My mother ordered that for me from pyramidcollection.com. I've gotten two or three great dresses from there since. The quality is surprisingly good. I've ordered a heavy purple velvet dress in case I decide to do Lady Roberta Meserole in November. And by DO I mean BE.

That might in fact be impossible to do :D

It's fair to say, that with hairy bikers dressed up as ladies, nothing you could do would be considered embarrasing.

The Irish con is going very well. What a beautiful beautiful country and this part of it is just lovely.

:shock:

Well, if it'd make you feel any better, why not wear them, take a photo and post it here? I'm sure we wouldn't mind. :twisted:

Maybe some night when I'm drunk, :wink: :wink: besides that there's no hope.I have my suspicions that the outfits may have been part of the reason I did not get to go,(I was going on my own as OH hates TP) it was supposed to be my anniversary pressie but the OH said he totally forgot :roll: and it was too late we couldn't afford it :( I got a wooly jumper instead which is 3 sizes too big

Next time I'll just save up myself and bugger off to a con

Hmmm!!forgot, :shock: methinks that statement is the equivalent of that stuff that excretes from a bulls behind, I do feel a bit sorry for you.

Be determined to go to the next one regardless. :) He has plenty of time to save for a pressie next year in Brum even if it's a bit early.

Oh my I had so much fun and Ireland has so captured my heart. I fully intend to go back and drive drive drive. What a beautiful place. Here is the link to my Facebook photo album but I'm still uploading photos. I also dropped my camera just before the gala dinner and had to rely on my in camera phone and on the photos of others until a new one could be purchased in London.

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=122490&id=637429032&l=10deec1df1

That's a public link so even if you aren't on Facebook you should be able to view. Also I did go overboard on buying photos by the pro photographers that were there. They were SO good! I usually take weird looking photos but these two really knew what they were doing.
