My school's anime convention (AUSAM-Con at Auburn University) will be doing a steampunk theme for next year's con. I'd really love to cosplay within the theme since I'm going to be staffing; I have ideas for a general steampunk idea, but I can't help but want to morph an anime character into a steampunk setting.
Does anyone have any ideas as to which (female) anime characters would look best in steampunk wear? Or just in Victorian wear in general? Preferably blonde, but any hair color will do, since I'll pretty much be creating this whole costume from scratch so what's another $30-$40 for a wig? xD
P.S.: for those of you who don't know what steampunk is, it's a fusion of Victorian-era clothing with mechanical designs and pieces, like cogs/gears, lots of copper, and goggles.
