Kaylee Frye (Steampunk)
Last Updated: 08-11-2013
Made a steampunked version of Kaylee to debut at the PA Ren Faire - Time Traveler's Weekend.
I found an olive green dress in a local shop that had a dieselpunk/military feel to it, and the idea was born.
I hand stitched the heart and bear patches to the dress and added a brown leather waist cincher. I purchased a brooch with gears on it, and a pocketwatch, as well as a locket that seemed like something Kaylee would wear. I found the goggles online, and I plan to make them metallic and more in line with the rest of the outfit.
I got a belt pouch that I can use as storage and fits in with the costume.
Lastly, I purchased an Edwardian style ivory umbrella that has that old school feel, and hand painted it to be similar to hers. I do have a paper umbrella, but I wanted more of a steampunk feel.
I plan to make earrings out of gears, finish the goggles, and slowly add accessories over time.
