My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Dress

Finally got a chance to catch up with Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and found it strangely mesmerising. Inspired by the spectacular, entrail-rearranging giganti-dresses featured in the series, I’ve designed one of my very own to celebrate my upcoming nuptials to TV’s very own Sue Perkins

…Please note, both the Greggs sign and the layer of TARDISes light up, and my crown contains a fire extinguisher.

BREAKING NEWS: My delightful bride to be, Sue Perkins, had the following to say: “Wow. Just, wow. It’s everything I could have wanted and more. I’ll get the registrar and meet you at the nearest outdoor retailers.”

Sue went on to add: “i’m certainly not letting you see mine. i want it to be a surprise. Just think Cell Block H meets Top Gear”

She so sexy.

    Ace! What are you gonna call your first black eye?

    Sue Perkins is a very lucky lady. But I think your crown could be bigger. If it’s not heavy enough to permanently push your eyebrows into your eye sockets it doesn’t count!

      You’re right! It probably won’t even cause any fetching scars. I should add some razor blades to the design…

    Is that bolton skyline or bolt on skyline? Either way it’s fab and so unexpected. I’ve ordered the Converse, or possibly the converse, though I’m not sure what the converse of Bolton is.

      Surely the bleak grey colours and factory belching smoke is a big giveaway! Yep, it’s the Bolton skyline, my sexy town of birth.
