As a convention-goer, I've developed quite an interest in costuming and garment construction. I had the pleasure of taking a class at KCAI for "Experimental Costume Design."
I love Steampunk influenced fashion, so I took it upon myself to design this outfit. And, of course, I made it!
The pieces consist of a blouse-sleaved bolero, boned corset, shorts, a-line half skirt, and harlequin leggings. I also made the little hat with Fosshape.
The design also includes a "One-Minute Weave," for fabulous hair that I could never maintain. Some gear earrings were added on from Clair's, and the boots from Rue 21. I thrifted a few belts and gave a new paint job to some dollar store guns, and here I am! In steampunk glory.
