One of the greatest things about Etsy is that it allows every woman – no matter what her size or shape – to look like a fucking idiot for about $100.
I think it would sell better if it advertised itself as the IcyHot (or Bengay) of dresses.
it does burn the eyes quite a bit!
See, I’m thinking “Heat Miser + Snow Miser”…. the perfect holiday outfit!
Plus, it has its own theme songs

team not getting knocked up on prom night because no one would be brave enough to take you!
This year she’s got 2 dates.
are we sure this is prom? because she looks a little long of tooth to be a high schooler.
and i think you meant “team never been felt up, much less knocked up.”
Have you SEEN some of the 17 year olds this day and age? I get carded at 29… but I know some who, if I were to give money to and say “Buy me that bottle of horny goat weed/wine/whiskey/cigarettes, whatever” with nary a side eye or “Can we see ID?” Face it, kids don’t stay chubby cheeked and innocent looking long. I know a 16 year old who is very sweet, but looks like a 50 year old woman… too tight, too bleached, too everything.
There is always someone brave enough.
Lid for every pot/bong for every pot/ however that goes.
Exactly! I am going to be the sole person to advocate for this dress and her sanity. I AM NOT a Twihard or whatever the spaghettios they are calling themselves these days but I appreciate her creativity, her balls to wear this out in public and the work that went into it. Now trying to sell it to others? That is pure regretsy/etsy magic. The world is full of bland outfits, this inspires discussion and boggles the mind.
I always wonder what people’s classmates think of these things. Maybe they’ve seen it coming.
Change those pics to the Heat & Snow Misers and you’ve got yourself a sale!
Oh my gosh! I just saw your comment.
Scary that we’re on the same wave length.
(I’m just glad someone else saw Heat Miser and Snow Miser to be honest)
First thing I thought!
Based on Helen and Bronc’s Regretsy Xmas special all things Rankin-Bass are part of the Regretsy lexicon
Anything Rankin/Bass is God-like in my book. Then again, I have an unhealthy obsession with stop-motion animation. I suppose there are worse unhealthy obsessions, like Twilight themed prom dresses.
Back in the very early 90s I worked in a video rental store. They had a rack to put out movies related to whichever holiday was closest. This was way before the WWW was a big thing.
One day around Christmas, this group of college kids came in and asked for the special with Heat/Snow Miser. Neither I nor the other clerk could remember which one it was, so we played through all the RB tapes we had on FF using the store’s TV until we found it.
The odd thing was, they weren’t the only ones. A week or so later, another group of college kids came in and asked the same thing. We only had one copy and I think that tape was out more or less through Christmas.
So no, you’re not the only one.
For all you other Heat/Snow Miser fans out there, someone uploaded an HD version of their songs to Youtube. Enjoy!
This video is my childhood! <3
What the heck? Were they syncing it up to Dark Side of the Moon?
Miser fandom goes back a long way, apparently. The RB tapes were all new, so that may have been the first year they were available on video.
The main thing I remember was both groups were at least four people, all adults. The first group stood around the TV and cheered when we finally found the right tape. XD
Sorry, meant to hit the thumbs up but fat fingered it.
No no…..plus girls know better than to wear tacky… Well sadly these two didn’t but honestly we already have the whole big girls have no fashion sense stereotype going for us….then you add this travesty and people just think plus girls have no sense too.
As if the swimsuit selection wasn’t bad enough. A skirt AND a large Hawaiian patter? Yes please!! How flattering!
Thankfully the plus selection’s getting better with the Internet being a thing.
But there are not enough Tim Gunn gifs in the world to express my feelings about this dress.
Pretty sure it’s just the one woman.
Amen! It’s all her own doing, I’m sure. And from the expressions on her face, she may know it’s over the top and done it for fun. That’s certainly not a prom behind her!
Yeah I’m trying to figure out what type of event that is. Any guesses?
I’m gonna guess some kind of Twilight book signing/luncheon….if they have that sort of thing. I mainly assume this because I want to believe that no one would EVER wear that dress as a dress and not a costume/joke.
It…looks like a room at a science fiction convention. Most of those are held at hotels, so it isn’t really telling, but that’s the vibe I’m getting from the photo. A costume like that wouldn’t be entirely out of place at such an event…but most SF fans I know wouldn’t fly the Twi flag like that. If that really is a con, I weep for the future of my tribe.
I was assuming the woman in black was Stephanie Meyer.
It’s Stephenie, which I only know because it’s like a needle in my brain. Your first mistake was assuming that someone who can’t write had parents who would spell her name a way anyone else would get right.
Her parents did that to her name because her dad’s name is Stephen. This is apparently the ‘inspiration’ for the cracked name-smushing she did for the kid.
I love Fandom Wank, but the useless information I pick up there always overwrites my memory allocation for where I left my goddamned glasses and keys.
Yeah, because it has nothing to do with the fact that Mormons are notorious for making up names for their kids. It was totally just her family. Pfft.
As a Jennefer who is neither Mormon nor whose parents mashed their own name into this misspelled travesty I’ve had to deal with my whole life, I do have the tiniest bit of sympathy for Ms. Meyer. Not enough to forgive her for inflicting Twilight on us, but a little.
My name is Stephenie. I’m named after my father and until this bint came on the scene I never had a reason to be ashamed of my name. Now it causes me nothing but grief. Think I’m gonna change it to something like “Not-THAT-Stephenie-the SANE-ish-one”
Imagine how it feels for those of us whose last name is Cullen.
Actually, there are other people out there named “Stephenie”. The only example I can think of is that one of the set designers for the Harry Potter movies is a woman named Stephenie McMillan, who has also worked on Notting Hill and A Fish Called Wanda.
But it’s quite a nicely-made dress, apart from the Christmas tree lights and the oh-my-what-is-that-face-doing-there split personality thing. And the tinfoil, which I feel should have been somewhere different.
…make that nicely-FITTED. I just noticed the complete lack of alignment between bodice and skirt.
Back to the Textiles class, lady!
It looks to me like it’s separates, and the top and bottom aren’t attached to each other. That way the sweaty top could be cleaned without messing up the lights in the skirt.
But…surely you’d have to remove the lights to wash it? And, presumably, iron it?
This dress sounds like WAY too much work!
Yes, you would, but skirts don’t tend to get sweaty (and if you’re getting a hoop skirt sweaty, I don’t wanna know how) and would need to be laundered less often. It also allows for more of a custom fit and hides flaws of the body more.
Wish I had a dime for every time I was shopping and muttered, “I hope the buyer who thought this would be a good idea in size 20 got fired.” I’m middle-aged and my greatest wish is to blend in. Hard to do whilst wearing faux cheetah, zebra, or giraffe. I would look like I got kicked out of the sub-Saharan all-u-can-eat safari buffet.
I really wonder if they had zoo animals design the prints. Like by putting paint on their feet. It’s the only way I can rationalize the puke-like prints mixed with animal prints that I see in the plus sized sections.
There are some plus-size women who want to stand out in a crowd.
I like to stand out, but for me, that does not involve LEDs, mismatched shoes, strangulating foundation garments, or the skins of animals who were half my size when alive.
Also, by “stand out,” I do not mean “like a target.”
I’m so grateful for clueless people with no shame, without which we would not have this kind of hilarious shit.
I’d totally buy it, but that bitch already wore it out somewhere. It’s no good if everyone’s already SEEN IT. ffffffff
Hey, cut them some slack. How else were they supposed to show up at the prom with a boy?
You, dearest, owe me a new keyboard as I have spewed Sprite all over mine. I el-oh-el’d for real.
Put it in the dishwasher. Follow interbutts instructions on how and then make sure you save a copy as you will need them many times on Regretsy.
Okay, you got me, I didn’t actually spew Sprite. I did almost shoot it out my nose and it burned and made my eyes water.
I’ve been at Regretsy since almost the beginning, you’d think I’d learn not to drink while reading the comments. I figured I’d heard all the Twi-tard jokes by now though.
That is so deliciously mean. I love it.
hfkjsdfhfhsalkjd SO COLD but I lol’d.
It took me a long moment, but I finally got what you just said. LMAO on some barn wood!
I wonder if this will go with my uterus-ripping vampire fetus tiara or if that’s a bit over-the-top?
IMPOSTER. A TRUE twitard would know that it was a uterus-ripping HALF vampire
…*strokes female neckbeard equivalent*
PensEnvy might be a 100% vampire knocked up by Barnabas Collins! YOU DON’T KNOW HER!
I’m more of a treepire. I suck the blood from trees, bottle it, and pour it on delicious pancakes.
Never mind that. If she made custom shoes, she must have made special lingerie to go with it. What the hell must that look like?
Three words: magic Mormon underwear.
Oh now I can’t wash that image out of my brain. Thanks a bunch.
If you hate Twilight as much as I do, read Stoney321′s fuckerific summary of the Twilight books series while she also points out neon flashing LDS dogma. It’s quite hysterical. The photos really make it even better as Stoney rips S. Meyer a new one in what Stoney calls “Sparkledamerung”: http://stoney321.livejournal.com/317176.html
Like Alice, the creepy upbeat flibbertigibbet:

Fixing the last link because it was really good
Thanks for passing this link on…it is fricken heelarious and so worth wasting my time at work to read. The last pic of the first post really made me squawk out loud with the laughins.
One wonders about the date taking her to the prom, and what s/he would wear. Or would she have two of them, one for each “team”?
If she can find ONE date, she should thank Ceiling Cat, because especially in that outfit, I don’t see that shit happening.
Our kitty, who art in ceiling…
Jacob is labelled…. red?
Joke win, gif fail.
It’s a standard thing to just put something like that in comments on reddit since they don’t actually show up and people son’t click on them. Just putting the name of the gif gets the idea across, since everyone knows what the gif is, anyway.
(The nerve of that newbie trying to tell ME how to Internet!)
I want this, i mean really, I want it to wear to the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere! I’ll go stand at LA Live with this dress and wear it proudly! Think about how many news outlets I could get on!
That is the first thing I thought of as well. Really, this is dress is awesome if you are a Twilight fan. No one would upstage you in this beauty.
Your screen name leads me to believe Dr. Seuss has gone country & western?
I also think it says something about me that I’m more bothered by the misaligned top and bottom halves than by the light-up pictures on the skirt.
I just logged in to say something about that. The misaligned top and bottom seams are one of THE EASIEST things to avoid and she un-nailed it by a good inch at least. How anybody could make such an obvious mistake like that and still charge money for it is baffling. That is grade F seamstress work right there and I’m only embarrassed for this girl in regards to the shoddy half-assed attempt and NOT the theme, subject or artistic relevance of her work.
Am I taking this too seriously?
That was the FIRST thing I noticed, and I don’t even sew.
An additional picture seems to point that it’s a 2 piece dress. that, or she folded the bodice under in one photo.
AHA!! Thank you SO much for pointing that out to me. Before I pointed fingers I should have done the legwork and followed the link.
Sorry for the mean things I said about your seams. Party on!
The misaligned seams are a way of distracting people who sew from the horrible boning, the wrinkled/stretched seams, the lack of proper facing from the hoop to the bottom of the hem and the dreadful lack of ironing. So much work on these .. items … and such a shortage of finesse. Makes me miss ‘Am I Period or Not?’, sniff.
The bad hoop was driving me CRAZY! That is definitely the part that’s pissing me off. If you’re going to wear a hoop, make sure it fits right and doesn’t have unsightly drop-off afterwards!
RIGHT! It’s such an easy fix too. One hidden flounce of netting and it’s all better.
Oh. I think this explains why I can’t find an effin’ hoop in the pic…it’s INSIDE the dress, eh, seamstresses? Me = not a crafter. Can you tell?
Don’t be silly, @Getoffmylawn! Hiding flounces is not the way of things at Regretsy. The more visible the flounce, the better!
But I think the stretched seams are just due to the use of cheap fabric, and the lack of ironing is because this photo was clearly taken some way through the evening (and again, the cheap fabric) – in which case, kudos to the wearer for it NOT being covered in other people’s drinks. Or her own.
The hoop display, on the other hand, I just put down to inexperience. But then, there’s no excuse for the way that shoulder decoration is about to gag and strangle her.
Maybe it’s two pieces? That way, when she turns the top goes with her and the bottom stays stationery? Sorry. I don’t know why I’m trying to justify this.
If you click through, you’ll see it is actually two pieces. Still not an excuse for not giving it a little tug in the right direction to line it up.
I saw the photos, but I honestly didn’t make the connection–that the top was a top (especially since the seller doesn’t say it’s a 2-piece dress). I thought it was a drawstring bag.
or you could, *I don’t know* sew it the right way by attaching them together with a tab or crochet loop. Then it wouldn’t shift like that.
“If you click through…”
It’s gone. Twilight fan AND bad sport. Pfffft.
I pray the reason this girl is selling this is because she saw the pictures of her in it and realized how totally stupid she looked wearing that thing.
Please let me keep my one last shred of hope for humanity…
It doesn’t look like prom behind her – probably a wedding. What if there were a whole group of bridesmaids with dresses like that? :::shudder::: The Twitard wedding is the new Hobo wedding.
Yeah, the first words out of my mouth upon looking at the first photo was “Oh honey, aren’t you a bit old to be gluing the faces of tween heartthrobs onto formal wear?” I’m no good at guessing ages, but I’d guess her be in her mid to late twenties at the very least. I don’t know if she wore these at two different occasions or what, because I swear she looks older in the 2nd pic, but maybe it’s the angle, lighting, whatever. Anyway, whatever it is going on here, I doubt it’s a prom and somehow that makes it even more horrific.
I know some 16-17 year-olds who are mistaken for mid-20s so she might be younger than you think.
I don’t know, her profile said she was the mom of a four year old. Of course, I guess that doesn’t necessarily mean much for a variety of possible reasons.
Being mid twenties myself people usually guess me to be younger, which is rather funny because when I was 15-16 people always assumed me to be older. I have no idea why, but I figure that’s why I’m no good at guessing (but evidently I’m not alone LOL).
Yeah I get that a lot too, but I’ve always been mistaken for younger. I still get carded for 18+ things, and I’ve been mistaken for a 12-15 year old when I was at least 19-20 at the time.
I’m also horrible at guessing other peoples ages.
I’m the same way, but now people either think I’m 18 or 34, not sure why, but now I really hate it when people think I’m older; hell, I’m dreading my 25th birthday in a few weeks, ugh. It was cool as a teenager, not so much as an adult…It’s like when people tell me how much I look like my mother; yeah, that’s exactly what I want to hear. -.-’
@ConsumingShadows: You’re going to turn a half century old!!!
/someone who’s waaaaay older and feeling snarky
True story: When I was waiting tables, I carded two guys for their drinks. They started laughing. The first guy showed me his license and he was in his early 40s, pointed across the table, and said, “That’s my father.”
I’m really bad at guessing ages and I wasn’t that good at waiting tables either. But I did get a good tip from them…
from the crapstands in the background of the listing’s second photo, i think it’s some sort of twicon. do those exist?
Of COURSE they do!
That actually scares me.
It’s definitely a convention. And probably not a twilight-only convention, because all the other guests in the ballroom seem to be cowering against the walls.
Yup. Only hotels and convention centers have carpeting that ugly.
oh yeah – I can smell the coffee cart and plastic danish from here.
Also why is the Werewolf fire? Is it a subtle nod that he played Lava Boy when he was a child?
I’m guessing because, according to the smashing Movies in 10 Minutes review, Jacob runs a bad fever right before he fursplodes for the first time. A fever of ‘one hundred and werewolf’, as I recall.
Of course, it could also be simply because Jacob still has a body temperature at all.
Also I think he is supposed to have a higher-than-normal body temperature and keeps Bella warm when she is freezing at some point or something like that.
Cleolinda has taught me everything I need to know about Twilight, so I don’t have to read or watch it. Bless that woman.
Wait what? That Lava boy movie came out when I was well into my teens, and you are saying the kid my younger sisters are OBSESSED over was someone who … OMG MY AGE HAS JUST BECOME REAL.
btw I’m sorry to all those who are even older than my youthful arse but the shock required comment.
(it also says alot about the movie that neither you nor I remembered that he was in fact Sharkboy, yes I looked it up)
Sigh. I was well into my thirties when that movie came out.
Speaking of people in their thirties, here’s something scary: Macaulay Culkin, age 31. Ever see “Home Alone”? Well, I DROVE myself to the theater to see it when I was a teen.
How is he 31, dammit?!?
Same age as my son. STFU.
Edward is a corpse. Any other living thing is fire by comparison.
Finally found my wedding dress!
Don’t forget the sparkly body glitter.
“My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” is running out of unique designs for their blushing brides.
Ah, so I’m not the only one who immediately thought of the light up dress on that show…
my first thought as well!
“I sat on Jacob’s (Edward’s) face until it just got too hot to take anymore. One of my cheeks is still so red!”
- real-life testimonial
My former daughter-in-law just called me and asked if I could either a) take this dress in if she bought it (she’s a size 8 ) or make her one just like it.
Can I use this as grounds to get custody of my grandsons?
God, yes!!! Not only custody of your grandsons, but a permanent order of protection against their mom to stay at least 100 yards or the distance someone can see this dress, whichever is farther away.
I’ve already alerted Child Protection Services: Fan Boy division.
Most definately and a strait jacket.
What?? No body shaming comments yet? Pffft.
Naaahhh, she’s not hairy/naked and droopy enough for that.
Things the victim can’t avoid are no fun to mock.
They have to feel like your ridiculing their choices for it to be any fun. Some one who doesn’t shave their pits to “show the man”, guaranteed dramatic glittery flounce. Someone who is genetically over weight, well that will just end in tears which is no where near as awesome as a flounce.
Besides plus sized women are almost 10 times sexier than the “standard” for sexy. They just need to know how to show it off.
Yeah, she’s actually gorgeous. My partner’s a 22 and I could totally see her and Twitard-girl in a clinch. Rwowr.
… provided the dress came off first, and also provided there is not matching lingerie.
You mean like this?
I used to be overweight. Four years ago I lost over 75 pounds and I’m now a healthy size 8 and have never been happier.
It really pisses me off when people pretend that obesity is something purely genetic that “can’t be helped.” You’re doing overweight people a huge disservice by pretending they aren’t capable of changing their bodies if they so choose (barring the small percentage of people with GENUINE health problems who truly have no choice.)
If she’s content being a size 22, then go girl, keep on rockin’. But don’t patronize her by pretending her own personal choices aren’t at least a little bit to blame. And yes, she is gorgeous.
So it bothers you when people treat being overweight as though it isn’t a sign of immorality and slobbishness? So you think it’s better to have an attitude that weight loss is easy and those who don’t lose 75 pounds are just inherently lazy? Because I would think you would find that especially insulting.
No, because she lost the weight. So of course it’s not insulting to her, because she doesn’t consider herself a big girl anymore.
I should have clarified: I would think that someone who went to all the trouble to work against the genes telling her to pack it on for the baybeez would find it extremely insulting for others to treat what was undoubtedly hard work as though it was a matter of just not eating entire cakes every day omgz go on a diet fat-hate ad nauseam.
Am I wrong in thinking that is equally insulting to those who work for the bodies they have now as to those who are still curvy?
But apparently she doesn’t mind having her hard work dismissed, so the rest of us shouldn’t be offended by being considered fat and lazy. Okay then!
No one is happier insulting fat women than a former fat women.
Also, while I’m at it: nothing more obnoxious than a former smoker or recovering alcoholic.
I quit smoking two years ago, after perfecting my technique for 35 years. All y’all who still smoke STINK.
See how obnoxious that is?
Look, I’ve been on both sides of this fence and what is offensive to me is that everyone feels they need to voice their opinion on it. Good for you, you lost weight! That is a huge accomplishment, and I’m sure you’re very proud. But, there are plenty of people out there who are comfortable with their size and don’t give a rats ass about whether or not other people think they’re capable of losing weight. I’m plenty comforrtable in my size 18 jeans, and I’m comfortable in my own skin. I better be, because it isn’t changing. My weight gain is a result of chronic steroids use for my rheumatoid arthritis. Id wager a bet that I eat a healthier diet than most thin people do, but because of my medications, I continue to gain weight. Anyway, just my opinion.
UH-OH! Will Hoop Skirts become the new octopus/barn wood? (shudders)
I’m more worries about the one-glove trend.
i’d bet anything she used a hula hoop.
So… my computer is running really slowly today, and so when I first loaded this page, I had a good minute or so to only look at the top half of the dress. I thought to myself, “Okay, it’s kinda weird, but kinda neat. Why does it say Twilight in the title?” (as if I’d forgotten that there IS another definition for the word) Then I saw the bottom, and I was like, “Oh. So THAT’S it.”
Oh, guuuurl. I was with you until I saw it was a two piece. Who on earth would wear a 2 piece formal?
Any trendy girls from the mid- to late 90s
I smell the heavy stench of a Simplicity “make your own prom dress” pattern. I also want to know what kind of event she would go to in that dress and the lady posing with her went in business casual. It’s like she got her dates confused.
I had a two-piece homecoming dress in the mid-’00s — but the skirt and the top were coordinates, not matches, so it didn’t get that weird “um … your dress is experiencing continental drift …” vibe.
Two-piece formals work a lot better if you’re like me and gain weight in front/have a naveldivot. The one-pieces tend to hit at the wrong spot and make you look like a cushion. I never wore a one-piece anything until I started living with a seamstress who could MAKE them work.
If you’re selling something that costs more than a few dollars, take time to color correct the freakin’ photo. The red side looks Barbie pink and it would take about 2 seconds to fix. Even if the whole thing weren’t a trainwreck, that alone would annoy me enough.
seriously. I thought there was more than one dress at first. Which would be horrifying.
With flash and without flash, I think. Hey, she’s a “sewer”, not a Photoshop player.
And I meant sewer as in seamstress!
I actually liked the fugly-ness of this until I realized it wasn’t pink!
I want one with the Burger King on one side and Ronald McDonald on the other. As zombies.
…kissing zombies? (WARNING: OGLAF)
Like in Tina’s dreams from Bob’s Burgers.
Shout out to Bob’s Burgers!!! Best show ever besides The Walking Dead…and Spongebob Squarepants…and oh, never mind.
rofl. I love that fuckin comic. I mean, what? Why? Why is that what she would do with turned zombies?
I never quite got that either. Eventually I figured it was a joke on the slang meaning of “turn” to mean changing someone’s sexuality, through force of hotness to turn them gay or through force of exorcisms and powerful emetics to turn them straight.
Admittedly, I’ve heard someone actually say “turned” in that sense exactly … once.
This does not prevent that from being one of my favorite Oglaf strips.
get that brianmnemonic guy to do the stencils and I would build that dress.
Two-Face sure knows how to spoil his daughter.
And is it just me, or does the girl on the right look an awful lot like Catherine Tate? Doctor Who > Twilight.
Impossible. Donna Noble would not smile passively for a picture with that dress. Unless that is Turn Left Donna, of course.
I need more thumbs.
I can see how, if you were a Twilight fan, you’d find this amazing. If it didn’t light up it probably wouldn’t be so tacky. Why make fun of someone being ‘fugly’ when they’re clearly so happy, and have gone to so much effort?
Are you for real?
seriously? Do you not see how badly it’s made? And it would be really tacky even if it didn’t light up. (I mean, my god, those feathers!) Which isn’t even mentioning that the bilateral split is awkward. Also, we’re not making fun of the person wearing the dress, she’s perfectly lovely. We’re making fun of the dress itself because it’s an abomination unto Nuggan and should be banished. Although I suppose we are making fun of her, if she was the one that made the dress, for making something so horrific.
“if you were a Twilight fan, you’d find this amazing.”
In all fairness, this dress is about as amazing as Stephenie Meyer’s writing is readable.
So I’ll give you that.
Any one who was a teen in the 80′s probably wore something equally fugly or worse and thought they were the shit. Just saying.
Even as cosplay this sucks.
Superman not here.
i realize this may be the worst thing i have ever said – but why do only BIG girls like twilight?
I’m not surprised you link to reddit.
Here come the sandwich jokes!
One of a kind? Dear God I hope so. This goes back to one off the rules by which I live: JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN SEW, DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!
I’ve been on this site too long. My first thought was, “only $100?”
Well, it *is* “pre-worn”…
$100 USD, as in USeD.
Those two photos were taken on two different carpets; did she wear it to two different events?! *faints from transferred embarassment*
I think the second photo is in the lobby or something, and the first is inside whatever sort of event this was taken at.
My guess is it’s not a convention because it looks like everyone else is dressed in “normal” clothing.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of Stephenie Meyer
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of Etsy
To say that for destruction this dress
Is also great
And would suffice.
–Robert Frost (slightly adulterated)
Ew, you didn’t actually want to taste her, right?
She made this for a convention. Unless guests of proms or weddings mostly wear street clothes, and the formal events now sell movie posters and lack decorations.
Also, she totally loves melting crayons:
Reminds me of this cakewreck:
And dress went bye-bye, no more dress posted. Maybe we hurt her twihard.
Here’s her profile:
Hello, My name is Tammy and I’m a mother of a four year old son. I’m a huge twihard fan. and love the Steelers. I’ve been told by friends and family I should sell my art and crafts so here goes nothing. We’ll see if it works..lol
Uh, Tammy? My friends say all sorts of things to me, but I know when they’re being snarky. Maybe you don’t. And you really, REALLY shouldn’t give anyone a straight line such as “I should sell my crafts so here goes nothing,” ’cause it can be physically harmful if someone tries to resist a good retort.
Now I’m embarrassed on behalf of the Steelers.
So is it OK to make fun of her as a person for being TOO DAMN OLD to be all Twi-happy?
Teen fiction, folks…TEEN!
I’d like to give her points for having her profile pic with Stan Lee, but playing for BOTH Twi-teams…oh, honey, no…
They were probably thinking; “Hey if we can get her to sell that crap, we won’t be getting it at every gift-giving opportunity!”
Better pics of the “Fire and Ice” dress. And she really, really likes Twilight.
*snort* Not like it’s World of Warcraft, or something important like that… http://games.yahoo.com/photos/the-costumes-of-blizzcon-2011-slideshow/costumes-of-blizzcon-2011-photo-1319315034.html
YOU FIXED IT.
It’s a bun…a bun…
Now see, I’d wear the shit out of that. With a Santa hat (or is that Satan… oh, dear, he won’t be too pleased if I don’t learn to spell. Oh, well, oh well…)
If this were a con masquerade costume, I could almost… well… No. Not even then.
(and I dressed my kid up as Sailor Mini Moon for a convention masquerade, once)
Did he enjoy cosplay?
I was just looking at the photos again, and the first one does look awfully like the pro lounge at the San Diego ComiCon…
AWWWWWWWW! That must have been adorable. I demand pictures.
OK, since you asked so nice…
(that costume has scraps from one of my old wedding dresses in it)
this is as close as I ever got to Toddlers & Tiaras, and in retrospect it was a lot a lot closer than you might think… there was music to edit and choreography…
But she won’t let me sell the costume – even though it’s a size child 6 and she’s 18 now.
SHE?! Augh. Piss on all my dreams, why don’t you. ;(
Just kidding. She’s gorgeous (interpret that in the “adorable” way and not the “brb, fbi” way please) and clearly enjoying the attention, and as well she should…that’s an amazing costume.
Hope I’m not saying any of this with the conviction of someone who frequently browses children’s Halloween costumes online, or anything…
Also, the fact that someone that young can appreciate Sailor Moon, but is now 18, just reminded me of how old I am. D:
I hope you didn’t have a child solely for the purpose of some extremely elaborate trolling. But if so, well played, madam.
I did not like Chibi-usa/Chibi Moon in the anime very much, but oh my god that is ADORABLE.
You are the coolest mom ever, just putting that out there.
I kind of regret putting my glasses on to focus on this… And it doesn’t have anything to do with the subject Twilight or the model… =X
I’m not gonna lie, I appreciated the touch of having the shoes decorated separately.
I would totally wear the shoes! Too bad the listing is gone
The shoes look better than the entirety of the dress. Well, except for the toe stains.
For the briefest moment, I didn’t think those were pictures…
I thought the hoop skirt simply had decorated holes, and those black-and-white images were tattooed thighs being exhibited.
(I would be disappointed, were I not already certain someone out there has thigh tattoos just like this.)
That prom dress would look great on the floor. But I say that about all prom dresses.
Back in design school, we always checked to see if our samples passed the “crumple” test. Needless to say, everything I made ALWAYS passed!
I assume Bella is on the ass portion of the gown.
Isn’t she always?
The ability of buttcheeks to be spread is symbolic of Bella being pulled in two different directions, while the core of her being remains the asshole holding its ground in between.
Am I the only one who noticed the nasty brown toe funk in those shoes??
Welp, since the original listing is down, I checked the link on her shop. Everything rather unworthy of mention…Until these:
Maybe it’s me, but WHY in the world would you buy jeans someone else has painted on? With unknown paint type, meaning you don’t even know if they paint will run away the minute you touch it funny, or get it slightly wet?
I do give props for using the book covers though. I’ll assume she actually read them instead of waiting for the whole movie thing, which is good
I wanna venture a guess this might be from a Twi-Con or a Romantic Times convention. RTs are known for their wacky theme parties, some hosted by publishers or well-known authors.
Hot damn, it’s in my size! Someone buy this for me. I need something to wear to take my son for his first day of pre-school.
I really, really want to go drinking with you.
After I drop my future progeny off wearing the Twilight jeans and alligator head bra, of course.
Aside from the obvious, what really irritates me is the half assed posting. The first picture is obviously from a cellphone, and not a quality one either. The images show two completely different colors, which is just lazy IMO. The shoes need some serious disinfecting, as evidenced by the yellow toe outlines on the soles. Really?!? That’s just disgusting. Just what everyone wants, Etsy athletes foot. Then there’s the grammar in the listing… If you’re going to try and sell shit anywhere on the Internet, at least take the time to have someone, anyone, proofread your listing. Oh, and family and friends tell a lot of “little white lies” when it comes to sparing someone’s feelings. This was obviously one of those.
I’m also a bit confused by her asking price of $100. Being a larger sized girl myself, the material alone for a dress that size would cost nearly that much, then add in the shoes, hoop and labor, and she’s probably paying someone to take it. The melted crayon pieces in her shop are ridiculously overpriced, so I’m shocked that she isn’t asking more for the dress.
Maybe this was a labor of love.
The next owner will probably be able to smell the “labor” when they take those shoes out of the box!
Yeah, but given the horrible drape of the fabric I’m guessing it wasn’t the good quality silk or microfibre satin required by the design. I’m guessing no more than $5 a metre, which still leaves about $75 for everything else.
Good point. I guess I incorrectly assumed that one would use quality materials if they were going to bother in the first place. Although, I doubt there’s anything that could be done to make twilight portraits on a ball gown look classy.
Finally, the perfect outfit for that one spy mission where I need to haul this giant retina scanning machine around some kind of formal gathering!
Though fuck me, maybe for my formal I should have made my obese self a dress out of all the nice-but-too-small dresses I saw. Like a tie skirt, but sadder.
Or you could think of it as a Megazord dress, which would make it awesome
Please tell me that her date was in werewolf makeup on one half and pale and glittery on the other, cause really that would just make my day.
She’s a Twilight fan. She didn’t HAVE a date.
Am I a terrible person for wanting to buy a jar of “Edward Cullen’s Ashes”, seen here:
…and sprinkle them on her?
The glitter ashes just seem like the missing pizazz that this dress so clearly needs.
Having seen the panties printed with Edward’s face in the crotch (originally a TwiTard joke that TwiHards went nuts for, IIR), I’m personally just thankful she chose to place Edward and Jacob’s visages where she did since she decided she had to place them at all.
Small mercies: you learn to count them when dealing with Twilight fandom.
There’s an over-the-topness about this dress that’s almost cute. Almost.
But there’s also a big element of “If you wear this dress in public you are just begging people to make fun of you and you WILL look utterly stupid” going on here as well.
OTOH, someone this dedicated to their fandom is probably getting made fun of at school already. Might as well go all out if you’re not going to be one of the cool kids anyway.
Just a few more floofy underskirts and this would look right at home one of those girls from My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding who actually went to school, and thus were able to attend prom.
Wow, that dress has simultaneously burned my eyes out while giving me brain freeze. But seriously, what was that lady thinking? I’m a Twihard and I wouldn’t wear that dress in a million years (of course, I wouldn’t be able to since I estimate I’m about half her size).
I know just the date for her:
Can anyone give me the real link. I need this for my show down at the local gay bar.
Good lord, you would have thought her eighteen cats would have shredded that abomination by now.
