The Hunt for the Perfect Ball Gown for Halloween

I am on the quest still for the perfect gown for
the Halloween balls I am going to this year
I love this green one though I'm pretty sure I don't have that much boobage to be showing off :-) but it really embodies the sexy, Victorian, steampunk combo I'm looking for-plus I love the color
Unfortunately I couldn't find any listing for this gown for sale- it came up in a photo search for sexy steampunk gowns
Now this Mina gown I found on Etsy is WOW- it also has a wow price tag like $1200
This Marie Antoinette gown has a similar price tag
So does this gorgeous red velvet gown though this one seems more medieval than Victorian, I'm still loving the look

These gowns I found on Etsy- all gorgeous all can be custom made to my measurements- and each would be a huge investment- like way more than I spent for my wedding gown even

of course I love each one of these more than my wedding gown- oh that probably sounds awful but if I could have done things my way for my wedding I never would have worn white because I am so not a white wearing kind of woman and I never have been- take that how you want to ;-)

Anyone have any suggestions, a website or somewhere to send me
that has gorgeous gowns with a less than heart attack inducing price

Oh and yes I am looking into costume rentals but unfortunately there are not any in my local area I might have to drive an
hour or so to check out a place in Lansing, MI we'll see how that goes

Have you tried They have a Steampunk collection. I have their pop up top hat and goggles. The customer service is really great. And, I suspect that they will be adding more Steampunk as Halloween gets closer.

Thanks Jen I'll check them out- I forgot about them. I remember seeing a gorgeous skirt there last year that I really liked. I'm off to search :-)

There's always making your own gown based on these designs. :)

not me, I can't all...maybe sew on a button but anything beyond that is not happening
