"Uh, that's pretty sheer, isn't it?" said a family member. Wait for it...
Really, it would be cheaper to bedazzle my bed sheet ;)
But seriously, this over the top, bright and sparkly get-up is standard at this sort of event. Of course I wouldn't wear something like this outside of the ballroom... which is exactly why this competition is going to be a lot of fun. Because I don't want to influence anyone, I'll hold my opinion back for now. I get to try the dresses on for size this Thursday and will get some input from my teacher. Teacher's direction with regards to costuming has been "the more skin the better!"
