Sometimes, you see something — an outfit or a purse or a pair of shoes — that is so completely you, you immediately want to go buy it.
And then you find out that it’s crazy expensive, and so far out of your budget that it becomes painful to even think about.

But since the aforementioned space geek was Stacie of Stars for Streetlights, she knew better than to even think about buying the dress, and instead decided to make her very own crafty DIY version, as featured below.
The results were stellar — and she didn’t have to spend an astronomical amount.
