Steampunk with Outland Armour by yayacosplay Steampunk with Outland Armour by yayacosplay
This is a collaboration between Outland Armour and me! For over a year my friend Danny [link] has been talking to me about making a Steampunk outfit to join the story and characters they have created. Danny thought up a Madam character for me who helps his crew, and I designed the costume based on his input and character description.

As for the making of the costume - I wanted to make something Asian inspired mixed with Victorian elements - after finding a gorgeous green and black brocade, I settled on my color scheme and created a two tone jacket/corset hybrid top (it's all attached) with various trims, pleats, ruffles and beading. The skirt took multiple hours to drape and has a knife pleat front panel with beading and ruffles, with a cascading gathered back and internal mini hoop system. I used an old wig that I pulled up and made a feather hairpiece for it. To complete the look, I made a garter belt and used thigh highs and boots I already owned.

The awesome brass fan was made by Danny and Ryan! It's totally custom, made from scratch and even lights up. I love it. Danny also gave me a couple of tiny gold guns which fit in my garter belt :)

Btw, look for us in those costumes this coming weekend at Metrocon in Tampa, FL!

I must confess, I don't quite get the whole cosplay appeal accept to have fun. But I do admire your talents. Your designs, costume illustrations and renderings and crafts(woman)ship are absolutely amazing. From conception to fabrication and photo-shoots your attention to detail is exceptional and your imagination and resourcefulness command respect.
