I brought the underlayer skirt that I also wore under my clock skirt for my steampunk costume Saturday (to try it on with). I put it together with the feather cocktail dress and it made the dress absolutely breathtaking and stunning! But when I tried it without the under layer skirt, it made me look like a black chicken. I already have little chicken legs, so add poofy black feathers and you have goth chicken. But with a ball gown style skirt layered under the feathers, the dress is transformed from goth chicken to breathtaking elegance and it is going to turn heads (in a good way) everywhere I go.
It is also going to make the most amazing sexy saloon girl steampunk costume. Now I have TWO steampunk costumes I love. Can't wait to wear the dress to the formal at the Mercury on Friday!!
