DIY Project Steampunk

Hello everyone,

Technically this is my week off, but.... well.... you know.... I applied for a grrrrreat shooting this Sunday and as I got accepted I had to go and figure out how to make myself a own steampunk outfit for it within a few days... Considering Steampunk is a very do it yourself friendly genre this is what I started with...

I bought a vest for 5 Euro and some faux leather fabric that was in the sale for 5 Euro per meter. The ugly pearl and stud part had to go and I added some faux leather to the back cause I find that more interesting looking!

I bathed my bloomers and the lace top in some black tea to make it more vintage and dirty looking and I made a faux leather bustle myself  loosely based on the video you can find below. I slaughtered a belt that I bought for 1,99 € and added it to the bustle to add a comfy yet stylish way to open it.


I really look forward to shooting with it on Sunday!!!
