i found it. It was a tiny image, but it was there.... glowing like a beacon in the night!!! (okay, yeah i know... google images are now ALL on a front page... but that's besides the point. XD) Jim found it at the same time as me and went "oooh... pretty...." so i right-clicked and put "open in new tab" to forget about it until later. about 400 black/black & white dresses later, i came back to it. I don't remember the exact website i first found it on, but nevertheless, it was beautiful....

So what dress have i fallen head over heels for??? 

Maggie Sottero's "Vincenza" -- (and it comes in a size 28!) 

(and the beautiful back) 
It comes in "Diamond White", "White", "Diamond White/Oyster", "Diamond White/Ruby", and of course, "Diamond White/Black" 


There's not a single thing i don't like about this dress! It has the black, the embroidery, no bling, the train, the corset back, sweetheart neck, the perfect amount of ballgown-meets- a-line, everything! :-D

Now all i need is $1,300 dollars.... *pout* but i've got a little under 2 years to save up damn it! that dress will be mine! lol. 

Pairing this up with accessories however, is going to be even more fun than discovering the dress! ;-) Custom ruby slippers are already decided. Now i just have to spend countless hours looking for the perfect jewelry, and hair accessories :-D yay! (and bouquets, and garters, and stockings, and--and--*head asplodes*) lol. 

Okay, i promise to breathe. 



Okay, maybe i lied... XD

I lied. We're not going on Hiatus, i just had a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge case of writer's block, and complete denial, lol.

After much talking with the future-hubbs about the wedding, we've decided that, you know what? we don't care what everybody thinks about the wedding. I don't have to wear a white dress and a veil and we have to have a pretty cake with flowers and everything has to be normal. 

We're going with our origional plan, but slightly tweaked.

We're going all-out Halloween bitches!

So yeah... lol. We've always loved Halloween. it's the one time a year you get to dress up as sexy, as terrifying, as cute, or as bizarre as you possibly can, and get to patrol the streets (with or without gathering candy, although that's totally not a bad thing...) and people won't stare at you strange, or call the cops on you! It's truly the one night of the year (or in our case, month...) where you get to show your true colors, so why on earth shouldn't our wedding be any different?? after all... we're both coming out to our families that we're pagan, we're shoving normalicy out the window with our pagan cerimonies and all... why not go all the way? We're going black and orange baby!

Though we still want to keep the elegant feel to it -- after all, it is a wedding... (lmao) -- and we're not going to have people come in costumes or anything. We've been trolling the internet all day today oohing and ahing over   gorgeously terrifying tablescapes and wedding dresses with -- *le gasp!*-- black in them. (and i've fallen in love!!!) So i thought i'd let you guys all know what's going on ;-)

Keep in mind, (not that anybody's complained or left a comment in aaaaaaaaaaaages... lol) that posts are going to continue to be a little sporadic until i get things under control. i've got a LOT of crocheting i'm working on, and a lot of baking and sewing and other "girly" things to do. But i shall catch you all up on it. i swear. mebbe...

That, and i totally just re-organized all my bookmarks and favorites again so i'm not going "oooooh... where's that one picture i saved from that one website i wanted to post on the blog???" and then getting distracted by shiney zombie shoes and horror photo shoots... XD

So here we are.... I shall update with some frikkin' weet inspro boards as soon as i figure out how to use the bf's photoshop program. ( I. R. paintshop pro nerd....)

Hope you're all as excited as i am ;-)

Okay, deepest apologies, but there's been a lot going on lately that keeps me from attending to the blog at this present moment... (not that too many people read this anyways besides friends on facebook. >.> bleh) but still. We're going on Hiatus until further notice. <3
