Well I have to admit- she looks about 15 years younger when you wash all the gunk off her face.

The make up she is in this time definitely pushes some boundaries for me but shows nicely on stage. I almost had a heart attack when the lovely lady at Mac pulled out black eye shadow for my 12 year old but after i took a step back and Saw it with the dress I kinda got over it.(I still double take if I am talking to her face to face with it on)


But yes she is turning 13 on Dec 30th (so shoulda held her in another day) and turns a u14 30 hours later hehe.

I'm so totally in denial that the girls are U14 next year!

Sabre looked great at the O. Rachel is choosing to learn new steps rather than go to Cara this year. We may try Garden State. Otherwise, 4Ps will be our first feis. I'm just hoping she doesn't grow between now and then. (I'll definitely drive to Manassas to alter her new dress, rather than our local ladies.)

Thanks- I wish I had thought to get more photos while they were all goofing off earlier in the day...I always semi forget I have a camera at competitions.

I think Garden state is a nice feis- and sashes vs trophies in prelim last year ;)

I took a few, but they're all Teelin folks (so no help to you). I did so well at Coyle, but the stress of the O (just get it over with already!) kept my camera in my bag most of the time.

Love the dress and fantastic job with the crystals. Your dd's makeup looks nice too, not overdone at all.

Man, she looks so grown up. As others have said, she's gorgeous in the dress and whole get up. I don't think it's overdone but it certainly does make her so much more mature looking. She's growing into a beautiful young lady.

Her dress really is "stunning!" It's so beautiful. It's so cool that she designed it herself, too. Her and I started talking on the IDM website around 4 or 5 years ago. It's crazy to see her all grown up now when she was such a wee little girl back then. She is beautiful and the makeup is not over-done. I think it's very classy and good for the stage.

I also make them and can include colored stones to coordinate with your dress. [Note: the colored stones are not the largest of the Swarovski sizes.]
