The Battle-Weary was re-blocked to keep me warm with this dress on.

I was so very excited to be able to wear this dress again. I've had it for 16 years... why yes, since my highschool grad.

Back in the day.

This is the dollar store mask I upgraded for the event.  The sparkles already matched my dress perfectly.  Removed the useless ties and added a stick to hold it up with.  Most importantly, I crocheted several motifs (mostly Irish style) using black crochet cotton and leftover Montague lace from the shawl and glued them on. I'd debated doing something more complex - such as a full lace mask - but I decided to be realistic. Even these did not glued on until 2 hours before the event.
