Butterfly Wedding Dress by Firefly-Path Butterfly Wedding Dress by Firefly-Path
Follow Firefly Path costuming & make-up on Facebook - www.facebook.com/FireflyPath
Our bridal customer commissioned us to design and create a butterfly theme wedding gown for her fairy tale wedding. 
Top - 
Silver vines and flowers grow across her bodice and puff sleeve. White vines lace the sleeve together. 
Skirt - 
Butterfly peplum wings fold over the tattered glitter tulle skirt. Each wing has a single crystal droplet falling from it's tip. We made the wing peplums in the same shape as the actual wings. 
Accessories - 
We created a crystal and silver circlet with butterfly antenna sprouting from underneath. Her hair accessory of wispy silver vines entangled with tiny flowers, gems, and ribbons~

Over the years I have received a lot of questions on how I make these type of wings. The PDF tutorial is available on my Etsy store (www.etsy.com/shop/FireflyPath) I hope you all like it!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Sorry for copying.

So white and magical-looking. Definitely looks like it came out of a fairy tale. I love the poofiness of the skirt; it looks almost like a cloud.
