AMY POND, Wedding Dress
fans love to gush about David Tennant, but I'm a much bigger fan of Matt Smith's Eleventh incarnation of the Doctor and I love his cute, feisty, and apologetically awkward companion, Amy Pond. In some ways she reminds me of myself, even down to her penchant for short skirts
, though saying anything else would be a spoiler.
I love Amy's wedding dress but didn't get the motivation until PatrickD decided to do the Doctor's wedding outfit and wanted me to join him for the Dragon*Con parade. The dress is a simple A-line design with a bridal satin base and a sheer overlay. I grabbed it on ebay for $60 and Stardust and I pulled off all the glass beading with Xacto knives. I then set about shaping and sewing on appliques to match Amy's pattern; I didn't have enough time to finish all the appliques for Dragon*Con, but they're sitting on my desk and I should be able to get them all on there this winter. The veil is one layer of white tulle gathered into a hair comb and the necklace I already had laying around. I love how it came out and Patrick and I had a blast dancing our way along the parade route!
