If you are hanging around Tampere on Saturday, come and party with us! There's great prizes for the competition and you can also win in a raffle just by voting for your favourite costume, so everyone can win. Here's a link to the Facebook event Club Underworld and Bella Morte Release the Bats III!
I originally planned this costume for the Fetish Factory event, but I couldn't go when I got sick. Good thing there's many possible events to wear costumes at! Here's a few snaps of my steampunk themed outfit.
I'm using the bustle skirt I got from Fan + Friend a while ago, but wanted to make it look a bit different. The brown overskirt used to be a wraparound skirt, but I took it apart and sewed it to have pleating in the back and strings for tying in the front. I'm planning to gather it up to get the bustle even bigger, in the pictures it's still just hanging loose.
When finished it will gathered a bit like this! The shirt is from a second hand shop, the harness and sleeve are from Fantasmagoria and the corset is a dramatic points corset from Draculacorsets. I was planning to wear it as underwear, but the shirt didn't have enough fabric in the back to sit nicely on the bustle, so this way it had to be.
|Details of the Fantasmagoria sleeve, it has a cool high collar!|
|And my tired face when trying on the outfit ;D|
|These thingies are going to become a head dress for the outfit! My other half wanted to make one, I'm quite exited!|
