Like a goth chicken

The dress is mine. Mine MINE MINE. Unfortunately the girl that put the size XS on hold had picked it up. But they still had two left in size small. We had to lace the small all the way closed it back to make it fit, which made me sad. I like the look of seeing the ribbons and criss-crossed laces on corsets. But my sadness turned to joy when I went to pay for it and found out everything in the store (if you purchased a certain minimum dollar amount) was 15% off. That took a lot of the guilt out of spening so much on a dress, I saved a lot of money!

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!!
