Gothic Elegance, you say? In my ears, that sceams "Steampunk". So myself and my good friend known as The Champion have taken it upon ourselves to become Steampunk brothers for this event. I've decided my costume will include a top hat with goggles made of brass and leather, my suit (complete with snazzy vest) and hopefully a cane for extra classiness.
Since I didn't forsee myself making a blog post about this I don't have many "making of" pictures, so I'll just post what I have. :D
- Piping cover
- Copper circle... things...
- Drape/ blinds rope feeding... things...
|Strap + Buckles|
Headband strap was made of:
- Random buckles found at Canadian Tire
- A handle from a reusable shopping bag
And the finished product (with top hat):
Huzzah! I love being a nerd.
