My third entry for @BumbleBeeMe 's Yule Ball contest! There's always something particularly magical about Christmas lights, especially when they're just a little unfocused and become all these blurry little halos... (forgetting to put on my glasses is a surefire way to achieve this effect, but that sounds less romantic).
The dress was partially inspired by this Christmas fairy skirt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWB4MTZxG9E
Also the tree is 100% inspired by @DiardanRose who mentioned using the peacock feather for their "Poinsettia Christmas" tree. Kudos for brilliance!
