1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A clockwork dream... 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.
