Couples Costumes With Steampunk Influences
hubby wanted us to dress as post-apocalyptic warriors- or something along those lines ;)- for his birthday/Halloween party. i made my skirt (with a removable front panel ;) and over-the-knee spats and goggles from random fabric and other stuff i had at home and a $5 curtain i found at Goodwill. i also made an underbust corset but it didn't look right so i went with the leather vest i already owned.
hubby's coat was a chef's jacket he found at Goodwill. i tore the sleeves off and cinched in the waist since it was baggy. i used the fabric from the sleeves to make the hood, and he added the spikes in a mohawk.
for my goggles, i used connector pieces for plumbing pipes that i spray painted with a bronze color. the brown lenses are form a round pair of glasses, and the blue in the flip-up lens came from a sheet of blue plastic. i used a hinge from one of those tiny wooden boxes you get that you can decorate yourself. since the hinge is really loose, i needed a way to keep that part up when i flipped it up, so i super glued some snaps on each piece to keep it in place. around the goggles is some leather scraps from a leather jacket i bought to take apart and make my corset. hubby's gasmask was also made from some of the leather scraps. i also used some plumbing connector pieces i painted, along with the tops to a salt and pepper set we got at the Dollar Tree.
my gun was a Nerf gun we found at Goodwill as well, that i painted and glued some craft watch gears onto. i also had a grenade we found at the Dollar Tree that i painted to look more realistic.
all in all i'm pretty happy with how they came out :D they definitely have that unperfect touch to it all which goes with our costumes :)
