I am delighted to report that my prom dress was a success. Prepare for a picture heavy post.
(Oh, and blogger is terrible at resizing everything... click the pictures for a large, clearer view.)
I deem it necessary to point out that the stupid flash caused my bright blue shorts to show through much more than they did in real life. My hair, on the other hand, really was that messy. I wasn't thinking very hard when I fixed it into a spiraling, knotted braid at the top of my head with haphazard tangles falling from my head. Needless to say, it promptly fell out into a wild mass of fuzz and barrettes.
One more picture, this time sans the mane:
Yeah, yeah, the dress turned out well, but the dance proved to be a total drag. Most of what the DJ played was new rap music, which sounded like ring tones with vulgar lyrics croaked out over them. It was ridiculously boring, and I danced so hard to Sandstorm at the beginning that my stomach hurt for the rest of the dance. Luckily we got there at 9 and left at 11 (the minimum amount of time we were allowed to be there), and had a lot more fun just hanging out in the car in Steak n' Shake's parking lot, laughing too hard at things that aren't funny. Which is the best. (This was only junior prom, so at least now I know not to waste my time again next year.)

Okay, so I can tell that by now you are all sick of mine and my friends' collective ugliness. Onward!
Much knitting is to come after this. Now I can finally dig back into my array of knitted beginnings, all of which I was forced to bury for the sake of this dress hanging over my head.
Oh, and I ordered a bunch of yarn from KnitPicks.com this morning, which my mom paid for since I'm a poor, jobless kid. Isn't she sweet?
