We tried it. The paper dress thing. It's the thing to do, you know. I pulled tissue paper out of a drawer, located some scotch tape, showed Mazzy some pictures of Mayhem for reference and then we got to work.
We made the top of the dress out of the tissue paper, using tape to hold it together and tying a ribbon around the center to give it some shape. Mazzy was way more involved in each step of the process than I expected, dictating colors and demanding that she be in charge of the tape dispenser.
It was also her idea to use the ribbon around the waist.
When we were done with the top, Mazzy wanted to pair it with her rainbow tutu and I said, "No! That's against the rules! We must make this dress entirely out of paper or else this is a wasted exercise!"
Except I didn't say that. I just let her do what she wanted to do because this isn't a competition, right?
So, we made half a paper dress.
