I created this outfit for a costuming event. It's inspired by a mish-mash of steampunk, Amelia Earhart, and DaVinci machines. The only elements I didn't design and create from scratch are the hat, goggles, boots, and white lace shirt (under the corset). This instructable will hopefully inspire some of my fellow costumers out there. We spend countless hours developing a costume to wear, at most, a few times a year. Why not do more with some of those designs.
As I made this outfit, I fell in love with the jacket. It's fully lined, comfortable, and unique, so I took it from a costume piece to a fun piece of outerwear. What costume piece could you work into your wardrobe?
