Last weekend we attended the annual High Desert Steampunk Ball in our latest Steampunk costume creations. This one is my favorite Steampunk outfit to date.
This years costume all started when I fell in love with the stripey Chicstar Black Three Tiered Tail-skirt. I LOVE this skirt. Its so fun to wear, nicely made, and not to badly priced either. From these I went stripe crazy and added from Spirit Halloween (surprisingly NOT cheap-o one time wear only stockings.) The little back vest also has a subtle stripe to it although you can’t see it in the picture. I found the vest at the thrift store last year just waiting for the perfect costume ensemble. Next came the
Black Nude Lace Corset also from Spirit Halloween worn over an ivory white lace Victorian style top from . The accessories came from a mixture of things I already had (choker, necklace, lace gloves) and amazing finds from local artisans (hat and mask.) The final pieces are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn- . Seriously while everyone else at the ball had their shoes off after an hour I was still happily dancing the night away four hours later. This was the first chance I have had to wear these boots and it certainly wont’ be the last. Highly recommended.
