Gravitational Waves Chart

These plots show the signals of gravitational waves detected by the twin LIGO observatories at Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington. The signals came from two merging black holes, each about 30 times the mass of our sun, lying 1.3 billion light-years away.
The top two plots show data received at Livingston and Hanford, along with the predicted shapes for the waveform. These predicted waveforms show what two merging black holes should look like according to the equations of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, along with the instrument's ever-present noise. Time is plotted on the X-axis and strain on the Y-axis. Strain represents the fractional amount by which distances are distorted.
As the plots reveal, the LIGO data very closely match Einstein's predictions.

Shenova's Gravitational Wave dress and tie are stylish for any occasion, even if your particular event is not with the Master of Waves (as ours was). The dress pictured is a small but was altered.

It’s perfect!

This dress is absolutely everything I hoped it would be and more!! I wore it for a big event at work and it worked wonderfully. I purchased an XL after measuring because I didn’t want it to be clingy (I wear an l/xl in most clothes). The fabric would be good for summer too.
Thank you so much for an awesome dress! So excited to wear it again!

Bought with Matching Tie for Rehearsal Dinner

I bought this dress with a matching gravitational wave tie for my husband through Zazzle. They both arrived with ample time to wear to my best friend's wedding. Nothing says love like two black holes forever unified.

This is the best dress EVER!

There are so many reasons to love this dress, but I'll name my favorites here:
1. The fit is flattering and absolute perfection. No joke, this is one the best body contouring dresses I've ever worn.
2. The fabric is high quality, and obviously, the print is inspired and fun!
3. The craftsmanship is impeccable.
4. This dress does not wrinkle and is very easy to pack in a suit case.

I purchased this event for my husband's awards ceremony, but I am absolutely certain that I will wear this over and over again.

Custom thesis defense dress - perfection!

I'm defending my Ph.D. this spring and wanted a dress that was custom for my defense topic. The work I'm presenting has to do with detecting malaria in the blood, so a red blood cell dress was perfect for me. I ended up choosing the red blood cell design with the style of the gravitational waves dress, and it's perfection! Holly worked with me for a tailored size since my sizing was a little on the small side of an XS. Not only was Holly very communicative and quick to respond to e-mails and requests, but the dress itself is fantastic! It's just what I was looking for, I can hardly wait to defend in it!
