Shopping For Karena's Wedding Dress (Part Two)

Guest Poster Karena

I'm here in the Starfleet Mall with my mother Queen Diana to look for a wedding dress for myself when I get married to Wesley Crusher.

I say 'wedding dress' in a very loose term, of course. Being an amazon, it will have to be a traditional battle outfit, with a breastplate and spear.

That's romance for you!

Currently, we are in the 'Amazon' shop, run by Helena. We are going through possible items that might be suitable.


"Oh, I don't think that spear is sharp enough!" says my mother, "We need it razor sharp to show what a tough woman my daughter is."

"We can always have it sharpened for you, Queen Diana." Helena insists, "We can make it so sharp it will cut the air in two. Now come and see these dresses."

She leads us to a section named Amazonian Wedding Attire.

My mother's face lights up.

"Ah, now this is the sort of thing I've been looking for." the Queen comments, "Don't you agree, daughter?"

"It looks lovely." I answer, "The ideal sort of thing to cast fear into any Life Servant."

"It will need a breastplate, though." my mother adds.

"I have the very thing." Helena answers, and brings out a matching plate.

"Perfect!" Diana says,while looking at some weapons "Now how about that sword?"

I go to the changing room, put all three on.

When I come out, both my mother and Helena agree that they look just right. As I wave the sword, I look so fearful, a customer about to enter the shop suddenly runs away.

"I can see your daughter is going to have a very special honeymoon night." says Helena, with a smile.

We are about to leave, when I see a special line of bridal clothes called "Valkyries."

"What are those?" I ask.

"Ah." answers Helena, "That is a very special line of bridal clothing for top amazons."

My mother is offended.

"My daughter is a Princess and is therefore a top amazon." she says angrily, "Let's see what it is."

I try it out, and know this will be my wedding day battle dress.

"I want this one, mother." I say.

"I agree, Karena." she replies, "It suits you perfectly. What a magnificent outfit."

We pack it all up and leave the shop, very satisfied.

Wes will get a surprise on his wedding day!


Editors Note: For obvious reasons, Karena's wedding day battle dress will not be shown here until the day she gets married. We can't let anyone see it beforehand, especially Wes. It's bad luck!

I'm thinking that poor Wes may be in for a lot more bad luck than seeing his "blushing" bride's wedding dress may bring him!

Then again, couldn't happen to a finer Ensign!

I kind of like the dress.

Epiphany said...

JLP, This was hilarious. "Being an amazon, it will have to be a traditional battle outfit, with a breastplate and spear." I laughed out loud!

Suddenly I'm thinking of the old Bugs Bunny toon with the Marriage of Figaro!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Jon, you haven't seen the dress. That was just an example Helena shown Karena. The actual dress will be shown on the wedding day.

Epiphany, what else do you expect an amazon to wear?

Oh my goodness! Is Wesley gonna be in trouble with that spear? LOL Hey, I should have had one at the wedding.


HUGS! and great pics!

Not quite sure on the appropriate attire for the guests with a bride in leather. smile

jean-luc-picard: As Karena must surely have noticed by now, I am unable to foil this marriage and convince her to..ahem...enter my universe. But I just received a space age invitation this morning to the wedding. I will be as humble as I can through the proceedings!

On another note, while I have been unable to board the USS Enterprise, I wanted to acknowledge your caring and concern for Gunner Gillespie's battle with cancer. He is aware of your kind words and we are very grateful! I shall re-board as soon as possible!

Merlyn Gabriel said...

Woah, now I can't wait to see the dress she wears.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Tammy, it's very appropriate bridal attire for an amazon.

Michael, you'll get your invite. Just don't say anything when "Is there any reason why..." comes up.

Celadon, I tried to get to see 'Hamlet', but every performance was sold out.

It is certainly interesting for me to read the article. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more soon.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

I love these dresses! I really like the prom dresses that you use as the promo pic? Designer and year? It’s definitely not your Vintage Wedding Dresses.
