Felicity Harbours - Steampunk Fashion

Information

Assembled, piece by piece, for a spontaneous photoshoot on a rare sunny day.
I built the gun from nothing except plumbing spares and a strong sense of determination. Of course, as always, I burnt my fingers on the glue gun. This time, it occured when I was relining the top hat with replacement velvet and adding buckles to my pre-existing boots.

The deck sunglasses are my pride and joy. I hope you like them!

Felicity Harbours was very creatively named by Emi, and the photographs were taken by my good friend and occasional cosplay partner Luke, with a sepia filter to create the Steampunk aesthetic.

I realise this is quite a typical, and not very special costume, but please excuse me as I am very much still a novice as you probably have guessed. To know all is to forgive all.

Much love...

Oh ..My ..Gosh this is just too hot! those legs are deadly! =P Well done on your gun too. It doesn't look like standard plumbing parts so you did it well. Will we see this cosplay at a show sometime?
