My 2014 Steampunk Ball Costume - Complete!

So the ball was ages ago, but I didn't have a good photo of my whole costume until today. As it stands, you can't see much detail in this, but I didn't want to leave you hanging after posting my progress earlier this month.

Though the corset was no great feat of waist reduction, I finished it, wore it, and felt good in it, so I count that as a win. Many others seemed to like it, too, because I somehow won the ladies' costume contest, a great honor!

Photography was done by Eric Marks of Backwards ME Photography

There's really not much to be said about it, but there ya go. :-)

  1. The metal accents of the shoulder pieces and chain drapes are a nice touch!

  2. I love the way the ruffle came out. Did you use ruching on it and then sew a strip of bias to hold it to the needed size?

    Thanks!

    1. The guard on the skirt is knife pleated, but after dragging it around so much, it was all wrinkled and ruffly-rather-than-pleaty looking, lol.

  3. You look fabulous! No wonder you won the contest.

    1. Thank you! There were a lot of [much more] amazing costumes there - light-up bustles, crazy octopus corsets. I'm still amazed they chose me!
