I'm completely new to steampunk and I'm currently trying to put together my first outfit. So far I have this corset: http://www.corset-story.com/brown-go...et-cd-468.html
and a pocket watch necklace (both of which I got before I was interested in steampunk, but thought would be good starting points). I have done some research and found that I really love pirate steampunk and Kato's stuff from http://www.steampunkcouture.com/forsale/c/2015
I'm on a poor man's budget, but I'm trying to make a toned down outfit that I can wear to school (I go to a university in the south and they all look at you funny if you even think to dress up), and be able to trick out to go out. Does anybody have any suggestions for cheap things to buy and/or tutorials to make my steampunk outfit? Also, I need to wear a tank top or something underneath the corset, but I can't decide what colors would be best. Any suggestions?
