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.
