This gown was made some time ago and has been retired for two years now from use. I still have it, it still fits and it's still in (relatively) good shape for being roughly ten years old. It was new in the picture.

Bodice, upper sleeves and overskirt in black satin, the underskirt and lower sleeves in purple Silkessence, the underskirt forepart in glitter bat mesh and lower sleeve overlay in black chiffon. Trimmed in gold, black and purple trim and amethyst rhinestones. Back has spiral laced closure.
You might recognise this as an Elizabethan style pattern, it's just the fabric choices that make it perfect for Halloween.
