Feminist Gangs

Not that it ever was.

So making the news at the moment here in the not so United Kingdom lately has been the Chad Evans case.
TL;dr Sheffield footballer convicted of raping a woman, served half his sentence before being let out, now wants his job back, oh and one of our daytime TV stars had this to say:

Yep Judy because saying that you aren't defending someone before you defend them magically makes sense somehow, and then people sent her daughter rape threats on twitter (because somehow that makes sense?), and the red tops are finally calling for an end to internet trolls and want to call the law after Judy's daughter (not being funny, nobody deserves rape threats, at all, period, but surely if you're going to name a law after someone it makes more sense to go for someone like ooh say Anita Sarkeesian who has to put up with this bullshit every day), anyway Mr Evans's mother is now a "victim of a Feminist gang", and trying to imagine what a Feminist gang would look like is actually the one thing keeping me from hurling abuse at the TV every time I switch it on and see that this story is still ongoing.

A Feminist gang would no doubt be the most diverse gang ever, but we all have to get a new burning bra tattoo every time we Misander.

In place of a Veil

I have already mentioned that I don't want to wear a veil, but I would quite like something netted on me, and I think perhaps I would like to wear a lace mask.

I really like the idea of wearing something like this over my eyes, it gives a little mystery and glamour in my opinion!

While I don't want a veil, I think that I would like a tiara of some description, I have seen some very nice pre-made ones online, but being the massive creative control freak that I am I feel that perhaps I would like to make one instead.

I love the idea of a French Hood, although I am worried that it might not quite go with the dress, as it would be historically incorrect (not that that is a deal breaker, many things about our wedding will likely be historically incorrect), and I feel like I would probably have to change my hairstyle plans, as it would push my hair back further than the styles I have been looking at would likely work with.

I do quite like the idea of making something with clock hands though. They would be a good symbol of eternity, spinning forever like the hands of a clock!

Hair Inspiration

I don't think that I want a veil, but maybe something like this would be ok?
I think that really I would like a hairstyle that will fit well with the rococo theme of the dress, something big and floofy!
I don't think I will wear a wig though, I don't like to wear wigs and I have pretty long natural hair so I would like to use that.

Something like this would be wonderful, but it's a wig and were I to use my real hair, I don't think I have enough and I would probably wreck what I already have.

Something like this or

This would be better for what I have to work with, I am not sure which I like better so I will have to try them out and see which works better with my hair, so stay tuned for experimental photographs!

Dress Inspirations

via Flickr

The dress is something I have been thinking about for a while now, I don't really trust anybody else to make exactly what I want so I'm going to make my own.
I want something that represents me, and I have quite a flair for the dramatic so my dress will be pretty dramatic too.


I love the splendor of Georgian Rococo gowns and so I have bought myself a historically accurate pattern for a Robe a la Francaise. This will be somewhat of a challenge for me as I've never made anything this grand before, and I will have to also make all of the underpinnings (including a set of stays), and so I will be making a trial run in a different fabric.
My grandma gave me an old pair of blue taffeta curtains earlier in the year and I plan on making the trail run with these, if it doesn't work out, well the fabric was free, if it does work out I have something fabulous to wear for the BSIFF next year!

I do have a fabric picked out for the final dress, but I think it might be a little unlucky to share it before I even make the trial run!
