Alicia Paulson is getting very close to the heart of the matter of ritual labor.

She became a fulltime crafter after a terrible accident put her into bed for months. She got out of bed. She got a store. She got a blog. She wrote two books.

Now she is waiting to adopt a baby girl, and she is making outfit after outfit for this longed-for but still invisible being.

She has knitted what many commenters think is the most beautiful dress they've ever seen, and it is very, very fine aside from its powerful affect. It is creating the little girl it waits for.

Ritual labor is form-conferring. And, as RuPaul says, it's not about the drag, it's about the magic.

Dear Naomi Watts. You were Kidman's Oscar date once the year Cruise dumped her. As I recall you wore something with excellent pale lace or chiffon. Now you're heading into Sharon Stone/Sunset Boulevard territory -- Stone, the one other actress who was wearing Galliano. Dude, this is a terrible dress. And would be on somebody whose vibe wasn't already kind of Melanie Wilkes. I just don't know what to tell you, and the Fug Girls are way too mean with the polterwang and all. Is this one of those lost-the-baby-weight-desperado dresses? You'll be wanting to avoid being pecked to death by the other chickens, and this dress is just....bawk bawk. Tragic.
