   Posted by: manny

Watch out, Vampires. You’re about to get steamed. Check out this awesome steampunk vampire costume, made by ch19251. He’s armed with a sword, a pistol, and a really neat steam-powered stake shooter mounted to his wrist.

If I were a vampire, I would run the other way. Great job, Sir!

Steampunk Kaylee Costume from Firefly

   Posted by: manny

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.

What an outfit! This guy looks awesome. This photo was taken at the recent Steamfest 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Unlike the usual fancy Victorian steampunk, this guy looks rather post-apoc, a working class scavenger. Love that burlap duster!

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.
