It Halloween season and I have already been to my first party. I wanted to make sure I got this post up, because there is still time to get things ordered for anyone that is only going to dress up for actual Halloween. This year I did a play on a steampunk costume. I really like steampunk, but I prefer feminine colors so I made mine a steampunk circus costume.
To get the clothes to achieve this look:
The Hat – I made mine and will be selling some in the future, but until if you are not the DIY type you can find similar here.
The Bodysuit – I bought mine from Lane Bryant’s a couple of years ago, and while it is no longer available they have one that will work just as well and probably keep you warmer. You can find it here.
The Corset – I bought mine years ago at a Cacique store, so they obviously no longer have it. However, Hips % Curves has one that is very similar and will work perfectly for this look. You can find it here.
The Gloves – I purchased on eBay. You can get them here.
The Petticoat – I bought this from Hips & Curves a couple of years ago for another costume, but they still have it. It is their Ruffled Two Layer Petticoat. You can find it here.
The Garter Belt – I purchased mine from Lane Bryant’s a few years ago, and while they no longer have the exact style I have on you can find a similar style here.
The Thigh High Pantyhose – I purchased these from Hips & Curves specifically for this costume. You can find them here.
The lighting really washed out a lot of the makeup I had on, but if your interested in how to do a steampunk look checkout my Halloween Inspiration board on Pinterest. And if enough people show interest I will come back and do a step by step instruction post on how to do the makeup look.
Do you have a great look for Halloween? Please share it with us. Send it in a message to me on Facebook with your name and some info on your costume and I will either post in on the Facebook page or it may even end up here on the blog. I want to see everyone’s creativity.
