So I got pictures of my steampunk costume in now too. All made within seven days Smiley
There is a more detailed post on craftster as I thought it deserved it's own post.

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Victorian steampunk costume on: November 23, 2015 01:56:13 PM
So I play larp (I might have mentioned this before) and this weekend I attended a Victorian steampunk game where I played a medium. The costume did not need to be historically accurate but needed to fit in with the theme.

For this costume I created:
- Pants out of brown coduroy (from a free online pattern I modified)
- A cotton shirt (from a modified Butterick pattern)
- A dark blue coat (from an Arkivestry pattern)
- A brown leather chest harness of my own design
- A brown leather kidneybelt of my own design

The belt and the coat were spiced up with chains that had a ton of charms on them.
Costume without the coat:

Pic where you can see the chain details on the coat

And two bonus pics of the belt front + back

So I completed a total of seven costumes over the last month and a half (everything homemade by me except the plate-armour on the far right pic.) There are two more costumes missing (both costumes of my own.)

Are there any other europeans in this Swap. If yes I would love to joing but being a bit short on money the shipping costs to non-european countries are just a tad too high.

Thanks ladies Cheesy

The leather coat was made from the leather that came of an old chair. This one was easier to manipulate as the material was sewable but we chose to do rivets instead cause it gives a more rugged look Smiley All toghether it must have been a project I worked on for six days straight.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Leatherwork isn't that hard. The hardest part is actually taken the knife to the leather and starting the cutting. There are really no good ways that can fix any mistakes you make from that point on.
