steampunk masquerade

my mother is a fucking goddess

hell fucking yes she is.

so i’m trying to think of what i want to do from animemidwest. and i realize, Steampunk! can’t go wrong with steam punk. so i’m looking around thinking, do i have stuff that would work, what do i need to make, and my mom, my awesome awesome mom goes. “what about that ballgown i made for holloween a few years ago?”

this dress guys.

this fucking dress

hot damn.

mom made this dress from scratch. (as i write this shes watching youtube videos on steampunk, i’v created a monster)

now. it needs modifications. we were experimenting with hiking the front up to show off my boots so it looks a little hokey right now. it needs more embellishments and such. i’m going to make add ons for the boots and make a steampunk masquerade mask for it ect…

we were thinking of doing a whole arm gauntlet thing (you know the sort of thing)

looks better in this one. needs tights.

also i look like a dork



S/O to both @littleblackchat​ and @hubedihubbe

I have been meaning to post pictures and will probably post more later but I wanted to show you that this did occur and I’m so thankful for both the design and the encouraging words. I had a blast as Chat! I even made Steampunk jokes for my masquerade entry and won at one of them! (My Entry was “Miraculous SteamPUNS”) The power unit in the back, cataclysm glove, and ring all glowed (paint and LED). Plus my staff could extend and shrink. All of my cosplay was made by me with a few items exempted (like my green cat-eye contacts).

Thanks again for being so encouraging!
