|Starting work on my new steampunk project, a Royal Navy firefighter. These men would be used aboard warships as damage control and fire suppression. Due to several revisions of the design it took a lot longer than I expected to complete. Was worn for the first time at Fuyu. |
I'm really happy with how it looks but its not an easy costume to wear, its warm and the backpack is bulky making negotiation narrow/small spaces problematic. Weight isn't too much of an issue as the harness sysetem was designed to distribute it evenly, its more the accidental knocking into things that bothers me!
