I either hand-sewed or depended on my MIL for the sewing work required.
However, I found that I wanted to do more, and depending on someone else was not going to work, so I pulled out the sewing machine that was a birthday present 10 years ago, and actually used it for the first time.
I found a Damsel in Distress corset secondhand through the FB Steampunk Fashion group, and went from there. I'm very happy with the results, although I'm still figuring out a persona to guide the accessorizing.
The brown skirt is a thrifted, altered prom dress. Yellow blouse is thrifted. Bustle and apron made from a thrifted shower curtain using Simplicity Pattern #1819. Ebay jacket - vintage 80s Wilson's leather . Corset from Damsel in this Dress. Sleeves in last picture made from scraps of the shower curtain and thrifted sheer material.

I got a 1941 copy of Gray's Anatomy at the 2011 one. The last one, I snagged "The Nineteenth Century and After, Volume LIII, January-June 1903, a monthly review edited by James Knowles" Which I reallllllllly need to find a way to delicately scan. A monthly review of 1903?! I recall at one point they were actually scoffing at the thought of a large scale war. Ya know .. that big one.... named One.

I promised a thousand breaths back that I would present you with the delectable spoils of a Steamy photo shoot featuring my steampunk mask creations, which was planned to take place in a luxurious, local Victorian Guest House... and here I am. Ready to deliver. Fashionably late I hope?
There are too many spectacular images to show so I may just release them in bursts of two.
I was blessed to find a damned near Godly photographer: Vince Hemingson
And two heart-achingly fetching models: Manny Uppal and Saori Sloan
And of course matey, my work be the masks: Shay Lhea of OcultoSteamMasks
Feast your eyes:
Aren't they tasty?! I'm thrilled!
