Information

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!

Weight is an issue but you gotta respect a Steampunk willing to suffer for the art ^.^ this is really amazing, the webbing strapping you to the tank is awesome!
