Now that you know your steampunk personality, it’s time to get down to the Really Important Part of this whole steampunk month thing: COSTUMING.
YOU KNOW YOU WANT A STEAMPUNK COSTUME.
And you don’t have to do much to create a steampunk-tastic outfit. Just check out this video to see what I mean:
(Sorry I have a cold and sound congested.)
Inspiration for your Costume:
I didn’t want to spend much $$ on my costume, but I did browse lots of online shops for inspiration. While I love the Lolita look, it didn’t really fit with my novel (The Spirit-Hunters is more Victoriana than steampunk).
So I decided to make a “prim-and-proper” dress (from an old prom dress!) and then accessorize for a steampunk flare. But I’ll get into all that later this week. For now, take a gander at some images and places I used for inspiration, as well as the final costume result (courtesy of Amanda Plavich‘s magical camera skills).

You tell me: Would you ever dress up steampunk (or is that too lame and only for kids)?
