The moral of this story is:   Don't tell me I can't do something.   I will do it just to spite you, as my friend Abby learned when she said I probably couldn't make Kaylee's fluffy pink layer cake dress for Dragon*Con.   

Somewhere among the insanity that was con prep season, I had to hand gather more chiffon than I want to count, learn that Internet fabric sources might interpret rose pink as neon cotton candy, buy the pink chiffon twice, run out of budget for hoop skirts after the stores took the summer hula hoops out, find the tackiest upholstery trim I have ever seen, and curse Joss Whedon's costuming team in six languages.     It's kind of a budget version-  so very polyester, the underskirt is pieced together from thrifted linen skirts, the sleeves are triple layered to look like the impossible to locate brocade, and the hoop skirts had to be replaced with a petticoat so large that the thrift store practically gave it away for lack of storage space (with my friend's bright orange tutu underneath for more volume).   Next year, with proper skirt support, this thing will rock.
