Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

I've seen my wedding dress!

Well, an unfinished white cotton version, but still! It's more than I've had before!

Mom came to New York on Sunday afternoon and left this morning (well, actually, I don't think her plane has even taken off yet, but I dropped her off at the airport at 11). On Sunday the first thing we did was go to her hotel room and try on The Dress.

It was pretty much exactly what I wanted :-D The dress needed to be shortened in some areas (because she was cobbling together several patterns that turned out to be more ridiculous than they originally looked, she just made the dress as the patterns said to, rather than trying to miniaturize the patterns on the fly for me), but nothing drastic. The way my dad has been carrying on for awhile, telling me that Mom was freaking out about the dress, I was beginning to think I had to start shopping for a back up dress.

Nope. It's going to be sweet.

We also figured out how the beading is going to work. Hopefully that will turn out as awesomely in real life as it looks in my head right now.

Yesterday we went sightseeing. I took her to Rockefeller Center to see the Christmas tree and then we went window shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue before we went on our tour of Radio City Music Hall. We both agreed that it was much more enjoyable for us than going to see the actual show would have been. Now, I'm sure the Radio City Christmas Spectacular is, in fact, spectacular, but Mom and I are very academic types, so getting to hear about the history of the building and seeing the fabulous architecture up front was a treat for us (especially since Mom is a huge fan of the art deco look).

After that we went to Times Square since there was "a comic shop" there that Dan wanted her to find and take a picture of. Of course, he didn't give her any more details, but luckily I have actually visited an awesome comic shop in Times Square, so we went to the one that I knew. We were also going to go through the Garment District to find some netting for my veil, but we showed up at the information kiosk at 4:05 when it closed at 4. Boo on that.

It's been a fun couple of days, but tiring as well. Thankfully I have the rest of today to slack off and hang out with Billy before heading back to work for the rest of the week (three days in a row of eight hour shifts - it's been weeks since I've worked one eight hour shift, let alone three days in a row!).
