In yesterday's post I mentioned that I was unable to get photos of myself from my Steampunk ball. Well luckily our photographer was able to get plenty of shots for me. So, this is what I wore. Since I just had a baby three weeks ago my options from my costume stash are rather limited. I've still got about thirty pounds to lose before I can get back into a lot of my clothes and costumes... until then, I'll gladly play the role of the buxom Victorian vixen.

After decorating the hall for the ball I had thirty minutes to dash back home, get dressed and make-uped, load the car with the rest of the food and get the baby ready for the babysitter. On the way home I realized that I had NO idea what I was going to wear to my own event. Eh, I wasn't too worried though. I'm the master of last minute costumes.

The only thing I bought for this costume was the mini top hat (I bought that a couple of months ago). It was steal at $7 and I knew I would want it for my costume.
