Sorry this took so very long.  I can only say, I'm so glad 2016 is over. XD

Me: "At long last!  Owari, you can open your gifts.  I finished and sent our gifts out."

Owari: "OMG I can't believe how long I have waited.  We literally ended up with a pair of puppies in the time it took you to finish the gifts you sent out.  And we got a surprise wig in the mail that I won't complain about, because it really suits me, don't you think?"

Me: "My apologies Owari.  Things just took longer than expected." Embarassed Sad

Owari: "I suppose it's ok.  I am excited to see what CornflowerBlue and Twiggy sent."

Owari: "There are so many little packages! They are super cutely wrapped too. Pups! Don't you go messing with them!"

Me: "CB wrote a very nice Christmas card too. And I have a vague memory of some chocolates that disappeared in the foggy haze while family was visiting. I wish it was a dream, but my hips tell me it wasn't."

Owari: "Tsk Tsk. If you just didn't eat, like me (except for the occasion sanguineous sip, of course) you wouldn't need to worry."

Me: "I love your ideas, but I love food, and especially chocolates far more."

Owari: *Squeeee!* "I have a familiar! Look how cute he is. He's called Tweakie P.. or maybe Coco, but I really like Tweakie P better."

Pups: .......

Owari:  "Had to leave the eyepatch off. I thought my allergies would go, but Tweakie is hypoallergenic, so I can hug him and whisper my nefarious orders to him."

Me: "I think Rambu and Black Russian are a bit jealous Owari."

Owari: Whaat?  Knock it off pups! Minions shouldn't fight amongst each other. Tweakie is new, so he gets hugs to forge a powerful familial bond."

Me:  "How about the next present?  What cute Kitty ears!"

Owari:  "NekoMata Ears!  They remind me of dear mother.  Did you know she ate an entire wedding party once?"

Me: "Whaaat!!?  Do I need to be worried Owari?"

Owari:  "Oh no.  I like you. Plus you're already married. It wouldn't be much fun.  Do you think these ears make me look fierce?"

***After opening several small and one large package with stockings, a lovely pearl necklace with a black flower (you can't see in the photo) some amazing coolcat boots, and an incredible dress by CB, we have the reveal.***

Owari:  "How fine I look!  This dress is perfect.  It's elegant, mature, and yet still youthful and far more comfortable than my old dress, even though it was also lovely.  The skirt is a separate too, so I could wear a different one if I wanted.  Best of all, it is going to make Ende jealous."

Me: "It's stunning.  Beautiful workmanship, and all the accessories look wonderful together.  I think it suits you especially, and Ende will be happy for you."

Owari:  "... If you say so.  She needs to get out of her coffin soon. I could have showed her."

Me:" Ahh... she will. But she's still sleeping off the holiday bender." confused

Owari:  "Oh!  What a mess. The boys are playing in the holiday paper.  Stop messing around, Minions!"

Rambu-Pang: "Kookoo Coco Puff has stolen my pants.  Give them back!"

Me:  "Now who's going to clean up this mess?"

Owari: "I vote the minions do it.  Tweakie, leave Black Russian alone! You don't want him to bite you, do you."

Me: *Sigh*  Thank you again, CB. It was a lovely card, and the gifts were perfect.

The dress is perfect for her.

I did manage to get a photo with her necklace to the front. I put it together so late, I didn't realize it. Everything was really perfect for her. It was an excellent job from CornflowerBlue.

I'm glad that Owari likes her new outfit and familiar. I laughed when I saw the puppy's pants on him.  When I came across the black and gold fabric, I knew I had solved the problem of clashing with Owari's eyes. Very Happy

This was my first time trying one of Requiem's patterns.  It's the Rococo Hime Lolita dress pattern.  Digital download is awesome for instant gratification: https://www.etsy.com/listing/213524020/rococo-hime-lolita-doll-clothes-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_18  I've been waiting for Owari to open her gifts so I could post my review of my experience with using this pattern for a Dal, coming soon.

I tried to make a black hooded capelet to go with it, but my resize ended up a bit too small.  Since I was already late in finishing up, you got just the cat ears.  Sorry!

Edit: Oops typing on phone. Hit send rather than click the text box.

The outfit looks amazing. I am impressed and will have to check out her patterns. I am usually a make my own type, but this year I failed miserably. (Partially dealing with a very slippery fabric, partially working with a sewing machine for the first time in ages.)

No prob on the caplet. It would have been cute, I am sure, but I understand being late and trying to get through it. -_- I was so late this year.. Shocked
