I figure these go here as they are made to wear with my steampunk costume (which I did NOT make, I can't sew). But I love my steampunk accessories!

First: the top hat!







Made with this tutorial. http://overthecrescentmoon.blogspot.com/2011/08/mini-top-hat-tutorial.html I used plain cardboard moulded around my party cup as the one I had had strange ridges on it that wouldn't have worked as a hat. I used black crat felt and left over ribbons. It is sewn to ribbon to tie into my hair when I want to wear it.

The goggles:




Made with an old pair of swimming goggles and leather off-cuts. All pieces are joined with scrapbooking brads, There is white elastic at the back but as I mostly wear them on my head the elastic is hidden behind my hair.

The cuff:







Made with an old belt cut to size and new holes punched. It looks really chunky and industrial.

The 'watch-hider':



A result of being dressed in my steampunk costume and then going "what do I do with my watch?" I obsessively need to wear a watch at all times, but my watch happens to be a blue plastic super-man watch. This cuff is made with lace and felt with two slits that the watch band slides through. Then I can simply do the watch up as normal and snap the cuff closed around it, hiding the watch and making it blend-ish into my costume.







It also works without the watch.

C+C welcome!

I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

All are great, my favourite would be the Hat, but the watch disguise is a wonderful idea.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great job on all of them!  I love the simplicity and awesomeness of the belt cuff!
