POE6 Post 50 Angel Dessous, Egoisme, Immerse
Ramses Meredith of Egoisme created this lovely imitation of a pepperminty candy cane for a dress for the season .. but I can tell you that licking it does not give you minty fresh breath.
Nando Korobase of Angel Dessous provides snowflakes and fur and sparkle and long gloves to put the magic into the night and sequins and ruffles from Lilly Juno of Immerse dance their way across your dreams.
I like to take a whole wardrobe when I go out so I can change costumes and play any role that happens to present itself. I just think it makes the whole evening more fun and you can share your costumes!!
That and … I tend to spill on myself . . . a lot …

Ooyukichioo of IrodorI gifts us with this fabulous outfit that is absolutely gorgeous! I feel like a painting when I walk around in it.
I so want one in real life. I want to calmly walk into the garden and make all the neighbours jealous. I know they would be jealous because that is how it all goes down in my head and whatever my head wants, it just goes with. I mean like the lack of participation from the outside world is irrelevant. Facts are irrelevant . . .

You should never assume that people aren’t paying attention.

I like wandering around in the snow in my evening gowns because it works much better for your self esteem. The thing is … if you have no friends, no life, no lover, no social life … the only reason that sucks is that other people know and they point at you when you go to Walmart and say things like “Look there is that loser again who has not friends, no live, no lover, no social life.”
The trick is to fool them.
So you get all dressed up in expensive gowns and get your hair done and stuff and you go out and you wander around in the snow. People either think you are waiting for your lover for a romantic tryst or that you are a beautiful recluse and they should go home and write a novel like Wuthering Heights because they just saw you and they will never be able to get you out of their mind OR breathe again unless they either paint you or write a novel that will become a classic and be made into some kind of an HBO movie that everyone will rave about for years to come.
Thank heavens I had this dress from Hannah Daviau of DaneMarkZ!
Kawaii Dolls, Exquisite, TrueNorthDesigns, Jewelry by Jake
Catlyn Sahara of Kawaii Dolls went pink for Christmas. I love her. I think red and green are so overdone – the whole world should be pink – ballet pink actually but I will accept any shade of pink. I could be a Christmas tree in this dress with my head one giant angel star at the top. I think we should be Christmas trees more at Christmas time. Everyone does angels and elves and Santa blah blah … let’s just be trees. LOVE. IT.
Jake Kearny of Jewlry by Jake came up with this lovely music box which I shrunk down for the purpose of the magical photography you are witnessing.
Dellybean North’s piano for TrueNorthDesigns is my second favourite colour – white AND this piano is magical. I adore that is plays Christmas music and not just tinkle Christmas music like awesome Christmas music and there are all these options with the menu that I actually had to go and get a pocket protector I felt so geeky.
Mericatherine Quennell of Exquiste packed her little POE stocking so freaking full of jewellery that you will think you died and went to heaven. She includes men and women stuff AND these three awesome proposal boxes that so inspired me I went right down to Noobyville and started asking people to marry me. (I believe that sex should only happen AFTER you are married)
Not Being There
For my fathers funeral this Saturday we are allowed to say or write about an event in rememberance of him. My sister has thought of some really fun events in our life, but for the first time ever, the writer is mute. No Word and Peace, Draakje Dailey. In fact, I can’t think of a single remarkable event and I can’t figure out why. I reckon it’s likened to those times you think of something witty to say, after a person has walked away from you. But in the middle of the night, I did decide what I would write for the Reverend to read. And it’s right there in the title, I am going to write about his not being there. That is the greatest lesson my father taught me.
Dress: Snowpaws, Epais **Peace on Earth 6, item#036** .
You see, my father was a pediatrician. On Christmas mornings me, my sisters and my bother (yes, meant to spell it that way), weren’t allowed to peek to see if Santa had stopped by until my father was standing next to the tree taking pictures. Seems a practical matter, doesn’t it? But most Christmas mornings my father was at the hospital, so we would sit anxiously on the bottom step, waiting for my father to return home. Most children don’t really have a sense of real world focus, we tend to think about the world’s reflection of us, not about how we are seen in the world, or in other words, we oft believe the world revolves around our needs, not taking into consideration others. One Christmas, I think I was about six or so, it was an extra long wait stretching almost into the afternoon. Being selfish, and petulant at that age, I asked my mom why dad always had to go to the hospital on Christmas day. Hugging me close, she told me “Because sickness doesn’t take a holiday. And some children don’t get to wait on the bottom step of their home to see if Santa visited them.” I think I aged to adulthood that day, or at least got pretty close to it because I never looked at Christmas the same again.
The take from? Sometimes the best gift a parent can give a child is to not be there. It not only makes the parent a human, it teaches the child, though you love them dearly, no one can possibly be there for them every time they are needed. As for my dad? I can’t help but think he is in heaven surrounded with some of the children he has seen over the years. Some probably made it home for Christmas, perhaps some did not and as they laugh and celebrate this holiday, I hope he will look down fondly at me. as I sit patiently on the bottom step waiting for when I will see him again.

I took the Schmelf out into the wood to intro him to his cousin “stumpy” but he failed to see the humour in it. And before you all go getting on me for making fun of the fact he is so small, you should hear what he says to me about being a giant. And he never lets up on how come I don’t have bigger breasts and my ass is too flat and why don’t I show more cleavage. Evidently his idea of a “good girl” and Santa’s are not exactly the same thing.
I am not sure which of the reindeer this one was. Plantzer or Schmonner or Piston or something …I am not great with names. Who can tell any of them apart? I just called him “Fluffy” all day.
I sort of thought we have the whole Snow White, Rose Red thing going on and so you know dwarves/elves … we would be in the same ball park. Schmelf was really offended and asked me if he even looked like he “hi-hoed” it into work or hung out with someone called “Sneezy” or “Dopey.”
You know those moments when you really have a smart ass answer and then you think maybe you should just keep your mouth shut? I had one of those moments, thought better of it, and told him yes, I could see it. He looked exactly like that kind of elf.
He asked me if I wanted an apple for dessert, said some old lady had given it to him ….
