I was so very excited to be able to wear this dress again. I've had it for 16 years... why yes, since my highschool grad.

This is the dollar store mask I upgraded for the event. The sparkles already matched my dress perfectly. Removed the useless ties and added a stick to hold it up with. Most importantly, I crocheted several motifs (mostly Irish style) using black crochet cotton and leftover Montague lace from the shawl and glued them on. I'd debated doing something more complex - such as a full lace mask - but I decided to be realistic. Even these did not glued on until 2 hours before the event.
