Excellent that you guys won the contest!!

I'll try to post a pic of my and dh's costumes. If I'd been on the ball quickly enough, I'd have made spats for him...and I've had done a better job securing my skirt....it flopped around too much, methinks! (please forgive my poor posture, too!  Roll Eyes )

THANK you so much for the inspiration!!

Love, Marla

OMG!  How awesome!  I love em!  I think the skirt is especially cute. And belts.  Have to have lots of belts Smiley  And your dude looks strapping.  I love steampunk!  I'd run around like that all year if I could.

I think we should dress like that all the time (different boots for me, perhaps!). You should see that great little pistol he has. It is brass!! Very cool! He even got a brass eyeglass. I ruined his goggles trying to paint them, so I gave him mine. If I'm really ambitious, I may post the whole goggles re-do on instructables (and here, too, of course!). He'd have had a great hat like your guy, but I couldn't get him to shell out the $80. Gentlemansemporium was where we found the pants and suspenders (and the hat we didn't get). My mom was just tickled to death that my skirt matched his vest.

Your costume, and his costume are just...amazing!

So cool.

Just a question, though...(don't mind the ignorance.  Man, it's times like these that make me feel like I'm getting old...I'm only 25!)

Where exactly did Steampunk come from, and what exactly is it?  The only thing I can think of that looks like these costumes is kind of what they wore in the movie Stardust.
