Got the packages for my steampunk costume today, minorly irritated that the vest I received was solid brown rather than brown with stripes. I emailed and asked if they'd consider free shipping on a future order rather than an exchange because I'd like to try the same garment with stripes in a different size, and this one works for the event this weekend. |
Since i have all the elements here I'll see how well I can work some self-taken costume pics in the basement, testing out the remote for my camera at the same time as my new backdrop (courtesy of stuology ) and the entire outfit. The good side is that the basement is cool enough that I won't suffer heat stroke trying on all these layers at once.
