Original character (steampunk)
Last Updated: 07-28-2011
Sanford Adamas is a character I've played with in various incarnations over the years. Basically, he's an eccentric, exciteable, snarky and determinedly ambitious engineer in the 1890s and my closest qualifier for a steampunk costume.
This costume, thankfully, required no sewing, as I able to find pretty much everything in stores, or had it around in the first place. The waistcoat was probably the hardest thing to procure--luckily, vests came into style around the time I was shopping for it, and I managed to find one in some trendy teen store. The hat I bought online from a men's formalwear site, and the spats, interestingly enough, are from a marching band supply site (took me forever to figure out where to get those. XD) The wig's from Amphigory.
The chain you see is indeed a real pocketwatch. It's a gold-toned mechanical one inherited from my grandfather, and ridiculously pretty.
This is probably the most complicated costume I own, what with all the accessories and the fact that I'm nutty enough to wear an undershirt and suspenders beneath it all. Even brown coat Roderich, with his stockings and garters, doesn't beat it out. XD Ridiculously fun to walk around in, though.
