Here's the persona behind the costume:
His name is Roy, he was born to a wealthy family, but ran away at 14 to follow his passion for all things mechanical. He is now 17 and works as an airship mechanic aboard a small vessel.
I don't plan to do any RPing, but having a character will help me stay focused and not buy every shiny thing in sight.
Now for the costume itself.
I was originally considering wearing a coverall. But upon further research, coveralls first appeared circa 1920.
Would a coverall still be acceptable?
If not- my basic outfit will be comprised of trousers, a work shirt, suspenders and my classic black doc martens. I plan to accessorize with a tool belt, bandanna, goggles, and 'coal dust'.
Any tips? Ideas? Opinions?
