Steam Punk Lite DIY

Steam Punk Lite

 

Let’s face it, sometimes you don’t want to go all out with a Halloween costume, and that’s okay! Or sometimes you are going to be at work and can’t wear a totally crazy outfit! Totally understandable. Outrageous and elaborate costumes are wonderful but they do take lots of work, and if you’re a person with a extra busy schedule, but want to do more than just carry a cereal box with a knife jammed into it around with you all night, then we’ve got a solution, and it only takes a couple of pieces from your local costume store and some stuff from your own closet!

This Steam Punk Lite look takes all the elements of steam punk and boils it down to the essentials. Brown, black, bronze and gold are the basic color palette. We aren’t going for accuracy, especially if you don’t have the time, just enough to suggest the look is fine. The brown and black gothic striped corset from Chicastic is the BASE and every thing this costume is built around. Pair it with a pair of black or brown leather/pleather/shiny/denim pants and a pair of bronze crystal rhinestone embellished heels (crystals aren’t really steam punk but they’re more fun than plain boots so let’s go with that). Carry your necessities in a purse with some gold metal detailing like this shimmering mesh knuckle duster clutch. Then head over to your closest costume shop and buy a pair of goggles (or paint some old swimming goggles gold, just be sure to tape over the lenses first so that they don’t get painted on, then remove the tape after the paint dries), and then remember that green top hat that you used during the pub crawl during St. Patrick’s day? Spray paint that one black and gold too! Boom, steam punk lite! If you’re at the office, don’t forget to wear a blazer to cover up your shoulders, or a leather jacket if it’s chilly at night!
