Cosplayer Tejnin made a really cool steampunk Harley Quinn costume, and she’s posing with an amazing steampunk Iron Man at the recent Up in the Aether steampunk convention in Detroit.

Wow, Iron Man has such a nice helmet. These two make quite a pair. Well done!

Gorgeous Steampunk Iron Maiden

Since Iron Man 3 comes out today, it’s only appropriate to show this absolutely gorgeous steampunk Iron Man/Maiden costume. So amazing! This is what perfection looks like.

Michelle from The Suitcase Studio is the proud wearer of this costume. But it was a family team effort, as her husband designed it, and her mother-in-law sewed it. They make quite a team. Great job!
