Last October (2010) I finally got to go to Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland!  So I decided I finally had the perfect excuse to make my Dream Tinker Bell dress.  Besides, the store bought ones always suck, especially since I'm a perfectionist and a HUGE Tinker Bell freak since playing her in Peter Pan.  If you look closely at the new digital pictures of her, her dress is made of leaves.  I took my Tinker Bell Ice Skating dress from a competition and made it better!  Michael's was my best friend with this project, needle and thread became my enemy as I sewed most of it to where I couldn't get it on and had to redo it.  After sewing on the leaves, I sprayed them with silver glitter.  In the end, I was very happy and was so glad I did it!  I didn't think I'd ever be able to!  I also took jelly shoes and added the glitter leaves and pom pom, cut and styled the wig I wore, and wish I had of had time to make the wings too.

Brilliant!  I love that you made the dress with leaves, all those little details really make an impact.

I just showed my daughter (who is 7) and she just did fish-face and "Wow!"

Awww thank you!  Of course I had to do everything perfect!  I had had a long time to plan it out in my head.  And made it in a week.  =]  I had little kids and "big" kids wanting to take pictures with me and of me all night.  =D
