Steampunk Samhain

Sorry for the tiny break! There was so much work in arranging the Samhain party that I just had no time to write. But finally here are some pictures of my costume, I was very happy with it! All pictures taken by Ari Rantanen. I was supposed to take some pics of my look myself, but after finishing setting up the venue, I still had to print and cut 200 voting tickets for the audience, eat, finish painting the headdress made by my other half and let it dry, do my hair and make-up, and do the finishing touches to my playlists, so there just was no time!

Headdress - By my other half
Sleeve - Red Queen's Black Legion
Shirt - Second hand
Harness - Red Queen's Black Legion
Corset - Draculacorsets
Brown top skirt - Self made (it used to be a butt-ugly wraparound skirt)
Bustle skirt - Fan + Friend

The evening was great, people had truly awesome costumes and the venue looked really nice and worked well with the amount of people there. I played two sets and only managed to empty the dance floor once (apparently not many Lebanon Hanover fans around!), so I call that a success ;D

The only downside was that I was so busy running around that I didn't have enough time to chat with people, but next time then! I feel like it's been ages since I've seen friends when I've just been at home, working or studying. It was great to go out, even if it was a busy evening, and all the guests seemed to be enjoying themselves too :)

Costume competition winners, just look at those cool outfits!


  1. You look beautiful!. How nice is to have a crafty partner... mine doesn't even know what is a glue gun, oh the horrors if he ever had to use one haha.

    1. Thanks! Haha, a glue gun in the hands of someone who doesn't know how to use it is a sure recipe for disaster! My other half makes miniatures and recently got some Worbla-plastic to have a go at making some armor, the headdress is the first thing he ever made with Worbla and it's gorgeous! Much of the same painting techniques work with armor than with miniatures. He's a bit of a perfectionist and works slowly and carefully, while I prefer getting things finished rather than having them perfect, so together we make a great team :)

  2. The outfit is amazing! The headdress is splendid! I haven't had a Steampunk outfit for a while, I need to make some new ones! but it is TOO HOT here right now!
