For my birthday for the past few years, I've done a Steampunk-themed party, and my friends are awesome enough to dress up and have fun with me. I make a full tea, we drink absinthe and play a themed game (this year we used my life size board game again, only altered for a new theme: Cryptozoology, specifically a Sasquatch Hunt). My character runs a company specializing in tracking & hunting cryptids, but also providing leisurely expedition tours. Thus, her style is somewhat practical, but also attempting to be classy...



You can see I made an attempt at some prosthetic make-up, with a leg wound, with exposed gears. Not the best, but we'll see if I can try it again and improve the technique.



Some pieces I had made before and are just part of my steampunk stash of costume pieces... the bandolier, the belt, the gun, eye patch, corset, Jack the raven's prosthetic eye, falconer's glove. The underdress in peasant style was new for this outfit, as was the bustle (I tried out McCall's Steampunk pattern, 6770).



Also made the hat for this outfit, by altering Vogue 7464.
