Time Taken : 2 months

This was done on a complete whim and yet still somehow managed to come out as my most expensive cosplay ever ;-;
A good deal of this is made up of actual vintage Victorian stuff, such as the goggles, the watch faces and movement parts, alot of the navigational equipment and the satchel. The rest was either bought from normal highstreet or charity shops.
I'm sans shots of it at the moment, but there's also a wrought-iron bird cage full of tiny, fancy-looking white birds (fake ^^") which do my running about for me.

Come the con, there will be dirt smudges and a slightly more convincing guy-ish appearance, too XD Full body shots coming soon.
