You were aware of her request before the party and made a conscious decision to ignore her and disrespect her in her own home. Regardless of what YOU think, it was HER home. Do you owe her an apology? YES--but since you don't seem to have any respect for her or remorse for acting like a rebellious teenager, it wouldn't mean anything. Since you are so firm in your conviction that you were "right", let your actions speak for themselves.
I would apologize to keep the peace - something like....sorry I caused a scene at your party.
First of all, the outfits you describe sound really cute!
Okay – I don’t know why your sister has such a shoes-off issue, but you knew about it in advance.
I would apologize.
No, I didn't go there to blatantly ignore her her wishes and I could have stayed home but that would have caused a bigger problem if I had chose to skip her Birthday party, that would have hurt her feelings and I don't know if she would have forgiven me for that. Plus she wanted me there to lead a line dance as I'm the only one who knew how to do it and she had put me on the program as
I think you need to apologize....you knew when you put your costume together that she had special instructions so you should not have built your costumer without respecting her wishes.

Your dh and your BIL kept their shoes on and your sister didn't say anything to them? What is the reason that she suddenly wants people to remove shoes in her house?
I think that you should apologize for upsetting her on her birthday, not for keeping your shoes on. I understand what the others here are saying about respecting her rules in her home, but the fact that she seems to have enforced it unevenly isn't respectful of her guests. Its either a rule, which she makes sure that everybody follows; or a suggestion, which the guests are free to do or not. And as hostess she should not have made a big deal about your boots in front of the guests and potentially cause you public embarrassment.
I agree with you that its weird to have a costume party then tell the guests that they cannot wear part of their costume while in her house. Just have a regular party, warn the guests that they're expected to remove their shoes (so they don't wear hole-y socks) and provide disposable booties.
