steampunk costuming... [Jul. 2nd, 2011|08:04 pm]
Verminius Rex
I finished one of the overalls, and I realized that even with vertical stripes it is not a slimming look. I'm thinking that I'll stick with the steamtech idea, but I'll do up a work vest to go with the band collar shirt and my brown canvas work pants. At least I got the cowveralls out of the effort. 

So this coming week I'll find a basic vest pattern and modify it for my steampunk outfit. I also had found a khaki patrol cap at Target that I think will look great for the overall outfit. I was considering a drop leg bag to add, but that's something that can be added later. 

After all the overalls work I'm going with mostly stuff I already own. Ironic and slightly annoying, but it was an interesting experiment overall. I may try a hand at period pants in the future, but the focus is to have an outfit ready for the KCCG tea in about 2 weeks. Need to dig up something for Marz, too.
