In a darkish red... what do you think?

You have been invited to attend

Your preasance is requested at

you are cordually invited to

and anyone living in Hull (or ull) if you could recomend a good place to have it... like a pub or a hall or somehing then that would help loads

Posted:Nice dress.... would look FAB in a red, but not tooo dark tho, or it will look dull, but then not to red, or you look like a tart. hope that helps.

havent got a pic yet, stay tuned

and i think the sentence "you are cordually invited to" is probably the best one in an invite!

hope that helps! hug

Posted:i agree about the "you are cordually invited to" bit



i think the dress would look nice if made from dark ish red satin, as it would be dark red in colour, yet it's be a red-y colour where the light highlights it due to the satin-ness


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

For images take a look here.

Fantastic theme smile

Posted:yea I found that Image and I was gonna use it if I couldnt find any others... I had the great Idea of printing them off on REALLY good paper and rolling them up and tying ribbon round them like a parchment (red ribbon to go with my dress of course!)



And yes I AM A GIRL.... i wish everyone would stop thinking Im a gay bloke

If your going to use something simalar to that, get a femamine mask to put on the opposite side, speaking of masks have you got once planned for yourself? If you dont find a nice looking mask you could use a large fan, wich would be very fun to hide behind and flick around lol. If you go for a simple dress, go for a simple mask (and dont forget an equally simple hair style to continue the theme.

This sounds so cool, hope it goes really well for ya!

There is a way around that...

Try putting your gender on your profile, and adding some pictures of you to your gallery... wink


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
