I can't take full credit for this because my mother helped me with this a whole bunch.
The dress was originally a corset- but a really ugly one. It was some awful shade of light pink, way way way too big, and had stains all over it.
So, we re sized it, gave it a skirt,& sewed a bunch of nick-nacks all over it.

It's really campy and goofy, but I wanted it to be.

The whole dress:

again, at a different angle:

Me and My date- also, a shot of the bow in the back

A close up:

The head dress:

thanks for looking!

Ahhhh! Thank you for all the feedback! I figured that I would elaborate on this post by showing more of the jacket my date had on.
Once again, I can not claim full credit for how this turned out, since it was a joint effort between me and him.
I would like to add that I am sorry there aren't more pictures of his coat, since the back was very cool.

My date's DIY Jacket:

& the grand finale? Pre-Prom dance pics- because we actually choreographed a dance like losers.
