Steampunk author S.C. Barrus has put together a nice little gallery of this year’s best steampunk Halloween costumes. And wow, he’s not kidding. These costumes are out of this world. I love that ninja costume!
I’ve posted a few images here, but head on over to Away & Away to view them all.

Check out this insanely awesome steampunk Frankenstein’s Monster. What a work of beauty. This is special effects makeup artist Rick Baker, a master of his trade. So amazing.
Here’s an excellent steampunk Kaylee costume, from the TV show Firefly. Aw, seeing this really makes me miss that show.
Cosplayer Laerai has done a beautiful job with her Kaylee costume. It’s steampunk, a bit of dieselpunk — just perfect for a mechanic like Kaylee. Laerai wore this to the recent PA Ren Faire for Time Traveler’s Weekend. She even met up with Captain Malcolm Reynolds! Very, very nice.
I found an olive green dress in a local shop that had a dieselpunk/military feel to it, and the idea was born. I hand stitched the heart and bear patches to the dress and added a brown leather waist cincher. I purchased a brooch with gears on it, and a pocketwatch, as well as a locket that seemed like something Kaylee would wear. I found the goggles online, and I plan to make them metallic and more in line with the rest of the outfit.
I got a belt pouch that I can use as storage and fits in with the costume. Lastly, I purchased an Edwardian style ivory umbrella that has that old school feel, and hand painted it to be similar to hers.
Ooh, take a look at this amazing steampunk Arabian costume. This looks so cool!
It’s extraordinary, literally. Maurice Grunbaum was part of a steampunk group cosplay of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The photo is by Gilles Michel at the Japan Expo 2012.
Great job on the costume! This is incredible.
