WWWC Costumes: Casual Friday

Chris didn't have a costume yet when we hit WWWC for the first day, so I decided I didn't want to seriously outdress him. As such, I declared it "casual Friday" and put together a cute, simple costume out of every day clothes and steampunk accessories. The cargo pants and aviator cap came from Buffalo Exchange, the lace tanktop and corduroy vest came from Target, the boots were $25 on sale at Charlotte Russe, and of course the stripy socks are from Sock Dreams.

The accessories are what really make it, of course. Brass pins from Creative Etching and Airship Entertainment (aka the Girl Genius store). Awesome goggles from Brute Force Leather. And of course, my necklace, Time's Dead Flowers.
You can find more handmade steampunk jewelry at my shop, Handmade Jewelry by Erthe Fae Designs. I'm catching up on my jewelry-making to-do list, so hopefully I will have new one of a kind necklaces up soon! Yay!


  1. That's a nice outfit- it looks comfy. And pretty necklace! :)

  2. Thank you, Meri! It was very comfortable... I actually wear those pants allll the time.

  3. You're really good at this costume stuff!

    (Hmmm, word to verify is STEER.)

  4. Thank you, Marilee! In a way it's kind of like beading... you look at the materials you've got and then figure out the best way to combine them to make something pretty :)

    (STEER seems appropriate, since I was at a wild west movie set!)
