Steampunk pirate costume by sokkenn Steampunk pirate costume by sokkenn
So I'm going to the annual pirate party this Saturday and this year I'm going for a steampunk-ish aristocrat-turned-pirate. I'm aiming for an OC named Lady Scarlett from Celestial, my steampunk novel (which is done, btw. I only need to find a publisher now - easier said than done).

I pretty much made the whole thing myself - except the dress, which I (heavily) modified to fit the steampunk theme.
Still not sure about the fur draped around the shoulders, though - I'm allergic to fur, and I'll probably end up sneezing and scratching my neck all night long -.- If I'll leave it there, I'll have to make sure it look good.
Is it worth it, people? Should I leave it there?

It was an old dress I found and modified, so I didn't make it from scratch :) I'm not that talented with needle and thread!
But yeah, that's the belt. I have way too many things attached to it by now :P

Wow you really did a great job doing this! I would die if I could wear this one time in my life....!
I don't know how you have made it, and do you have anything that you looked after making it :) ? If so, could I have a copy of it xD ?
And I don't think you have made the corset :) ? I'm lookig for a corset just like that one >.<
AND last but not least ~ I thik the fur make the dot above the i, if you know what I mean... But if you are allergic, I deffinately don't think it is worth it :) you might take some photoshoots with it on, and then take if off before going.

Really awesome job :D

Nope - I had no pattern, if that's what you mean. I just made the whole thing straight from my head :d I have very limited seweing skills, so I did my best to modify the dress without ruining it.
It took quite some time, though. And I've still got hundreds of new ideas to make the costume even better!

And no - I didn't make the corset! But you know, you can get it at Femme Fatale in Copenhagen. I bought my underbust there. There's an really awesome lady ready to help you find the right size and everything c:

Well, I ended up having the fur on one shoulder (underneath the leather pauldron)and I think it ended up really good. Though my friends had to correct it every ten minutes because I hadn't sewn it onto the dress xD

And thanks! I'm really glad you like it!! :'D

You looked faaaabulous. Loved the fur, but I think you'd look even more awesome with some sort of bolero!

I say leave the fur off, especially if you are allergic to it. While I do think the fur makes the outfit more interesting, it is still a great outfit without it, losing the fur won't detract from that. Hope you have a great time, you'll look great at least.

Thank you! I'll remove the fur, then. It seems like most like it better without.

Wow, that is beautiful! The fur is nice, but not necessary. There are a lot of other cool, pretty details on this costume so it won't be missed. Also, you want to enjoy yourself, not be scratching and sneezing! How long did it take you to make this costume? :clap:

Hmm... well, I think it took around two months to complete it. Or perhaps a bit longer. I've been working on it on and off.

I dunno, personally I say leave the fur. To me, fur isn't exactly piratey. Besides, why chance it if you know you're allergic. It might just end up spoiling your evening.

Either way, you're going to look amazing.

Right. I think I'll do just that. I don't want to sneeze all night.

Thank you, though! I'm glad you like it :D
