My Steampunk Belle costume. I’d like to add more steampunk to it aside from the goggles and the book, but the costume itself is complete.
Now I have to go watch Doctor Who and probably cry my eyes out.
But seriously. I’ll post pictures later.
World’s Faire is in THREE DAYS and I still have to
- buy my dinosaurs
- buy a Hawaiian shirt
- make a skirt
- make a bustle to go over said skirt
- figure out how to make a gun holster for my mom
- figure out how to make a utility belt that will visibly carry books
Is slutty Wash an acceptable thing? I thought I’d have time to buy burnt orange leggings or make a jumpsuit to go under the Hawiian shirt, but lol finals, and now I’m kind of screwed. So Hawiian shirt, dinosaurs, shorts, and combat boots? Maybe?
I’m hoping to have Steampunk Belle (blue dress) completed by Steampunk World’s Faire. I can handle making the dress (for the most part, I’m still not sure how I want to make a bustle that will come off and let it be Disney movie accurate) but I need some accessories.
What I thought would be good would be to make a funky case for my ereader and to find a way to holster it somehow.
Does anyone know any good tutorials for working with pleather or for making something like what I’m looking for? Or suggestions for things I could do?
…because I think Wicked Faire and SPWF are going to be out of hotel rooms by the time I’ll know if I can afford them or not!!!!!
[Image Description: ADORABLE BLACK STEAM PUNK BABY. AAAAAAH!!!! Her pacifier matches her tiny hat, omg. AND SHE IS IN A PERIOD APPROPRIATE PRAM.
Um. Here we have a baby, lying in a pram, wearing an embroidered white top, and a little hat perched on the side of her head. Her pacifier matches. She is adorable. Someone out there is parenting correctly.]
This itty bitty was at Steampunk World’s Faire. She was so well behaved and adorable.
I feel kinda bad because this hat was way too big and she couldn’t see out, but the pictures are just too darn cute.
Because what else would Belle do at a convention?
