Hello, all! I'm getting ready for Dragon*Con, and decided I needed a parasol to go with my Steampunk costume. I was inspired by the Alexia Tarabotti novels.
I took a paper parasol, spray painted it brown and stenciled some designs in gold. Then I added an old candlestick as a handle, made a keypad on the upper handle, added some old lamp parts, and added some "aether crystals" to power it!
