Show off your creative side this Halloween with a DIY Steampunk costume! The great thing about Steampunk is that it can be altered and customized almost any way you’d like so there’s no right or wrong with this one. It can be made to suit anyone which makes this costume ideal for anybody this year!
A message from Nancy, the creator of the ‘Steampunk’ costume:
This is a DIY Steampunk costume I made for a Steampunk themed party. I loved the way it turned out. I used a multi-purpose silk peasant style blouse paired with a full corset over it. Used a black ruffled skirt to which I added gold trim.
My Mom made a bustle with the same gold trim added. Then I decorated a black top hat with peacock feathers and a bow. Added colored spectacles and Voila! A Steampunk costume.
Loved it and the best part was my Mom and I made it from what we had. It was a great bonding project.
