Steampunk Costume – Perfectly Purple

Purple Steampunk Costume

I love fun and funky color combinations.  Do you?

Most people would pair this steampunk corset with a black skirt for an easy match.  But with Halloween coming soon, I’ve been making a lot of black steampunk costumes.  So I decided to bring out the bright and beautiful colors in this corset when I made the matching skirts.

This outfit can be worn without its matching bolero shrug, but I love the way how the short jacket brings the look together.

And to me, of course, no look is complete without matching hat!

I made a fedora style hat to match this look – but with a mini or full size top hat, I think it would make an epic Mad Hatter Costume.

The skirt is my “Vintage Diva” pattern, but instead of wearing it with a bustle or underskirt, I put it over a fluffy vintage petticoat.

Jewelry is by my sister, Vixen’s Delight.  You can purchase the dress here, and it’s matching shrug here.
