There’s still room in the Online Steampunk Writing Class I’m teaching the month of November. All levels and genres are welcome. If you’re working on a Steampunk WIP for NaNoWriMo consider joining us–at least to have support and info at your fingertips. If your working on a Steampunk WIP (or have an idea for one) and not doing NaNo, consider joining us as well.
Today I need your help, if you please. I have a Steampunk Princess costume and I need to make it more, well, Steampunk.
I’m not sure if I want to do anything to the dress itself. I’m not a very clever seamstress. My friends helped me re-purpose an old prom dress and a formal skirt to make this, along with about 20 yards of ruffles.
But I need to add something besides the clockhand tiara. Otherwise I look like an ordinary princess. That, my friends, would never do!
That is why I need your help.
What sort of gadgets would a Steampunk Princess have? Clockhand throwing knife hairpins? A delicate wrist-mounted ray gun painted gold with little rhinestones? Throwing star tiara?
What would a Steampunk Princess wear? Do I sew gears on my gloves? Add something to the gown?
I need some suggestions for some easy DIY ideas.
Just a note, I sew things with glue guns so I’m looking for ideas that I can make cheaply and easily (and I mean easily, I’m craft-impaired–remember the ball gown fiasco.)
But the hubby does have a welder and metal cutting stuff….
So, who has an idea for me?
