Deanna Fashion Project Top 10

7. Wedding Gown  (Nemesis)

Somebody should have attacked them with a steamer before they took pictures but this dress is a culmination of all things Princess Deanna and her fairy tale romance and I. Love. It.

I love that she picks a dress that would work just as well for cotillion. I love that it is pale pink. I love that it is satin. I love that it is covered with cascading roses. I love that it looks like a cake. I love that there are ruffles and asymmetry. I love that everyone else is in their dress uniform because this is a Starfleet wedding, and they are going to have another wedding on Betazoid, but it’s going to be traditional, as in naked, and she was like guys, I love you and I love Starfleet for bringing us together, but I am going to have a fairy tale princess wedding and you can’t stop me, and I love knowing that no one would even think to try because this right here is SO Deanna. And I even love that those silly Love Boat dress uniforms sort of fit in with the fairy tale (though they also sort of look like waiters but what can you do). 

(Also I love Mrs. Riker and Mr. Troi and I wish the entire movie was about them because the only other thing I really like in it is Shinzon’s crey crey clothes.)

A message for Riker:

(I hope everyone knows that I would NEVER want to abuse the fact that Riker follows this tumblr. I’m so happy that he does and wouldn’t want to jeopardize that. If I ever do use this blog as a way to contact Riker, I swear it’ll be for something important, as this is. I’m sure Catt agrees!)

So, Riker, I know you’re aware of Ethan from therikerproject. On behalf of Ethan and his friend Steve (who mainly runs the blog), I have a question for you.

Ethan’s birthday and Christmas aren’t a very good time for him. A few days ago (10/11/12, I think?) he reached 35 DAYS CUT FREE! (When he reached 30 days, we had a sort-of party on the blog as well as tinychat.) Sadly, he slipped up and I’m sure he’s going through some rough things now.

Now, here’s what we’re hoping: If you could take a few seconds to send a message to him on tumblr, it would be so amazing. If you have time, an email, a video, a phone call, anything would mean the absolute world to him. I don’t know Ethan personally, I’ve only talked to him via the blog and tinychat, but I know that he is a wonderful person and he should get all of the wonderful things in life. He doesn’t deserve to feel like he should harm himself.

I hope you see this, Riker, and I hope you’re able to get in contact with Ethan!


P.S. This is the original post from therikerproject where Steve proposed we ask Riker for this.
