Bats Day is a huuuge goth meetup at Disneyland. I loove disneyland, I've had a pass for years, I go alllll the time, even my boyfriend works there, lol. (I'm more of a metal head than I goth, but I do love dressing up)


The dress I made isn't much, but I still like it a lot. I wore a corset over it, which I did not make. I loosely based the dress off of another dress I made using this tutorial- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31949.0 Its pretty much that dress, with a black underskirt. I should have pinned up the top skirt, but sort of made this one at the last minute, since the origonal black one didnt work out. (Measured something wrong, had to salvage it to make the underskirt)




This is the only real full body shot I have, a friend took some, but I dont think she's going to ever remember to send them to me (There is one on some blog that shows my back pretty good, though, lol. But the only good thing about the back of the dress was my wings tattoo shows)




Heres one of me sitting on the floor in Haunted Mansion (My shoes were killing me, so I constantly sat down, lol)



I know its not much, but I like how it came together with my corset and tights. A lot of people complemented me on it, someone even came up, stomped her foot and went "Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, beetlejuice!"

Love the look!  I wanted to go this year, but ended up working Undecided
Definately looks comfy and not quite as hot as some other Bats Day outfits I've seen (and would die in).  And I'm loving the black and white stripes!

Gawd that's cool.  Gives off this whole Adams family/alice in wonderland/rocky horror sort of feel.  Love it.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

AWESOME!  I went to Bat's Day, but just the Black Market part (I couldn't quite cough up the cash to go to Disneyland twice in one year).  I SO SO SO want to go into the park next year! 

I was LOL at the Beetlejuice reference -- I missed that until you mentioned it!

Wow! I do not have words to decribe just how much I love this dress! And it does kind of give off a Beetlejuice vibe, doesn't it? Definitely one of the most amazing things I've ever seen!
