Christine Daae/Steampunk cosplay...where to start?
Hello, I'm new to cosplaying. I haven't gone to any conventions, but I love dressing up and making my own costumes! So I'm diving in headfirst and decided I would be Christine Daae, from Phantom of the Opera (with my boyfriend as The Phantom, of course). I'd like to make the costume steampunk, because it is set in the Victorian era, and I think the costume might lend itself well to steampunk. But are there any recommendations for which iconic Christine costume I should use? I'm thinking the white dressing gown is the most well-known, but her "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" costume would be better suited for steampunk. What do you think?
