I found my steampunk skirt... finally!

Yes I found THE Skirt for my "ladies" costume for the Steam punk Worlds Fair this may! I already have my airship engineer's costume done, but I was searching for the most perfect skirt for the other costume, and I found it and its SUPER affordable.

Its black and white stripped with a flattering fish tail that pulls tight at the knees and then flairs to the bottom. its just steam punk enough and will look amazing with my new black satin corset and white ruffled shirt. I think the stripes will even slim my hips just enough as well. I can’t wait to try this one on.

So the costume? The skirt, the corset, my cute creme ruffled shirt, a jaunty mini top hat that's striped like the skirt, and my awesome granny boots. I can’t wait to take a picture of me in this one. I think I need a parasol, though I do have the cute netted gloves already and the awesome stockings.

You can buy the skirt HERE and you can get TONS of cute stuff at this site and its SO affordable! http://www.chicstar.com

Best part about this skirt? its COTTON and I LOVE that its high-waisted, so its going to hold in the little bit of belly i have these days LOL. I really look forward to having this in my possession.
