1  A clockwork dream... in Halloween Costumes by bead~baby~bead on: November 02, 2009 07:38:15 PM
So this is my first project post and my first time completing such ambitious costuming.

Using Simplicity pattern 2525 and salvaged fabric, I created this wonderful 3 piece outfit complete with fully lined jacket and vest. The dear bf's coat was a re-con made from his old Matrix duster. We added braiding I picked up on eBay (10yards for $5) and some gold buttons.

The bf took some model paints and some actual clockworks from a broken clock, along with some store-bought findings and my awesome squirrel earrings that we deconstructed to create our "logo" (he has a matching tie pin in his cravat) to make 2 pair of awesome time-traveler's goggles.

Add top hat for him, a feather and parasol, and lace up Victorian boots (not shown) for me et voila... Steampunk Awesomeness.

I came on here looking for techniques to complete the head piece for my costume. Which is totally original. And I think I will be entering my first challenge this time around.

While I'm here anyone have any ideas on how to make a She-Ra-like crown but more delicately??? I think I have this worked out, but can use any ideas you all have.
