Wow, that's really amazing! I experimented with plastic a while ago but i always used thick foil and it was really nerve-wracking. You have my deepest admiration for that dress. If you can do that with foil, what can you do with fabric then? Shocked
(I love your styling too. Great makeup!)

So... I have to know.  Was this a social commentary on the ball culture's plastic-ness?  Or am I just reading WAY too much into this?  Either way, it's awesome!!!

Did you find it hard to sew the plastic on your machine?

It looks beautiful. Did it make fun crinkly noises when you moved?
