Chicken Butt (The Latest Blue Dress)

In answer to the first post about my new court outfit for BAM...here it is:

navy blue cotton denim velveteen, red linen
sleeve linings, red microfiber half-sleeves
gold drapery tapestry fabric trim.  The overall
look was inspired in part by this

the deep-V back, which I am trying out here
for the first time, and which I adore; and the
long train, which I forgot to arrange nicely
for this picture, lol.  

sleeve layers

probably my favorite hair ever, for look and ease of wear
(although it was done in a hurry for these pics and looks
a bit slapdash).  Two braids crossed over my forehead
and tucked into my snood, topped by my circlet and then
my silk veil (which is usally worn much farther forward
than this; but I pulled it back so you could see the snood)

Tada!  I have GOT to start making sure someone photographs me at events.  I swear.  Maybe nobody likes me.  ;0)

I ended up using some "gold" and "crystal" (both plastic) buttons that I pulled off a pair of fancy half-sleeves, for this dress.  As soon as I find something for this dress I like better (and can afford.  Holy cow, buttons are expensive now that my discount place closed down!), these crystal buttons are going back onto the sleeves, because I like them better there.
