The Winter Sky dress, better known as Disney Princess, has sacrificed herself for the greater good. The underskirts are detached, unruffled and crin removed to become the underpinning of Gown #10. Double digits!
One white underskirt remains more or less intact, though closer inspection revealed a tear in a seam that needs repair. The crin should work just fine, but the heavily gathered effect made the old dress move awkwardly, so new pieces will be cut and sewed. Basically, the old underskirts are now just a source for fabric.
The crystals on the old dress will be harvested by a technique still to be discovered. I will tackle that another time. The small blob of pink and white is thread that was pulled off the gathered top of the underskirts and the crin. That’s a lotta thread!
It has been awhile, but the new gown has been cut out and with any luck, will be ready for Snowball. Stay tuned.
The VCC is quickly becoming one of our favourite competitions of the year, and not just for the fabulous custom cocktails! The venue is lovely and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. The team events, Jack and Jill competitions and other entertainments are really enjoyable and add a sense of community and interactivity. Good fun:-)
We haven’t purchased any photos yet, but among the talented photographers present, we have found a few that might find their way onto our computers eventually:
Ouch – he is on my foot! Actually also happy:-)
Ouch – now she is on MY foot!
Tango face. Dance tango like you mean it.
Still happy in spite of a headless partner.
Coach Faye says these steps are too “small and comfortable”.
Might have to buy this one to see it without the watermark. In spite of appearances, that is actually a ton of makeup!
Two words – SHOW STEALER
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Here we are about to dance Championship for the first time!
The photos are a bit blurry – waiting for the professional ones coming soon, I hope. How cool to be introduced by John DePalma, walking down an actual red carpet in Las Vegas.
Not only did we not fall down (always objective #1 LOL!) but we danced really well, felt fantastic in spite of it being somewhere after 11 pm, and we came third! Admittedly it was a small field, but we will take it as a victory anyway.
The next day activity – zip line over Freemont Street.
We had a club demo this past weekend and got some nice photos taken by friends.
The problem with a height difference:
Swirly skirts and tango face:
