23rd February 2010: Start of Beth Darnell As this is my first Steampunk character/costume it will be pretty simple but in saying that I am really enjoying the creation progress and other ideas are sparking off it.
After deciding upon a character and writing a bio (which I will post here at some point) I then searched e-bay for items for the costume. The charity shops in my area are rubbish so I didn’t hold out much hope finding anything I wanted but I might go looking once in a while for possible items to add to costumes. Anyway I found some great brown leather boots and a brown satin corset. Also a dark blue military style jacket, goggles and a white shirt which I can alter to create the look I am after for the character. So far I have just altered the shirt by removing the ugly black plastic buttons, cutting off the loops that fastened the shirt and sewn up the front two panels where the buttons and loops where positioned.
