Comic-Con Costume of the Day: Day 08
Comic-Con Costume of the Day: Day 08

Here’s a Twofer for your Tuesday.  Steampunk is big.  And I’ll admit it, I dig it.  The cool thing about the Steampunk look, is you don’t have to exactly recreate any one character to do it right.  You can, but you don’t have to.  It’s more about the overall look, feel, and vibe to your costume.  There’s typically leather, brass, hats, and goggles.  There’s also gears, gadgets, and whatnots.  You can have canes, eye patches, and other devices.  The color scheme is typically earth tones, but you can have huge patches of color as well.  It’s a pretty wide genre as far as looks go, but you know it when you see it.

These two have it just right.
