Steampunk – Photoshoot

Two weeks ago I manadged to get one of my sisters to help me take some photos of my new Steampunk outfit.
I originaly planed to wear it at a steampunk convention in late june, but the event ended up to expensive and I couldn’t attend. But since the outfit’s done I figured I like as well take some picturs of it.

To be fair I didn’t need to do a lot, besides put the pieces togeter out of my already existing wardrobe. I used my 1880s trained evening bodice as the base, and paired it with pants, boots, belts, lots of make-up, and my new “steampunk” accessories. Then I was good to go.

I had lots of fun on this photoshoot (I love to play around in my costumes instead of just stand there looking pretty), and I think we got some realy good pics. Enjoy.

Steampunk accessories

I’ve been chipping away at lots of different costuming stuff lately.
But the things most outside my usual sewing zone, are the pieces I’ve made for my up-coming steampunk outfit.

 I’ve been loking through lots and lots of pictures on the internet and there are som much incredable talent out there. I can only wish to somedsay be able to create something as beautiful.

Anyhow, here are the items I did make for this costume.

I had this cheap bag who I wanted to turn into something steampunkish.IMG_7058

Using this inspirational picture I got to work.steampunk_bag_by_krammelnira-d5qazu1

Since I didn’t had any leater in my stsh I decided to paint the wheel on my bag using golden craft-paint.IMG_0113Then I glued some gears on it using my regualar fabric glue.

My next project was to get that super cool looking steampunk gun.steampunk_nerf_gun_by_fencesmakegoodnebors-d324it0No, not this one – this is my inspiration.

Following some tips on the internet I had bought a cheap water gun. IMG_7056The materials used.

I started by sanding the intire gun down.

Then I sprayed it with copper craft paint, making sure it was compleatly covered.IMG_0109Letting it dry over night.

Then I painted it with my gold, silver and brown paint, and glued on some gears to make it even more steampunk looking.
