Here is a little preface: ...I don't know if going as something Steampunk for Halloween makes people angry or not. I've been debating if it's not polite to dress as Goth/some other easily-identified-by-clothing 'subculture' for Halloween, because it makes people feel like how they dress every day is only good enough to be a costume. Please don't think that I'm trying to make fun of anyone. Smiley

My original plan for Halloween was to go as a Steampunk explorer/mad scientist hybrid.  Because of the hat, everyone thought I was Indiana Jones...so I decided to just run with it and call myself 'Steampunk Indy'.  I don't even think I pulled off Steampunk, but I had a great time anyway. Cheesy  I made my costume out of thrift store remnants.


(Excuse the semi-MySpace angle...)


Full Body shot.


so you can see the containers hanging off the belt.


A closeup of the vest/jacket/etc. details that you can't see in the above photos.

What it's made out of:
boots - thrifted
brown ribbed tights - target several years ago
knickerbockers/breeches - thrifted, originally were wide-leg gauchos
peasant shirt - thrifted
tank-top - Savers, ribbon added from my ribbon stash after I chopped off all the buttons.
vest/sleeveless coat - thrifted, made out of a suit jacket.
gears painted on the lapels -  Michaels, puffy paint.
test-tube and eye droppers on the side; brown, red velvet-lined cylinder - my basement
belt - target, 5 years ago...ish...
Indiana Jones Hat - friend's dad

If there's anything you would like a tutorial for, please ask. Smiley It might take me a while to post it, though.
