A Great Movie!

Alright everybody, why haven't you seen this movie yet? I'm so surprised at its box office sales right now. It was such a good fairy tale- adventure, action, romance! The actors (Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sienna Miller, Rupert Everett) were amazing. I loved Robert De Niro! And the "dead brothers"- hahaha. You just have to go see it. Seth and I went on a date last weekend (hooray- those are always great to have) and went to this movie. It was so fun, one of my favorites from the summer. I don't want to talk it up too much, but I really just want to encourage people to go see it. The official movie site is http://www.stardustmovie.com/ . Go to it and see clips of the movie or their photo gallery. Anyway, it's definitely going to be one that I buy and I don't say that often. In fact I think I need to go see it again for "research purposes". :) I fell in love with a certain dress of hers (Yvaine) in the movie. Actually both dresses she wears are FABULOUS! Although the silver one is amazing and is more true to her character of being a fallen star I can't help myself about her blue one! I mean come on!... it it must have at least 15-20 yards of my favorite cobalt blue colored taffeta and deep blue velvet. yummm. :)
So here are a two pictures showing her blue dress. Get ready to drool. I am going to make this dress for me for Halloween this year! (you can drool on me when I wear it :) I know I'm no size 2 like Claire Danes, but I think it could still look fabulous. I kept telling myself that I should use my vampire dress again since I spent so long on it, but again... I can't help it. :) Sorry Seth. I know I kept telling you that same thing too about wearing my vampire dress again. Did you really believe me? I think I might have for an few days.


My friend Kristen, is going to make the silver star dress (here and here) for herself for Halloween so we'll make a cute pair. (If only we were in the same state still- sob, sniff, sniff.) Maybe I'll have time to make Tristan's (Charlie Cox) costume for Seth (here). :)

Anyway, I'm so excited. I'm going to get right to work as soon as I finish Kendyl's mini vampire dress. :) She wants it gold though so it wont be too spooky. She said she wants to be able to wear it at Christmas too. silly girl. My fingers and just tingling here imagining sewing all that velvet and taffeta. ooo ooo Maybe I'll even dye my hair platinum like Claire Dane's in the movie! eek... Oh I am such a dork! :)

Nah- You could sew it and just have short hair. No biggie.

You could lend me the vampire dress and then you wouldn't have to feel so bad about not using it again yet. I know, I know, I am so so generous that way. I am pretty sure my girls want to do Halloween with your girls this year anyway.

Kevin and I can't wait to see it. We both read the book this past year and loved it, so we're curious to see what kind of embellishments they did for the movie.

You're going to be stunning, I can't wait to see you and your costume! What fun.
