it's never enough for me to just buy a nice, normal dress and go to a formal dance. i can never settle for simple updo and limo. it always have to be a themed ordeal. my poor date (who made a pact with me freshman year to escort me to every school dance) is just realzing that he will never have a normal dance-going experience.

so. for my junior prom, the theme was the ever epic SAFARI PROM.
i made my dress as well as eric's vest and cravat.  i don't have any pictures of the back but i used gold grommets and then laced up the back with black silky cord.  the bottom part of the dress was four different prints. it was very nice. i didn't use a pattern cause patterns are for suckers. sike. they're more like for people who are smart enough to know how to use them and who are gentle enough that they don't rip them to shreds attempting to unfold them.











and our mode of transportation:



aww hellyes. big pimpin.

every part of that is cool, from the school bus to your date's mustache...though we can't really see the clothes in any detail...!

I love the poses in the picture by the lake.  (the 3rd one)  I'm so glad your date wore that hat.
I would love to see a picture that shows the dress a little better.

yeah- they all dressed normally. i think it's enough that i make them put up with my outrageous outfits and ridiculous methods of transportation. i'm not going to force them to get in on it. although the one girl's dress is this really neat vintage frock if you can see it in the pictures...

and here's more pictures- they should give you a better idea of what the dress looked like....

Very cool! I love the dedication to the theme. That is KEY!

I just can't help wish with all my heart that there was a sign tacked to the side of that bus saying "HOLY CRAP. LIONS! TOURS"
