Well, after being afraid to do it, I've decided I'm going to do something I've always wanted to do and crossplay Scarlett O'Hara.
I'm either going to do the prayer dress or instead do Pauline's purple ballgown from Champagne Charlie:
I'm planning on doing this at either GenCon or Cos & Effect next year, though that might not be doable since I need to lose a fair bit of weight before I want to do this. That's progressing though.
But I know two things: I want to go all out on this, including the corset, and the hoop needs to be 'sufficiently' large since that'll make my waist look smaller, plus I am a bit taller.
Looking forward to this!
