Love your take on steampunk! I wasn't all that keen on the gears and goggles theme for my potential upcoming costume requirement--thank you for your insight into potential ways around the cliched gears and gadgets!
Gorgeous! I've been googling steampunk costume designs (as I have less than 2 weeks to put one together from scratch) and you've given me some ideas on how I can tweak an old prom dress of mine. Wish I had the time, inclination to make something as fantastic as yours!
