I'd like to do a steampunk twist on K-On's Akiyama Mio, but I have no idea where to start!
I have a satin corset to which I'm adding ribbons to make a it a halter... combined with a full knee-length leather skirt and some steampunk-y goggles I made a while back for fun.
I'm also wearing the signature blue/turquoise tights but i'm adding a layer of black vertical stripes tights over that (surprisingly not bulky when I wear them together lol).
I want to stay true to the essential character but add some steampunk accents. Is there anything else I can add to it without changing the cosplay too much?
I'm a noob at cosplay so any suggestions would be much appreciated!!
