Update!!!  Ripley's Believe It Or Not has expressed interest in buying my dress (eek) and I don't have any experience in selling stuff...So if you'll go to this Craftster post in the right section and help me figure it out, that would be amazing!

Okay! Last year my dress was made of Doritos bags. Here's the Craftster post! This year I needed to top it somehow, and inspired by this and this...And then all the others that have been made.
I spent over 100 hours weaving and it took almost 4000 pop tabs!
Without further ado...

My lovely date!

Kudos to you for having the patience to weave all those together. The dress is stunning.

Your dress is beautiful - did you also make your date's boutonniere?
