All right, Halloween is coming up (not to mention all those steampunk conventions I listed in the last post), and it’s time to start putting a costume together. If, like me, you have neither a great gift for sewing nor a large bank account, you may need some inspiration.
Look what this girl put together all by herself!
She got most of it from thrift stores and sales. The sewing part she did with help from online how-to videos. You can read the whole story behind the outfit here: http://www.wired.com/geekmom/2011/10/creating-a-steampunk-costume-for-the-cosplay-newbie-part-one/.
More posts to follow about making a good steampunk look on the cheap. Namarie!
