Steampunk is great fun. This is really my first time dabbling in the glorious genre, and I'm having a blast. A BLAST! Just thought I'd post an update with some pictures of my current project - The White Rabbit. He's not just steampunk, he's also automaton. What's more fun than a victorian-influenced-robotic-clockwork-rabbit? Nothing, that's what.

Here's the eyepiece / monacle. I'm totally psyched about it.

More of a frontal view of the eyepiece. I had this image in my head all along, and I'm excited that I was able to get it looking like it looked in my head.

This is my gauntlet. It's sort of hard to move around in, but who said costumes had to be functional? It's pretty cool, I think. Not exactly what I had in my head, but I did the best with the pieces I had available to me, and I think it's nice for what it is :)

Everything on! I'm almost done really, the entire top half of the costume can be considered finished at this point. All I have left is the finishing touches on the bottom half, and a prop-staff.

Here's a few pictures of some accessories, and just a few shots I took during the making that I thought were pretty....

Big Pile O' Steampunk

Inside a beautiful old pocketwatch. A little rusted, but the gears were nice :)

An alarm clock I took apart that had magnificent gears.

And a pocketwatch I modified with some wings and gears :)

Hopefully next time I post anything cosplay related, this costume will be finished, and I'll have some pictures to share!


  1. It's all pretty amazing to me.
    Hopefully if you wear that at ImagiCon I will get to take a few pictures (I love taking pictures).
    The cake is amazing too. :)

  2. Love the pocket watch at the end!
    Really cool job!
