My starter steampunk outfit, including khaki patrol cap (Target, $15), vintage safety goggles (ebay $20+$40 perscription lenses), band collar shirt (amazon, $25), Pakistan/India style vest ($20 online), fingerless gloves (ebay $8), Dickies pants (Wal-Mart $20 but were already in my wardrobe), leg warmers for gaiters (ebay $7), and Doc Martens (gift from wife in 2001). Not a bad start.
I may try a size smaller vest (I wanted the one with stripes anyway, seeing if the company will waive shipping if I buy a second vest rather than sending this one back), swap out the hat for the darker leather one although it needs constant stretching, and possibly see how it all works with the striped overalls I did. But it works for the steampunk event this weekend, which was my goal.
