Steampunk Costume :D


Grand Junction is hosting its first ever steampunk/scifi/fantasy convention in September (the 26th – 28th to be exact)! 😀 Needless to say, I’m totally stoked. I’m going to wear my Rose Tyler costume to one of the days of the convention and decided to make a steampunk costume for another day. I’ve never done anything this difficult before so I’m pretty excited to see how it turns out.

I have my corset (silver and black), my trousers that look like a skirt, my Victorial-style boots, stockings, a black lab coat, and my top hat and goggles. I decided to go with a steampunk doctor theme, sort of mixing together a field researcher, apothecary, and physician.

I worked on my hat today after spending some time at Michael’s. They have a very cool array of steampunk charms and such.

Dig my biohazard goggles or what???? :D

Many plants have medicinal properties so I keep some tucked away in my hat for such occasions

I also possess a myriad of vials and containers of medicinal powders and crystals

I’m having a BALL getting this costume ready! Next big project is to deck out my black lab coat (still waiting for it to get  here from Amazon) with some lace and other necessities that a steampunk doctor would require!

      Thanks!!! 😀 It’s my first attempt at steampunk decorations. I may have gone a little crazy with the accessories 😉
