Hello Kitty theamed steampunk

I recently bought a Hello kitty Halloween themed corset, and I was wondering if I could make a steampunk outfit out of it. But do think it would be silly to make this outfit, or do you think it would be a good idea. Any advice would be wonderful.

Please and thank you

It sounds very cute. Go for it. And I'd love to see photos of it when it's done.

This just gave me the cutest vision of Hello Kitty in a monocle and a leather top hat :3

Do you have any pictures of the corset? I think this is a good idea, but if you're centering it around something that couldn't work for steampunk, then it just can't turn out well.

I think it's a rather interesting concept; mixing steampunk with one of today's pop culture icons. Don't think I've ever seen that done before! :3 I agree with grotesk_faery on wanting to see a picture of the corset. But of course, if you're going to enjoy yourself and have fun with it, I say go for it! <3

I agree with you. Steampunk isn't a genre with a set of guidelines so strict you have to adhere directly to them or you won't be considered steampunk. It could actually turn out looking like someone who fell through time from the present day into an alternate past and incorporated something they loved from their time into the dress of the time they are now finding themselves in.

And as stated, cosplay is about enjoyment, so if it's something you want to do, go for it and have fun!

Hmm... Well, the Halloween theme is definitely very modern, but I think you should go for it anyway and see where it takes you! ^-^

That is very cute and very Halloween, but I think if you do it right, you could steampunk it.

that sounds awesome, although IMO corsets are more cyberpunk... well, I guess it depends on the corset. Im sure you can make it work wonderfully it sounds like an amazing idea

This is why I love steampunk, it is so flexible. You can be hardcore goth or cute hello kitty.

I am sure it will be quite epic.
