My sister-in-law, Olga, decorates Reception Halls, Ballrooms, churches and such for special events such as weddings and Quinceanera's and other special celebrations and she was working on a Quinceanera that had a theme of Zebra stripes along with the color Magenta. She had 4 flat carousel horse shaped wood cutout blanks that she asked me to paint like Zebras. I did just that and see how beautifully she created the backdrop set for the Quinceanera and her escort, flanked by 2 of the painted Zebras. That ballroom looked so just don't do it justice.She did an outstanding, beautiful job.

Yay!!! Here is my finished homemade dress form!!!!!
I think it looks pretty good even if I do say so myself. I dressed it up in the bustier I dyed and decked it out with some vintage jewelry. So, I guess I don't have to buy a dress form after all......just make it myself!
