Vampire Ball {Halloween 2014}

So our final costumes for Halloween were for the Vampire Ball, which was a party held on November first in the Officer’s club on Osan AB.

My dress is made from a silk corset, that I trimmed in lace and boned with basket reeds.

The under skirt is black damask fabric, and the over dress is a black flocked spiderweb taffeta that I got online from Joann Fabrics.

It has been forever since I have made something like this, and it was nice to get back to my roots!!!

The pattern for everything is my own, with a lot of it draped on my dress form.

The fichu is made of spider lace that was also from Joanns.
