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 We covered these desks in our study with leather and there was a load leftover, so it was all great, hehe.
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! ^_^
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
It's great to see a tutorial that shows how easy this can be if you use your imagination and stuff. x3 Great job, I'll definatly be using this in the future! Hm, maybe I should go in to town dressed up like this and see what people think...
my gosh, thank you thank you thank you for this tutorial! I'm just starting to get into Steampunk and, honestly, do not have the money to spend on vintage clothes and boots, etc. But this tutorial gave me some great idea's for using things I already have!
Oh awesome! I'm so glad I was able to help! That was totally why I did this tutorial! BTW, you can sometimes get really cool lacy victorian-esque shirts and things for dirt cheap at goodwill and places like 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)
