Oh, wow! I admire your creativity :D And the way you use cheap and recycled stuff which is on hand - I think that really fits in with the steampunk aesthetic!

:D No problem! I've managed to make a really great steampunk outfit, hehe. Belts DO work really well! Especially with fancy buckles, hehe. Now all I need is some goggles...

Whoot! And hey - Touchfeel and I made our goggles. There's an awesome tutorial here on DA that we followed - the goggles are definitely more decorative than functional, but it was easy on our budget for sure! We used bell jar lids for the frames and old belts for the leather straps. And I think the plastic for the inside of the lids was from the plastic bags sheet sets come in. So totally easy to find all of the pieces and then just decorate as you like!

Awesome! I'm in the process of making some goggles - I've just finished sewing the eye-cups or whatdoyoucallthem out of some fake leather I was given :D We covered these desks in our study with leather and there was a load leftover, so it was all great, hehe.

You've gotta be effin kidding me. And here I am searching every expensive lolita, ouji and steampunk site for one. I love what you can find in secondhand stores, but that is just too darn lucky. xD

Oh my goodness! This is EXTREMELY helpful! Being that I usually have to work on a (very!) limited budget, I've gotten relatively good at pulling together this and that scraps to make a costume work, but I had written steampunk off as something I just simply couldn't afford to do. This tutorial has proved me wrong! Thank you so much! ^_^

HiddenYume-stock Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
Oh so freaking glad to hear it!! That is exactly what I hoped for with this one!

And yeah, strangely enough, steampunk is actually one of the least expensive for me to do anymore. Granted some of the accessories and corsets are pricey, but I had those long before I realized I was into steampunk lol

Yeah, I suppose that if you have them on hand, then it works just fine. :D And if not, I'm sure there's a way to improvise with that, too. ^_^

I've *ALWAYS* been frustrated that I can't completely s'punk my wardrobe without tons of shopping and money involved. Thanks for showing that an ordinary work/school outfit CAN become a steampunk outfit with some creative thinking, it really made my day (or at least what's left of it) :D
