So, as of late I've been focusing a bit more on steampunk stuff. That includes more clothes and, of course, more weapons. Somehow I've managed to end up with an airship pirate-ish thing going on, which I've just accepted and decided to run with. I'm a little torn between airship pirate and some kind of steampunk royal air force-y g, but airship pirate is a touch more appealing. Maybe a former space/airship/whatever marine (yeah, how exactly does *that* work?) that became an airship pirate? I don't really know. I'm just trying to figure out a title that works for the look. I'm not playing a character like a lot of people do, I just want to figure out a sort-of category for all the crap I've acquired.

anyway, on to the stuff. First, clothes. Somehow, the look has turned out a little bit captain John Hart and a little bit Captain Mal Reynolds, don't ask me why. The main thing I think influenced it is this coat, acquired from a military surplus store. I've been drooling over this thing since oh, October or so. Pretty much the second I laid eyes on it, I wanted it. There were ones that had braid on the front but by the time I got round to actually buying one of these coats, those were all gone and there were only plain ones left. No matter, I am still about as in love with this thing as one can be with a piece of clothing and not have that love go all creepy. XD

This is the second new-ish piece, which I got at a thrift store. (I wish I had a way to get to the ones in Silver Spring more easily; there's a gigantic one that has some really great stuff.) It's, as far as I can tell, an 80s (or earlier) MIG pilot helmet/cap, possibly Soviet. Since this photo, I've taken off the green/greyish straps and painted the ear cups antique gold.

I've also just acquired a pair of WWI-ish spats/legcovers, which should be arriving soon, and a really lovely gun belt for my homemade ray gun.

Speaking of which, I made a ray gun :D It's not especially pretty, honestly, but I like it. I think it may end up getting a coat of hammered copper paint as I'm not entirely happy with the way the silver looks. It's made of candleholders (both brass and wood) and the grip from an old wooden toy gun.

Also, while I was at the second hand store today, I came upon a large My Little Pony. since it was only $0.60, I gave in to the urge I've been having and bought it, brought it home, and made this:

My Little Time Lord, based on the macro. He actually need to be fixed a bit-his pocket is the wrong colour and the hourglass cutie mark needs to be neatened up some, but I'm fairly happy with him. (He might end up completely repainted,though; I don't know. I kind of want to wipe the waistocat paint and put a collar and bowtie on him.) He's probably going to end up hanging out with the Joker and Plushie!Cthulhu in my room.

Since Orpheus is doing Jpop night next wek, I have decided that I am going to get into it this time and actually get some appropriate clothes. Having browsed bodyline, I have discovered some ZOMG AWESOME stuff that i must have. Not going to be able to get it all this time, but I'm getting at least a skirt and shirt from there. I also found a drool worthy EGL set on ebay that I'm going to grab next time I have enough moniez. (which will be in a couple weeks, I think.)
Also, I discovered a couple of gorgeous, actual Victorian-looking dresses at fanplusfriend which are amazing but whose prices make me weep. I'm trying to convince myself I don't need one. T_T
This way to the goodies! )
