alright losers the dress is blue and gold and i have evidence to prove it
here is the ORIGINAL PHOTO. i’ve taken color samples DIRECTLY from it that will very obviously SHOW the dress is blue and gold. just from these selections you can tell the dress is a variety of blue hues and brown hues. BUT WAIT THERES MORE
so let me further explain why this is such an issue for everyone to interpret. see that MASSIVE glare in the top right corner? yes, my friends, this is what happens when you don’t focus your cameras. whoever took this picture obviously did not focus the color on the dress, therefore giving the dress an eerie and almost surreal color that confuses your eyes. the reason for the lack of focus being an issue is WHITE BALANCE. if you don’t already know, the white balance of a camera shot is dependent on the whitest object in the picture. in this scenario, it is literally a light, which REALLY throws off white balance. therefore, all other whites in the picture are darkened or lightened based on that shade of white in the light itself.
SO, i’ve gone to photoshop to further show why this is a blue and gold dress. I’ve even heightened the contrast to prove there are colors in this dress.
this is at contrast +100 and brightness +120. i’ve taken color samples that are very, VERY significantly gold and light blue. THIS is where the center of the dress could be mistaken for white.
and this is at contrast +100 and brightness -120. all of the color samples are DARK BROWN (fun fact: dark gold is also known as brown) and blue samples. since the browns are so dark at this setting, it COULD be mistaken for black. i guess.
if this STILL. doesnt prove anything to you, let me add that (in the scenario that this dress is not reflecting the colors of another source), there is NO WAY that either black or white would turn gold or blue when changing the brightness and contrast or any other setting. black and white DO NOT MIX with the color spectrum in that fashion. if you were to take an image made up of black and white and up the contrast, the image would go into different grayscales or a solid, rigid black and white photo. so UNLESS this dress is reflecting something out of shot (which, i should add, is extremely unlikely), THE DRESS HAS TO BE BLUE AND GOLD.
tbh i dont even know why this so hard to understand. i knew it was blue and gold from the beginning. i literally can’t even see the dress having any black even if the brightness were to be all the way down. i can possibly see white, considering it’s a shiny material and there’s a very high possibility white would reflect another color, but i’m almost positive it’s blue and gold and i dont understand why everyones between white and gold or blue and black. like what. yes its called an OPTICAL ILLUSION my friends, its obviously going to mess with your eyes, but take it from a photoshop pro that this is most definitely blue and gold and none of that mumbo jumbo debate over

Some photos my Christmas Angel themed dress when worn! I’m really happy with how this turned out. I hope we get snow soon, so I can get pictures of it in that environment.
This dress is made from forty yards of tulle (a whole bolt!), five yards of organza, LED lights, five yards of christmas garlands, wreath mesh, and fake flowers. It laces up the back and has a long tulle train. It is not a fire hazard.
The dress was made and worn by me. It took about two weeks to make. I have two blog posts about the inspiration behind this and how I made it. They are posted here! And I have videos on the process posted here!

Here are the pictures from yesterday! It was such a rushed mess to get these before it got dark so i’m really happy some of them turned out! The whole set is posted here.
Seeing these make dragging this beast of a dress through the snow and braving the cold very worth it.
The dress was made and worn by me! I made it from forty yards of tulle, fifteen meters of LED lights, wreath mesh, and glittery garlands. The bodice is boned and laces up the back with gold ribbons. The whole thing was inspired by a christmas angel my family had when I was younger.
