I found the exact perfect shade of blue for Belle’s dress!!! I can’t wait to steampunk it up!!!!
Of course the downside of this is it’s too perfect to get away with wearing in Disney World and claiming I’m not trying to be Belle…
This is how it will be done. Because this is a thing that will happen.
Slinky green dress (think Jessica Rabbit in green)
Green elbow length gloves
Green beret… because Gumby’s head is angled at the top.
Stay tuned to see how this actually turns out.
Steampunk-inspired Victoria’s Secret
Oh man, is it that time of year again? Did I miss it? Drats!
Gah! Get out of my world. I’m not saying this because I think steampunk should be this elitist group of Neo-Victorians that only lets in other people who can name the complete works of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and Oscar Wilde. I think anyone who wants to get into steampunk should. I just feel that what makes steampunk so awesome, to me, is that it’s DIY all the way. People don’t just wear costumes. They spend hours laboring over them. Planning every intricate detail so that it looks just right. The idea of mass marketing steampunk just sounds ridiculous to me. The people who were with this movement from the start will not buy into the mass marketed crap, which means that the only people who will be wearing this stuff won’t even think it’s nearly as cool as something hand made and one of a kind, so the whole idea will be lost on them.
A challenge to anyone looking to get into steampunk: Don’t buy a store-made costume. Use your imagination. Be creative. It will just make the whole process so much more fun.
