Oh like Yoda

There are a lot of photos for today since I have a tripod now and I LOVE this dress. The skirts is very swishy, which is good because i like to enter rooms dramatically.

Our backyard looks like an archaeological dig at the moment since we are making the pond bigger. I decided to hop in and take a photo. It goes even further to the left than in the picture.
I haven't gathered the courage to take pictures where there are other people yet, because even though I love the camera when other people are taking the photo, it would just feel weird setting up my tripod and camera right in the middle of where I'm not the only one there.

I decided to sit in the grass because I thought the green would contrast nicely with the red in my skirt.And you can see my shoes better.

Monday I wanted to wear my flapper dress and military jacket. My science teacher told me I was born in the wrong decade and that I should have been a hippie or a flapper. I love this dress but since the fringe is in loops I get stuck on everything. I got stuck on my friends jacket at lunch and I repeatedly get stuck on door knobs.

This is the first day I got the tripod. I wanted to wear my silver GoGo boots since it was cold.

I have the sweetest friends. My friend drew me this a few weeks a go. Its a calendar but not a only is it calendar its a calendar of me in chibi form. My friend told me chibi's were small cute people, to which I replied," Oh, like Yoda".
The homecoming dance is coming up and I need a dress. I drew three that would be great.
The first is a dress with two layers of ombre purple fringe and the final layer extends past the hem. The one in the middle is a flapper style dress with beaded fringe and a beaded belt. The third is a pencil dress with a tulle overskirt and a rhinestone collar and belt.
I would have to make these but the first one my fabric store doesn't sell long enough fringe. The second one I don't have enough time since it's completely beaded. So I'll probably get something totally 80's from the thrift store.

Ooh, red tights and a red skirt - and an Erin Fetherston sweatshirt! Such an adorable look. But those gogo boots - they are stellar; completely intergalactic, kitschy and fun. J'adore! :)

I love the flapper dress. I always mean to get some fringe but the loops get stuck on buttons and what not and are a general pain.
I like your tripod pictures, I'm not brave enough to take pictures in public either.

I'm not brave enough to take pictures in public all by myself too, so I take my picture in the garden lol but sometimes I ask my sister to make pictures.
