Ok, so i decided to take advantage of this challenge to work on a costume I have been planning for a while now. Her name is Anna Feng and she one of the Heros of the Steampunk book series The Hungry city Chronicles. After pouring over the novel for every shred of detail i could get on her costume i set to work designing this! I got all the bed sheets from thrift stores, all of which where whie save for the burgundy. The rest I had to dye. It was my first time dyeing anything so it took FOUR separate dyings to get the color i wanted. All of this is on my craft blog along with the rest of the creation process @ www.livejournal.com/users/plaid-boots I drafted my own patters, it was my first time making a pants pattern but I'm VERY happy with the result. I spent over 4 hours just doing decorative top stitching on the shirt pants jacket and Gaiters. the only items i did not make are the Hat, goggles, and Gloves.
The Pendent was custom made by my brother and inside carried a photo of a vintage African American aviator (as her boyfriend in the story, Khola is an African pilot!) I also made the hat pin out of an old necklace as her call sign is "The wind flower".

I hope you like! See more pictures and the whole creation process @ www.livejournal.com/users/plaid-boots

Happy Up-cycling!
