I was trying to go for a steampunk look with this one... I'm not sure if I managed to! Actually, there's a lot which should be improved, which I will the next time I wear something like this. Mainly pulling my skirt straight so it's symmetric and pulling my sleeve downwards...

Blouse: vintage
corset: second hand, I do not know
Skirt: handmade
socks: hand made
boots: dr martens
necklace: from vatican city, gift from my sister
Bracelet: gift from a friend
pocket watch (the chain on my skirt.. I made a special pocket for edward): gift from my parents"

I've been dying to do a Steampunk-inspired shoot for a long while.

The most difficult part of this series was designing the outfits. But that's the beauty of Steampunk: there's no right or wrong way. Personally I would have loved to have more brass accessories, but I'm still thoroughly pleased with the way they turned out.

Amy and Jesse have amazing skin art, so I wanted to feature it. I cut the sleeve off a lacy shirt I've been saving for a shoot such as this. It was a worthy sacrifice, it'd be a shame to cover up all that beautiful ink.

And hey, notice the goggles I bought from Portland?

Other unique vintage oddities are:
jeweler magnifying lenses and turn-of-the-century spectacles (worn by Amy), and a antique director's viewfinder.

This is the most time I've ever spent making a Halloween costume ever.
After all these years, I still love to watch the Nightmare Before Christmas.
Haven't seen it in 3D yet. Maybe next Halloween.
Taken with a timer and softbox.

Happy Halloween!"
