This costume is from Alicia, and if you can believe it, it’s her first full completed outfit! She used “faux” button hole designs to complete her coat, and two classy piratey designs on the back to finish it off.
Steampunk designer Heather Luca of Scoundrelle’s Keep pulled together this amazing Steampunk Carousel outfit, featuring the Steampunk Carousel collection and finished off with a cool lock piece on the front panel of her corset!
Jeanelle took lots of photos of this gorgeous Scottish gown she custom made. She used a lot of designs from the Gilded Heraldry pack all around the bottom of the gown.
This self-designed steampunk lolita captain costume is from Jessica in Germany. She added lots of nautical designs around the skirt, and is even rocking an embroidered steampunk lace choker. And that hair!
Mariah is back again, and she decided unleash her inner mermaid this year! She made everything, from the mermaid leggings down to the embroidered spats. She used a lot of designs from the Sea Treasure collection, plus one Little Mermaid design on the back of her bolero. She even made the trident!
This Diva Aquanaut from stitcher Marina was completely inspired by the Urban Threads collection Ocean Blue. She absolutely loved the diver design and that became the center motif for the whole look. She even sculpted the diver helmet herself out of paper mache! The dress itself consists of many parts, including removable sleeves, a corsage, skirt and bolero. They all feature embroidery designs from Ocean Blue and the Nauticus collection, with a few extra designs from here and there.
Miriam made this little raven princess costume for her little one. It not only includes lots of designs from the Clockwork Natura collection, and she added a gorgeous finishing touch with a freestanding lace raven mask!
Sabrina made this amazing bat dress for her daughter’s Halloween wedding. What a stunning use of a single design!
Stitcher Sophie is rocking Steampunk Sailor Moon! What a great combination of a classic anime look with a steampunk update. She’s even added embroidered gears to her fingerless gloves.
Wendy used tons of designs from the Gothic Gala and Briar Rose collection for her stunning Gothic Cathedral Gown. So chic!
