Hey, I'm a little new to the steampunk thing, just learned about it actually at the convention I was just at last weekend (they had, like, five booths that sold Steampunk gear and I got to talking with some of the dealers about it.)
I want to design a kind of old west based steampunk out fit based on a picture my friend took ( http://i951.photobucket.com/albums/a...nspiration.jpg
) and was wondering if a vest like this would be accurate: http://www.theoldwestgallery.com/ser...ES-VEST/Detail
I just kind of googled old west patterns (not wanting to fall into the typical corset trap) and found this, and since the internet is always right (sarcasm) I was hoping to get some insight. Don't know when I'll have time to make the outfit, but I'd sort of like to get used to designing.
If anyone has any ideas they'd like to share based on the picture I'd love to hear (or read.) Like I said, I'm completely new and would like to know what some of you experts think and what you get from that picture.
