What's out there? by AyraLeona What's out there? by AyraLeona
This one is me in my Steampunk Navigator Outfit for the Elf Fantasy Fairs 2011 in Arcen, NL. Our group (which can be found here: Les aventures de Loryva
This year, we created an Airship Crew and I was the Navigator. I love my curls in the picture but they where damn horrible to make (one night sleeping with "Papilotten" is sooo uncomfortable!).

My Outfit:
Skirt: Self-made
Top Hat: self customized
Blouse: C&A
vest: Takko
Fur collar: vintage (a present of my mum's colleage)
Lorgnette: vintage
little leather bag: vintage and self-customized (hot fix ftw)
the other leather bag (orginally for objectives, I use it for my camera^^): Vintage, found on a flea market
jewellry: Claire's, Six, Zeeman...
rest of the decoration was made me

I love your steampunk outfit. You take a great approach to the aesthetic, making it look not just like random clothes but rather the garb of someone from such a world, which ought to be the end result of all steampunk outfits. I'm also very impressed by your ability to keep a list of everything and where it came from, something I used to do but gave up on ages ago. You're very organized with details, I can tell that. Lots of nice vintage things you're using; vintage is perfect for steampunk. I'm also impressed at your ability to make and customize things. That proves resourcefulness, it's something any steampunk person should be able to do.

Thanks a lot! I Glad, that you like it that much! I put a lot of efford in the small stuff, like military like decoration (which unfortunately is nearly invisible under the fur >.< I'll post a detail shot of it^^).

I believe listing all that stuff is something I learned from the Lolita community, there it's nearly normal to give a round-down of your outfit.

Vintage stuff is just perfect for steampunk, because you don't have to customize it, it already looks old^^

Once again: Thank you!

Ah, that's the unfortunate thing about little details - they often get lost amongst everything else. I remember once wearing this pirate-type outfit that I was quite pleased with assembling, and there were a lot of random shiny things and belts and stuff hanging off of my person, and when I looked in the mirror, I realized that most of it wasn't very easily seen. (But, fortunately, most of it clinked together and jingled when I walked, and I was really happy about that. :D)

Hmm, fascinating. Yes, that does seem like a very Lolita thing to do. If I ever do something like this, I'll take that idea into consideration.

Ah, you're welcome! I am very fond of steampunk in all its forms, and I always appreciate outfits like this.

Well, but it's the little details that make the outfit^^
Are there any photos of it? I'm curious^^

I believe doing an outfit round down is very helpful for other people if they are searching for stuff, so they can see where I got mine^^

Alas, there currently are no pictures. Some of my friends photographed it once, but have yet to give me the photos.

Oh, yeah, that's another great reason to do one. (Although, if I did those for my outfits/cosplays/stuff, it probably wouldn't be a very helpful list, as I just get most of my stuff at thrift stores and occasionally people give me stuff and I have no idea where it came from.)

Oh, I know that problem! I've got another Steampunk Lolita Outfit from a convention here in Germany but there are no good photos on my camera >.<

Well, with all the Vintage stuff it's the same^^

...it appears to be a park bench with half a giant cage surrounding it... which is awesome!

Fantastic costume, props, and setting Ayra.
