Bridal Couture from the Darkside


The challenge this week at Macabre Monday was to create Bridal Couture from the Darkside.

"You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card utilizing bridal gowns... but not in white"

So - what do you think? Did I do it? I have to tell you, this was an absolute BLAST! I have not had this much fun making anything is ages. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy creating, but this, this was just different! I had all these ideas swimming in my head and was able to play and experiment. I love the end result, but now I'm not quite sure what to do with it, LOL!

i am totally amazed. (I would play with my Barbies again if I only got this dress for them. ;-) And to be honest: I started hating Barbie when I got 14. But I would love to dress one of these happily grinning dolls into a "darke" bride)
