Bombshell Promaballoona

It’s Promaballoona! And what better way to celebrate than to don a bombshell dress and hop on a cruise with your sweetheart?

I’ll save the commentary on the making of the dress for another post; this here post is for fun and eye candy lol

We started off our evening with class: a 1 hour ride via public transit; it was 32 degrees out and we were a little more wilted looking than when we left! 😛

A couple Bellinis at a local restaurant while waiting for our boat to board helped with that, then it was off to sea! 🙂

As it got dark and we sailed around the harbour, we watched the finale of the Festival of Light – a spectacular fireworks exhibition ^__^

However, the boat was having troubles anchoring and we ended up crashing into two parked boats, making it difficult to concentrate on the festivities lol. We were outside but here’s a pic of the damage incurred down below:

Nevertheless after being escorted back to the docks by police, waiting for a cab, and getting home at 3am, we still had a pretty entertaining evening!

Happy Birthday, Oona! Hope you had a great birthday & as much fun (but less cops lol) than us!!

It’s Finished!!

And just in time for Promaballoona!

Of course we can’t be in L.A. for the in-person party but my hunnie and I have an AMAZING prom date planned on Saturday! So you’ll have to wait ’til then to see it in action but here are some pics of the final stages of this long, long project!

(as an aside… I’m kinda in disbelief about it all right now – I haven’t had any free time for a month!! now what am I gonna do with myself?? lol)

My first ever buttonhole, and one of the inside buttons holding on the halter strap:
