i haven't posted any of my projects in ten thousand years. so here we go.

i made this dress for our snowflake ball. i picked the most horrific color combination i could find, drafted the pattern, etc. etc. i also made the giraffe print cropped jacket seen in the bottom picture as well as my date's flower thingy. butionare? butinere? i'm too lazy to go to dictionary.com and figure out for sure.

i got the cute lil lazy eye thing going on.

and the badass story to accompany this last picture:

so before this dance, we had a really nice dinner at my friend jonas' house. and we had such a nice time that we were a little late getting to the dance. the doors close at 8 and we arrived at 8:10 thinking nothing of it because a) jonas' mother had called to let the teachers know we would be late/we werent out drinking and b) we all had set up for the dance and had to be there because we're all student council members and it's mandatory for student council kids. so we go inside and as soon as we head towards the gym we get chased down by teachers/ the rent a cop man. long story short, we were thrown out of the dance and i got a special police escorting out because i had an 'attitude problem'. so we took that last picture, a bunch of our parents came down to the dance, bitched out the teachers and we got in for the last five minutes. the end.

more pictures!

awesome dress... hilarious story... cops think anyone with a brain has an attitude problem.

The dress and hair are both awesome.  I always say as far as hair goes the higher the better.
