I'm finally doing it!
I'm putting together steampunk outfits.
I want two separate ones. One a sort of Maid Marion/pirate and the other more of an adventurous librarian.
Oh, and I can't take decent pictures.
So first, we have Vixen corset, shirt, and stagecoach shirt from Damsel in Distress:
Or, for the full effect with my bad photography:
And the basis of the steampunk librarian:
That's a big plum circle skirt, white blouse, and black pinstripe vest.
I still need a leather harness, something to hold a pocket watch, and two seriously fabulous hats.
It's all about the accessories.
It's funny-- only in the last couple of years have I learned to accessorize my normal wardrobe.
Now I have to learn all over again.
Note to self: cogs, brass, octopi.
If you were going to dress up in a steampunk fashion,
what would your persona be?
Pirate, adventurer, inventor, diva?
