Steampunk is many things: a fashion statement, a literary genre, an attitude. And while it may seem like just another passing fad, those in the know understand that this lifestyle will always be a thing of the past – and that’s a good thing.We’ve got a staff full of the pop and counter-culture obsessed, so steampunk has been on our radars for a long time. But for the uninitiated, Steampunk embraces the simplicity of pre-industrial revolution technologies, such as steam power, while at the same time taking on a beautifully modern design aesthetic. This makes for a look that is both retro and modern, which makes it uniquely stylish.This women’s steampunk costume will help you stand out in a crowd this Halloween by showing off that modern sophistication through retro details. The women’s costume includes a dress that has Hook and Loop fastener tabs in the back for a secure fit. The bodice, sleeves, and yoke of the costume are all made of brown velvet for a classic yet elegant look. The dress has cream interlock ruffes at the edges of the sleeves as well as faux suede side panels and an interlock center panel on the bodice. The keyhole cutout below the high, ruffled collar gives it an added bit of detail. The skirt of the dress has an asymmetric hemline that is longer in the back for fuller coverage. The included faux leather buckled straps go across the wrists of brown velvet gloves. The foam top hat never loses its shape and has a brown velvet cover to match the rest of the look. The final touch is the plastic goggles that have an elastic band for a secure and comfortable fit. Add a pair of sexy high heeled boots for a complete look that’s out of this time period!
