Costume Information

Cost : bout 20 pounds for all of it O_o
Time Taken : Few hours so far

This is essentially a work in progress, it was mainly to show the finished goggles and the respirator on a person. My top hat was cheap I opted for the higher brimmed topper, I think it looks slightly colonial. And a victorian detective/constable would have worn one because of general price ^.^ in fact all my clothes here were very cheap each item not costing me more than a pound. I mostly do costumes on the cheap and this one turned out pretty ok. Im planning on adding so much more including a new rifle that im currently working on. There will be a few more accsessories to come so keep posted.

These pics were taken purely to illustrate the work in progress ^.^

Tiny bit of back story....well alot, sorry....also very sorry for bad grammer, punctuation please be gentle O_o

“Smoke” thought Tobias, clouds of fine particles suspended in gas this was what he had been taught about when he was young. This was where all lessons ended....he stood in the street gazing up at the thick black vapour. It must have been two to three minuets before he snapped out of it and carried on with is beat. Tobias was a constable and he routinely but diligently pounded the streets in search of the waifs and strays of crime that seeped into clock district from the big towns above. Tobias Lestrade third son of a long line of detective inspectors whose sole duty had been to keep Lon’das safe for the past hundred years. Tobias was a man of integrity and values and he looked upon his heritage with pride. Now you might ask why this man of such colourful family background isn’t and inspector…well as embarrassing as it is Clockton was the district of Lond’das that rarely saw anything more than a falling out of traders. The last time he had to deal with any kind of a heated situation was when a missing shipment of lamplighters wicks went walkabout and he ended up leaving the fray to find them.

Smoke…clouds of fine particles suspended in gas this was the facts…this would have been enough for most intelligent people.

The first chapter is on my Deviantart :)

Yeah that Dr Who ep was a blighter, it had me a little bit scared if I'm honest! I like the way you're taking this, it's quite nice on the eyes and looks basically like what you wear everyday so it suits you too ^^ Great work for such a budget costume!

What would we ever do without our trusty transport museum ;o
I like this outfit a lot more, sorta' developed itself away from the generic steampunk look into something it's own. ^^
Also I think it fits nicely with the backgrounds, the respirator and such would of looked out of place ^^
