If only I knew a kid young enough to mold into one… 2 agree Reply I agree; he's such a cutie! 1 agrees Reply he was amazing 0 agree Reply That cake at the end is awesome. It's definitely opera inspired, I can see Madame Butterly art on the bottom tier. I wonder if it's all Puccini? 2 agree Reply La Bohème, Tosca, Turandot, Madame Butterfly… definitely Puccini-Cake! ^^ I love it… but I don't think I would like it as a wedding cake… thinking about how all these love stories end… :s 1 agrees Reply I love that it exists. Yeah not very wedding-y, but still romantic and opera-geek! I agree Tosca and Turandot and all deserve some recognition, not just Boheme! 1 agrees Reply OMG that dress! Is that Dana, of voi spinning fame? 0 agree Reply Yep, it sure is. More to come on that dress soon! 2 agree Reply OMG yes it is Dana! I know her as she is a fellow bellydancer. Not well enough to be invited to the wedding, but I do know a bit about it. It was a steampunk themed wedding and Dana helped make the dress herself out of dyed silk parachutes from the military surplus store! I'm sure she will tell y'all about it. 0 agree Reply I just went through the pictures on flickr…Holy sweet baby jesus! She got me into belly dancing with voi though I don't have her video. That dress is amazing! I can't wait to hear about it and see MOAR!!! 0 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
