Steampunk - Cartographer
Last Updated: 10-09-2011
I have no idea as to when I will finish this costume, but it should be very interesting. I want to see if I can do this costume on a budget.
So far, I have three pieces complete pieces for the costume.
The coat: I bought a Danier Leather suede coat in a green-brown colour at the Madoc thrift store for $8. It was such an awesome find, and it was exactly what I was looking for for my cartographer.
The vest: I was able to find a simple, dark brown waist-vest that was exactly what I wanted to have. It's very simple, but still elegant. It cost me a total of $2.
The dress shirt: I will be re-using a dress shirt that I have used in many costumes. It's a men's white dress shirt, size Medium. Cost $1
The wig: I found a wig at the thrift store (same day as buying the hat, coat, and vest), in a light brown and it's fairly short. It won't require any styling so I'm very pleased about this ^^ I can use it for many costumes.
In progress: The hat - I bought a plastic top hat to use as a base for the hat that I will have for the character when it's done, to make him look a touch more formal when he's out and about. I will cover the hat in a black fabric that will be appropriate for the time period - even though a top hat really isn't... cost $1
